Examination Of Online And Wireless Services

Jan 9, 2008
A consumer will not be able to make a true examination of online and wireless services of any cellular telephone service provider until they receive a huge cellular telephone bill that was not in the monthly budget. The branded carrier of the service will typically bill the customer for services and expect prompt payment in less than 30 days. The connectivity rating of online and wireless services will go to zero after one month has passed because the branded carrier will suspend the services with no further warnings or alerts.

An examination of the online and wireless services provided by that wireless service carrier will eventually reveal that the multi-billion dollar corporation that provided these types of services to millions was not interested in continuing the service relationship unless the consumer agreed to pay an additional deposit of $500 before the end of the month. If online and wireless services were suspended for non-payment, then the idiocy of the expectations that the consumer could fund such a large deposit to restore service could mean that the service will remain off forever.

The collection efforts for such an account will be swift and impersonal at first. The multi-billion dollar corporation will charge-off the sum of an overdue cellular telephone bill after 30 days even if the customer has contacted the branded carrier and inquired about the online and wireless payment options. One might think that the online and wireless services could have remained in-house where customer service professionals could help cellular telephone customer's work a payment plan out that will bring the account current.

Many cellular telephone customers are sorely disappointed to learn that the account has been turned over to a collection agency even though no other late payments were made while the account was active. Many cellular telephone customers agree to a 2-year contract for online and wireless services, and never expect that period of service to lapse because the carrier did not receive instant payment for the online and wireless services that were provided by the billion dollar brand name carrier.

To make matters worse, most cellular customers are fined a $175 deactivation fee on the final bill for the online and wireless services account. The online and wireless service provider made the decision to deactivate all services on the account, but online and wireless customers withstand the worst because they are held responsible for paying those penalties although they still wanted phone service. Telephonic contact with the customer service representative will render very little and contact with a supervisor might seem very superficial.

Online and wireless customers do not get a full range of services that help alleviate payment problems before they escalate to bigger problems. The service concept by certain online and wireless service carriers extends only to the point where the billion-dollar corporation is able to sell the consumer a service. The total customer service concept does not exist with certain carriers because they are more concerned on making a profit than helping cellular customers figure out how to pay a large cellular bill.

Consumers should carefully examine the entire contract for cellular telephone service. Since company policies prohibit the acceptance of bill payments if the $500 deposit has not been made with it, consumers have very few options at their disposal. Consumers could place a four-digit parental control on the text messaging features that would keep the cost down on the cellular telephone bills.
