I got a collection call from a company that said I owed Tmobil $33.53 since January of this year. I told them they had the wrong number because I am still a Tmobil customer and my account is current. Besides that’s not the amount that I pay. I never received a notification through regular mail, email, text message, voice mail or any other means of communication. It was then that I called Tmobil to let them know that they had given out my information to collectors in error. Customer service tells me I do have an old debt of that amount from a closed account. After thinking about it I realized that what they were talking about was a hotspot that I had purchased in October of 2011 that was supposed to have been added to my regular account and for some reason I still don’t understand was not added but rather a separate account was created and I always had trouble with the bills. I finally decided I didn’t need the hotspot and I wanted to close the account. I was told that the balance was going to be moved to my regular account along with the penalty for not waiting the contracted number of months (which I just finished paying through my regular account).
When I asked why they had sent me to collections instead of calling or writing to me and would have immediately paid the outstanding amount. I also asked why this amount was not transfered with the penalty to my regular account, the young woman (girl) at the other end told me that Tmobil just doesn’t do that. That they had sent me statements many times and that since I was in collections Tmobil could not speak with me any more that I had to go through the collection company. I requested to speak to a manager and she wouldn’t let me. When I insisted she said that the manager didn’t want to speak with me because I had to call the collection company. I told her that if she didn’t let me speak to a manager I would go to another phone company and she said there was nothing she could do.
I just got the second call from the collection company, I paid the $33.52. I’m getting ready to pay off whatever I owe you people and I’m switching to another cell phone carrier as soon as I find a decent deal. In the meantime I will tell everyone and in any way how Tmobil completely blew me away and didn’t care about losing a customer. This is the second time I leave Tmobil. The first time it was because I was not getting a signal at work and at the time I had a sick mother at home and a daughter who was a freshman in college away from home and I needed them both to have access to me. After 6 months of working with Tmobil to find out why I had no signal in that building when everyone else was ok, I had to leave because I was told that nothing could be done. I had to pay the penalty then and I guess I’ll pay it now also but believe me, Tmobil will NEVER have me as a customer again, no matter what.
