Does T-Mobile provide service to the after-life?

Despite having passed away this past summer from a motorcycle accident, Tina Enstad continues to get billed every month from T-Moble even though the carrier is said to already know about her death; the surviving parents are seeking to get the service turned off...

Lol, these heartless, spineless money grubbing fat cats can care less if you die....early termination fees pay up or we will take you for everything you have!!! Actually unless they are some sort of medical institution I doubt they could attempt to do that sort of thing, had a friend of mine have hospital put a stop on his bank account and garnish wages, incredible didn't know that was legal. Makes you not want to get sick or need medical attention...EVER!

This isn't about greed. It's about people being lazy. They have computers doing all of that stuff and don't actually look at what is really going on. Once they realized what was going on, they fixed it. Still lame of T-Mobile for not paying attention earlier, but it's not as bad as earlier commenters have opinionated.

You can argue that but they didn't waive the fee and everything until AFTER it was becoming aware to others.

I agree this isn't greed, greed would be if T-Mobile would still be trying to collect after that fact that they found out that she was still getting billed.

This is what happens when companies doing business in America outsource their calling centers to foreign countries, i.e., India, Pakistan, Singapore, Santo Domingo, Malaysia, etc. I know for a fact that T-Mobile even has Customer Service Calling Centers in Central America as, I was with my brother when he reached a rep' in, if I remember correctly, Costa Rica earlier this year; he's got T-Mobile. And, by the way, he's never spoken to a T-Mo' rep' on the mainland.

U.S. Cellular Carriers should be banned from having calling centers in foreign countries: PERIOD!

Always remember to cancel all your accounts before you die

And this just a few hours after an article was posted about how bill-shock was a thing of the past... I know it's not what one would consider your average bill-shock, but still, it's a shocking bill.
