I was not shown a contract or asked to sign one.
I read all literature that came with the phone - including the owners manual
and sales lit.
No mention of the abilty for a kid to even download ringtones - much less
that there would be an additional charge to download the ringtone; I
wouldn't expect sale info to be in a contract.
All extra expense options should be set to off unless authorized by an
(It took 3 calls to customer service to find someone with enough knowledge
about the phone and plan to tell me what the download charges were far - I
think that somehow is may still be lined to the net and "ringing up" profits
What I do expect is :
Don't sell stuff to by Kid with my authorization.
And if I am not told the price before the sale, I should have an chance to
resend the sale.
Enough said. I'm going to make a call to the public service commisioner and
advice them that Cingular needs to set this option to off - unless
authorized by an adult. (By definition it is a family plan and will have
minors using it.)
Also, to issue a good faith credit to all those down here that where
impacted by the hurricane.
An extra $20 or $30 dollars means a lot to some that lost their house.
As far top posting - I would like to know how not to do that. I'll change
something and see if it works.
