According to some tidbits at the TmoNews Forums and HowardForums, T-Mobile subscribers have been able to add the MyFaves feature on to their accounts for free. MyFaves is T-Mobile’s distinguishing service that allows unlimited, any-network calls to five phone numbers of the caller’s choosing. More info after the jump.
So far, it seems the most successful process for accomplishing this is as follows:
•Call 611 from your T-mobile handset or 877-453-1304 from a landline
•Say “Cancel” at the automated prompt – this connects you with a “Retentions Department” representative
•Ask for the “Free MyFaves Add-On”
•Depending on the rep, you may be required to agree to a contract extension
If all goes well, you will have MyFaves added on to your current rate plan, without any additional fees. Please note, a contract extension varying from 1-2 years may be required, though it has been reported of the add-on being given without an extension. There have also been reported issues with the add-on not being compatible with corporate or company-discounted lines, though your mileage may vary.
This has been reported as a very limited time promotion, ending as early as today, January 19th. If you’re interested, best bet is to try now.
