T-Mobile could unlock your phone sooner
T-Mobile may shorten the period that both prepaid and post-paid customers have to wait for a phone unlock code.
Sometimes small changes are the most important. TmoNews, a site that exhaustively reports everything T-Mobile, reported Monday that the carrier will make it easier for customers to unlock their T-Mobile phones. Instead of having to wait three months (90 days), post-paid customers can obtain an unlock code after just 40 days beginning January 21. Prepaid customers will see a shorter wait period as well, 60 days instead of 90 days, provided they have an account balance of at least $10 and have refilled their service within the last 30 days.
The news comes via an unidentified tipster, and T-Mobile has yet to confirm any details. But considering what a gain it would be for customers, we hope it's true.
