Cancel a Billing Item

Overview

Billing items may be canceled directly from the Billing Items screen at any time. Cancellations for most services and solutions may be initiated immediately, with cancellation taking place either immediately or on the billing anniversary.

Note: Data stored on any device, service or solution that is canceled cannot be retrieved after cancellation. Back up all data that should be saved before completing the cancellation request.

What Happens Next

After confirming the cancellation, the billing item cancellation process will begin. If an immediate cancellation was requested, the billing item will be canceled immediately. If a billing anniversary cancellation was requested, the billing item will remain active until the next billing anniversary. Upon its cancellation, the billing item will no longer be active within the Customer Portal. Billing items will also be removed from invoices when all outstanding balances have been paid on the service or solution, if any. For questions about a bill for a cancelled device, create a ticket and select Accounting Request as the ticket subject. Refunds cannot be given for immediate cancellations.
