I keep on reading posts like this on some of my favorite sites. They all describe the same process/formula more or less. The latest is due to T-Mobiles upcoming SMS rate increase.
It goes like this: Carrier A raises its per message SMS rate. This is a material breach of Carrier A’s contract with you. According to your contract with Carrier A you have X days to call them and cancel your contract without any fees.
Now I have read about this on Fatwallet, BBforums, and hundreds of other places. Every time a carrier raises their SMS rates somebody is bound to mention it.
So I have to ask. How many people have actually done this? What carrier did you do it with? Last of all did you manage to port your number? Was it actually worth the trouble? I am just curious to hear some actual experiences.
