On September 18, 2008 T-Mobile debited my bank account $318.61, $47.62 was a legitimate monthly service bill the remaining $270.99 was a restocking fee for a replacement phone that I never received (my phone is under warranty). They'd sent me the replacement phone in June and when I went to UPS to pick it up the box was not taped, damaged and empty. I refused delivery and immediately called T-Mobile, the representative assured me that there would not be a restocking fee for this phone, and sent a second replacement phone to me. I got that phone several days later and returned the defective phone per the instructions sent with the replacement phone. I have the UPS tracking print outs for both phone orders and spoke with four different customer service reps. and a customer service manager between the 18th and the 26th of September when I went to a local T-Mobile store to try to resolve this issue. Each of these people acknowledged that I'd been billed in error, each person could view the UPS tracking and acknowledged that I did not receive two replacement phones. It appears that customer service can only request the refund, another department, The Cash Refund Team, actually approves and issues the refund, this department has repeatedly denied my refund because the return tracking label in the box was not used. Since the 26th of September I have been working with a sales manager at the local store and to date October 10, 2008 I still do not have a refund. Unfortunately for me, I did not actually have $318.61 in my bank account at the time that T-Mobile debited my account so I have been charged another $175.00 in bounced check charges and another $50.00 in returned check fees from two other companies where I'd written checks and they bounced. I am now $495.99 behind with no end in sight. I speak to T-Mobile every day and cannot get past the customer service people to a person that actually has the authority to refund my monies to me. I have discontinued my EASY Pay option, but this can take up to two billing cycles so it is likely that eight days from now, my bank account will again be debited for my monthly service, sadly, there will not be sufficient funds to cover this debit so I will again be charged returned check fees and T-Mobile will probably suspend my service for non-payment. To make matters worse I have 12 months left on my contract so I will also be charged an early termination fee of $150.00.
http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/ele/861442981.html i contacted the person on that add about the new sidekicks 2008, the person claimed that worked with tmobile and added a credit or bonus to my account, i saw the amount sum up to the account so i saw that and proceded to order the phones, we paid the person 300 through western union the person says her name is Nikki Ortiz, everything was good until a month after, Tmobile is charging 941$ for the phones, they saw the balance going up and then the same person that put the credit is the same person that took it out, still knowing that they keep charging the amount, they are not responding my calls, they cut the service, i was trying to negotiate giving the phones back and all that but every try to talk to them is not succesfull, If anyone sees this add don't be fooled, If someone can be of assistance or help please do not hesitate to contact me.
T-mobile, customer services are bare faced liars. The guy I spoke too, belittled me and tried to make me look stupid.
By the end of the phone call he was calling me and liar and wouldn't let me talk as he liked the sound of his own voice.
I changed my bank account details and phoned t-mobile, they made the changes, then 3 months later I get a baliffs letter. I pay the bill phone back t-mobile to which I again let them know my details and again they change them.
3 months later I get another baliffs letter, again I phone get some boy who doesn't even understand what I am saying. I speak slowly and still nothing is entering his head.
I then speak to a supervisor. He tells me I'm a liar, I didn't ring them, they have no notes on the screen. I tell him that I did, he then goes on to say are you calling me a liar, I don't lie our systems don't lie. He then gives me no chance to talk. I then ask when my contract finishes. He said last month!!!????
I ask why am i still being changed and the reason is I haven't given 30 days notice?????????? How does that work when I've signed a contract that says on the 23rd of september my contract expires, that is a legal document that states that. I am then changed twice what I am normally because I'm now not getting the special rate I signed up with???????? Contridiction, I'm either still in the contract or i am not?
This isn't my first bad experience with t-mobile but it will be my last. A few years back their computers went funny and took 6 months direct debit in one go, right before christmas. It wiped my account out and it took 2 months before my money was replaced!!!
DON'T USE T-MOBILE.
I renewed my My-Faves contract with T-Mobile back in November 2007 and sent in all of the paper work to TLC...
I purchased a pay-as-you-go Nokia model 1208 phone from a T-mobile phone distributor 3 months ago...21 June...

Re: xxx-xxx-xxxx (last final notice )
Account: tsukada, lourdes
Date: october 13th, 2008
Dear mr. dotson,
Mr. dotson, attached are bills which have been submitted over, and over again. as you will notice, the dates are in consecutive order and barely enough time to even get a corrected bill before notices of late payments (which is incorrect), automated calls stating i was late with payments and the last bill – “final notice” before sent to collections”.
It is disappointing to find the inference, suggested by ms. young via telephone, the shipping charges were for “equipment i had ordered”. these allegations were once again completely unsubstantiated. therefore, for the record, the details of all “shipping charges” for equipment “i ordered” is listed below for my “record to be intact” and for you to observe the assumptions and continuous phone calls to my home and un-sub stationed notices in the mail.
1. 8/9/08 with kyle of level iii, another cell would be sent out without shipping charges of $10.84 would not be charged
2. 8/15/08 with eric and then rebecca cell again defective and another cell would be sent out to me without any shipping charges to be added to my bill (order# [protected]) – mind you this is the 3rd replacement). the defective cell was to be dropped off at the nearest t-mobile retail store – which was done. this confirmation of not charges on shipping was also confirmed with kevin.
now here is a “history of statements” provided in chronological orders, so you may observe the amount of follow through and headaches your company has caused and again, unfounded inferences.
1. bill of $102.72 which had a due date of september 24, 2008 was received by me on 9/16/08. a phone call was placed with t-mobile customer service and a question arose on the shipping charges reflected on the invoice. a letter was faxed to your hq, whereby after the receipt of the fax to your office, ms. young left a message stating, the afore mentioned, (i.e. items ordered by me. within the message, her message indicated and led to believe, the shipping charges would be credited and the final bill would be to the amount of $75.54. her voice mail also indicated these were removed as a “courtesy”. as you may imagine, most consumers do expect a corrected invoice and normally wait in the mail so as to pay and show evidence the amount paid is correct. this avoid futures misunderstandings with payees.
2. on october 5th, 2008 i received an invoice with a “past due” inference and the amount of $75.54 was confirmed within the letter. in the meantime, numerous automated telephone calls were being received on my voicemail at home stating the bill was past due.
3. on october 7th, 2008, a statement was received with a “past due” notice. as you will notice the date indicated on this is september 30th, 2008. as you will notice the due date for the previous bill was indicated as september 24th – and the date for this statement is not even 4 business days later. nevertheless, a payment was made on october 7th and posted, by my bank, as completed on october 8th, 2008.
4. on october 9th, 2008, another invoice for $75.54 was received stating indicating “this is your final notice and the next step would be collections.” again, notice the date of the october 6th, 2008!!!
Mr. dotson based on the history transactions and results listed below, you may concur with me, an invoice reflecting the corrected amount is the minimum any consumer would wait for before generating a payment.
1. past history of the phone calls back and forth
2. the nightmares of the defective cell phones
3. major mess ups with my laptop
4. erasing of my contacts several times from my cell phone
in this case even more when the past history is so nebulous and plenty of cause for a consumer to have the assurances the transactions, credits and follow-ups to complaints are posted with clear evidence to the consumer (i.e. paper). a simple telephone message by ms. young stating an amount, is not sufficient evidence the matter has been properly handled.
I would also your cooperation in verifying the information prior to hassling consumers with unwarranted phone calls and automated invoices for “incorrect transaction histories”.
Mr. dotson, it is unfortunate; the experiences are still negative with t-mobile and evidenced once again with the final transaction. these types of experiences are the ones which alienates consumers vs. building loyal consumers. as can be evidenced with the current market crisis, excellent customer service is the driving force in today’s market which builds loyalty to a company.
All cooperation to finalize and put to rest on this matter are appreciated. i would also request this matter of “resolution and final closure” be put in writing. it is an unfortunate request i make now, yet based on the past history, this is unavoidable.
I appreciate your cooperation and look forward to receiving the finalized confirmation in writing from t-mobile.

I have Suncom and the telephone customer support was always top notch. Friendly, caring people that never brought the worse out in me. T-Mobile has since taken over Suncom. I called last night due to the fact my internet browser on my phone would not connect to the internet. I called T-mobile to get assistance. The aggressive woman who answered the phone asked for the last 4 digits of the person's social which is my wife. From day one, I was put on the account and given permission to make any and all decisions I wanted to. The Suncom representative told me I could use my last 4 when I called customer service on the account. I had to call Suncom several time to resolve problems and since I was on the account, I was always helped using the last 4 digits of my SSN. Now, they won't. The idiot told me she saw my name and that I was able to make decisions on the account, but still would not assist me because I could not remember the last 4 of my wife's SSN. Then she became loud and mean ever so refusing to help me. I asked to talk to her supervisor and she then informed me she could "guarantee" the supervisor would agree with her (they must be good friends).
You should really think twice before using T-mobile. Their telephone support was the worst ever, PERIOD!
After the merge with Sun Com, apparently customers have been receving outrageous phone bills for text messaging. Me included! $750 for over 3000 text messages. I found other people with the same problem on line. The number [protected] is what is on the bill for outgoing only text messages. We are looking for more people with this same problem. Right now, this is only affecting people in the North and South Carolina area. T-Mobile has been absolutely no help with rude customer service. T-Mobile was not our choice for cellular service. We were with Suncom. Go to 800notes.com to find out more information.
On Friday, October 3, 2008, I applied for an account online, stating that I wished to port my mobile number...
Misrepresented terms of plan we purchased; told we could add up to two more lines at any time on our contract. (later told that each addition of a line constituted a new tw0-year contract) When the poor quality phones that we were initially provided in their promotional effort to get new business decomposed, we were told we would have to pay about $200 for a new phone or enter into a new tw0-year contract. (get the theme?) At that point, we wanted to cancel the contract but were told we would have to wait until the end of the two-year period or pay an early cancellation fee. We were told to send that request IN WRITING 30 days before the end of the contract, that a phone call would not suffice. When we did that several months later and 30 days before the end of our contract, we were sent a notice that we had to CALL instead. When we replied that we were following directives and that this was the reason we were through with T-Mobile, they continued to contact us by email. Then we were told that the two lines we had added had new tw0-year contracts and could not be cancelled without an early cancellation fee. Finally, T-Mobile sent a letter to us that they were cancelling our lines (all four) and that we would be billed through September 30, 2008. However, on September 29, 2008, they refused to release our numbers to our new carrier. On September 30, they cancelled our lines, though they expect us to pay THROUGH September 30. We now have no phone numbers and no way for our elderly father to reach us. All efforts to resolve this have been head-banging experiences. Thanks, T-Mobile. You get the Black Hat Award for 2008 for despicable service and insufferably knot-headed personnel.
My name Is Philippe, I bought a Blackberry 8320 curve over two months ago now.on the 9/24/08 i recieved a letter from tmobile concerning my rebate form stated that: "we regret that we are unable to process your request as received.This rebate offer requires activation on a tmobile voice rate plan having a value of 34.99 or higher...etc.Now! my questions are:
how come when i purchased the plan and the phone none of the sale representatives that i spoke to never bother to mention anything about the conditions on the rebate? even more, why they simply handled me my rebate form when "I SUPPOSE" they already know they i had to add a certain features on my plan in order to collect the money for my rebate? This is what i was told this morning when i called tmobile rebate customer care #[protected].So far, all this seem understandable. however, when i was transfered to the supervisor her name i believe is Morgan and she was going though my rebate form with me, letting me know about the conditions on that form etc, but my rebate is missing a lot of informations that she was mentioning.i kept telling her i've the same rebate form that i sent to her two months ago and any of what she was telling me was on my form.for over 5 minutes i was on the phone with her trying to persuade her about my rebate form that she clearly stated that the form that i sent her had all the informations concerning the rebate when i know for sure that the exact copy that i have in my possession right now is totally different.Well guess what? she hang up on me. i called back again, my mistake i got her on the phone again because the representative told me she was not available and she was going to transfer me to a different supervisor.HEY LUCKY ME! i was going over the same thing again with her, after a few minutes she started yelling at me because i was not able to agree with her on the information she was giving me on my rebate.well! i did not want to waste any of her time i simply told her thanks for her time. But i can guarantee her and tmobile this is not the end of it.
Let them know how you feel

I bought Motorola Rizr phone from T-Mobile which is still under warranty. It suddenly stopped working and T-Mobile agreed to exchage the phone. Talked to Dona and Ashley from T-Mobile for almost an hour and half. They want to force me to pay for two way shipment. Besides they offered to exchange this faulty phone with another possibly used phone on which max warranty would be 90 days rather than one year. New phone comes with warranty of a year but they denied to offer it. Rather than paying for hassle, they wanted to get more money from me. At the end I was told that they will give 400 extra minutes worth 160$. Rather than that I requested just to waive off shipment cost for which they denied. I also offerred that I will collect exchanged phone from nearest T-Mobile dealer so that I do not have to pay for shipment but they did not agree to that either !! I bought a phone from dealer and so should I be able to get it exchanged through dealer. It is not written that I can not do that but they do not want to agree to that option or any other option rather than forcing me to pay more. When I suggested to pick up a replacement phone from dealer, I was asked 2-3 times that if I want my phone to be exchanged or not !! I certainly did not like such sarcastic threat and customer service experience. I am still under one year of contract so I am stuck with T-Mobile till then.
I went to t-mobile on-line because i received an text that said i message from... i went to the web site and did not see anything about messages. I sent a customer service request as well as directly responding to text. I have not received any reply or acknowledge for my request.
I have been with T-Mobile for past 2 years. I have trusted them so much that I even signed up for automated billing after a few months that I joined them. I constantly receive a monthly bill of around 48 dollars. For past two months, my bills have been outrageously high. For the month of june, they charged me 166.70 and for the month of July, they charged me 441.34.
I did not notice it last month but this month, because of the huge month, the bill got my attention and I contacted T-mobile about the same. They said the bills were because of the international charges. I explained them that I have used a phone card to call internationally and these charges should not have been there. They refused to take these charges off my account.
I have used the same calling card for past 1 year and never had a problem. In fact, for the month of June, i can clearly see that in some instances, it shows the calls being made from calling card. For the calls they said I made internationally, I can clearly see that i dialed calling card number just before these calls. After talking to them the second time, the manager agreed to take off half the charges as a matter of 'Good Will' but I still don't understand why i need to pay for the calls I never made.
I canceled the service immediately and will never sign up with T-mobile again. I will inform the student body at university of memphis, where I went to graduate school that they boycott TMobile. I will do the same at Washington University where I presently work.
Letter to Sue Nokes, CCOO of T-Mobile
I added a second line to my account with T-Mobile so that a very close friend of mine could call home whenever he wanted to without having to stand in line at the MVC on base in Talil, Iraq. When he received the phone in the mail from me he immediately tried to call me and couldn't get through. He tried on several occasions to call, but was always cut off by the Iraqi carrier that would route him to the T-Mobile Messaging center in the U.S.
Nevertheless, after one month or less of trying to use the phone, sent it back to me. I called T-Mobile to give the phone back and let them know that the service they said we'd receive was never received and that I wanted to turn the phone off. I was quickly told that my phone bill for that phone was $333.17 (I believe that's the exact penny amount) and that bill needed to be reconciled. I was stunned to learn that there were actual charges for usage of the phone and had to investigate. Come to find out those charges were for every dropped call ( less than 3 seconds of a call trying to go through ) that my friends made. Those calls were charged and no one ever even had a conversation. Those were all calls that were routed to the T-Mobile Messaging Center and chalked up as conversations = minutes used where calls go through. Not the case.
After finally getting several of those calls taken off the bill ( over a 4 week period of time, where I spoke to 4 T-Mobile customer reps) I asked them to turn the phone off and we'll call it a failed attempt to communicate via cell from Iraq to the U.S. I was again quickly reminded that I would have to pay $200 to have that wish granted.
All the while this ordeal is going on over the Iraq phone, T-Mobile preceded to turn off my cell phone( which was paid up in full and had all my minutes available to me ). This is the cell phone on my business cards and the only number that my consultants use to reach me during the day. I was without a phone for them for 2 weeks. Not to mention it's my HOME phone too.
I paid the phone bill for the second line off once they lowered the cost for bogus calls and my cell was then turned back on. Yet, there is the lingering $200 left that needs to be paid so that the additional phone line is cut off. I'm sorry, but this is where I draw the line with this entire situation. Since I have not paid the $200 to turn off the Iraq phone ( and my cell phone is again paid for in full and the minutes unused ) again, my cell phone is shut off. This is the 2nd week I've been without my phone. Again, I have over 45 consultants that work for me as IT Developers, Network Admins, etc and have zero way for them to reach me when I'm in the field.
All of this wrapped up, means this to me:
I purchased a phone for a U.S. Soldier who has been at war in Iraq now for 2 years. I've been a T-Mobile customer since T-Mobile bought VoiceStream, where I was grandfathered in and had the choice to leave, but decided to stay with T-Mobile. I've been a loyal customer to T-Mobile that long and for that over a phone line that never worked I being treated as though you don't give one care in the world whether or not I'm your customer and have been for many many years. Stunned. I live in Little Rock, Ar and the CEO of Alltel is a close family friend. I've had the opportunity to go with them for years now and still stayed with T-Mobile.
Because I'm sickly disturbed by T-Mobile's absurd customer service practices I decided to turn this over today to Arkansas Congressman Vic Snyder, a veteran congressman and U.S. Army Veteran and as well, a family friend that is really surprised that a cell phone carrier would behave this way over a phone for a U.S. Soldier that never worked. He has copies of the bills that dictate the phone lines, charges, payments, etc and a 5 page statement from me and the U.S. Soldier in Iraq with regard to the situation I just told you about.
Before whomever he decides to speak with out this, I thought I might Google the Customer Service Manager for T-Mobile and see what comes up and try to communicate with them. I learned that you must be the highest ranking manager, so I've sent this request to you.
I'm asking that my cell phone is turned back on and the $200 charge waived. I'm seriously confused on why this is such a tall task. Is this a case yourself can take care of?

I have connected to the T Mobile Hotspot at Munich Airport. Paid 8 Euros to get access. During the sign up I was asked about email, etc. After that I read the following:
"When paying with your credit card you can print out a personalised receipt. This receipt can be stored on your device as a PDF before you login and be printed at a later date. Please note that it is no longer possible to get a receipt after you have logged in."
So, I cannot get a receipt if I miss the first chance, which I am not alerted about. Unacceptable! However, the reason I am writing is not this. The reason is their entire website does not have a single email, or phone number for complaints, issues. How convenient and how disgusting. They only list a phone number for "help", which charges money for each connection. Really really bad business practice.
T- Mobile is allowing one of their customers to make several harassing phone calls to my busine...
T-mobile customer service is very very poor! U can verify all of your information, however the say "we cannot tell you anything about your account over the phone"! They also say "that there are fcc guidelines that prohibits them from telling the customer anything"! I have never been so disgraced by any company! I guess I will now have to explore my new options as to where to take my cellular business! T-mobile has the worst coverage and th worst dropped calls situations ever!!
