Qwest Communications TOLD IN NOVEMBER NO LONGER HOLD ME TO WIRELESS CONTRACT/PRICE JACK UP Seattle Washington
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: You counld have left without the charge but not with your numbers
I called Qwest and the person stated they were losing money and we had a "grandfathered" plan price & it was now regular price (I don't think so!) and that we would no longer be held to our contract if we decided to switch (I believe this was the migration dept). From what that person told me the end of December 2008 I had our 2 phone #'s ported to Sprint (don't let Qwest strong arm you into a Verizon contract).
A week later they put a 200.00 charge + taxes for each phone ($445 total) under an undetailed section & only by calling them they told me it was for porting the #'s out & breaking our contract. Now our bill is due around the 27th of each month...it was paid in full the end of December...they sent us a disconnect letter stating that if the $445 wasn't paid by January 22, 2009 our home & internet would be shut off also.
Fri Jan 16th I spoke to approx 8 different Qwest people throughout the day....none would credit the ridiculous charges...the last one actual said the person in November shouldn't have told me that (A little late now!). Files a complaint with the FTC, & MN Attorney Generals Office a coupld days ago. Would like to know any similar price jacks/situations.
