I have never been a T-M customer and ordering the N1 would create and cancel my first line with them, right? So do they have any policies that would restrict me from immediately creating a new Even More Plus account to actually use my N1 on? I think I remember reading about some US Wireless companies banning you from their service for a few months after a canceled account.
Well you're partly right. You won't be able to create a new Even More Plus account. But you won't be banned either. If you try to get a new T-Mobile account, they will just reactivate your old account (along with the Even More plan.) I think you have to be gone for like 90 days before you can get a brand new account.
I guess you could open the Even More Plus account first. (Just go online, select Even More Plus, and buy the SIM card.) Once that line is open. Then follow the procedure discussed in this thread to add the second line to your account (which will eventualy be canceled after the phone arrives.)
If you went under contract ull need to pay ETFs right then & then you can create an even more plus account.
Viper, first of all, there is no ETF when you cancel during the trial period (which is the whole point of this thread). Second (as discussed above), T-Mobile will just reactivate your old account if it is within 90 days, so no, he won't be able to create a new Even More Plus account.
Thanks much for the info. So I guess there's no way around that, aside from opening my 'main' account beforehand, like using a different credit card, etc.?
I was hoping I could just order the phone now and create the EM+ account around a month later because my current Sprint contract isn't over just yet. I now feel a sense of urgency since I assume this trick will no longer work once Google stops selling the phones online and leaves it all up to TM, correct?
