T-Mobile Removes EMP Migration Fee

Update: Apparently “eligible” means out of contract, so those still in contract obviously can’t migrate until finished. That makes sense. Loyal customers, T-Mobile hasn’t forgotten about thee.

Nothing much else to see here, other than the fact that T-Mobile knows loyal customers deserve something and that … [read full article]
