How to cancel T-Mobile wireless, internet, and TV service
It’s a new year, and that means time for a new you. Or at least it might be time for a new wireless provider. If you find yourself on the magenta network and seeking a way out, we have you covered. This is everything you need to know on how to cancel your T-Mobile service.
The Un-Carrier prides itself on not charging any Early Termination Fees or ETFs. Will that translate to an easy cancellation experience? Let’s find out the steps you need to get out of wireless service and internet and TV.
How to cancel T-Mobile wireless service
T-Mobile’s wireless service is where most people start with the carrier, so it may be the first place you look when you want to break free. After all, some Sprint users find themselves on the magenta network without ever having signed up in the first place. Luckily for you, T-Mobile takes the no-contract structure very seriously. You’re only responsible for the remaining balance due on your phone, tablet, or other devices.
After you’ve wrapped up the costs associated with your devices, it’s time to make a phone call. Ensure that you have all of your account information close at hand, and then dial 1-877-453-1304 to speak with a representative. You can also schedule a callback on T-Mobile’s website under the Support tab.
If you want to remove a line from your T-Mobile account, you’ll need a phone call for that as well. You can manage data add-ons and other additional features in the T-Mobile app. You can cancel T-Mobile’s prepaid service by removing AutoPay from your account and allowing the funds to expire, too.
Once you’re ready to set yourself free from T-Mobile, here are a few other top carriers to look into:
How to cancel T-Mobile internet service
T-Mobile offers internet service, and it’s as easy to manage as any other wireless plan. You won’t have any ETFs or contracts to worry about, but you may have to account for equipment rentals like a modem or router. Start the cancelation process by gathering your account information and any equipment you’ll need to get rid of.

Now, T-Mobile will once again ask you to schedule a callback to go through the entire process. Make sure not to miss the call when the customer service agent attempts to reach you or be ready to call them back at 1-877-453-1304. After you cancel your service and settle your last month of payments, make sure to drop your equipment off at a nearby T-Mobile store.
How to cancel TVision TV service
One last T-Mobile service you might have signed up for is TVision. T-Mobile made a big deal about its move from TVision Home to TVision Live around the end of 2020, but it doesn’t matter now. The carrier has already shut down its service in favor of YouTube TV — the very service that TVision sought to replace.
On the bright side, there are no steps to take or hoops to jump through. TVision said its farewells at the end of April 2021, so the service is well and truly gone by now.
