Boost Mobile Complaint - Fraudulent selling tactics
I went with Boost Mobile one month ago and was happy until I added international calling to my account. My wife is currently in Canada with her mother who has cancer. I called 611 on my boost Mirro phone and was told that if I wanted to add calls to and from Canada to my account it would be $10 per month more. I asked specifically if there was a per-minute charge on either incomming or outgoing calls and was told "NO". I asked the person helping me to make sure. I heard him ask someone nearby who also said there were no per minute charges.
Today I tried calling Canada and a message told me I didn't have enough money in my account to allow the call. I called 611 and after a myriad of departments finally got a human being who told me that there is a 10c per minute charge on international calls. This is misleading and lying to customers who only want to be treated fairly.
I have since found another cell provider "Metro PCS" which offers Canada and Mexico and NO per-minute charges at all.
GUESS WHO I AM SWITCHING TO !!
