g On the basis of different rulings on the expiry of prepaid credit and the limited validity
of prepaid cards, T-Mobile Deutschland changed its terms of contract and thus also its
deactivation policy in the first quarter of 2007 in favor of its prepay customers. These
customers can now use their prepaid credit longer than before. As a result of the change
in the terms of contract, prepaid contracts no longer end automatically, but run for an
unlimited duration and can be terminated by the customer at any time and by T-Mobile
with one month’s notice. T-Mobile Deutschland reserves the right to make use of this right
of termination and to deactivate cards in the systems.
