Cannot get resolution

blankusername

    I am lost and frustrated. I upgraded my phone that I still owed money on, and then immediately was unsure if I would still have to pay for the phone. I called support that same night to cancel the order, and she told me that I was eligible for an upgrade and the billing would stop on my Galaxy S7 as soon as T-mobile received it. I got my S8, no packing slip to return the S7. I called back, questioned if this upgrade would cancel out the S7 contract and I was told that as soon as T-mobile got the S7, they would no longer charge me the monthly installment fee for the S7.

     

    Long story short, I ended up calling over 5 times trying to get a shipping label, and when I finally got the shipping label and sent it back, they still billed me. I called again, was told they received the phone and will credit my account. They did not credit my account. I called back and now they claim I was never eligible for an upgrade and they have not received the S7, but she would call me back in a few days to update me on the status. Three days later, I get a voicemail saying she will call on Monday. Monday came and went, no call. I got an email today saying that the T-Mobile handset order Research Request shows that the equipment was never received. I have a UPS tracking number that shows it was received.

     

    How do I get satisfaction on this? I am frustrated, angry and just want this to be resolved. I have spent hours trying to find a resolution, spent money, and it just feels like I was abandoned and robbed. I would call back, but I will just be dumped into a black hole again. Can someone tell me how to escalate this?

        My usual suggestion is that at some point stop calling and start writing letters and become familiar with the terms of the Fair Credit Billing Act.

          Hey blankusername,

           

          We don't want you to keep getting charged for a phone you sent back! We are going to need to take a closer look at your account to see what specifically happened from the start. If you have a Facebook or Twitter account, I would recommend that you reach out to our social media care team T-Force using the Facebook or Twitter icons in my signature. They will be able to pull up your account and see a full history of what has happened and help get to the bottom of all of this.
