Dirty,

First call spring to put your accoutn on hold and tell you have lost your phone or it has been stolen and are trying to find it. After a couple of days call sprint again and tell them that i would like to close my account. they will ask you the reason for that. tell them that you lost your cell phone or it was stolen and that you do not want to put any more money in buying a new cell phone.

they will probably ask you that if you were to get a new phone would you continue the service. tell them yes. And most probably they will offer you a similar phone as yorus fro free.

This happened with me. And I got a new phone for free.

Not if you have signed the 1 year agreement SG. They wil simply say ok then you will have to pay 175$ (or what ever that is in the agreement..) and explain you that there are load of cheap cellphones available at their site..

Kyaa yaar dirty.. ghumaanaa hi thaa to 6 mahine pahle ghumaataa. Mai ne mere cell phone ek friend ko de diyaa when I switched to Verizon..

I never sign these 1 year contracts.. its like giving them your balls in a gold platter.. bastards squeeze you out at the wrong time..

you are right, Ravi.

I did not have the contract either. Just like you, I do not bind myself with those hopeless contracts.

Secrets of overbilling.

Many times the telcom folks will overbill you (just a couple of dollars so you wont notice) and refund that later or adjust it in your next invoice. Or they will settle the disputed amounts (remove it from your balance).

But the timing is very very intersting. They will never do it the month they have to state their earnings.. All these extra charges/over charges will show up in their financials pushing their stocks up.

And when the market is not looking (non audit months) they will silently give you your money back or take it off their account recv'able.. Sort of taking your cash and inflating their books.

Old tricks hai ye.. Chori ek haath se nahi dono haath aur dono pairon se karte hain..
