Recently, you may have heard about text messaging fees increasing in price for Cingular customers. The $.10 to $.15 jump is enough to piss off a few people I’m sure. So if you’re a Cingular customer and hate the new rates or just want to ditch your service altogether, now’s your chance.
Cingular points out in their ToS agreement the following:
“IF WE INCREASE THE PRICE OF ANY OF THE SERVICES TO WHICH YOU SUBSCRIBE… YOU MAY TERMINATE THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT PAYING AN EARLY TERMINATION FEE… PROVIDED YOUR NOTICE OF TERMINATION IS DELIVERED TO US WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE FIRST BILL REFLECTING THE CHANGE.”
As The Consumerist points out, the price bump for texting doesn’t occur until January 21st, 2007. So come January, have that phone of yours ready, put on a pot of coffee, and get ready to rumble.
