    This same thing happened to me! I had purchased time in advance of my shut off date because I was going to be on vacation in Chicago. When my shut off date rolled around, I fully expected to have phone service. It took me an hour of screwing around trying to get the option on their automated system that would let me speak to customer service. I was amazed when I got a person who spoke relatively clear English (this never happens) who told me that he was "so sorry, " and that I could "purchase a refill card" if I would like. When I told him (again) that I have, indeed, already purchased a refill card and that I do, indeed, have the confirmation from it, he claimed that it was for the month previous. I was wild. There were threats of legal action and reporting to the BBB and magically, he finally "saw" my purchased card. Luckily, when I called the all powerful *22890, the phone worked. All this for something that should've happened automatically. Such BS.
