    Here's my story......

    I put my Handicapped sister-in-law on our plan as she now lives with us and we are her guardian. She cannot read so we got a Motorola phone that reads the contact list out loud.

    Anyway, when I got the phone, I asked for anything that may occur charges on the phone be blocked. (I already have 2 lines like this for my young brother and sister in law who are early teens). The rep at the store said that was not a problem and I was on my way.

    Yesterday I get a text saying my bill is ready and its over $500!!!!!!! WTH happened?

    I call 611 and the rep proceeds to tell me the block didn't get activated till Jan 15 and I bought the phone on Jan 6. My handicapped sister had either hit a bunch of buttons to download $300 worth of stuff or she let a friend at school/work use her phone.

    The first rep said I was SOL basically because the block didn't start till 15th. I asked to speak to her supervisor.

    I explained myself again to the supervisor and she too said the charges were legit. But she offered to reduce the charges by half. I said I guess if that's all that can be done. Then she comes back onto the line and said she will take the full $300 off since I am a valued customer and she understands the mistake made at the store.

    THANKS to 611 support!!!!!!!!

    Holy cow! Glad things got taken care of. Things like this happens all the time. I generally take that into account as a rep. And even when I accidentally incured $200 in data chgs by playing Guitar Hero after going from america choice to nationwide (per min data to $1.99 per mb)
    I put $15 vpak on in exchange for the chgs. They gladly did it. I always take that lesson when I'm on with a customer in the same situation. The chgs may be legit in the system... But you didn't approve them. LOL
    Funny how that works.

    The thing I was trying to explain to the original rep on the phone tat it wasn't my fault that the rep at the store didnt start the block on that phone when I bough it. But everything got resolved and I am very thankful.

    Hopefully you filled out an NPS survey for the rep who helped you!
