So I switch from Cingular to T-Mobile and purchase the $39/1000 anytime minutes and the $20 unlimited data. I then buy the MPx200, reconfigure it to work with T-Mobile and I'm happy as can be... until I get my first bill.
On my bill I have a ton of "Messenger" charges. I never use text messages so I call T-Mobile up, and the rep explains to me that when I registered on their website and downloaded their Secure Mail Connector, they charge for each "Alert" message you get when you get a new email. Wha-wha-what? She bumped me to level 2, and I told the rep if they could show me anywhere on their site where it said they charged for being alerted when you got an email I would be happy to pay for it. He admitted sheepishly that the website made no such mention of the charge and he would be happy to credit my account for the "Alert" costs. How much? Over $42 for one month of usage.
On a positive note, the 2nd level rep was very helpful and nice. But c'mon, hidden charges of that magnitude? How shady is that?
