T-Mobile to change method of billing for new post-paid customers starting May 20th
the full charge for the next complete billing cycle, and the activation charge. The first bill will now come four to ten days after a customer starts service. Four days after the each monthly cycle date, the customer will be able to view his/her bill online.Each monthly bill will include the monthly recurring charge for the next billing cycle, EIP where applicable, games, third party charges, overages and premium content. Any changes to a customer's statement that affects billing will be added to the next bill.
Current T-Mobile customers at this point, need not concern themselves with this. New customers who are coming from, say, Verizon, will understand this without a problem. If you are signing up with T-Mobile on May 20th or afterward and are not familiar with "Bill Current", we'd suggest making a bulk purchase of some aspirin because you are going to need them.

Could I use this as a spin to get out of my contract with them?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this lets a customer see their bill sooner than on the current setup, and benefits them because of the 14-day "buyer's remorse" period, yes? Sounds like a headache transitionally, but that it benefits the customer

I have recently discovered that Sprint and Tmo suck.
Going Big Blue or Big Red next time around.

I think this is how I've been paying my bills on my Verizon FIOS service. I guess this is not a big deal for me. Altho it does hurt a bit to dish out 2 month worth of payment at the starting of contract.
