Consumer Complaint: I switched cell phone companies from XXXX XXXX XXXX to XXXX.
XXXX told me that if I switch they would pay off what ever I owe to XXXX XXXX XXXX.
This agreement was not fulfilled on sprints half. I switched carriers and they did nothing.
I have not received any notifications from XXXX XXXX XXXX stating that this wasnt paid and they didnt tell me that this was going against my credit.
Now I have a derogatory mark on my credit profile because of this problem.
