I have several T-Mo lines, most of them I pay for. Several years ago, I took advantage of a promo for a tablet that gave me lifetime free data. I stopped using the tablet long ago, and in October decided to cancel the line -- it was free, and I never used it, I thought, so why should T-Mobile bother to keep it on my account? I called T-Mo customer service and did so, while at the same time I upgraded my voice lines to Magenta Max +. A couple of weeks later, I called to take advantage of a new phone promo, and after going through most of the process, was informed that I was ineligible because I had canceled a line and could not use ANY promo for 90 days. This even though the line I canceled was free, and canceling meant no revenue loss to T-Mo. I said I had not been informed of this when I canceled the line and would not have canceled had I known it, and was told by the CS rep (my “Expert”) that it’s T-Mobile’s policy. I asked how was I to know that, and was told sorry, it’s T-Mobile’s policy.
I still seem to be unable to take advantage of promos, and I am wondering where - and whether - T-Mo’s Terms of Service inform the customer of this.
