    I have been receiving automated calls from sprint. At first they said to
    press 1 to hear in English or press 2 to hear in Spanish. Later they
    started asking for a person that I have no knowledge of, then it changed to
    we have an important message for you. The latest is voicemail messages. I
    need this phone to communicate with my wife for the next 2 months, then it
    is goodbye sprint. I have talked to sprint "specialists" and e-mailed
    customer services. It has been a big waste of time. Anyone else getting
    calls from sprint like this?

    You're leaving a *big* chunk of information out.

    What are they calling in regard to?

    These are automated calls and do not say what it is all about. It is
    however coming from their financial services and my account balance is zero.

    I have never forgotten to pay my bill. In two more months, I will no longer
    be with sprint. It's as if they are being managed by the Keystone Kops.

    Are you *absolutely* sure that the calls are coming from Sprint?

    Any chance you're being scammed?

    Re: harassment by sprint

    I have quit answering the calls and this morning I dialed the missed call
    number and got sprint, but got tired of waiting to talk to a human. Besides
    with all the calls I have been getting, I would prefer to be face to face
    with someone there with some authority. Guess the best thing for me to do
    is drop sprint. I just have to wait because we are in the process of moving
    and need to communicate.

    Perhaps your time and effort would be better spent by calling back and
    waiting to speak to a rep, rather than wasting our time by asking us to
    guess what it is that Sprint wants with you.

    If it's coming from Financial Services, there's no harm in calling
    yourself - not answering the call, mind you, but calling *them* and
    talking to that department to ensure that you aren't talking to some
    scammer. I would suggest doing this. Have you done it yet?

    In my first post, I said that I had talked to their "specialists to no
    avail. This is my last post.

    Re: harassment by sprint

    What cell phone service are you going to switch to? Be careful not to jump
    from the frying pan into the fire. Sprint is by far the best.

    Depends on where you use the phone.

    Would the calls be coming from 866-463-3020 perhaps? Google will bring up
    info on that one, plus it's been mentioned in this NG a few times. I was
    war dialed from that number off and on for a couple of months. I didn't
    feel like dealing with it, so I put the number in my contact list and set
    the ringer to "none." General customer service at Sprint (*2) won't know
    anything about it. I never called the number back or answered it to find
    out more. I just felt like I would spew too much profanity so I hid my
    head in the sand instead.

    Re: harassment by sprint calls

    same here -
    -
    If this is a valid marketing call from Sprint, wonder about the results ?
    Are they actually getting more revenue vs pissing their own customers

    BTW - my wife got called TWICE today while she was in a meeting.
    She thought it might be "important", else why would Sprint be calling her !

    I'll have to check the number stored, and see what it looks like.
