I think people should stop purchasing services without reading the terms first... Purchase a service, sign a contract and not know the companies policies?

You're right about entering into a contract without first reading the terms, but stupidity notwithstanding, the fact that the customer then specifically called in to specifically ask T-Mobile to disable texting on his phone should be a no brainer. Since when can't features be disabled? I smell a class action lawsuit that will smack T-Mobile way down if it doesn't wise up soon.
No one forced them to signup for service with T-Mobile in the first place. They should have found out if it was possible at first... We need less government and lawsuits in this world.. Not more. Stupidity should not be rewarded.

True, but it shouldn't require a lawsuit to get T-mobile to do the right thing.

i agree with you people should read the contract before signing up. but tm should update it program to allow people to turn that service on and off.

You're finally right about something. A company should not get away with forcing charges against a customer for which the customer has no control and the company won't correct the problem that THEY created. THAT is stupidity.

Don't sign the contract.. Simple as that.

So basically you're saying all people (yourself included) have always gotten exactly as they deserved, no more, no less-because if they sign a contract, well that's tough shit-even if the contract does not specifically define or it is added without the customer's knowledge?

For example, what if Verizon adds "No Ron Paul supporters can use FIOS without paying 1000 dollars extra per month" to YOUR contract without your knowledge...that's okay by you because by your logic, you signed a contract, and therefore should STFU and stop whining and blah blah blippity blah.

No? Didn't think so. You'd scream to high heaven, hire a lawyer if you didn't get your way, and whine your way out of the contract as well.

Yeah. That's classic.

That is not spelled out in the glorious contract you deliberately obtuse person!
It's a policy, not a contract term. Policy != law.

Check out all of the details about the service prior to signing the contract. That includes general service quality and any policies that the company enforces that are not within the contract.
