I was recently helped out with getting a US number and phone. I was dinged with a ridiculous amount because the person that had my number prior was getting texts and calls. I was overseas and was charged what could be considered extortion rates. 580. for nothing that was my doing other than not aware of what was happening with my new phone and number that went automatically to a travel pass each time someone called or texted. My number was not shared yet I only got the thing but it has been a VERY expensive lesson and I want out. I will pay the phone off and I just need out of this racket.
