Metro by T-Mobile isn’t bringing back the $15 SIM swap fee, its automated systems just broke

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

MetroPCS, now named 'Metro by T-Mobile,' received a fair bit of negative attention last year after it began charging all customers a $15 fee for the privilege of activating a new phone — even after putting a SIM card you already owned into another device. The company reversed the policy after enough customers complained, but there seems to be some confusion about the company bringing back the fee.

Metro has always had a somewhat-ridiculous process for activating new devices.

Metro by T-Mobile reverses $15 SIM-swap fee after public outcry

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

Last month, Metro by T-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS) started charging customers a $15 fee whenever they put their SIM card in a different phone. The fee has technically existed for years, but it wasn't enforced well — customer support or sales representatives often canceled the charge. Metro's new policy made the fee mandatory, and the $15 charge didn't even include taxes.

Following coverage by several news outlets, and complaints from angry Metro subscribers on Reddit and other sites, the carrier has now walked back on the fee.

Metro by T-Mobile now charges a $15 fee every time you swap phones

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

Back in September, the T-Mobile-owned MetroPCS was rebranded to 'Metro by T-Mobile.' Along with the name change, the carrier refreshed its available plans, which looked great on paper; $60/month gets you unlimited LTE data, 100GB of Google Drive storage, Amazon Prime, and other goodies. However, there's a new catch if you plan on switching — you'll have to pay $15 any time you put your SIM card in a new device.

Qualcomm won’t be buying NXP, set to pay $2 billion termination fee

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

Starting all the way back in 2016, Qualcomm set its sights on purchasing NXP. Both being huge semiconductor companies operating in overlapping fields, there was some question of consumer benefit and market competition if the deal went through. EU regulators expressed some concern before relenting, and back in June Chinese regulators were said to be ready to grant their own blessings. Turns out, China's enthusiasm may have been overstated, as Qualcomm is set to terminate the NXP acquisition based on the continued absence of regulatory approval from the Chinese State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), presumably as a result of the ongoing trade tensions between the it and the US.

AT&T is screwing customers by almost tripling a bogus fee

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

If you're an AT&T customer and you've ever read your wireless service bill in detail, you may have noticed something called an "Administrative Fee" featured as one of the line items. Up until early this year, that "fee" was typically assessed at $0.76 per postpaid line - not nothing, but over the course of two years of service, it ends up being a little over $18.

AT&T has now very slyly almost tripled the cost in the last six months.
