T-Mobile expands reach of Early Termination payment scheme to more carriers
T-Mobile is expanding the reach of its Early Termination Fee (ETF) payment offer to cover more carriers, after seeing high transfers and more than 80,000 "breakup letters" published to social media. The carrier told Re/code that the plan, launched last week and pays up to $350 per line transferred to it, will now be extended to customers of US Cellular and 12 other smaller carriers. T-Mobile will also be expanding the number of handsets that can be traded in, and will also accept damaged phones, though at a lower level of credit.
