T-Mobile’s “No Contract” Cellphone Plans

May 2016: This action was voluntarily dismissed without prejudice. The reasons have not been disclosed.

February 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against T-Mobile USA for, among other things, allegedly deceptively advertising “no contract” cellphone service plans. Plaintiffs claim that the company deceptively advertises its “no contract” service plans as having no hidden fees when, in reality, T-Mobile sends bills for the entire amount due under a separate agreement to pay for the device (different from the service plan agreement) when a customer leaves T-Mobile for another service provider, in violation of Florida law. The lawsuit was transferred to federal court in April 2016. (Farhi et al v. T-Mobile USA, Inc., Case No. 16-cv-80580, S. D. FL.)
