Consumer Complaint: I bought a phone contract with XXXX online, where I was told My service would include ” international calling ” specifically, calls to the XXXX where my wife resides. I ask the agent specifically about this. I went to the local XXXX store and activated the phone I had received. A few days later my service was discontinued. I contacted the local store and they said I had to return the phone, because my credit was not good enough for the contract they had sold me online. I returned the phone and was refunded my payment. Then they sent me a bill two months later saying I owed them {$430.00} for the few days I had used the phone and for long distance calls.
I contacted XXXX and explained how their agent expressly told me calls to the XXXX were ” covered ” under my plan. However, after review they said my ” international ” coverage was only for XXXX and XXXX. After my refusal to pay this ridicules amount they have turned the ” debt ” over to a collection agency and even lied saying I had already made a payment, which I had ( my original payment online ) but that amount was refunded to me. They are the ones who terminated our contract without notice and I will not pay them because of their breach and lies about coverage.
