Yesterday we learned that Verizon would be tweaking its early termination policy so that an ETF wouldn’t start decreasing until the eighth month of a contract. Now a rumor suggests that T-Mobile’s got a policy change of its own in the works.
Our pals at TmoNews have gotten word from a “trusted source” that T-Mobile plans to increase the price of its SIM Starter Kit that’s available for existing T-Mobile phones or unlocked devices. The SIM Starter Kit is currently priced at $10, but it’s said that T-Mo will soon bump that price up to $15.
It’s suggested that the reason for this change could be an attempt to increase T-Mobile’s revenues. While a 50 percent price increase may sound like a lot, I’m betting that a lot of folks buying the SIM Starter Kit will just shell out the extra 5 bucks to get the SIM for their phone.
