    Simple question : ) If you go over your spending limit, is your
    deposit lost or deducted from? If not, is this considered a violation
    and does it delay your "good customer" deposit return?

    Thanks

    I didnt pay a deposit but was told that if I go over my limit the phone service is shutoff until payment is made. My wife did pay a deposit and she was told the samething, go over and service is interupted until payment is made.

    No and (i'm pretty sure) yes. Your deposit is only forfeited if you don't
    pay your bill and get shut off for good. After 1 year, you get it back.

    I believe they base it on how often your phone has been 'hotlined' or has
    gone over the limit and been shut off.

    No. The service is cut off until you pay enough to go under your
    spending limit. The deposit is generally claimed as liquidated damages,
    only after you've defaulted for a couple months and Sprint decides to
    close the account for good.

    That said... normally, as long as you pay your bill on time, you
    shouldn't go over the spending limit. And if you DO go over the
    spending limit, the best practice is to pay the FULL balance, until your
    account is at zero... NOT just enough to get you under the limit.

    The problem a lot of people have with ASL accounts revolves around the
    fact that they treat it like they would a credit card: just pay the
    minimum balance, and you'll get by. But this isn't a revolving charge
    account... it's a phone bill. And as long as you hold a balance without
    paying it off on time, Sprint will continue to keep your deposit and
    will continue to reign you in with a spending limit... which means
    service cut-offs every time you go over that limit.

    Yes it does. In fact, if you don't pay off the balance every month,
    they will probably continue to hold your deposit because you constantly
    have an overdue balance, EVEN if you don't go over the limit. A
    customer in good standing is one who pays the whole thing off every month.
