How to Request Termination of Service from PLDT

How to Request Termination of Service from PLDT

This post was originally written back in August 2015. I have updated the content in May 2019 when we submitted another termination of service from PLDT since there were changes to the process.

When we moved out of our apartment back in 2015, we went through the request of termination of service from PLDT since we no longer needed the line we had in the apartment. Back then, the whole process was purely online.

When we moved out of our condominium, we discovered that the request for PLDT line termination changed. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case now.

Steps to Terminate Your PLDT Line

Before requesting for PLDT line termination, make sure that all your bills are settled. They will not process your request if there are outstanding payments in your account.

It is also important to note that for the PLDT Disconnection Request to push through, you need to have finished your two-year contract and you did not apply for any recent upgrades (i.e. Telpad add-on, FamCam, etc).

If you are unsure about when your two-year contract ended and if you had any recent upgrades, call 171. The customer service representative will be able to help you find that information.

Once you have settled all your outstanding balances, head over to the nearest PLDT branch and submit a letter of request to terminate your account.

You can find a fillable and downloadable letter of request here.

Aside from your letter of request, make sure you have two government-issued IDs with you as the customer service representative will need those to verify if you are indeed the account holder.

Aside from your request for termination of service from PLDT, bring with you your telephone unit and modem. You need to surrender both for the request to move forward.

Once you surrender these items, they will provide an acknowledgment receipt that these items have been returned to PLDT. Make sure you keep that receipt – just in case!

As I was speaking with PLDT’s customer representative, she urged me to just transfer my existing line to our new place. If you’re looking into transferring your line instead of disconnecting, I have an article about that below.

But since I already have an existing PLDT line in the house we moved into, I pushed through with the disconnection.

  1. Hi Mom,

    I want to terminate my Ultera subscription, I guess we are on a new lock in period. Reason is that service has stopped, we reported this more than a month ago, no support person comes over after 3 appointments, last 1 was yesterday. Been to their office twice and they reasoned out that it was because they do not have enough support people anymore – Good reason to terminate service and find a better one but is this a valid reason to terminate contract without having to pay the pre-termination fee? Can we ‘not pay’ for already more than one month of no service?

    • Hello Cesar. Unfortunately, I can’t answer this for you since I’m not from PLDT. But you can add this to your termination request. Perhaps they will consider it since the issue is on their end.

  2. Hi Kim, I do have an iPhone plan 30 months in contract since July 2017. I assume that after 30th month of payment my bill will end as well as the agreement would be automatically terminated since I’ve paid bills for 2yrs and six months. However, this month, I receive a bill from PLDT stated that I need to pay my monthly bill. How could it be possible? Well, the plan I subscribe was not yet fully terminated by PLDT since I can still access (call & txt and use of data). What am I suppose to do?

  3. hi! am out of 3-year lock down period and thinking of having my account terminated due to slow and intermittent connection, but i was told by the PLDT customer service that i need to pay the termination fee of P500.00? is there really a fee? and to think lagi pa akong advance payment in my monthly billing.

    • Hi Ice, I was out of the lock-down when I asked our line to be terminated. I don’t remember being asked to pay for a termination fee. They just asked me to return the phone and wifi modem.

  4. Hi mom Kimberly, im a student and Im planning to transfer or change location yun pldt namin as soon as possible..hopefully 3rd week of June before my summer class start though more than a month palang po ako gumagamit. What is the best thing i should do po? Do i have to pay anything about the change location?Thank you & Godbless

  5. Hi ! What if I’ll move the service to the new address and by chance happened that PLDT is not available in my new address. Do I still need to pay for an early termination fee?


  6. Hi Kim b4 the lock in period expired Pldt called us na my libreng tablet kmi kasi valued customer kmi at we pay on time daw nalaman nlng nmin na naka tied up uli kmi for another 2yrs.
    Panloloko ginawa sa amin.
    Pwede ba ipaterminate e2?

    • They offered the same thing to us, but we didn’t agree to get the tablet after asking many questions sa salesperson na tumawag. Unfortunately, once you accept it, locked in ka ulit. I’m not sure if there’s a way around it, but maybe you can go to the branch and ask about it.

    • Had the same experience. Those addtl 2 years was a pain since the Internet speed is the same for quite a alot of money from the last 4 years. Huhuhu

  7. Hi Kimberly, This is helpful. Just wanna ask, if i’m already out of the lock-in period, do i still need to pay the termination fees?

  8. Hi Kim

    Thank you for your helpful blog. I filed for TOL too but still i got billed for another month. Did the same happen to you ? My cut off was 28th of the month and we filed on the 31st of the month. Any info would help. Really troublesome without the 171 helpline. Thank you very much

    • Hi Kim,

      What plan did you get? Is the 2500 termination fee the standard fee? When I went to PLDT they said that the termination fee is the cost of your monthly fee x 3 months if you were not able to finish the 2 year contract/lock-in period.

  9. I had problem with pldt regarding upgrading, after upgrading to fibr, my ultera still genarate bills, now im having multiple account. Akala ko automatic na yun upon upgrading, why they use the term upgrade tapos mgkakaroon lng pala ako multiple account.

  10. hello bakit kelangan ng pre termination? sory but nore sure kasi sa rules nila.umabot kami ng 1 yr. ok lang ba wala ng termination request?

  11. di ba parang fraud yon kasi di ka naman oaoa terminate oaoa transfer ka lang ng line dba parang nang sscam ang PLDT dto

    • If you read the whole post, this is about termination of line. Meaning, you’re not going to keep the line. I have a different post about line transfer, which I did for a different account.

  12. Hi. I want my line to be transferred as well and lock in period will end on Jan 2019. As per the agent aside from the P1,100.00 transfer fee mag rerefresh din yung contract. Which I dont think is fair bec I really wanted to finish the 2year lock in period so that I wont be needing to pay for the termination fee which is 3 times of my monthly bill. 🙁 and per the terms and conditions its not indicated.

  13. Hi! Just went to a PLDT business office and terminate my line. Yep, all I did was submit my letter of request for termination and copy of my valid ID. Unfortunately, they just told me to just wait until the account or line has been fully closed. No reference number provided or like guarantee to me that they will close the account. I mean, no trail. I just need to know how will I know if my account has been closed already.

    So maybe I will just wait for few weeks.

  14. Are they really quick about transferring service? We will be moving to a new location in 6 months, but would like to start a connection now.

  15. Hi, Good day ma’am Kimberley Reyes!
    Thanks for sharing. Ask lang po if nkapagbayad kapa ng x3 of your monthly bill? Or just the termination fee lang which is 2,500?

  16. Thank you for this. This is pretty helpful. We actually moved out already and I haven’t had the line cut yet as we thought it would be automatic. Will let you know if I succeed!

  17. Magkano po kaya termination fee? kase ipapaterminate ko na sana yung additional plan dun sa dating plan. Ang sabi ng pldt representative kelangan bayaran yung termination fee which is 2,500 at yung remaining months at meron pa device cost. I don’t think kung dapat eto talaga bayaran kase sobrang laki po bayaran para lang sa termination.
