GoSmart Mobile Terms & Conditions
Terms & Conditions
Effective February 10, 2016.
Your wireless service is provided by “T-Mobile” (defined as T-Mobile USA, Inc., and its controlled subsidiaries, assignees, and agents). Your agreement for wireless service branded as “GoSmart Mobile®” (“GoSmart Mobile”) is with T-Mobile and includes these Terms and Conditions (“T&Cs”), any applicable supplemental terms and conditions, and your Rate Plan terms, which are available at www.gosmartmobile.com (collectively “Agreement”). Your Rate Plan includes your Service allotments for minutes, messages or data (“Allotments”), rates, coverage and other terms (“Rate Plan”). To the extent any term in your Rate Plan expressly conflicts with these T&Cs, the term in your Rate Plan will govern. Your Agreement applies to each line of Service, although different T&Cs may apply to different lines of Service on your account.
Please read these T&Cs carefully. They cover our relationship with you and important information about:
- GoSmart Mobile services provided to you (“Service”);
- Any equipment for which we provide Service, such as a phone, handset, tablet, or SIM card (collectively, a “Device”);
- Any charges, taxes, fees, and other amounts we charge you or that were accepted or processed through your Device (“Charges”);
- Privacy information;
- Network management practices;
- Limitations of liability; and
- Resolution of disputes by arbitration and class action waiver.
If you give someone your personal account validation information, they can access and manage your account. Those changes will be binding on you. You may establish “Authorized Users” to manage your account so they can:
- Make changes to your account;
- Add or remove services or features to your account;
- Receive notices and disclosures on your behalf;
- Purchase Devices for use with our Service; and
- Incur Charges on your account.
1. Acceptance. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH US STARTS WHEN YOU ACCEPT. You accept these T&Cs by doing any of the following: (a) giving us a written or electronic signature or confirmation, or telling us orally that you accept; (b) activating, using, or paying for the Service or a Device; or (c) opening the Device box. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO ACCEPT, DON'T DO ANY OF THESE THINGS.
When you accept, you're telling us that you are of legal age (which means you are either legally emancipated, or have reached the age of majority as defined in your jurisdiction) and that you are able to enter into a contract.
Notwithstanding the above, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT AND NOT BY ARBITRATION IF YOU OPT OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYSFROM THE EARLIER OF THE DATE YOU PURCHASED A DEVICE FROM US OR THE DATE YOU ACTIVATED A NEW LINE OF SERVICE (the “Opt Out Deadline”). You must opt out by the Opt Out Deadline for each line of Service. You may opt out of these arbitration procedures by calling 1-888-236-1260 or completing the opt-out form located at www.gosmartmobile.com/dispute-resolution. Any opt-out received after the Opt Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your claim in arbitration or small claims court.
For all disputes (except for Puerto Rico customers), whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve your claim by sending a written description of your claim to the address in Section 15 below. We each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. If you and we are unable to resolve the claim within 60 days after we receive your claim description, you may pursue your claim in arbitration. We each agree that if you fail to timely pay amounts due, we may assign your account for collection, and the collection agency may pursue, in small claims court, claims limited strictly to the collection of the past due amounts and any interest or cost of collection permitted by law or this Agreement.
If the arbitration provision applies or you choose arbitration to resolve your disputes, then either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent (see Section 15) to begin arbitration. The arbitration of all disputes will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is commenced. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration of all disputes will be conducted by a single arbitrator, who shall be selected using the following procedure: (a) the AAA will send the parties a list of five candidates; (b) if the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator from that list, each party shall return its list to the AAA within 10 days, striking up to two candidates, and ranking the remaining candidates in order of preference; (c) AAA shall appoint as arbitrator the candidate with the highest aggregate ranking; and (d) if for any reason the appointment cannot be made according to this procedure, the AAA may exercise its discretion in appointing the arbitrator. Upon filing of the arbitration demand, we will pay or reimburse all filing, administration and arbitrator fees. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and attorneys’ fees. In addition, for claims under $75,000 as to which you provided notice and negotiated in good faith as required above before initiating arbitration, if the arbitrator finds that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to a recovery of reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. Except for claims determined to be frivolous, we agree not to seek an award of attorneys’ fees in arbitration even if an award is otherwise available under applicable law. Puerto Rico customers: Refer to Section 14 for details on the Puerto Rico Telecommunications Regulatory Board’s Dispute Procedure.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER. YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR AS A MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you. If you choose to pursue your claim in court by opting out of the arbitration provision as specified above, this Class Action Waiver provision will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other customer, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt out requirements above.
JURY TRIAL WAIVER. If a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, YOU AND WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
3. * Your Term of Service. You are a month-to-month customer. If you terminate your Service, you are responsible for all Charges incurred through the end of your Service term. If we terminate your Service, we will determine the date of termination, and you will be responsible for all usage and Charges through the date of termination.
4. * Cancellation. If you cancel your Service you remain responsible for all Charges incurred through the end of your Service term. GoSmart Mobile Prepaid Service is non-refundable (even if returned during the cancellation period), and no refunds or other compensation will be given for unused airtime balances, lost or stolen prepaid cards, or coupons.
5. Our Rights to Make Changes. We may change, limit, suspend or terminate your Service or this Agreement at any time if you engage in any of the prohibited uses described in Section 17, no longer reside in a T-Mobile-owned network coverage area, or subject to our business policies, practices, and procedures, which we can change without notice. Under certain limited circumstances, we may also block your device from working on our network.
6. * Device Access. We may remotely change software, systems, applications, features or programming on your Device without notice. These changes will modify your Device and may affect or erase data you have stored on your Device, the way you have programmed your Device, or the way you use your Device. You will not be able to use your Device during the installation of the changes, even for emergencies.
7. Service Availability. Your actual Service area, network availability, coverage and quality may vary based on a number of factors including network capacity, terrain and weather. Outages and interruptions in Service may occur, and speed of Service varies. Devices also have varying speed capabilities and may connect to different networks depending on technology. Even within coverage areas and with broadband-capable devices, network changes, traffic volume, outages, technical limitations, signal strength, obstructions, weather, and other conditions may impact speeds and service availability. Coverage specific to GoSmart Mobile Prepaid Service may be found at www.gosmartmobile.com.
8. Emergency Alerts. T-Mobile has chosen to offer wireless emergency alerts, within portions of its coverage area, on wireless alert capable Devices. There is no additional charge for these wireless emergency alerts. For details, visit www.gosmartmobile.com.
9. * Billing. You agree to pay all Charges that were accepted or processed through your Device. You will not have access to detailed usage records or receive monthly bills. For disputed Charges, see Section 14. Usage. Airtime usage is measured from the time the network begins to process a call (before the phone rings or the call is answered) through its termination of the call (after you hang up). For voice calls, we round up any fraction of a minute to the next full minute. Depending upon your Rate Plan, data usage may be rounded at the end of each data session, at the end of your service cycle, and/or at the time you switch data plans. You may be charged for more than one call/message when you use certain features resulting in multiple inbound or outbound calls/messages (such as call forwarding, call waiting, voicemail, conference calling, and multi-party messaging). Usage and Charges incurred during a Service cycle will be deducted/included in that cycle. You will be charged for text, instant or picture messages, and email whether read or unread, sent or received, solicited or unsolicited. We use filters to block spam messages, but we do not guarantee that you will not receive spam or other unsolicited messages, and we are not liable for such messages. Additional blocking options are available at www.gosmartmobile.com. Unused Rate Plan Allotments expire at the end of the time period associated with your Rate Plan. You may incur additional Charges for certain features and services. Charges for Wi-Fi usage may differ; see your Rate Plan for more details. Third-Party Service Provider Charges. Your Device can be used to purchase services and products from third parties, and Charges for these purchases may be deducted from your GoSmart Mobile prepaid Services account balance. If you are able to deduct third party provider charges from your GoSmart Mobile prepaid Services account balance, you can block the purchase of third-party products or services by visiting www.gosmartmobile.com or calling us..
11.* Roaming and International Calling. Roaming. Your Device may only be used within the T-Mobile owned domestic network coverage area (and not off-network or roaming on affiliate networks). International Roaming & Dialing. Availability and features offered for international roaming and dialing vary depending on your Rate Plan and Device and may require an additional feature on your account. Whether roaming internationally or making and sending international calls and messages while in the U.S. (or Puerto Rico), you may be charged international rates (including for voicemails left for you and for data usage). This includes per minute rates for calls and per minute rates for calls transferred to your voicemail and the relevant data rates for data usage. You may be charged for more than one call for unanswered calls that are forwarded to voicemail regardless of whether the calls result in an actual voicemail message being left for you and regardless of whether your Device is on or off. Some Devices and applications may incur usage and Charges while roaming. You may be able to disable these applications and features through your Device settings. Different rates and rounding increments apply in different countries. See www.gosmartmobile.com for information on international access, rates, Services and coverage. While roaming internationally, your data throughput may be reduced and your Service may be otherwise limited or terminated at any time without notice. You are responsible for complying with U.S. Export Control laws and regulations, and the import laws and regulations of foreign countries when traveling internationally with your Device.
12. * Taxes, Fees, and Surcharges. Taxes and Fees. You agree to pay all taxes and fees imposed by governments or governmental entities. We may not give advance notice of changes to taxes & fees. To determine taxes & fees, we will use the street address you identified as your Place of Primary Use (“PPU”). The PPU for Puerto Rico customers must be in Puerto Rico. If you did not provide the correct PPU, or if you provided an address (such as a PO box) that is not a recognized street address, does not allow us to identify the applicable taxing jurisdiction(s), or does not reflect the Service area associated with your telephone number, you may be assigned a default location for tax purposes. In the event you dispute your PPU or the location we assigned you and the resulting taxes or fees applied to your Service, you must request a refund of the disputed tax or fee within 60 days of our notification to you that the tax or fee has been assessed. Regardless of any rate plan guarantee, taxes and fees may change from time to time without notice. Surcharges. You agree to pay all Surcharges. Surcharges are not mandated by law, they are our Charges that are determined, collected and retained by us. The components and amounts of these Charges are subject to change without notice. Surcharges include charges, costs, fees and certain taxes we incur to provide Services (and are not government taxes or fees imposed directly on our customers that we must collect by law). Examples include general and administrative fees (such as certain costs we incur to provide Service) as well as governmental-related Surcharges (such as Federal or State Universal Service fees, regulatory or public safety charges, and gross receipts taxes). Surcharges assessed to you may vary depending on the type of Service you have. Surcharges will apply whether or not you benefit from the programs, activities or services included in the Surcharge. Surcharges are included in the price of your selected Rate Plan or prepaid refill.
13. * Payments. Your GoSmart Mobile Service account balance, if sufficient, or your active Service plan gives you access to our Service for a limited amount of time; you must use your Service during the designated period of availability. To use GoSmart Mobile you must purchase Service in advance; Service will be suspended when your purchased Service is fully depleted; and/or you are at the end of the time period associated with your GoSmart Mobile Service plan. Monthly plan features are available for 30 days, however, depending on the time of day that you activate your Service or that your Service expires, your Service cycle may not equal 30 full 24 hour days. Your monthly plan will automatically renew at the end of 30 days if you have a sufficient GoSmart Mobile Service account balance to cover your GoSmart Mobile Service plan before the first day after your Service cycle. If you do not have a sufficient GoSmart Mobile Service account balance, your Service will be suspended. If you do not reinstate Service within the required period based upon your Service plan, your phone number will be reallocated. The Charges for Service and the amount of time that Service is available following activation of your GoSmart Mobile Service account balance may vary; see www.gosmartmobile.comfor more information.
