    3 months ago moved to Sprint from Verizon.

    Sales girl told me I'd get all the bells and whistles free for the
    first 2 months, sounded great to me.

    What she failed to say was that after the 2 months, Sprint
    automatically assumes you want "the horse and the barn".

    So nearly **** myself when month 3 bill arrived for over $100. There
    was crazy stuff like
    $15 for photo plan
    $5 for text message plan
    $5 for emergency hazard (what the hell??)

    Called them up and was only able to get $10 removed from the bill. Guy
    said since I had used photos and text msgs, he couldn't credit that
    part.

    What a load of crap.

    And to think I was really liking Sprint as of late. Reminds me why I
    left back in 99.

    YOU didn't read the contract and do what YOU were supposed to do,
    so "Sprint scammed you."

    I laugh in your face.

    To quote a part of the Vision Plan trial offer, for example:

    "Nationwide network reaches over 240 million people. Offers subject to change.
    Terms and conditions apply. Two Months Free offer: Two month free offer requires
    activation on a Sprint PCS Consumer Service Plan (excluding starter plan) with
    the Sprint PCS Vision or Sprint PCS Ready Link options. If you do not wish to
    continue with the trial offer after the initial two months, you must contact us
    prior to the billing end date of your second invoice to avoid charges."

    DID YOU READ THE LAST LINE?

    Notan,

    Do you read the fine print of all your contracts from top to bottom? If
    so, I laugh in your face because what a pathetic little life you live.

    If the contract said "after 2 months, Sprint reserves the right to your
    first 2 born children, as well as half your assets for next 20 years",
    would you still laugh?

    We all know that no "normal" people read their contracts, and in good
    faith, we expect to be told the weird parts of any contracts.

    Now get back to reading your oven's owners manual from top to bottom.

    Notan was correct. What's more, it's not in fine print. It's fully outlined
    on the web site. It's you that are at fault, not SPCS. Lastly, you couldn't
    have made a worst analogy if you tried ...

    Great- yet another moron who believes that he is above the rules. If you're
    too stupid to read the contract, oh well.

    That's me... "Pathetic" and not "normal."

    And, between the two of us, the only one with no surprises on this month's
    Sprint bill!

    You mean it's "pathetic" to make sure you understand the contents of a
    legal document before you agree to it? Geez, I'd say it's the person who
    doesn't bother to do so who is the pathetic one.

    Apparently he believes that stupidity will get him out of the legal
    obligation HE agreed to. ;-)

    Rubbish. You ask, you learn. Except idiots never learn. Admit
    you're an idiot and move on.

    Wierd part? Every free offer I've *ever* had came with the=20
    condition that the payments started unless I called to=20
    cancel. I've never seen otherwise.

    Certainly. It /is/ a legal document. It would be utterly foolish to not
    read _every_single_line_.

    > If the contract said "after 2 months, Sprint reserves the right to
    > your first 2 born children, as well as half your assets for next 20

    No. I also wouldn't voluntarily sign such a contract.

    > We all know that no "normal" people read their contracts, and in good
    > faith, we expect to be told the weird parts of any contracts.


    Possibly. However, the days of "good faith" with major corporations
    seems to be over.

    It's your money. If you're not concerned with it, by all means don't
    read the contract. If it *is* a concern, then I would strongly advise
    you to read the contract in the future.

    Cheers!

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Hey, what the hell is wrong with you? The sales girl told you that it is
    free for the first 2 months. What sane person would not ask about what
    happens after? Even the wording clearly implies that there is a fee to
    pay, which you won't have to pay for the "first" two months of usage. I'm
    sorry to say this but, this is no one's fault but your own. Maybe
    sprintpcs should have *****ed it out implicitly but really the way it is
    put is pretty clear. Of course if it was not clear to you there is no
    shame in asking "and on the 3rd month?" or something of that nature.

    So uhh ... Did you at least learn a lesson or two ?

    1) Next time, know what your agreeing to
    2) When the free trial is ready to lapse, make sure to call up and cancel,
    and everything.

    What'd ya think they'd do after 2 months ?
    Mail you a batch of chocolate chip cookies ?

    You bet I read and understand every contract before I sigh it, even if
    I have to hire a lawyer to do it.
