T-Mobile Alters its Wireless Contract Early Termination Policy

Here's a mobile phone contract update for T-Mobile subscribers. The carrier appears to have changed its policy towards the Early Termination Fees (ETF) for its mobile phone contracts.

The new T-Mobile Early Termination Fees (ETF) policy indicates that consumers that are moving out of the carrier's coverage area or overseas will be charged with the fee. However, customers moving overseas due to military deployment will not be charged with an ETF.

This T-Mobile Early Termination Fees (ETF) policy change took effect on February 8th, 2011. This means that consumers who cancelled service (without paying the ETF) before February 8th will not be charged with the fee.

So why did T-Mobile enforce this new cell phone contract policy? Well, the word on the street indicates that the change was made to discourage the abuse by some consumers who are specifically moving out or signing contracts before they knew they were moving overseas.

What do you think of this change? Do you think that it's fair?

Stay tuned for more wireless contracts news and information.

Actually Tmobile has been advertising this specific feature for J1 and F1 visa holder through their stores to lure them into signing 2 years contracts that, at that time, could be cancelled with no EFT.
The Tmobile clerk explicitly advertised this to me effectively convincing me to sign a contract while I was completely clear I was goin to leave the country after 12 month.
This is at least unfair commercial practice... if not more.
