pretty lame since i did this before. Well if they dont want a sale lol


Someone paying for a monthly data plan (especially if it's limited) gives them more profit in the long run than a phone.


Never really had the need since I can just use wifi. I guess im just one of those people who dont need data.

Pretty sure they can deny service to whoever they want.


Yup.

TC, you should really explain the entire situation. I have an odd feeling that you are leaving some things out.


I went to a tmobile stand ask them I want to buy a new smartphone, they say okay checks my account then says sorry but we cant sell you any phone if you dont have a current data plan. I say why not? Im paying for the just phone so I shouldnt be talked into a different plan. Tmobile guy says yeah well if you dont update your current plan we cant sell you a phone.

EDIT: I was able to buy a phone from tmobile before without data and they told me Im suppose to have data but they still let me get a new phone


Sounds right to me. If you buy a smartphone a data plan is required.

Why not buy an unlocked phone and use one of their prepaid plans?

You just had an inept sales Rep. No salesman will turn down an outright handset purchase. Any sale still goes towards commission, and every tick counts.
