    Hi Guys and Gals,

    To anyone who has a T-mobile contract that was taken prior to Jan 2004, or to anyone who has upgraded, you now have the right to cancel your contract as T-Mobile has decided to start charging for itemised billing.

    This represents an increase above the retail price index and because of this in your terms and conditions it states you can terminate your contract immediately without penalty, and as such you end up keeping your phone too.

    Look at the terms and conditions

    Part 2 - Our Agreement
    (a)(iii) B

    Part 7 - When The Agreement Ends
    (a) - First 3 lines.

    Now T-Mobile have been advising customers that they will be charged for itemised billing on their next bill, and according to them, they have only just started sending out leaflets with your bill from 19th Jan 2004 to all those whose bill cycle falls after this. So you may have to wait till your next bill before you can exercise your right to do this.

    They have also in very small print stated at the bottom of this leaflet that the increase in itemised billing represents an increase in the retail price index (RPI) - but have not mentioned that you can cancel your existing contract as a result.

    Anyhoo, this can be a way for many to save money, so remmber to exercise this right, cause its very rare to be able to quote terms and conditions in any contract nowadays in your favour!

    Remember to be firm with the customer services and if they give you any problem ask to speak to a manager. They CANNOT contradict what is written in the terms and conditions of your contract as it is a legally binding agreement. Always go by what the contract says...a contract is a contract is a contract.

    Cheers and happy hunting,

    Emissary

    ...but do bear in mind that it is highly likely that your contract phone is network-locked to T-Mobile, so you need to go to the extent of finding an unlocker to free it before using another network.

    Luckily my contract was against a ngage which was unlocked by default :)

    So it works just fine with my orange sim!

    Another good tip is to cancel your tmobile direct debit before your final bill arrives.. last time I canceled due to a RPI increase (paying for freephone numbers a few years back) they charged me the full cancellation fee.. which took a few heated phone calls to sort out.. not this time!
