Any way to get out of my T-mobile contract?

Legally that is...

My contract ends in March of 2007. Also, how long of a grace period does the FCC grant before your number is given to someone else? In other words, how long do I have after canceling my contract with Tmobile before I can switch to someone else and keep my number?

Merci.

    You can legally end the contract early by paying them around $200. I don't know what the timeframe is for transferring your number, but you should try to run the process all in one go.

    Try making all your calls roaming. They'll kick you off the network.

    Also, you can say you're moving overseas for school. You'll need to fax them a school ID... fake it in photoshop.

    Yeah, because identity fraud is totally legal.

    The first part isn't illegal...that would fall under fraud.

    OP, watch your T-mobile mail for anything that changes the terms of your contract, a bump in text messaging fees or free hours? Complain they changed the contract and cancel it without the penalty clause. This is supposed to work and be all legal like.

    Short of selling your soul to the devil, you would have to pay the $200 cancellation fee.

    as far as getting your phone number under another mobil contract - it will take about a week. They can't stop you from transfering a number that you technically own.

    They're only 1 year contracts...

    You're almost out of it, and it sounds like you just dislike the network.

    The employees aren't stupid. People are just lucky to get away with those kinds of things. It's not exactly hard to notice a massive change in useage patterns though. It'd be real easy to get in a lot of trouble.

    lol, one of their 'suggestions' is to join the army and hope you get deployed out of their coverage area.

    If they have altered any services no matter how small such as adding $.10 to text messages, you can terminate them. There have been several successful threads on fatwallet.com and other sites on terminating your contract. You usually have 30-90 days to terminate during a service agreement change.
