Cancel Time! T-Mobile Rate Change Starts Today

A T-mobile text message rate change that just went into effect means that customers can cancel their contract without early termination fee.

While some fees are decreasing, others are increasing. Sending a text message from US to Canada goes up 5 cents to 15, as will the charge for receiving one while roaming internationally.

These constitute what are known as material changes to contract, which void the contract for both parties and make it so they can’t charge you the usual $175 fee if you try to cancel service.

Read this for how to go about it, and here’s how to keep your same number. — BEN POPKEN
