I noticed that my mobile phone operator let people switch to them without having to pay a connection fee now around Christmas. Since I have been thinking about switching from the subscription I currently have with them to their “self service subscription” Easy, where you administrate everything via the Internet (which I do anyway with my current one) I wrote to them asking whether switching also was for free.
I got a reply stating that it wasn’t, the offer was only valid for new subscriptions. So I wrote asking if I then couldn’t just get a new subscription, with the free connection, and then port over my existing number to the new subscription and thus move over to the new subscription without a fee.
After a couple of hour, I received an answer:
We have now also introduced a drive covering free switching to Easy
until the end of the year.
1-0 for me...
