New York Agency Wants Sprint To Pay ETF To Dropped Customers

New York Agency Wants Sprint To Pay ETF To Dropped Customers

The New York State Consumer Protection Board suggest that Sprint pay $200, the amount it would have charged customers to end their contracts, to the 1000 customers it dumped for calling customer service too much. Mindy Brockstein, the board’s chairperson, told the AP:

“These former Sprint customers will have to purchase new phones and incur other expenses and inconveniences if they want to continue receiving wireless service,” Bockstein said. “Sprint Nextel should do more to improve the quality of its customer service and this is a good place to start.”

Brockstein says she’s send a letter to Sprint requesting the payout, and if they refuse, she will be approaching New York lawmakers who she claims are already interested in creating a “Wireless Customer Bill of Rights.”

“Our records indicate that over the past year, we have received frequent calls from you regarding your billing or other general account information. While we have worked to resolve your issues and questions to the best of our ability, the number of inquiries you have made to us during this time has led us to determine that we are unable to meet your current wireless needs…”

Michael says:

I have called them alot over the past year, but those calls were to have them fix their errors. I’ve always been polite to their employees (whether it be over the phone or in a Sprint store). I’ve never missed a payment and have always paid my bill early. I’ve never asked them for discounts or freebies.
