Have you ever not paid a phone bill?

A friend of mine seems to always have a new cell phone number. And i asked her what happens does someone get her number or something. And she said sometimes that is why but one time she got verizon, and it had two lines on it. And when she got her first bill it was like $300.00. She said they charges for like a month inadvance plus another month and activation fees and such. So she didn't pay it and they eventually just turned it off with an outstanding balance ot like $800.00. Anyways she went to cingular then. And has been withthem for a while because it has been a few months since her number changed. But she was complaining how she wished she could go back to verizon for better coverage but can't pay the balance.I told her i would just stay because she is prob still under contract with at&t and the same thing would happen. She just groaned and we kind of left it at that. i mean what is she thinking?

  • Sounds like my exhusband. Very irresponsible, people don't usually do this in just one area of their life. He has this problem with electric companies, name it. He just never takes care of anything in the past, just walks away from it and then thinks the world is out to get him because life is so hard.

  • I've never NOT paid a bill. My neighbor disconnected her land-line and has had multiple cell numbers because she seldom pays her bills. She will pay her cell phone bill (cuz she is on it all the time) until the other bill collectors get the number, then she will change it.
