How the Penalty Fees Work
There are no fees listed in the details for Idea cell phone service. We can assume the company charges similar fees to other cellular phone companies, including:
- Early termination fee
- Late payment fee
- Reconnection fee
Most often, penalty fees are assessed when a customer does not make a payment by the due date. Customers should contact customer service immediately if they are unable to make a payment. If the account goes seriously past due, the cell phone may be disconnected and an early termination fee assessed.
I Can’t Make a Payment
If you find you can’t make your Idea payment by the due date, contact customer service from your cell phone at 12345. Customers can also seek service from local Idea stores in terms of late payment options and payment plans. Typically, cellular phone companies will work with customers to make payment plan arrangements, but current charges will be added to the payment plan in future months. Reducing service limits, available minutes or cancelling smartphone services may reduce your monthly bill. Idea also offers a prepaid cellular phone option for customers who want to control cell phone expenses.
Will They Work With Me to Pay My Bill?
