Ok, I considered my case solved.
I called Sprint PCS this morning asking them
why I got the notice saying I owned them $161.
They said this amount is the early termination fee because I cancelled
my account while I was in a contract.
The so-called contract came without me knowing it.
On July 5, 2007, I got a letter from Sprint
PCS telling me that I entered a 2-year contract. I called them immediately and
told them under no circumstances did I ask for any contract.
I would be stupid to ask for any
In the end, I was told I was
off the hook.
But when I called Sprint PCS on Dec. 21, 2007 to cancel my
account mainly because I do not use cell phone often and try to save a couple
Three reps dealt with me all
saying that I will have to pay an early termination fee for the contract.
I told them again there had been no contract
I had ever entered except for the first year contract, which was a thing four
years ago. After 30 minutes and three reps, I was told my account was canceled.
I got a collection alert yesterday Feb 12, 2008 saying I
owned Sprint PCS $161. Today I called them and they told me that is the early
I told the rep I was
not in any contract.
She is kind enough
to correct this and let me pay $11.47 taxes or whatever. I asked her if there
will be any fee I need to pay after this $11.47. She answered "no" because
your account was closed.
I hope my account was indeed closed forever.
All this wasted me lots of time and caused
lots of stress in me.
