This is silly. I get a Clear Wire modem from the place at the mall. The guy tells me we are right on the edge of service, so is unsure if it will work or not. So I ask him about returning it if it doesnt work. He says it's easy, I cant return it to the place I got it, but can call a number of theirs. They will cancel it and send me a return shipping label. Doesnt tell me about any fees.
Something like two days later, I call. The guy says he cant cancel this order, something about where I got it from. I didnt delve into that because cell signal is spotty here. He tells me I can find someone else who would like the service and I can do a change of responsibility. So I say fine, maybe I can do that. Being busy, I dont call back within the 14 days. I get a call from them today. I state I cant use the service, how I got the modem, and what I was told when I called.
The lady claims I am breaking a two year agreement and that I would owe $50 plus a $46 restocking fee. Well I had already called, they could see I couldnt use the service. So they agree to waive the $50 but at time of restocking I will owe $46. Sounds kinda ripoff to me.
On the other hand, being what I do for a living, I know I should have actually READ the agreement and I didnt. So I guess I'm kinda stuck, even though I "did" try to cancel within the 14 day period and they had that on record as well, although I actually thought is was 30 days. It seems that as such, they wouldnt charge me anything.
