Signed up 30 months ago and got my modem/router at a kiosk in the local mall. Was told I was purchasing the modem/router and would be billed monthly service charge for use only. 30 months later I find out I have been billed $ 7.00 a month for the modem for 30 months. I have spent $ 210.00 in rental fees for a modem with a purchase price of $49.99
This all came about when I heard about Freedom Pop and was trying to decide which was a better deal. I am paying 54.00 a month for 4g service. With Freedom Pop first month is free then premium plan is 19.99.
So I chat the Clear rep initially trying to decide if they had a lower plan to stay with them. The wimax signal has worked well so I was looking to stay on board. Until I found out I have been paying a rental fee on top of a purchase of the modem.. Easy fix you would think? Nope. [continued below]....
The rep tells me well its like paying rent on an apartment??? Say what... Of course the online statements only went back a year. Now to spend a couple of hours trying to find my original receipt then more time looking into whether this is even legal.
