What are the hours and when should I call?

T-Mobile operates the call center for this 800-866-2453 phone number Mon-Sun 3am-10pm PT. The short answer is that you should call on a Thursday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 21,721 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 Thursday. The most busy day to call is Friday. Again, this is based on a sample of 21,721 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Tuesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Thursday.

The best time to call

In summation, the best day to call T-Mobile is Thursday. This is not the day with the shortest wait on hold in the phone system, but we still recommend it for its ideal combination of low call volume and short hold times. Plus we believe that T-Mobile staffs the call center well on Thursday.

Calling this T-Mobile Customer Number

It's the holiday season, and that means that everyone is offering great deals to get the attention of consumers. I happen to be one of those consumers who loves a great deal, so I decided to talk to T-Mobile to see what they would give me if I let them buy me out of my AT&T plan. I have to admit that when you see the ads, it's very tempting to switch, but I know that usually there are things in the fine print you have to be aware of. Therefore, I figured I'd call and talk to an agent to figure out what would work best for me. 

That said, I knew I was probably in for a bit of a wait, and I wasn't wrong. While I was able to get to the hold line quickly, I ended up with some obnoxious hold music for a while. Granted, I'm sure a lot of people are probably looking to switch plans now because they are seeing the same great advertisements and are tempted by the deals. Plus, there are old customers who need help with their service or having issues with their billing. 

All of these are valid reasons that may explain why you get stuck, but it still doesn't help when you're listening to the same 20 seconds of a horrendous song. You would think that they would treat new customers just a little bit better to convince them to become a customer.

When I called, a voice assistant stated, "Welcome to T-Mobile, the uncarrier sales line." Then it ran through the standard privacy policy disclaimer about recorded lines before instructing me, "To become a new T-Mobile customer, say new. If you are a current T-Mobile customer, please say my account." I said new, and it told me that it would get me right over to someone who could help. It also mentioned again that the call would be recorded. 

I was sent to a wait-line with this poppy, techno song that was very staticky and seemed like it would belong better in the eighties. About every half a minute, the voice assistant would cut in to say please have your number available (which was odd since I already said I was a new customer) and then it would repeat the clip of the song again. This went on for about 15 minutes, and the song clip never changed. The agent eventually answered my questions, but it took forever to get there. If I do go with T-Mobile, it's nice to know to what to expect when it comes to customer service!
