Did I mention this is really stupid? Those of you who are still T-Mobile customers, what are you guys putting down as your end date? You can't bypass that field...

Nvm. It has to be the date you're doing this on.

anyone know if this only applies to post-paid T-mobile customers, or do prepaid (no monthly fee) customers also qualify?

When I was doing the sign up, one of the questions they asked was prepaid/postpaid, so maybe prepaid is covered. If you remember getting crammed, go for it.

Lol if that's your entire duration with T-Mobile, you're a relatively newer customer. I've been with them since 2007, and I did see that drop down. It doesn't go back that far.

As Sprint user, one of the great features is to integrate your number with GV.
