Cell-phone contract problems

178 posts in this topic

 

I signed the contract so I can use the phone within Germany.

 

 

So you are saying that your prepaid phone does not work within Germany? What has changed so that you now do not need to use a phone within Germany anymore and wish to get out of this contract?

 

Oh, and why didn't you just get a prepaid that does work within Germany? :)

I reserved the pre-paid phone for international use only so that I know exactly how much I am spending on SMS and calls.

 

What has changed? I will be traveling a lot, not just within Germany, and have decided that pre-paid would be the best option. I will not be faced with a bill at the end of the month that I have to go through, page by page, and make sure all the usage information is correct. But since Vodafone refuses to cancel the contract EARLY after I have offered to pay all the fees, I will have to continue paying 30 Euros a month, until September 2012. Some will argue it's fair because I signed the contract. I took the information the Vodafone salesmen gave me (special circumstances allow for early contract termination), and now I have to face this battle.

 

Please - someone, anyone - what counts as a special circumstance?

This is my favourite TT thread ever.

 

I agree. I heart this thread.

 

These two are the most entertaining trolls ever. Even though I think this is a wind up thread (no one is really this dense), I don't even care and can only hope it goes on long enough to help me pass the time until I go into labor.

That would be a question for the company themselves.

 

 

You're either trolling or completely deranged.

 

I vote both. :)

As a soldier I will write to my governor who happens to be Austrian by ethnicity, and maybe he will look into Germany's socialist (quasi-democratic) dictatorship. They allow Turks to suck off on the welfare system and tons of punjabis, blacks, and asians (aka schlitzaugen), but don't want to reconsider cutting a contract short for a White American Christian family. This is why Germany is going down hill. They are nesting the 3rd world immigrants and making taxes unbearable for working class (at almost 20% tax rate), while they can't offer a termination option with a penalty cost for White Americans. I say to Germany; fine, let the Indians and the rest of the jungle bunnies eat your country from the inside out.

 

Oh, don't start the racist crap in my new favorite thread please. It totally takes away the entertainment value. Just stick with the ignorant political statements and equating a private contract with government corruption, Hitler and socialism. And please, don't forget to continue throwing in the lies here and there that are easily proven false. Love it!

As a soldier

In your prev. posts you stated you were in the Air force. If this were true, then you would be an Airmen.. Not a soldier.

Get it right.. You are just continuing to show everybody here just how stupid you really are.. Perhaps you are in the army. After all

they tend to accept the stupidest people in society these days, and so far you seem to fit the bill.

Wait wait I know what this thread needs:

 

 

 

In all honesty I am very proud to be an American and I support patriotism. But moments like this really make me hang my head in shame and I hope and pray other expats realize we are not all as dense as is often portrayed.

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

 

 

You don't sign German "socialist" contracts, yet you have an apartment in Munich? How interesting.

Please do not make yourself more ridiculous than you already are. What has WHITE got to do with anything?

To be honest with you Miss Lidi, you have nobody else to blame other than yourself. You should see this as a valuable lesson: make sure you know what you're signing, before you sign it.

 

I find it really difficult to believe that this huge bill of yours came as a surprise to you. It's much more likely that you continued using the service without having any real intention to pay the bill in the first place and now you're trying to blame vodafone for forcing you to sign a such a long contract!

 

I do of course realise that it's easy to get carried away with things like contract phones but the only way to deal with it is to be honest about it. There is NOTHING wrong with hitting a rough patch, but there is EVERYTHING wrong in trying to lie your way out of it. And, hitting a rough patch doesn't mean that your liability suddenly disappears. You're a grown up now - you have to take responsibility for your actions.

 

The best thing for you to do now, is to contact vodafone and explain the situation to them. You can negotiate some kind of repayment proposal and the chances are, it won't reach the stage of have a entry on your SCHUFA file. Then, you can change your tariff to the cheapest one they have available, and pay the monthly fee until the contract expires.

 

Believe it or not - simply de-registering is not some miracle cure. They do sometimes check!

I did post about that before.

 

I can't believe it is real.

The above would not count as special circumstances. If you really were leaving Germany, that could count as special circumstances but from what you said, you don't have a special circumstances cancel clause in your contract.

I saw that and I agree I think its a gag in general I really do. It is so far out there at this point especially with our new friend USA.

But you know I am never shocked on TT anymore :lol:

 

I have to agree with Silent reader this is a great way to pass the time, we still have 6 and a half hours if the babies plan to be punctual.

I was thinking paint chips, but I suppose that is plausible as well. ;)
