Simply call 202 and give 30 days notice. There may be termination fees but you do need to stop any upgrade going through in your name.

If the split is amicable then perhaps inform your ex what you are doing so he can apply in his own name.

If the split is not amicable, don't forget that legally his phone belongs to you and if necessary you can report it as lost or stolen, in which case the phone will be barred and your ex will then have to apply in his name.

@Kelly1 If your ex does have to apply in his own name he will have to pass a credit check to get a contract.
