I'm going to need some help on this one. Ok, so here it goes, Today I tried to place a call on my cell phone, then up came a recording saying they were transfering me to T-Mobile. My dad had to speak since he's the main account holder. The rep comes on and says the account has been suspended for "Recent High Activity". She says that I have past my minutes and now owe about $596. She said I had a $29.99 plan, which isnt true, I have a $39.99, which I tried to tell her, but it's like she wouldn't even listen to me. She would pause, as if to hear what I was saying, then continue to say that I have the $29.99 plan. Also whenever I tried to ask to speak to a supervisor, it's as if she was reluctant to transfer me, saying that "You're already at the highest department for financial services" and I said "ok, well I want the highest person in charge of that department." to which she told me "No matter how high, there's no one that can credit the account for the fees." I'm also the type of person that only uses my cellphone when I NEED to, other then that I'm always on a land-line, so me crossing over my minutes is outrageous. My dad also asked her if we chose not to pay, what would happen. She said it would have negative effects on the account holder's credit. We've gone through some sort of mess up they've created just about every month, but this one is the biggest. The previous rep we spoke to last month made a mistake in his/her notes about our plan, so now we're getting the consequences, and since the lady said "we go by the notes", she basically was implying that everything I was saying was B.S. She wouldn't work with me as to find out what had happened, it was basically Guilty until proven Guilty, except I didn't even need to be proved, I was automatically found guilty... She said all the over-drafts were correct, and theres nothing we could do but pay. Now I have no idea how to deal with this, I tried calling back in hopes of receiving a different rep, but got the same one. I dont feel we should be punished for one of their mistakes, especially a mistake thats going to cost my family almost $600 that we don't have. Any help is appreciated, thanks guys.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
