Metro by T-Mobile reverses $15 SIM-swap fee after public outcry

Last month, Metro by T-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS) started charging customers a $15 fee whenever they put their SIM card in a different phone. The fee has technically existed for years, but it wasn’t enforced well — customer support or sales representatives often canceled the charge. Metro’s new policy made the fee mandatory, and the $15 charge didn’t even include taxes.
Following coverage by several news outlets, and complaints from angry Metro subscribers on Reddit and other sites, the carrier has now walked back on the fee. Read MoreMetro by T-Mobile reverses $15 SIM-swap fee after public outcry was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
