    Received a text from VM today about changes to the terms of service beginning 8/1/13. Text said to go to the website to read. Went to site and couldn't find anything about the changes. Anyone know what this is about? :thinking:

    Did they include a link in the text, as they often do? If so, can you post it?

    We may change any part of the Agreement at any time, including, but not limited to, rates, charges, how we calculate charges, discounts, coverage, technologies used to provide services, or your terms of Service.

    Anyone know the URL of the old agreement?

    I saw something about Roaming. It said roaming may be within or outside of our network. Not sure if thats hinting anything.

    The T&C's have included a roaming section for the last couple of years, if not longer. I wouldn't read anything into it.

    I assume that they include that info to cover their back sides in situations where a network error allows a person's phone to roam onto another provider's network. It's not supposed to happen and usually doesn't, but if it does, the T&C's are in place.

    it also says that modifying the device, such as rooting, is not allowed. I dont, but they dont want you removing their apps. I just disable them/bloatware.

    I wouldn't worry about that. Carriers and manufacturers can't penalize users for rooting, ROMing since it is officially legal.

    Their own terms & conditions can be more restrictive than the law; in fact that's the entire nature of having their own terms & conditions. That said, they'd be hurting themselves if they did enforce that strictly, so they won't.
