Hi. Have some broblems with my phone.
Top up five days ago 5, today my credit is 0.
Called t mobile, they told me that they charged me for recieving email, because this phone is mainly about emails.... I never read email in my phone and dont use internet at all.Well, once....
They told me to change the phone and that is the only option.

Thats impossible!!

I don't know T-Mobile's rules but it seems that you need a carrier which does NOT require data plans.

You've used data at some point, or perhaps its been trying to use data.
options (wrench icon) - mobile network - data services: OFF

Then all should be well.

Maybe that will teach people to read the fine print. The carriers like to catch people with these charges.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button
