I switched from Sprint to AT&T back in Nov 2016 because I didn’t have good service and would have a lot of dropped calls. I spoke to Erjaia from customer service on Nov 10, 2016 and he told me what credits I would get back on each phone once I returned my phones which was $81.71, which I had no problem of paying and he would send me a return kit. After several phone calls to Sprints customer service letting them know I never received the kit they kept on saying they will send it to me. Several months later I end up getting a phone call from collections telling me I owe $1260.00 and I let her know the situation and she said that was not her problem and that was my problem and I needed to pay up! Is there anything I can do to dispute this off my credit report? Please help!

I still have phones and I was told I could not take them to the sprint store they would have to be mailed back through the return kit they were suppose to send me. I was also told from collections that my phones were not worth anything anymore.

At the top of this page there is a link to Elliott's Company Contacts database.
Please read the instructions on the first page before proceeding to locate the contacts for Sprint.

Some Writing Practices for You to Consider ...
  • Begin by thanking them for their time and consideration. This sets a respectful tone for the message to follow.
  • Present the relevant facts in an orderly fashion. The person to whom you will be escalating this will want to parse the details quickly. I like this format:
Month Day
Time of day (if multiple entries for that day) followed by the shortest possible description of events​
  • Avoid criticism and "how to run your business" statements. These are rarely successful and often harmful.
  • Include your desired resolution. Bear in mind that excessive requests can turn them off to your cause.
