Wow. Sorry to hear about that. I have some more questions if you have the time please! There is so much more for you to share!Originally Posted by Derfel
How long did you use ineligible phone (and how long ago was this)?
How did they contact you.. by SMS, telephone, email, regular mail? Or did they just cut you off and put charge on your bill?
Did they use your WM device IMEI to determine your ineligibility or did you download lot of stuff?
How did your convesation go with them? What did they say? Did they threaten? Did you plead ignorance (eg who reads the fine print)?
Did they send you a bill? Or did you hvae your credit card on account to top-up and they charged that credit card?
Did you pay the bill? If you didn't pay the bill are they collecting now?
You are still a PayGo customer it appears .. are you a bitter customer or just 'thats life'?
You said that one should "return your WM phone right away". Why did you say that? Did you 'return the WM phone' (who did you return it to btw)?
You also said "dozens of people have been backcharged huge amounts of money for abusing this WAP loophole". How do you know this (I have been looking for info and you are the first person to say they ahve been charged .. I want to understand this better)?
Thanks Derfel, sounds like you learned your lesson. Help us (avoid the proble to) learn ours!!
edited to change questions after reading some of Derfel's past post and to add:
Derfel from this post from 09-16-2009, 17:51 to your post above, you have sure changed your tune : ( ... so can we suppose that you were 'caught' and billed $1999 sometime since this post from 09-16-2009, 17:51 ?
Btw, I noticed that your signature is still " Rogers PAYGo with free calls / free texts / $7-month UL DATA on a WM Phone. Don't ask, I won't tell..." ... shouldn';t you be changing that : )Originally Posted by Derfel
