During this unprecedented time, you have T-Mobile's commitment to help you stay connected as we all navigate through uncharted territory. As we continue to closely monitor the effects of COVID-19, we recognize that your wireless device plays a key role in maintaining business and social connections. Here's how we are currently helping!   



T-Mobile is temporarily waiving Late fees and Suspend and restore fees for those impacted by COVID-19, through June 30.


While we know times are difficult now, save $8 and pay your bill digitally. 

If you are experiencing hardship as a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic and are unable to make a payment or your account becomes past due (including your rate plan costs, handset repayments and device protection payments), contact us and we can help! You can also set up a payment arrangement online by clicking below, which will allow you to separate your past due balance into four payments. 

Some states offer additional consumer protection regulations for those who have device protection plans:
