They should be able to. I've had both Sprint and Verizon do it.

You should have your wife authorize you to deal with T-Mobile. She calls in and says "John Mayson is going to call you from time to time about my account; he's allowed to talk to you and to make changes." I have never dealt with T-Mobile, but this is based on my experience with dozens of other large companies with whom I do business. TM should be no different. It's an account security issue; you DO NOT want just anyone to be able to call in about your account. - Apple Valley, CA -
