Here my story about my mom's Spint cell phone. She has her phone for years. He service contract is most basic one and has no any data or internet service included. She is 79 years old and have no idea how to text or brouse. Her phone is not a smart phone and has very limited data abilities - simpliest one, offered by Sprint.
Recently s**+ received a bill on which appeared a charge $75 for 2558 KB of data service. I spent hour on phone with their customer service - but respond was that charge is valid, she is responsible for any data transfer of outgoing (which is impossible for my mom) or incoming (even from uncnown spammer) data.
Pricing was ridiculosly high - 20C for text message and 3C per 1KB of data.
In addition they did not tell me where tthis data came from and whot kind of data it is. Only information was given to me which dates and how much. Seems to be it was a few 30-60 KB messages ( probably text) and one 2430KB transfer
(Maybe pics? or internet?) I checked messages and internet log on her phone - nothing over there shoving such activity.
Still Sprint representative insisted that telephone memory is not prove and my mom probably accidentaly press button for Internet.
Finally the 've made a "settlment" - took off $30.00 wch mean that mom mom still ripped of $45 for nothing.
After my request they they disabled digital service for her account.
So Sprint did:
1. Sold telephone with data service available, did not warned about it, and did not offered to disable it.
2. Charged my mom, ridiculucly high, for activities that she never did.
3. Their custoimer service did not do anything to fix situation right way.
So be avare about Sprint data rip-off.
