    Emergency T-MOBILE stealing money

    BEWARE T-mobile stealing money on $3 month plan. If you don't even use the phone they send a text message that says your monthly allowance is up and you are now being charged $0.10 per minute and message.

    I had the plan for 9 months. They never took my money or changed my plan.

    I have a cell shop and I receive plenty complaints about the $3 a month plan, so I tried it myself and can confirm T-Mobile is stealing. I'm happy you're having a good experience with the service.

    Emergency T-MOBILE stealing money

    Isn't the $3/mo plan essentially $0.10/min and text anyway? How are they stealing exactly? I'm confused. Are they taking more than $3/mo away from your balance if you don't use the phone?

    Please explain further.

    Perhaps you are misreading or misapplying what it says when you do #646# to see how many minutes are left?

    After 30 min/msg, flat rate of $0.10 per min/msg apples.

    Does the balance expire if not used?

    Yes. $3 per month is the minimum charge. The unused balance expires at the end of the 30 days.


    I have had a line on the $3 plan for 7 months with T Mobile deducting the $3 every 30 days as expected.

    That's how the plan works. It's not TMobile stealing it's how they set things up. For $3 a month it seems fair.

    The $3 a month gets deducted from the balance and then that gives you 30 min of talk/text combination. After the month if you don't use it the $3 is still gone. If you use all 30 then it dips into your balance beyond just the $3 monthly fee. It's basically 10 cents a min/text anyways but the first 30 don't further dip into your balance.

    I just set up a line today on that plan. For what it gives me I love the price
