There's a chance I might have to leave HK to return home in the near future and I have a couple of 18 month contracts with PCCW (Mobile, tv, broadband). By the time this happens I'll have had the services for 12 months but cash is incredibly short at the moment and I don't think I'll be able to afford to pay up the remainder of my contracts.
I know it's really not the right thing to do but does anyone know what the worst case scenario is if I just leave the country? I currently pay at 7-11 every month so there is no autopay on my account. I do plan on returning to HK in the future (even if just for a holiday) so I don't want to be arrested upon entering the country, or to have a huge hit on my credit rating or anything.
So can anyone explain the possible consequences of this? And I can then decide on whether or not to pay up.
Also, bonus question:
I will have stayed in my apartment for the minimum 12 month period by the time I need to go home to the UK however I have been told by friends that I can only give my 1 months notice after the 12 month period, meaning I effectivly have to pay for 13 months rent. Does anyone have any experience with this? I understand it probably comes down to what you can get away with each landlord but again I really won't be able to afford an extra months rent when I won't be living or working here.
