Sprint Informative - Accepting Long Distance Collect Calls
I live in the US and earlier this year I accepted two collect calls from my daughter up in Toronto, Canada. Unknown to me these calls cost a whopping $3.50 a minute. So I got hit with a $172.00 US phone bill. I complained, but they said Sprint doesn't regulate their calls so they charge WHATEVER THEY DARN WELL WANT TO, and they don't tell you this before you accept the charges, that would be too logical. Needless to say I don't accept any collect calls from Canada which is unfortunate since my daughter is disabled and it's about the only way she can call me. I am on a small pension and can't afford to speak to her for this price. If that wasn't bad enough the phone company cut off my long distance calling abilities and I can't use any of those 1010987 or 1010220 numbers, they won't let me... It's a "rip-off" plain and simple and Sprint Canada should get their act together and stop gouging people.
