in the U.S. Cellular forum

Plans are plans and in the fine print it says that all plans are subject to change without notice. There is a nice little disclaimer that says this on all the brochures. Along with that no company ever advertises an end date for plans etc. So therefore there cannot be any type of repercussion due to that all rate plans and features can be subject to change w/o notice. However the only clause in the ...

When you purchase a phone you pay a down payment and finance the rest (hence $20/month). If you want another phone (upgrade) you need to pay off the financing (buy the rest of the phone). Once that is done, you pay another down payment and restart the financing.

Former USCC employee that was in a transition market. We were told at that time that it was business as usual. So new activation, upgrades and the likes were still acceptable practices. It wasn't until Jan. that the phone prices went up and the mind set changed from selling to customer service alone. I understand that you feel mislead however for legal reasons the network will not just turn off when the deal closes in a few ...

I find it amusing that USCC said that they didn't need to carry the iPhone and once the Chicago, St. Louis and Indiana markets were to be transitioned to Sprint then suddenly the mentality changed to lets get the iPhone. Weird how it happens that way...

I to work for the company and I agree that the iPhone is a great product. However there are many comparable phones that do the same and if not more than apples product. I've used an iPhone, a blackberry and currently use an Android. I'm actually the most happiest with my current product and my better half has an iPhone and hates it with a passion. Apple will have its followers but Android has the ...

Ok, I'm wrong about the 30 day part, however as a company they should express compassion for the customer and allow them to do the 30 day exchange from the day the customer tuned on the phones. Which they do.

How is that info not correct, if they purchased the phones from USCC "the company" over the phone or online they can be physically returned to a company owned location (COR). Because they were purchased from "the company", they cannot return them to an Agent location (ABC Wireless "powered by USCC.) Ex. You cannot buy product A from Walmart and return the same product A to Target because they sell the same product A. When it says ...

Once a smartphone has been discontinued or is marketed for prepaid are the only phones that will be able to be used on prepaid. Hence why all premium phones can be used on prepaid now.

It goes by when you actually activate the the service. If you waiting for non activated phone to arrive in the mail your 30 day period will start when the phones are turned on. You can exchange them under that 30 day rule. you would however need to pay the difference between the phone prices. There will be no additional fees beyond that. Make sure you visit a COR store to do the exchange.

Yeah i get your point, and its totally valid, im not arguing that, so when you see these commercials, are you in southern cali, or florida, or anywhere we aren't...NO.... they are only shown in areas USCC has service and stores. I'm just explaining the other side of the coin...

Re: False Advertising, that's EXACTLY what it is!!!
Aug 5, 2011, 10:37 AM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

The point im trying to make is not that USCC is a national carrier, I agree 100% that it is not. I do consider VZW/AT&T to be national carrier b/c more often then not you will see a store in most locations throught the US. What I am saying is that USCC claims that thier service is better in markets where other national carriers exist... which 9/10 times is totaly accurate. In downtown Chicago my service ...

Now going back to the orginal statement... the areas that USCC does have coverage, thier coverage and service quality has routienly surpassed the quality of other national carriers in those areas. Nowhere does it say that USCC is actually a national carrier. But the service does work throught the country and it is better than other carrier too...

How is it false advertising? Our service will work just like any other carrier. USCC just doesn't have a store in every city in the US. And that also goes for every other carrier. Not just by adding an agent in these other cities. There area areas in this county that certain carriers service cannot be activated. They can certainly be used but the phones will roam. If you use more than ...

in the U.S. Cellular forum

Both of you are exactly right and there is no denying that we are not a national carrier by nature of the world, however if you use the term reginal carrier then that leads the customer to believe that thier cellphone service will only work in thier areas only. Which is not true. The campaign is to let the customer base know that USCC provides national service so the phone works anywhere you travel within reason.

Its a raise in fees that the customer has no control over. Can Verizon Wireless Change This Agreement or My Service? We may change prices or any other term of your Service or this agreement at any time,but we'll provide notice first, including written notice if you have Postpay Service. If you use your Service after the change takes effect, that means you're accepting the change. If you're a Postpay customer and a change to your Plan or this agreement has ...

Re: confused about ETF

in the Verizon Wireless forum

In rereading the article is does mention reg fees, but it doesn't mention that it was passed down by the gov't. If the gov't passed it down then your completely right, you cannot get out of a contract because the gov't raised the fees to VZW, but if VZW is raising them on thier own then its fair game.

That is correct.

Re: "material change"
Jul 9, 2011, 10:03 AM

Thats what they would do to keep you from switching. Yes but that would only work for the rest of the current contract. If you were to renew again the $.03 charge returns and there is not crediting.

Definition: A change in the meaning or language of a legal document, such as a contract, deed, lease, or Commercial Paper, that is made by one party to the document without the consent of the other after it has been signed or completed.

We may change prices or any other term of your Service or this agreement at any time,but we'll provide notice first, including written notice if you have ...

Re: confused about ETF

The regulatory fees are mandated by the gov't if they go up then VZW goes up. There is not clasue for waiving of etf for reg. fees. The material fees are something that VZW charges themselves to the customers, not because the gov't says so. Read your policy.

Re: confused about ETF
Jul 7, 2011, 5:58 PM

As a question was posed eariler in this thread, they will credit you the fees back for the remainder of the CURRENT CONTRACT, but what about beyond that CURRENT CONTRACT. That it why thise clause exists.

Re: confused about ETF

if you let your 24 months expaire then you go month to month with the same fees. just because your out of your contract doesnt mean the fees dissappear.

Re: confused about ETF

and that again is a breach of contract, why is ok for sprint to do it that way and not vzw, I had a lawyer (my grandfather) look that over and confirmed that how it works. Yes VZW can credit you for it, and they will try but its not up to them, its up to the customer according to the contract that they provided and the customer signed. there is no loophole to the loophole. Sorry ...

Re: confused about ETF
Jul 7, 2011, 1:38 PM
in the Verizon Wireless forum

This fee increase is from VZW, not the gov't. VZW and any other carrier charges fees because the gov't charges them. The raise is in a fee that you pay directly to VZW. By raising this fee you are entitled to terminate your service and switch to another carrier with out being charged an ETF. So VZW is saying that they will credit you the $.72 to keep you as a customer. But if ...

Re: Sprint still buying contracts?
Jun 24, 2011, 12:10 PM
in the Sprint forum

I believe that sprint offerED a bill credit if you switched from another carrier and switched to a smartphone. The credit would go towards the sprint bill not the buyout of another carrier. but then at that point you would be paying off the previous carrier.

After reading this I do work for another company but I though I would share this customer comment. "I cannot use my phone because it gives off to much radiation! I hold it in my left hand it hurts, my right hand it hurts, on my leg it hurts and when in my pocket my hip hurts." This happened not once, not twice, but THREE times. We wanted to ask if she had been to ...

Re: Why no cool Motorola offerings....
Apr 11, 2011, 8:40 AM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

No not at all, basically we don't want anything at this time that Motorola has to offer because the "exclusive" phones are taking most of their attention and as of right now the phones we have are competitive and comparable to Motorola's offerings.

Re: Why no cool Motorola offerings....
Apr 8, 2011, 12:06 PM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

Motorola is focusing on thier exclusives right now, since USCC is a smaller carrier and tries not to work in the exclusive phones market there have not been many phones that USCC wants to offer. It also has to deal with supply and demand and also working with the manuf. to find the right price and quanity that the cell carrier wants to have and afford.

More than likely your safe for now. What usually happens is that AT&T will create all these new positions just like yours and you will have to re-apply for your job again. If you get it great...if not better dust off the resume.
