Replying to: Sneaky ways carriers extend your contract? by lorna
Re: Sneaky ways carriers extend your contract?
I heard on KFI, The Tech Guy (Leo LaPort) that a carrier can sneakily make you sign up for two more years. He said that when you purchase a new cell phone or make any kinds of adjustments, you should read all the fine print because you could be automatically extending your contract.
Please, could someone expand on this?
I am consdering buying a better phone but do not like the idea that I could be roped into extending my contract.
I am hoping that tMobile will soon have better reception in my area so I can get a better less expensive plan.
Here's the deal, jack. If you want a 500$ phone for 100$ you sign a contract. If you get on a new promotional rate plan, which is cheaper than your grandfathered rate plan that is no longer offered, that's a contract. You knowingly sign for it they can't just sneakily add a contract without your signature. They're not being sneaky, you just have a reading comprehension problem.
