04/05/2011 Premium Text Messaging Complaints

People are finding charges on their mobile phone bills that they say were not authorized, including mystery text services that appear out of nowhere and charge for content that people believed was free.

I was the victim of a scam recently in which $9.99 was charged to my cellular account for so-called inspiration text messages for which I definitely did not sign up. The phone, a BlackBerry on Sprint, is a second phone kept around for emergencies only and had not been used for about a month before the text messages were noticed.

I halted the service by texting STOP and called the company listed as the provider, InspiraCell, to find out why they had signed me up for this inane service. I could not get through. I next called Sprint to ask them about it. A customer support representative put a block on the service, removed text message service entirely from the phone and told me I would be able to get the charge removed from my bill when the statement came, which I was. However, he was not able to tell me how the charge got authorized for my account.

In the last couple of years, the practice of charity in the face of disaster has changed.

Since last Friday, the American Red Cross has received nearly $1.6 million in text donations for Japan. But there are downsides to text donations that you should think about carefully before you hit SEND.

Technology has evolved to help us keep in touch electronically during our busy lives with the aid of the internet, social networking websites and of course with the mobile phone. However for most of aging generations, technology is less of a help to communicate as the speed of technological advancements has left the elderly by the way side. The elderly could take advantage of electronic communications but instead have not been able to keep up with the communication revolution.

The elderly find new technologies difficult to learn and navigate, the new terminology sounds baffling and they may struggle to understand the concepts of messaging formats. Most old people wont go to lessons to learn how to use computers, or to teach themselves how to use mobile phone and prefer to stick to old fashioned methods of communication.
