How can they do this to me???

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.cingular (More info?)

They send me a whopping bill and I call them to ask about the charges. They
say don't worry, we will investigate because right now we don't know. We
will call you.

No call. Service cancellation.

Is this right?

    Depends, how long did you wait for the call and did you note the name and
    CSR# of the rep that told you this?

    I waited 10 days. Also, I did not note the name and do not know what a CSR#
    is and was never offered one. You can bet I will ask for both next time.
    When you talk to them, they only really offer first names anyway. I did ask
    for a work order number or investigation number or a "trouble" number, but
    they all told me there was no such thing, to just expect a call from a
    manager.

    Let me guess... Didn't pay attention to your usage of minutes and got a big
    bill? Didn't pay that big bill? And now you're angry that Cingular didn't
    let you get away with that? ;)

    I never had a problem, from the woman who sold me the phone to the
    tech people. I actually found cingular to be nicer than other techs...

    "Remaining on your bill". Well, that says it all. They are a business,
    they make money by collecting YOUR debts. Why are you so special that
    you don't have to pay "every last penny" which is owed to them?
    Credit ratings - they don't 'trash' it, they just deduct points for
    OUTSTANDING bills. This is used to make future business propositions
    aware that you don't like paying your bills.

    Most stores have cameras nowadays, why shouldn't they be allowed to?
    After all, they own the store.


    >Remember, Cingular considers you the customer as
    >"THE ENEMY".

    Paranoid? Source? Enemy is a strong word. If you were actually
    considered an "enemy", they wouldn't have sold you a phone/contract,
    now would they?
