What can be done about collection agencies harassing?

Asked over 1 year ago - Elkhart, IN

I am receiving a minimum of three calls a day from T-mobile's collection agency. They are trying to charge me a disconnect fee for stopping service 7 days before the end of the contract. They were unable to provide service in the area I was in. It wasn't because I moved, the service just all of the sudden quit working one day. I have e-mails and wrote operator numbers and dates each time I talked to them while trying to figure out how to fix the problem. It was because their tower just quit working. I was with out a phone for over two weeks when I decided to switch my number to another carrier.
