So my family and I have been with t-mobile for a very long time. Their company was the one we started off with and have never switched. Over the last 3 years we have been having quite a bit of trouble with everything about t-mobile. Also I have had to replace my cell phone 9 times all within 6 to 9 months of eachother. I started with a small old flip phone with a white faceplate and the screen stopped working, then i went to a slider phone and the screen also stopped working, and every other phone I had since then has had the exact same problems. Every single time the screen ends up shutting completely off and then I have to go and replace it. I cant even begin to think of how much money I have spent going to pawn shops and buying off other people because, when I would go to a store I would get no help and end up walking away worked up and annoyed. The customer service in the 3 different stores I have been to has been equally dissapointing and unhelpful. So a word to the wise, do not get t-mobile for your service provider. You will end up being dissappointed, angry, and phoneless within 6 months of your signing up for it.
There is no way to verfiy customer identity without a pin you created at the creation of the account, a year or more for me. My problem is my account is locked and they will be text my PIN to me, but my phone is locked and until I can tell them what my PIN is they won't unlock my phone. Catch 22. My bank, doctor and lawyer don't have this kind of security. I understand the policy, but this is rediculous! So now my phone is usless, thanks T-Mobile.
In February I tried to use my pre-paid cell and got the message that no minutes were remaining. I used my c. card to add $100 of minutes. However, I never
used any of those (as I use a different phone 99% of the times).
In late March, I did try to use the phone to hear that, once again, no minutes were left. I checked my c.c. statement and found that $100 went to Vesta T-Mobile
After a horrible phone experience with T-Mobile reps, I finally wrote an actual letter to them asking for an explanation to where those February minutes went and credit for them. No response and it's been two weeks.
This certainly seems fraudulent. Ideas?
Sir I received mail from tm-awards informing that I have received award of GBP600, 000 in the 2010 T-mobile nokia draws in UK and to claim mail at [protected]@live.com
Accordingly which I did, later I received mail from mr.glen brown asking me to fill the form sent with his mail in which I filled my details and mailed him back he had also written in his mail that I should keep my winning confidential to avoid double claim which might lead to disqualification.
On march 20 mr.glen mailed that the royal court has approved my winning cheque and his deligate mr.philip gary E-MAIL: [protected]@yahoo.com will departure London on [protected] and arrive Mumbai on [protected] with the cheque. On [protected] I received a call from no.[protected] of mr.philip gary informing that he will be leaving tomorrow from uk with my cheque. His personal call made me felt that all this is really true but when I came across the site complaintsboard.com I realize that it could be fake.
Later on Monday 22-3-10 I received call from Philip gary from no.[protected] he said that he has arrived delhi and needs INR35000 for clearing airport charges for my cheque in the city.
This made my doubt clear that this is fraud. He sent an sms SURAJ ENTERPRISES A/C NO.[protected] OF ICICI BANK AND PAN NO.BLOPK2922F in which he told me to deposit the sum in this account. I told on my behalf you make the clearance and as he reaches Mumbai I will pay back the amount after which he never called me.
I m uploading this mail so that other people do not believe such fraud people and stay alert before loosing their hard earned money
No.[protected] london called on 20-3-10

My payment is due the 10th ea mo. I made an online payment on the 9th of June. 06/11 service disoconnected. I called MetroPCS, customer service told me to call their 3rd party payment proc. co, "Bill Matrix" to confirm pymt was rec'd. I called, they confirmed pymnt was rec'd. I called Metro PCS back with the confirmation #. They told me it would take up to 2 hrs for them to check their computer data base. Service never resumed. I called, they now turned my service back on but only for 2 days while they investigate (again, they say they will investigate further). I gave the Metro PCS customer service rep. the trace # and the reference # my bank shows to confirm they debited my bank account. 2 days later, I get a text msg. saying the case is closed and that I need to pay another month's bill to resume my service. Metro PCS claims they have 24/7 Customer Service. I attempted to call Customer Service after hours, the automated system says it cannot transfer to me to a live operator at this time.
I called a tmobile representative to see if I had any upgrades on my account and was told I had some. I then proceeded to have him tell me the different types of phones to choose from and the prices. I ended up choosing 2 and he gave me a total of$126.88. I asked him twice to repeat it and he told me the same price each time. I ordered them and it was done. Then, fast forward a month and I get the bill and it has an extra $32.49 on it for"other expense". It also said it was an installment of 3. I called them and they said "Oh no, this is what you owe on the phone. We only billed you for part of the phone. Then I pointed out that the total was already on my bill and there even was an extra $32.49 added on for no reason. The manager proceeded to tell me that the one phone I ordered was $129.99. I said no, the representative told me it would be $79.99 with the upgrade. This is absolutely ridiculous!!! I asked her if they could find the taped conversation of the representative and me when I ordered the phone and she said no. I told her this is insane, the representative gave me a total of $126.88. Where else would that come from????How would he come up with a figure like that?????? I was totally given the wrong total and ended up purchasing the phone thinking it was that price. I WOULD NOT HAVE PURCHASED THE PHONE IF IT WAS $129.99!!! The total they have comes to $100.00 more than I was told. I am furious!
"senior citizens/Retired customers who receive social security benefits"
It has never been considered by the executives of T mobile, that you have retired customers who are on fixed income (paid monthly). Some
people receive their benefits on the first, third or the fifth of the month. Then you have the people who receive benefits on the first, second, third or fourth Wednesdays of the month.
The problem is as follows: Customers who receive their benefits on the fourth Wednesday of the month may exceed the deadline and the service is cut off. For example: The fourth Wednesday may come between the 21st and the 30th of the month. If the payment due date
is the 14th day of the month. Now you have retired customers who
have no service until his or her check arrive.
I strongly encourage you to consider a "grace payment period" for retirees/seniors ONLY. IF SAID CUSTOMERS CAN SUPPLY YOU WITH PROOF THAT THEY ARE RECEVING SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS, THEY SHOULD BE GIVEN A GRACE PERIOD. IF THE BILL IS NOT PAID IN FULL AT END OF GRACE PERIOD INTERRUPT THE SERVICE.
I cannot believe T-mobile. When I moved and couldn't get service in my home, several tech support people told me they would do everything they could to fix the problem, and if not, they would let me out of my contract. After 6 weeks of switching phones, sim cards, cell towers and $$$ they couldn't fix it, so when I finally decided to switch carriers, they peg me with a final bill for almost $500!!! Including the cancellation fee and overage minutes they promised to remove. They lie! Now I can't even see my bill because they won't send me a paper bill and I no longer have access to my account online! T-MOBILE IS CRIMINAL AND NO ONE SHOULD USE THIS SERVICE. BUYER BEWARE!!!
I have a problem that is bringing mt credit report down A bill from TMobile is on my Transunion credit report and I am writing this because I have credit fraud on my acct and a well establish communication relationship with NYS Atty. general's Office and was informed to asked you all prove to me that my social security number is on that acct. which I know it is not I have never had TMobile cell phone service nor have I ever lived on Hertel Ave. in Buffalo New York BUT I can tell you my son who has misused me and my credit HIs name is Patrick j felder whose D.O.B. is 7/18/1985 and lives in Tampa Florida I have asked the previous company to follow up with the info.

I am a student and i thought this would be the best phone company to join since a they say- no contract and i would be here for just one year...I have had problems with this service since i bought this phone in December. I called and called their customer service and no one was able to assist me. I even went to their went customer service shop three times where they did not do anything about it. i kept on calling and they would tell me maybe its the other network, but the funny thing is i have a friend with the same kind of phone, who had the same kind of service and we come from the same place, and she didnt have any problem whatsoever. Finally i went back to the place where i bought the phone, the dealer called the company using their dealer line, and CAN YOU BELIEVE THE PROBLEM WAS SORTED! But sadly one month later i realised it was not working again, so i started calling their customer service line, basically i am back to square one.I feel like no one is willing to assist me, i even told them to take away the service, and no one even bothered to ask me why.
I was told that I would receive 13% off my entire bill if I had proof that I was a AAA member. After signing up for this discount. A few days later my bill had split its cycle and I was being charged an extra 200.00 for a billing period in order for my bill to be printed out on the same days that the AAA members billing cycle is printed.
I asked them to change it back and i was told that the fees would only go up higher if I switched it back. The real SHOCK came in when i found out that my discount was only for the taxes on the data packages which was only $5.00 This is a royal flush scam and i am sure that AAA would not have anything to do with this scam!
Please don't fall for it. T-Mobile is misrepresenting that AAA discount to sell the discount plan. You will only end up paying more money in the end. The discount is not on your entire bill!
T-Mobile is by far the worst I have ever seen. The customer service is horrible. The website is only helpful if you want to pay your bill. I went out of the country for vacation and I got super overcharged. After not being able to reach anybody to help me explain why all the charges, I got so fed up I decided to just to pay and cancel my phone. That was on september, and I am still receiving bills from them.
I finally called and I was told if I don't pay the last 40$, it will just go to a "third party". I am so upset, I don't even want to type anymore.
I hate T-Mobile. I hope they go out of business. I really do.
T-Mobile went into my account and withdraw funds without authorization to do so. When I spoke to them about...
tmobile sold me a 2 yr contract and I picked them for a free flight. the com. THEY chose as theri partner is a BIG scam and fraud, I type slow and I could write pages of what I have done so far to at least get my money bakc. they lie all the time. after making it impossible to fly at all and a person has to make changes to accomodate them then they send a different itneerary and they are totally and completely unreachable thru any means of media and T - mobile wouldn't help at all. they nver did a price match and I was told by muy credit card co. to dispute the entire amt. so I did. now the tickets have no value and U. S. air doesn't caare nor does T-mobile and tlc is going to get what they deserve a sI see complaints on them all the time on many site!!! they will fold and I hope I can sue them. they have caused me great stress and tears and cost valuable time. I lost $531 plus many other expenses and countless hours.
what do I do? I tried to reach the attorney general in Mass. (one of the states they are in and showas on my papers). no answer. I really am angry that out of 3 lg. companys noone will make this right with me and my child. so much for the free flight and our vacation. My # is [protected] if any pre law students can help or anyone has advice. I pray soon a class action lawsuit ensues. HOW DO I start this???
This is the letter I sent to Tmobile executive e-mail accounts I found on-line after 1 hour on the phone with regular customer service department, out of all nights on my birthday 11/05/09 :)
My Name is Jasmin and I have been with t-mobile for few months now, I have 3 lines 586-703-XXXX; 586-662-XXXX, and 586-850-XXXX on my account working on 2 Blackberries and a regular Motorola cell phone.
The Motorola cell phone (586-850-XXXX) has been breaking down constantly and I had it replaced 3 times already. This last time I have sent in this phone to be replaced after I received the new phone I got a letter that the phone I have sent in was damaged and that my account will be charged $100 out of warranty fee, the phone was NOT damaged and I should not be charged this fee.
I called your Customer Service department and talked to the regular representative and a supervisor named Douglas employee ID 0840193 and they told me that there is nothing that they do for me. I also asked to for them to provide me the proof of this alleged damage, they said they can not do that.
It is not fair that after all the issues I had with this Motorola phone I get charged $100 for "damaged" phone which was not the case.
I was with Verizon for 10 years and have switched to T-Mobile to get good customer service and a good value. So far this is not what I have experienced.
I am reaching out to you for your help. I am asking for this $100 fee to be waived.
I will remain to be a customer and hope to stay with T-Mobile for years, if this issue is resolved.
Thank you in advance.
I called T-Mobile requesting a copy of the terms and conditions of my agreement and the specifics regarding my account. They told me that they would not fax or e-mail and that I must go to the store where I purchased my phone. I told them that I did my transactions with them over the telephone and have never used a store and if they can change modify or add new lines, etc. over the phone, they should be able to conduct my business electronically as well. I asked to speak to a manager and had the ugliest, rudest conversation of my life. "Johnny" told me that he did not like my tone and he was putting me on warning and that I could not speak with anyone else and too bad for me. As a long time, loyal, pay-on-time customer, I was completely disgusted at their treatment and do not recommend anyone do business with this firm.
My Dear Brothers & Sisters, Today I came home from a long day of work & school, and in the top of my desk...
Back in the beginning of January I bought my daughter a side kick slider two weeks into it the phone shut off by itself and came back on doubling her contacts.
This kept happing over and over. Come to find out there was a malfunction with the side kicks and they stopped selling them. They clam that the problem was fixed and the started selling them again. As it turns out they didn't fix the problem and it is still happening.
They said they would exchange the phone but they couldn't promise the phone would be new it may be kind of new. I asked if they could just fix hers and they said they cant promise if they would be able to. This makes no since just because the 14 days are over they wouldn't make any promises.
I paid good money for this phone I think the only reason there doing this is cause they know the problem wasn't fixed. There has to be something I can do they only give you 14 days cause they know that this problem happens on most of these phones around the 14th day I just don't know how these people get away with this and how they can get away with taking your new phone and giving you back a used one. They know the problem with the phone they admitted to it they should be selling it.
Ok just quickly posted this on their forums: I am at wits end at this point. I will be posting negative...
I dropped my phone in water and took it to T Mobil for repair or replacement. The salesman wanting to make a buck so he said most people don't buy a replacement phone they just add another line on their account and they can get a new free cell phone.
The Kicker, the salesman said my phone was $200. to replace. When I said I'd look at the other phones, I saw mine was $89. not $200. to replace. The salesman just wanted to make money adding a line to my plan which would have cost $240. When he saw I wasn't going to fall for his little scam, the service went straight down hill. I couldn't get the new phone to work and he didn't really care. This happened at the Rosecrans and Midway Drive Store in San Diego. Bad Service and Sneaky Salesmen.
