this was quoted from mesallem it pretty much sums it all "Well you got ot see it this way, Tmobile is probably losing money on this particular client because of the excessive usuage, also the excessive usuage could put strain network/tower making it unable for other users in the area to make calls. The TOC clearly state that if Tmobile finds that you are a burden to the network, ie excessive usage, then they are more than welcome to drop you. 8000 minutes for nights and weekends is alot of usuage during that time, and I'm willing to bet you have a low end rate plan. They would have not dropped you if you were considered a platnium customer meaning 99.99 dollar rate plan or above. The point is, if you're going bare minimum and using up the lots of "free" minutes, you're not making them a profit and so they'd rather you leave rather than keeping taking a hit. Just to let you know too, Sprint, Verizon, and Cingular all the have the same policies, so if I were you, I'd tone down the usage if you change carriers.Originally Posted by fenix1
Also on a side note, I've heard of people who talk continously from 9pm to 7am daily and rack up 10 hours of talk time a day, thats nearly 18,000 minutes a month. THe problem with that, is that most people who use there phone excessively during those times end up going with the lowest rate plan, like the old 400 minute family plan that was 49.99. No matter how you see it, the company is losing money."
