So now it finally happened to me. What i have been reading about many times, how cellphone companies charge for stuff you never subscribed to nor intended to buy, or were aware that you bought.

I have Cingular, and recently (2-3 months ) i got a new line, a gift for my mom. And now a sneaky 7 dollar subscription came on my bill.

Of course it extremely p**sed me off, since this would be the second incident regarding downloadable content charges in my new line. It was ridiculus since from day one, i had any web access or capability be blocked from my account, yet i still was charged for kilobits being downloaded to my cellphone.

This just topped it, supossly my mom went in somehow bypassing the networks ruling that block any web browsing of any kind, and subscribed herself to a GoTv Alt Rock... she doesn't even have text messaging, so thats down too, but another chance is open, maybe she went into the website, found some " unknown third party subscriber" and subscribed herself to this service for 6.38 a month.

So i called Cingular, in 3 minutes i had the refund and the " subscription canceled "

Ofcourse i could not get any details on who the provider of this service was, or how and when i subscribed ( bill date to my acc was available )

I hope the new regulations to all this crap come up soon and give us customers, some backup.

Other than that,

Double Check that bill!!! and don't let those extra fees sneak by.

You bring up a very good point. I've seen a few people here in the local with similar problems, not only with cellphone bills but Cable, Internet, and other similar services. It's always good to go over these once in a while and make sure they have removed anything you might have canceled, or look for any mistakes.

I think there was a spam post which bumped it up, and it was deleted by a mod.
