[Update][BREAKING] T-Mobile Deactivating Accounts?

36


Have any of you been receiving a message like this? Apparently, customers with rooted phones are getting messages like this from T-Mobile.

One thing I’m wondering though, is what the “unauthorized activities” are, according to T-Mobile. Tethering? Removing bloatware like the T-Mobile pack? Software modification?

Do you think ATT has started taking control of T-Mobile this early in the game? As I recall, they did send out similar messages like this one to iPhone users that happen to tether.

I just phoned T-Mobile, they have no comment at this time. We’ll be updating you all with more information as soon as we get it.

 

Update: You’ve been had. That is all.

P.S. Look at the “Tags” below, which have been there the whole time.

Eh? You're reading this? Wow, I'm just as surprised as you are. I've been an avid Android user since October 2009, when I bought my T-Mo myTouch 3G [Black]. Since then, I've moved on to a MyTouch Slide, and now I'm rocking an HTC HD2 with Android. Life couldn't be better. Also, follow me on Twitter! http://www.twitter.com/gockillaz

        Yeah! Well, t mo doesn’t actually have unlimited data anymore! I was throttled last month and the internet was unusably slow for a few weeks!

        I have the “unlimited data” in name. I did switch to Verizon with the Thunderbolt. it is VERY good.

        • Blacksheep427

          the phone is the VERY good part. I still do not know how well I’ll like VZW, but I have switched….

    sounds like a gay AT&T thing. You have a smart phone and its legal to root, dont think tmo would do this…but it is april 1st.

      Yes it is. Happy April Fool’s!

      Sivarter,

      Just out of idle curiosity, what — if anything — does “gay” have to do with ANY part of the equation?

      Nothing whatsoever as far as I can tell. In future, if you want to express your dislike, doubt, or some other disdain for something, may I suggest leaving sexuality out, particularly when it is entirely irrelevant?

      • Chris Brunner

        Clint, your comment is so gay. Just let it go.

        • Joeyk

          2 points Chris :D!!!

    Is this true or not? Because this is ridiculous if it is. How can they tell if your phone is rooted? My G2 was on temp root, just pulled my battery, haha. Is this a April Fools Joke?

    • http://twitter.com/GoCkillaz GoCkillaz

      Yes.

    • http://twitter.com/GoCkillaz GoCkillaz

      Happy April Fool’s, lol.

  • 313dash

    lolololol lmao! You got me I was so worried! lol

  • Saynotopunx

    Except that it would say “456 Free T-Mobile Message:” beforehand.

    HAhahahah very funny….thats why I hate April Fools day…only when I get caught

    Don’t be surprised is carriers or Google do start doing this. Google doesn’t want the carriers to keep messing with the UI so why wouldn’t they start cracking down on users who mess with their baby. This joke may become a reality.

  • Dnasdas

    Ummm NICE TRY but.. It’s no longer illegal under the DMCA to jailbreak your phones anymore. Remember?

  • David

    i must ask, what messaging app is that? i’m liking the ui!
