VoC - Voice of the Customer
Thank You T-Mobile for listening to the Voice of the Customer. Although I personally agree with Paperless billing for the sole purpose of saving our world (less paper means less dead tress) I did disagree with charging customers to do so. Simply because not everyone (yet) has access to a PC to check a bill. Thanks again for listening and I hope the alternative you find is benefici...

Although it's nice that they're NOT going to charge to get a bill, they seem to do this with all their new fees.
