Learn about adjustments and refunds. You can request a refund for the deposit you paid at activation, as well as any credit balance or overpayment that may be made to your T-Mobile account.
We refund deposits on final credit balances upon request, unless otherwise required by law. Interest is applied on deposits at the rate the law requires.
You may request a return of your deposit if you meet the following criteria:
It usually takes 2-3 days via electronic refund (preferred method due to time/cost) or 6-10 days via prepaid card once you have filed a request for the remaining credit balance to be refunded. If you have a balance, the deposit may be applied to any amount you owe on your account.

What to expect when you're issued a credit or adjustment on your bill:
If you receive notice that your refund request was declined, we want to help you better understand why this may have happened.
Here are reasons why your account might not be eligible for a refund:
TMO Free Msg: You requested a refund of $xxx.xx. However, your account is not eligible for a refund.
Your account isn't eligible for a refund due to a payment on your T-Mobile account being returned unpaid. Because the returned payment may have been the payment you requested to have refunded, we no longer have the funds to process the refund. If another payment was returned, your refund may have been declined as the returned payment reduced your credit balance; refunding the additional payment would cause your account to become past due.
Please check the status of your recent T-Mobile payments with your financial institution.
If you don't believe your account fits any of these situations or you need further support, contact T-Mobile Customer Service.
