How to cancel a T-Mobile cellular account

Atticus' Legacy Review of T-Mobile's closing account process after someone dies = 4/10 stars
T-Mobile gets less than stellar marks in Atticus' Legacy Review of their closing accounts process, mainly because of how little they've thought about this process. Whether they have put time in or not, they certainly haven't created any web resources for the subject. We're also pretty sure that any documentation you give them may have to be done so in person. If other companies can figure that out, so too can T-Mobile. Hopefully, after receiving this less than perfect mark they'll write one for their clients.
