Phone companies, both cell and hardwired, are some of the biggest crooks in commercial business.

Look at the Def of Off peak and then look at the detail of your bill (they should list the time of call and where plus duration) then you can dispute the bill (add up all the off peak times, look at your contract etc).

I did that 3 times with AT&T and those ****ers say oh yes sir we see it at our PC you are right....and then next month they send me the same bill but now saying that I am delinquent by 30 days...it's been 4 months and I've called them 3 times, each time they said that they will fix it and that it's been noted in my account but nothing has changed....during my last convo I've told the guy..."this conversation between us will be recorded for my own educational purposes" he agreed, so we went over the bill all over again and again he said that I am right...now if next month they send me the same bill with the extra charges or if they send the bill to the collection agency, I have the tape with out conversatino to prove that I do not own the money.

BOY AT&T CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS MONKEY BALLS< THEY SAY ONE THING BUT THEY FIX NOTHING, YOU CALL THEM< THEY SAY THAT THEY FIXED IT, YOU WAIT A FEW DAYS AND REALIZE THAT NOTHING HAVE BEEN FIXED

ARGHHH

Verizon is worse. The rest are all evil too. Cricket is the only good one i have found thus far. Thats because your bill is a constant. It will NEVER be higher then a fixed rate on any given month, infinite minutes, and 1000 long distance minutes, free mobile web, free text messaging. Therefore its impossible to go over your minutes (since they are infinite local, and 1000 ld).

You just have to ring them up and b!tch to them for a while; all phone companies are nazis and will always try to steal your money. At least you odn't have to deal with telstra, they suck major balls.

I'm always going to have hate for cell companies becuase their service generally sucks, they try to give you all these lame ass charges, and then they bill you for calls you never made.

Oh, in one of my Physics problems tonight *it's like 5 AM* it seems like cell phones do put out more radiation than what's recomended.

I was always very anti-cell phone...then an emergency came up and no one could get ahold of me. It was then that I decided I needed one. I do think they're a ripoff and for what they charge, they could at least make their networks better. I went with verizon cause it seemed to have the most coverage.

Good call. I have a company cell phone with Nextel, and it is nothing but a freakin' leash.

Hah, n00bs.
I let people call me instead.

Cellphone all the way. No hardwired crap. Plus cashcard subscription so I don't have to pay anything beyond talking time. I'm paying at most $5 / month for my phone.

Same thing here. Family emergency promted me to go back to a cell phone after getting rid of one. The plan I have now is $50/month unlimited calls/long distance. Got rid of the land line and that saves me about $30/month. So I look at it as costing me $20/month more than I use to pay and getting free long distance and a cell phone.
