Back in 2000 a Sprint PCS representative came to my job offering specials on their services for the employees there. I went in and looked through all the phones they were offering and the package deals they had. They kept trying to sell me a Nokia flip phone which I told them I didn't want a flip phone just a regular one. Then I picked out my package which included 1500 minutes a month. About a week later our phones arrived and when I opened the box it was the flip phone I didn't want. I didn't feel like going through the hassle of having to trade it out so I accepted what I got. I went to a payphone and called the toll free number and had the service activated. I used the phone to call a few people totaling maybe 40 minutes air time and 2 days later my phone is turned off. I called sprint and asked them what was going on and they said I went over my credit limit of $150 and that my bill at the time was around $450. I asked her how that was since I just had the phone for 2 days and only used 40 minutes of the 1500 on my plan. All her response was was that my bill reached over my limit and that I had to pay that to get my services back. Well I told her I wanted to cancel my services and that I had 30 days to cancel the contract without it being breeched. So she gave me an address where I can send the equipment to and I did certified so I can run a trace on it so I know they got it back. I paid for the first month in advance at my job when they came out so I didn't feel after 2 days of service that I owed them anything, if anything they owed me for the month minus 2 days. Now I get collection agencies calling me all the time to pay that bill and I refused. I change my phone number and they still find me. I even moved 1800 miles away and they still find me. I have explained to the agencies what was going on and how I don't owe them anything since I didn't get the service as promised and that they got their phone back. They say I have to talk to Sprint about it which I have done and that I have to pay them and get my money back from Sprint which I wasn't about to do. If Sprint can't credit my account whats the guarantee they will return my money to me after paying off the agency. So now I have a bill on my credit report from sprint for over $500 for 2 days services, a phone i didn't ask for and nothing to show for it.
