Question about early termination fee.

This is a question probably for T-mobile reps. I have been with T-mobile since October of 2003. On January 2nd I got another line of service so I could add my wife, so I got the family plan. The signal has not been good where I live ( 30 miles north of Austin, Texas.) So I would like to cancel my service contract early. Now, I am thinking that since the time when I bought the second phone for the second line was January 2nd, that this is probably my date next year that my contract will expire, right? If so, that leaves around 7 months until it expires, which is way too long to put up with all of these dropped calls and overall bad reception. My question is this: Since I have 2 lines on one contract, will I be charged twice, which is $200x2=$...

Secure Mail Connector desktop program???

I had something I downloaded from the T-Mobile site that allowed me to access my MS Outlook mail on my phone (via TZones). My office upgraded OS and I lost the program. I can't find it on TMobile's site to save my life.

Anyone know what I'm talking about and how to get it??


Many thanks

Which phones support manual call forwarding?

I was wondering if there are any phones that allow me to forward calls manually to a specified number. I.E., I am at home and do not want to use any of my whenever minutes, whenever I see an incoming call I would like to have an option of pressing a button and it would forward the call to the home number. I know most phones have the unavailable call forwading feature but since I am not the only person who uses the home line I can't allow it to forward all my missed calls to the home number.

E-Mail without Data Plan or add on?

I have a family shared plan, and 2 of the lines are on blackberry 6230's that I bought off ebay. So they are just phone plans with 500 text messages/mo. I can send email through text messages, but when I try to "send email" it wont sent, it just says "pending". Is there a way to get the blackberrys to send email without getting a data plan?

Samsung e715 indoor reception issue???

Does anyone else have problems getting indoor reception on the e715?

My old Nokia 8265 w/ AT&T used to get great indoors at work and at home. My new e715 has really spotty indoor reception. Mad

I don't know if the problem is T-Mobile service or the internal antenna design (however, my Nokia had an interanl antenna also and no problems).

Thanks.

T-Mobile in So. Cal

I am undecided between T-Mobile and Nextel. I know TMo is more sensible, and allows me to travel overseas with the same phone. Any one have any thoughts on these two for use in Caifornia?

T-mobile or Verizon in NYC area???

I currently use Sprint and am debating between
T-mobile and Verizon.I've read better things about Verizon but T-Mobile gives you more minutes for the same price and has a better selection of phones.
So how is the service in NYC area?
What's the difference between T-zones and unlimited internet?
Can you access msn hotmail thru t-zones?
If you have a phone that supports email clients
would you need t-zones?
thanks

Help getting a new phone

Greetings,

I've been a T-Mobile (Voicestream when I joined) customer for about 2.5 years. My original contract of course ran out about 1.5 years ago. Considering as long as it's been, my old phone is dying, and I wanted to upgrade and get a new phone.

I called up T-Mobile and asked what my options were considering I'd be more than happy to sign up for a new contract. I was told that I would not qualify for a discounted phone and would have to pay far above what any new customer walking into a T-Mobile store would pay for any given phone. The reason given was that the plan I've been under for the past 2.5 yrs has been a $30/mo plan, and in order to get a discounted phone, I would have had to have been on a $40/mo plan or higher for the ...
