Update: As a quick update to the post we wanted to ensure clarity so that people don’t start freaking out over the verbiage in the image. A loophole exists in T-Mobile’s systems that allows for employees to remove data features a before customer fulfills the required contract term. This will NOT force a customer to have a data requirement if they do not want…if some representatives in the comments are correct in their interpretation of this image. The language of course is confusing but such is the world of information leaks. Let’s wait a few more days before jumping the gun entirely on what this image truly means.
As of August 8th T-Mobile is making a change to ensure that customers fulfill their contractually obligated data requirements. T-Mobile is looking to ensure that customers fulfill any contractually required data plan. The current loophole that allows for employees to remove the data plan before the end of the data plan contract term will be removed effective August 8th. This will not enforce a data plan for all full price buyers, only the completion of any contractually required data plan.
