T-Mobile faced lots of criticism for their Binge On feature. The main concern its users had over the feature was that it was automatically activated on their device, whether they want it or not. And once they switch off the feature, there was no way for them to re-enable it on their own.
T-Mobile seems to have listened to the concerns of their users. Along with adding four more services to Binge On's free streaming portion, they have also rolled out faster ways Binge On can be enabled AND disabled by customers.
Earlier this month, T-Mobile released short codes to enable and disable Binge On for testing on devices. They seemed to be a success that T-Mobile has announced their official availability for all their users. Here are the short codes you need to remember:
- Check Binge On status: Dial #BNG# (#264#)
- Disable Binge On: Dial #BOF# (#263#)
- Enable Binge On: Dial #BON# (#266#)
With these options, T-Mobile makes it a lot easier to manage Binge On from a device. Users won't have to go through the step-by-step guide anymore.
