Joshua, the guy that sold me three iPhone 3G’s was great – from the start to the finish. I had his personal cell phone number and woke him bright and early this morning – I couldn’t have asked for or expected more from him. Great Sales experience.
ATT Activation? They could do better. First off, they had me validate my contract on each phone – individually, even though I bought them all (three of them) at the same time. Even though I added them to the ATT “Family Plan”.
I never signed a contract. I “agreed” to some poorly defined “contract” over the phone (assuming it was actually me pushing the buttons – NOT admitting that it actually was – it could have been anyone) – there were few details, and NONE of those details included anything about pricing.
I wonder how legally binding his entire thing is – I think a decent lawyer could argue that I don’t have a contract at all, since it was NEVER disclosed to me what my monthly costs would be, when the bill is due – basically, there were no Terms of Service discussed at all
Can I be legally bound to a contract that wasn’t fully disclosed?.
So do I have a contract with ATT at all? I think I *might* – but I don’t know what the terms of the contract are – which probably invalidates it.
I do have three iPhones – which honestly, I like. Not knowing what they are really going to cost me? NOT liking that so much.
So listen up, ATT – fully disclose the costs and have me agree to THOSE costs – not some “you also agree to Apple’s Terms of Service” BS on a telephone (details of which were also not disclosed to me).
I figure I just got three iPhones contract free since the terms were not defined, and I signed nothing. I am sure Apple and ATT will think differently. But they cannot produce a contract with my name on it – a least not one I have signed.
I don’t get this model at all. Do they really think that I will bound by a set of terms that didn’t include any cost info? If so, I think they are making a mistake. This was a very “fuzzy” transaction at best.
