Cell-phone contract problems

Well, at least you're continuing to use reasonable, well thought out arguments as opposed to just throwing out childish insults.

So how if both of you speak German so well can you claim not to have understood the contract???

 

I have ATT. I don't sign socialist contracts within Germany. I own ATT international, iphone 4 32GB, white color

WOW - I love how my reputation on my profile went from neutral to poor in one single day!!

I came here with the intention of seeking advice, and in return I have people judging me left and right. [You said yourself that you are going to lie. How dare we judge you? Did you want everyone to applaud you?]

 

What did you not understand from this post?

 

 

 

 

I have only just waded through to the above post. Let me just give a hint why you might have got reds.

 

 

 

  • I love how other people enjoy reading about the misfortunes of others! [Not a nice thing to accuse people here of, and I do not believe it is true]
  • It's as if they themselves never had a bill they wanted to dispute, [that is why there are threads about the same problem here]
  • no, everyone here is a perfect, law-abiding citizen. [you think?]
  • Coming from another continent to live in Germany is not an easy task, and for all of you who are here trying to find a job and get a residence permit, you can agree with me. [most of us here have been in the same boat, so?]
  • Why are people like myself - who have a change of circumstances and need to get out of a contract - judged with such hatred? Early cancellation fees would fix the problem. [because that is not how it works. And every time you attack people for responding to you, you will get redded.]

 

 

I hope that makes it clearer.

If that is the quality of service members they are letting in the Air Force these days, it is probably best that USA doesn't live in the barracks.

 

Our household is all Army, but I have many friends who are Air Force. I think they would be embarressed to have this troll, USA in their unit.

Who said I am stationed in Munich?

I believe it was you.. Need a refreasher..

 

I am now in Munich, serving in the U.S. military. I want to stress that I am stationed here to spread freedom, like the rest of my unit,

 

 

I am a proud member of the United States Air Force

 

I found an apartment, because I hated the prospect of living in the barracks.

If you really are in the AF, then you will know that in the AF they are called Dorms, not barracks. Barracks is an Army Term.

 

If you want, I can invite you over to training HQ

Please do.. Seeing as you claim to be in the AF, then you should also know that the AF HQ for Training (AETC) is in/on Randolph AFB, TX

Not Europe. So I'll ask for the 2nd time, what is your unit #, and assigned location. I'll come pay you a visit, as I don't need an Invite to

get onto US military bases. I'd would love to have a sit down with you, your 1st Sgt. and Commander.

 

Thankfully I have mastered German and have found an apartment in Bavaria

Again.. There are no US AF Personal stationed in Bavaria. Only Army. If you really are in the AF, then I doubt your commander

would allow you to live so far off base/out of the area.Seeing as Bavaria is several hundred km's from the nearest AF Base.

 

I own ATT international, iphone 4 32GB, white color

 

The White iPhone 4 won't be avail. until summer 2011.. And AT&T also requires a 2yr contract for it's iphone deals (Just like German Providers).. Nice try

Ah, so now USA is a Self Employed Web Writer/Publisher, in the USAF, assigned to an AF Combat unit, which is also part of

HQ Education/Training Command, which happens to be located on some secret AF Base in Bavaria.. Oh, and he lives in an

apartment several 100 km from said base, and is only there for 3 weeks during his Holiday vacation/leave..

Um, it's YOU'RE busted or YOU ARE busted to make it easy for illiterate people like you. Learn how to spell first. Maybe then I will take your 'advice' serious enough.

 

I love seeing how gullible you all are when you read something (aka USA's posts) in the virtual world. I'd hate to know how gullible you truly are in the real world.

I do have a prepaid phone. In addition to this one. I had it all along. I am not disputing my roaming charges, not that they are not outrageous (9 minutes with Germany from Paris cost 40 Euros), I am disputing leaving the contract.

 

 

So if you already had a prepaid phone, why did you make this 2 year contract to get another phone?

 

Next time you travel, it would be a good idea to check your cell phone company website for their rates and then decide if you would be better off leaving your phone at home or buying a pre-paid card with better rates. For example, if you had an Aldi card, you could call Germany from Paris for 46 cents a minute.

As we're picking on people's grammar in an attempt to discredit them, I'll point out that 'seriously' would have been the correct form in that last post.

So you/USA can't back-up your posted facts/claims, and now you have to resort to spelling mistakes..

Don't try to take this topic off on a tangent.. Stick to the posted comments you and USA made..

Just to make you happy, I'll fix my post.

That's pretty much what EVERY PROVIDER charges (as it's the maximum allowed), including Vodafone

Unbelievable. :o

 

People like you sadly contribute to giving the majority of decent Americans living here a bad name.

 

Fact:

 

a) If you had a pre paid phone- Why did you sign a 2 year contract?

 

B) I strongly doubt that any fellow US citizen will step in....

 

c) I also strongly doubt and fervently hope that "USA" has anything remotely to do with the army.

 

Free Advice:

Quite simple: Read what you sign before.

If you had a pre paid phone- Why did you sign a 2 year contract?

 

 

I used my pre-paid phone to send international SMS and to make calls abroad because most of my family members are outside of Germany. I signed the contract so I can use the phone within Germany. Unfortunately, I HAD to make calls in roaming due to unforeseen circumstances. As I mentioned before, I am not complaining about the charges. The 400 Euros will be paid. I was seeking advice on how I can terminate a contract.

I understand your frustration. The problem is.. this is Germany.

 

I used to take tae-kwon-do, swimming and skating lessons in London. I would just pay when I turned up to a class. No registration fee, no monthly payments. Nada... just pay for the lesson when you get there.

 

Over here... oh, no. I found a tae-kwon-do school just round the corner from my old flat. I signed up and then found a. that the teacher was no good really - Korean, and with no ability to teach never mind his practically non-existent German - and b. my timetable changed so much that I could not go when lessons were offered. I had three lessons altogether - but I was locked into paying for the entire year. DM 100 a month (this was 1999-2000).

 

I sent the letter of cancellation about half-way through the contract but had to accept that the earliest time I could get out of the contract was at the end of the 12 months period I had signed up for.

 

Tough but true.

The definitive advice is quite simply that you can't without having exceptional circumstances to cancel and paying a substantial penalty, especially if you are within the first year of the contract. Why has this taken 10 pages of post to answer?
