If you need to reduce your monthly T-Mobile bill, keep reading to find out how.

Review your monthly bill

Take the time to read and understand your bill, every month.  This helps to ensure that you are being billed for the services and the amounts that you agree to.  When we skip reviewing your bills, you can find yourself paying for things that you shouldn’t be.

According to the Better Business Bureau, there were 19,037 complaints lodged against T-Mobile over the past three years.   These complaints range from;

  • Customers not receiving promotional rates that they signed up for
  • Double billing
  • Charges for services that customers didn’t use or agree to
  • Fraudulent charges
  • Installation or other fees that should have been waived

In some cases, customers signed up for special promotions that would give them gift cards or credits toward their service that were not received.

Get the services that you need

When you purchase service through a telecommunications provider, they may sell you a bundled product to keep your cost low.  In some cases, this may not always be the best deal because you are paying for services that you may never use. If you opt for a lesser plan, you may be able to save yourself some money each month.

In other cases, you may be paying for more than what you need.  If you don’t use a lot of data, you may be able to reduce your data plan to an amount that you use.  You still have access to a data plan, just at a lower monthly rate.

Cell phone companies often run special promotions to upgrade your phone to a newer model.  While getting something new can be exciting, it can end up costing you more money in the long run.  You may be tacking on an additional fee to finance your phone or an extra charge after the promotional rate runs out.  Unless you absolutely need a new phone, consider holding onto your old one for a while to help keep your costs low.
