T-Mobile can remove "email" text messaging where someone would send a
message to (where your phone is (310) 555-2368
..) They cannot however cancel text messaging phone to phone e.g.
someone sends a text message (SMS) to +13115552368. Text messaging is
also used to deliver an alert to your phone if someone has left a
message in your voicemail box. So, yes they can remove email text
messaging to your phone. They cannot and will not remove phone to
phone text messaging from your account.
