T-Mobile raising the price for printing detailed bills for customers
As we become more immersed in technology, the need to still receive paper billing may become a thing of the past. Accessing online accounts provide users quick and easy access to their monthly statements from the comfort of their homes. For those who still prefer being mailed their monthly bills, T-Mobile is raising the charge for it. If fact, it's being increased by $1.50 per line which places the new charge at $3.49 per line. You'll still receive the same detailed billing you've been accustomed to getting; except it's going to cost you even more. Sure it's great to meticulously check out every inch of the bill and inspect call records, usage, service charges, and applicable taxes. So why the hike in prices you say? One must consider the cost of printing all those sheets of paper and mailing it out to the millions of subscribers that prefer the option.

Yea, what has gotten into Tmobile lately? First they raise the overage rate now this.

But the again, some of those detailed bills for family plans can be 50+ pages, so I guess I see their viewpoint.

Yes, and each one of those 50+pages represents income for the carrier. Well, they must figure since you can't use their PCS service in a big building, they shouldn't have to send a bill to one either...

Detailed billing on a cell phone bill should be $432 per page. You people that are stuck in the dark ages and don't get your bills online need to step into the 21st century. Entire forests will thank you.

For those who are tired of constantly being overcharged by cell companies via surcharges and gimmicks, there is relief. I work for the consumer advocacy division of the company Validas, where we electronically audit and subsequently reduce the average cell bill by 22 percent through our website,http://www.fixmycellbill.com . Put simply, Validas guards against frivolous and unnecessary charges that inflate your cell bill way more than it should be for your usage. You can find out for free if fixmycellbill.com can modify your plan to better suit your needs by going to the website. For more info, check out Validas in the national news media, most recently on Fox News athttp://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/consumer/conlaw/lower_cell_phone_bills_072409 . Good luck to everyone reading on cutting your wireless costs. My email address is dylan@fixmycellbill.com for anyone who wants advice about achieving fair cell phone rates.

I don't have TMobile, but can't you just print your bill on-line for free? As MrTelephoneMan said though, why do you need a paper copy of the bill. With today's drive to be "green", I'm not surprised to see TMobile take this step. This decision is probably not based on money as much as it is contributing to the environment. We live in an electronic age and I hope eventually everyone will embrace it, there is very little need for a paper copy of your cell phone bill. Electronically you can import the data into a spread sheet and filter anything you want. You can't do that with a paper bill.
