T-Mobile to Kill Off Premium SMS Programs
T-Mobile today said that it will "terminate all billing for premium SMS, except for charitable and political giving" as soon as feasible. The move is a response to customer complaints about the fraudulent billing practices of some premium SMS providers. T-Mobile says it has already ceased doing business with one of the largest such companies. This change does not impact T-Mobile's standard SMS service, nor does it affect purchases made via SMS through device marketplaces or applications. T-Mobile customers who believe they've been charged inappropriately for premium SMS services can request a refund from T-Mobile.
THIS WILL CAUSE A LOSS IN CUSTOMERS FOR TMOBILE -> TAKING MY BUSINESS TO CRICKET
I can't help but wonder if some cosmic rift caused both this and the death of Sylvia Browne in the same week. Maybe tomorrow the post office will stop offering discount postage for junk mailers.
