    I have3 lines mine and 2 roomates.one of them had been ordering new phonesthinking they can just pay monthly for all of them(Blackberry 9700 White and 2 HTC HD2's)$1500+ :eek:. Well I onlyhad $500 EIP, so I have a phone bill over $1000. we got into fight she left and I'm stuck with a big bill and shehas all phones.(I think she selling them) Tmobile is trying to work with me but I have to pay the remainder by the end of the month via payment arrangement or service off. I can't afford it. but I need a phone. Can I sign up with like Verizon or sprint for a new contract? or is my bill with Tmobile gonna cause me problems getting service with other carriers?

    Just treat it like a divorce. Have TMO take the line off your account, and give them the person's address as the responsible party for the line.

    Depends on who has authority to make changes to the account. If both do that's no problem. If one or the other but not both do that does present a problem.

    thanks guys for quick response....:)
    1. Her address was "Our" address. I know she is staying with her family or her brother in San Diego, but I don't know for sure if she's with them.
    2.The account is under my name the have no access to account besides basic support.:O

    Ok I'm stuck with it, I have no problem paying Tmo....it was actually my responsibility. But do u guys think I will be able to sign up with another carrier? tmo bill is likely to go to collections and my service cancelled.....Will I be stuck with just prepaid? :mad:Or will @I be able to like say sign with sprint?att? thanks guys my friend was right....this is the place to Lyon for quick help and from veteran techys

    I would work with TMO and try to get a transfer of responsibility for the effected lines. This way your credit is not effected.

    a transfer of responsibility won't help now because the phones have already billed, and the balance does not transfer, my suggestion is to sell the phones on the open market to recover some of the money and use that to pay your bill

    AFAIK, the OP doesn't have the phones, the (hopefully former) roommate does.
