How moronic are some of these companies?
Give me a million dollars next time, and I'll flat out save you the trouble T-mobile - I would've simply and quickly told you "Not a good idea" - yes, let's take away stuff from people whom are already frugal - and then expect fantastic results.
No one picks T-mobile just to pay the same, or close to the big two - they pick T-mobile to save money.
I literally want to put on a solid white glove and smack the person responsible for this decision in the face - promptly telling them they do not deserve their job nor the pay they receive.
they better be,
