Been there. The court saga for only few $$$ is usually not worth your time
and any collection efforts for contested cellphone (and most other telco)
charges and contracts can be stopped with couple properly written letters
(its their job to go after you in court, not yours).
I need a new GSM provider. I'm going to buy an unlocked tri-band GSM this
Anybody had notable (good or bad) billing and/or customer service
experiences with Voicestream or any other GSM provider with native coverage
in the San Francisco Bay Area?
But as far as I know T-Mobile and ATT are the only two nationwide GSM
providirs (Cingular too, but I hear it will soon be same as ATT).
In my opinion GSM is really overrated and not seriously well deployed in US,
consider CDMA providers, at least internet access would be faster
(and typically cheaper) if you're using smartphone.
