    I received a text message from Sprint on Nov 6th informing me that Sprint's
    billing system was being upgraded through the 8th and changes couldn't be
    made to my account. I went to sprint.com on the 10th and found I needed to
    update my user name and password. Today I want to pay my bill and find that
    I can't see or pay online. I did a Google and found no reference to any
    similar problems with Sprint's new Web site. I tried turning off the McAfee
    firewall and using another computer with a different operating system but
    still when I click the <Pay Now> button, I see "This feature is temporarily
    unavailable. Please try again later." I was able to pay with *3 but would
    like to see a bill.

    Am I the only one seeing this problem? ... Dean

    I see it also. In my opinion, forcing customers to choose a new password
    could present a hardship. It's arguable, but it may be reason to end a
    contract without an etf.

    LOL, Paul, are you kidding ? Since when do the posters here need any
    grounds other than the ones that suit their personal agendas ?

    Denying a customer the access to his/her account as promised in the
    contract.

    Except that what they are doing is in direct response to an FCC directive.
    Not a company policy- your government at work.

    The FCC order SPrint to force a password change?

    Yep- as part of a security crackdown ordered for all telcommunications
    companies. The 118 page decision is available on the FCC website and gives
    very detailed information of the changes required. It even has the
    arguments made by the telcos outlining the huge inconvenience this would
    cause for users.

    Very interesting. I had a feeling something was up when my Internet,
    wireless and land line provider all changed the way I sign on. Logging on
    to each Web site is now a bit more difficult but not as irritating as going
    through TSA to get on an airplane. So how can Comcast and Embarq have
    updated their security without the problems Sprint is having? ... Dean
