What are the hours and when should I call?

T-Mobile operates the call center for this 800-672-5390 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 75 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this T-Mobile phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like T-Mobile staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call T-Mobile is Friday. The most busy day to call is Tuesday, which averages 267% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 75 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

Calling this T-Mobile Customer Number

Calling T-Mobile was a breeze. It was possibly one of the easiest phone calls I have ever had to make, which is ironic because before calling I was super frustrated. I have been dealing with my Wi-Fi not working correctly for some time and I have tried to fix it at least ten times. I have talked to someone on the T-Mobile app and read the forum suggestions on the website. It doesn't seem to matter how often I restart the tablet or change my phone settings; it won't work right. 

I finally ended up calling because I am flying through my data at times when I should be on Wi-Fi. The problem is when I connect to the Wi-Fi, everything moves super slow, and I can't browse the internet that way. I usually turn off the Wi-Fi and just use my streaming data, but that gets me in trouble as well. So it's like a no-win situation, and I always lose. I knew that it was time to get help. 

However, I didn't have high expectations because phone companies are notorious for their long wait lines. Prior to T-Mobile, I had AT&T, and I could have written a book while waiting to talk to them. T-Mobile has almost as many customers and products, so I figured I would end up on hold for a while here as well. 

When I called this number, I was greeted by a voice assistant who said, "Welcome to T-Mobile, the Uncarrier Sales Lines. As part of this call, T-Mobile may collect information about you to provide the best service possible. To become a new T-Mobile customer, say new. If you are a current T-Mobile customer, please say my account."

I'm not sure what happened, but I didn't get a chance to say anything before it caught background noise or something and moved on to the next step. The voice assistant then said something along the lines of, "You’ve reached T-Mobile; we are currently experiencing longer wait times than normal. We are sorry. You can use text or customer support within your app to get answers. How can I help?” It talked pretty fast, and I was confused since it jumped a few steps. 

However, this seemed to work in my favor because despite the message that they were very busy, once I answered, "Talk about my Wi-FI." I almost immediately got to someone. The phone didn't even ring, and I didn't even have to listen to music. Someone named Chen answered with a friendly greeting, and I had only been on the phone for about a minute at that point. This was one of the quickest phone calls I have ever been on.
