I've already told you how I've tried to move all of my bill-paying online because it's not only easier, but the greener option as well. How would you feel if a company started charging you for not paying a bill online?
On Sept. 12, T-Mobile will start charging a $1.50 mandatory fee to customers who still use paper billing. I'm all about doing what's best for the environment, but this imposed $1.50 charge for each account per month is a dirty way to go about it.
Just think of all of the people who don't have access to computers — or who don't know how to use a computer or the Internet, for that matter — and are stuck with this fee unless they opt into paperless billing through their T-Mobile accounts. In my opinion, they should reward those who pay their bills online with something like more monthly minutes, not tack on a fee for those who are helpless and don't have a say.
