T-Mobile Confirms You Can Cancel Without Fee Over Texting Price Increase

Just like we told you, T-Mobile customers can cancel their cellphone contract without paying an early termination fee, but this time, T-Mobile itself actually made a public statement saying so!

“Customers may terminate their contract without incurring an ETF soon after receiving their notification of the pricing change,” T-Mobile spokesbot Peter Dobrow told RCR Wireless News.

It ain’t some sort of sneaky consumer scam, it’s actual contract law. Materially adverse changes to contract terms mean the contract can be canceled. Now don’t all run out and get the iPhone at once. — BEN POPKEN
