T-Mobile Blocking Twitter SMS

Well, this is going to turn into a firestorm of unbelievable proportions. With T-Mobile blocking Twitter SMS, they have just turned a significant number of bloggers and Twitter users into their arch enemy. I predict within several days T-Mobile will have no choice but to reverse course on this.

I pay for unlimited Text Messages with T-Mobile and I bet that they are not happy that literally thousands of text messages are coming into my phone and the thousands of others using their service.

To block a service that I am paying for is criminal in my opinion. T-Mobile, I have been with you a long long time and I can guarantee that the $1700.00 plus I spend with you each year and the 4 mobile phones I have would be served just as well on Verizon or another carrier.

If you are a T-Mobile user and have a twitter account I would call and ask them why they are blocking the service and raise a big stink. Make the telephone call painful on them. If we tie up their customer service lines enough they will know they have a PR nightmare on their hands.
