But by not having this app take up minutes simply because they own them is discriminating on bandwidth and going against net neutrality. Next thing you know they will purchase 10 other apps and they will be the only apps you can use with tmobile at all beacuse non t-mobile apps will use ur bandwidth and cost you extra.
