T-Mobile: no more contracts?

Posted: Updated:

The wireless service provider T-Mobile will explain Tuesday a possible change in their business model.

Instead of a traditional contract, the company representatives said, T-Mobile would charge an upfront and a monthly fee for a cell phone and a monthly fee for the service.

The service charge would include an unlimited calling, texting and data, the company officials told us. Once the device is paid off, the phone payment would be waived.

We will follow up and let you know once this change becomes official.
