Since the loss of the discount for auto pay on a credit card, I have been paying the “old school” way by mailing a check.  The first month was fine (AUG I think).  The second month, TMobile said my check bounced.  My bank has no record of it and TMobile won’t furnish any further details.  The month after that, I was no longer getting bills in the mail from TMobile.  Then they cut my service.  My wife could, thankfully, text me as I was out of town on business and using a company phone.  We realized we never got the bill.  Contacted TMobile and they reduced some of the fees and re-instated the phone service.  The next month the check cleared one day after the due date.  I have to believe TMobile or their service that processes their payments “sat” on it over the weekend because it cleared on a Monday.  We have not received a bill in the mail once since then. Last month I checked my account and it was set for  paper billing and charges for late payment (we didn’t make one because we didn’t get a bill)  The account log showed where I signed up for paperless billing even though my account showed I was suppose to get paper billing.  I have written two letters because no one on the phone can help with this problem.  I thought  I was going to get some help with the first one, but all we did was play phone tag.  This week, I find that my bill is due again, the one they  didn’t send.  They sent me an email though.  They are going to give me “VIP treatment just for being a loyal customer”.  I don’t need any extras until you can handle the basics.

Has anyone else had this problem and is there anyway to resolve it other than changing carriers?

Stories like this is why I opted to keep paying with my ccd and losing the $10 autopay discount. You can't depend on USPS for on time delivery.


USPS didn’t say I bounced a check that never went to the bank.  USPS delivers bills most of the time.  This is too consistent to be a SNAFU from USPS (as much as I would love to blame them).
