    Seven out of 10 of us never do. We claim we don't know how, or don't think
    it will help or that companies won't care. Instead, most of us grouse to an
    average 10 friends or family members about our disappointment. According to
    the U.S. Office of Consumer Affairs, one out of every four-consumer
    transaction has a glitch. -- Bernice Kanner, ARE YOU NORMAL? (New York: St.

    Re: DO YOU COMPLAIN?

    Each carrier has the good parts along with their bad ones. The task is
    to find the one thats good parts fit you and the bad parts are obsolete.

    Each carrier is designed for a different customer base. None is right
    for everyone. Sprint is bad for people with bad credit, and those that
    don't use the phone much, but for people that use it a lot or like the
    internet and extremely technical part, sprint is one of, if not, the
    best at it doing this well and cheap.

    Here's the last thing I complained about. I reported my phone lost one =
    night and found it at a restaurant the next day. Verizon gave me a =
    credit for one day's service $1.13, without considering its overall =
    impact. Since my peak minutes were way over that month it turned out to =
    be a charge of $2.87, because they also reduced my allowance by ten =
    minutes at $.40! I complained and asked them to reverse the original =
    credit. They found it easier to give me the ten minutes I had lost than =
    to go back thru the system and reverse the credit.

    Here's what I believe should be done on prorations when they put someone =
    over the limit. Customers should be able to buy up to a full month of =
    prorated days at the affected rate to avoid the higher overlimit =
    charges. Many times prorations are beyond the control of the customer.

    Well, count me as one of the three. The tricks to effective
    complaining are:

    1. Pick your battles carefully. Some aren't worth fighting.
    2. Chose the recipient of your complaint carefully. No sense
    complaining to someone who is not in a position to do anything about
    it.
    3. Do your homework. Lay the problem out for them in a clear and
    concise manner so there is no (or little) possibility for them to
    misunderstand the problem.
    4. Keep a thorough record of your contacts with the company.
    5. Stay on top of the problem. If they say they will call me back
    within 3 days, and I haven't heard from them within 5 days, I call
    them back.
    6. Last, and most important, keep your cool. Foul language and
    threats only weaken your position.

    Sure do. And if they ever do anything about the problem, I will feel
    like I won the lottery! I give them the details, the research, all of
    that. But I have yet to see where they've actually acted on the
    problems.

    Re: DO YOU COMPLAIN?

    Actually I would tell you that you have never experienced the
    unadulterated JOY of being a SprintPCS user.

    BTW- if you want out of your contract, just call to reduce you plan to
    the lowest available rate, when they tell you you have to extend for a
    year explain that was NOT part of the contract you signed and that
    Cingular has changed the tems of your contract without notifing you of
    this. If you look on thier website you will see that gives you a
    penalty free cancallation (that is, no cancallation fee)

    So get a Sprint Phone and be less civil over on our message board.

    so you call cingular, change your plan to the lowest available rate
    (thus making cancellation of account charges not apply to you) then
    cancel your plan next month and pay nothing? i dont think cingular
    would let u do that, once they saw what u were doing they would still
    charge you and tell you to "take them to court" thats just
    cingular...have u used this loophole?

    LMAO is that why Mr. Vai has toured the world 5 times in 3 different
    platinum selling rock bands, and toured the world solo 4 times as a
    platinum selling virtuoso? perhaps if he composed songs using his cell
    phone composer tool you would understand, LMAO

    > so you call cingular, change your plan to the lowest available rate

    And then when the CC rep tells you that you have to extend, then you
    tell them that you did not have that clause in your contract (and if you
    signed before august 1st 2003, you don't). Then ask them if they have
    changed the terms of your contract (this is important), make them say
    yes (because they have, you cannot lower your rate plan at any time).
    Then tell the rep that you were never notified of the contract change
    and that according to the Cingular website, you have 14 days to think
    about the change and if you do not find that acceptable you may cancel
    IMMEDIATELY without penalty. What Cingular has done is... kinda, is
    called Breach of Contract Without Due Consideration (if I recall my
    business Law class correctly).
