Yesterday, October 6, I faxed a 2-page letter to your department. In the wee hours of the morning today, I was awake thinking about how foolish T-Mobile has made me feel after the experience described in my original fax (included in full below).
I realized that I had had not included important details about my conversation with your T-Mobile customer service representative in Customer Retention / Loyalty. So, I would like to take the time to recount that here:
When the representative told me that she could reduce my monthly bill, I told her that I had been considering switching to Solavei for its prepaid cell plan and that it would make sense because it’s on the T-Mobile network and costs only $49/month for unlimited everything. I then said that another plan I was considering was Straight Talk’s $45/month unlimited plan on the AT&T network. The representative then said something that I knew to be untrue: She said that those companies require roaming whenever you’re not in your main location and that customers do not get service once they start moving around.
Two things that really disappoint and frustrate me about this conversation:
1. Your representative withheld information: She clearly heard me say that I wanted a prepaid unlimited plan in order to save even more money, and she never bothered to mention that T-Mobile offers these plans.
2. Your representative provided false information: She was determined to sign me up for a 2-year commitment and make her commission, and therefore said whatever it took – including that customers on Solavei, Straight Talk, and other prepaid cell service plans don’t have reliable service.
In a conversation on October 7, 2012, with T-Mobile Customer Care, I was told that the 14-day buyer’s remorse option does not apply to me because:
1. I am an existing customer: What kind of customer service is this when someone who has been loyal to a company for 8+ years is told that they do not receive the same courtesy as a brand-new customer?
2. My new contract includes a discount: Why would I go from an out-of-contract to in-contract if I didn’t get a lower rate? This appears to be a loophole that benefits T-Mobile exclusively.
Given these two points and the fact that I had no T-Mobile service after this conversation, I hope you will do what is right and release me from the contract that I never asked for or wanted in the first place.
