Freedom to Pray is a grassroots effort to bring attention to T-Mobile’s egregious actions of charging an additional $0.01 per minute to customers who call prayer lines using free conference call services. One such service affected is FreeConferenceCall.com, for which 40 percent of its traffic involves prayer groups.

This movement provides a means of response for faithful prayer warriors and individuals and groups who support them to advocate against T-Mobile and on behalf of keeping prayer lines free for everyone, including people of all faiths.

  • The right to pray for free is under attack by T-Mobile. Despite its aggressive advertising campaign as the #Uncarrier, T-Mobile is blatantly, but surreptitiously charging an additional $0.01 per minute to customers who call prayer lines using free conference call services. Join me in standing with others to #KeepPrayerFree: http://freedomtopray.org/.
  • Hundreds of thousands of T-Mobile customers call into prayer lines multiple times a week to pray with others for long periods of time. Now, T-Mobile is charging them. I just signed the petition showing my support to #KeepPrayerFree and you should, too: http://freedomtopray.org/.
  • Prayer should never come with a cost. Ask T-Mobile to #KeepPrayerFree and remove its $0.01/minute charge for using free conference lines by signing this petition now: http://freedomtopray.org/.
  • Although T-Mobile is the only phone carrier assessing this “out-of-plan” charge to its customers, other carriers will likely follow if we don’t make our voices heard. Sign the petition now! http://freedomtopray.org/. #KeepPrayerFree

Change Carrier

T-Mobile users can stand in solidarity to #KeepPrayerFree by changing to a new cell phone carrier away from T-Mobile and its related companies (Metro PCS, Simple Mobile, Ting, Ultra Mobile, Project Fi). Here are four easy steps to switch carriers while keeping your current phone number:

 

Step 1: Choose a new carrier, plan and cell phone and contact the provider (do this before you cancel your current provider or you won’t be able to port your number).

Step 2: Provide your new provider with necessary information about your current service, including your customer account number as it appears on your recent bill and account password, if requested.

Step 3: Allow your new provider to contact your current cell phone company to begin the porting process. You do not need to take any further action.

Step 4: Once your new service is activated, call your previous carrier to confirm your existing service was canceled.
