Overcharging and no help!

Overcharging and no help!

I've been with Sprint for over 10 years and am fed up! In September I was offered the "free" newly activated phone line for being a loyal customer. I was already up for upgrades so I figured "why not? Perfect timing"...it's been a billing nightmare ever since!  I setup a new line as the "reward" instructed and upgraded ny husband's phone to the Note 9 under the 50% promotion that was going on at the time and got a new tablet. Later, I canceled 2 phone lines not needed anymore and an old tablet line on my account. The new Tab and phones came super quick and were working great, then we got the bill.....$1500!! No way!! The "free" line is not free at all! The upgrade was put under the wrong # so when I canceled the unused line I got hit with upgrade and early disconnect fees all on a line I wasn't evan using anymore! The I have contacted Sprint at least 20 times ever since and keep getting different excuses, no solutions, apologies, etc...., every one has said they are going to have the account looked at by the next support tier, but yet no one has called or emailed to resolve this! I've had to explain these issues so many times and some agents try to act like they are listening but they aren't. They all say what comes up on the computer screen and some act like I did something wrong or I'mtrying to cheat them!  I'm tired of the run around, the outrageous charges, terrible service, quickly rising prices and hidden non-applicable to me charges. Not worth the stress!

Re: Overcharging and no help!

It sounds like you've been through a lot. It also sounds like you've encountered a lot of misrepresentation through that store. Was the 50% off Note 9 added to the new line or the existing line? Was it started on the new line and then moved to the existing line? To ensure proper eligibility on a phone promotion, we require it to stay on the line it's started on. Swapping it onto an existing line will forfeit the promotion credits/discounts. I'm not completely sure why you were offered a "free" line, these promotions are typically reserved for new customers on a limited time basis. I'm happy to review the account, however, I can't guarantee I can change anything that has already been applied.

I finally have someone actually looking into the account now, like pen and calculator looking! But, to answer your question, the 50% promo was supposed to be on an existing line and the "free" line was a new line on the account. Then when someone was trying to "fix" something it got switched to a different line (conveniently one that was canceled) entirely! So bad made worse made really bad ordeal
