T-Mobile charging Â£75 to upgrade mobile phones?
In a new scheme designed to stall upgrades and save money until the new financial year, T-Mobile ‘s contract customers will have to fork out Â£75.00 to upgrade their mobile phones. However if a customer doesn’t wish to hand over that cash, T-Mobile is offering a Â£5.00 per month discount in what they are calling a “Christmas loyalty bonus.”
T-Mobile says: “We believe that, in the current economic climate, most customers will welcome the opportunity to make savings on their monthly bills. All customers retain the choice to upgrade their handsets during Q4, but following a review of the eligibility criteria for mobile phone upgrades, some customers will be subject to reduced entitlements.”
The inability for customers to upgrade their handset isn’t going to go down too well I would imagine as most look forward to the upgrade to a better handset. However some may prefer this “Christmas loyalty bonus”. One thing though, funny how the T-Mobile G1 is exempt from the restrictions.
