If you switched to Sprint to get away from T-Mobile, then T-Mobile is like an ex that you just can’t shake. You might be hopeful that the class action lawsuit can undo the 2020 T-Mobile-Sprint merger.

But sometimes the best way to deal with an ex (wireless service provider), is to cut and run. And the only way to cancel is to call T-Mobile:

  • Dial 611 from your T-Mobile phone
  • Call T-Mobile Customer Care: 1-800-937-8997

If you want to cancel the T-Mobile services of someone who passed away, then you can call this number instead: 1-877-746-0909

  2. Generate a Number Transfer PIN on the T-Mobile App
