Looks like from everyone else's comments this is Tmobile. I haven't answered their calls because I was with them for 15years. My contract was up (for the gazillionith time) in July 2013. I went thru the appropriate channels to get out of the final months because there is NO COVERAGE at our lake home for the 3days out of 7 each week. Being in our 50/60's I was afraid of having a medical emergency while there and no way to get help or if one at our home base being able to contact us. We are set to get married in June and my name is not on the utilities or mortgage and Tmobile said that was the only way I could get out without penalities. Kiss my buns Tmobile. I may or may not pay your ludercious $150 early out fee. **** me off and it will be a NO!!
My wife keeps getting calls from this number. It's Tmobile desperate for the whopping $160 I owe them for my last month of service after we switched to AT&T
Do not call at this number 8015956236
Do not call at the home phone again
Get a call from them every day of the work week at the same exact time. They don't leave a message and I don't answer numbers I don't know, nor do I call them back if they don't leave message.
I too switched from CrapMobile to Spint. I havent called back, but I'm totally down for a class action. I agree with this many complaints TMobile should be held accountable at the same level as the banks that crashed this economy.. Ill update ya oh what I get when I call back..
If this is TMobile, and I know it is as well as the rest of you, why does their number still come up only as a number if they have to present themselves by law? I know they are calling because I left them for Sprint...again, another common thread...and they are also trying to charge me $ 150 for early termination fees for 3 lines...I wasn't even under a contract obligation when I left and gave no beaf about paying for last week of unused service!!! Sounds like I'm going from here to web looking for that class action suit that should be in the process with this many complaints!
trying to collect on money from tmobile... good luck getting money for nothing
I too switched carriers
I also switched from tmobile to sprint and get a call or two a day from Thus number an automated voice answers and says my mothers name (the account holder) and unjust hung up, they don't even call my mom, just me. It's annoying.
I got 2 calls from this number, returned one but did nothing with it. According to TForce.com (tmobile's facebook contact), this is a scam. I was told not to enter my phone number when requested. I switched at the end of February to a new carrier. If this is a collection call, T-Mobile is crazy. I haven't even gotten my final bill and we are 30 days out since I canceled my service with them.
I switched from tmobile to sprint they call me everyday they act like they don't have nothing else to do but call about a old bill
I left t-mobile to go to sprint , they must be callin me for the same thing!!! Lol
Ported my number from Tmobile to sprint they keep calling trying to get me back
They are desperate to get old customers back. Screw t-mobile
its tmobile and they only call to tell you your bill is past due and they have not even sent a paper bill yet so they can f off im done with them after 11 damn yrs of crap service and my bill was updated 4 days before i left and now they want 500 for canceling 1 month before contract over really uncool tmobile
Have received phone calls from this number.
Left T-mobile for better plan and much better coverage/service. TMobile needs to go out of business.
For the longest I wonder what this number, I left T-Mobile and went to Sprint... T-Mobile it was great while it lasted but yall kept F...in me over on my bills...
T-mobile must stop these constant calls
I switched from T-Mobile to Sprint but I just paid the damn bill off, they better get the f**k on!
Same thing, switched from T-Mobile to AT&T & started getting these calls...
Now I know who it is. I also switched 4rm T-Mobile 2 Sprint.
Although I too, switch from T-Mobile to AT&T just 4 days ago -- I've received NUMEROUS calls from this # and the voice mes left sounded as if it was from a debt collector, w/NO indications it originated from T-Mobile --- quite a few months prior to switching phone carriers !
This tmobile. I also switched to att.
I switch from tmobile to AT&T, now I keep getting these calls. Maybe if their customer service wasn't so bad I would have stayed with then or at least paid my bill in full.
I also switched from T Mobile to Sprint recently and get these calls twice a day. Luckily my phone has the option to force specific contacts straight to voicemail when they call.
I get a call from 201-297-4498 once a day for probably the past week. I switched from T-Mobile to Verizon so I'm sure it's T-Mobile. I haven't ever answered it, and they don't leave a message. Now that I know it's T-Mobile I will answer it and see what they want. It's incredibly annoying. Has anyone actually answered it and talked to anyone?
Interesting- I also left Tmobile recently and get these calls daily. Numerous times with no message.
I just left t mobile like about 2 weeks ago, this is the first time I am getting this call... but im kind of scared if they are going to continue to call. I kept my number because it is too much of a pain to switch numbers.. though I am about tempted to change numbers now if this is going to call me multiple times a day.
I just left T-Mobile and move to sprint and I started to get this phone calls from the same number 201-297-4498 they never answer or leave a message. And yes, you want to keep your number and they still have it. That company is terrible. Can somebody protect us from this criminals.
I also left T-Mobile and went to straight talk with my old number and have started to get these call numerous times each day with no message left !!!
My sister just switched from T-Mobile to Sprint and also gets this call many times a day, even though she doesn't owe them anything
I left t-mobile and started getting calls from this #????? WTF ! Anyone been able to solve this problem?
T-Mobile thieves sell on 500,000 customers' dataBy James Tozer and Jaya Narain11 June 2011, 12:46pmhttp://www.thisismoney.co.uk/news/article.html?in_article_id=536656A mobile phone company employee sold the details of half a million customers to a former colleague for thousands of pounds, a court heard.Darren Hames, 39, stole the 500,000 items of data from T-Mobile, where he was a highly-paid area sales manager, to David Turley, 40, who had set up his own business to cash in on the scam.Technology experts said the case, which is the first of its kind, would have led to customers being 'cold-called' with inducements to switch to rival phone companies.It is an alarming demonstration of how easily personal data can fall into the hands of criminals, they added.The men were yesterday ordered to pay back more than £70,000 as details of their crimes emerged.Hames simply copied the information - including names, addresses and phone numbers - about customers whose contracts were due to expire on to a memory stick, and handed it to Turley at a McDonald's outlet.Investigators found he had promised to supply Turley - whom he met when both worked at a T-Mobile office in the West Midlands - with details of 30,000 customers a month. Turley sold this on to a business targeting customers to switch to a rival operator.Following a two-year investigation by the Information Commissioners Office, Turley pleaded guilty to 18 breaches of the Data Protection Act by obtaining, disclosing and selling the data between 2007 and 2008. Hames admitted two counts.Yesterday at Chester Crown Court, Turley, of Birmingham, was ordered to surrender £45,000 under the Proceeds of Crime Act.Hames, of Stone in Staffordshire, was told to pay £28,700.If they fail to hand over the money within six months they go to jail for 18 months and 15 months respectively.The scandal is embarrassing for T-Mobile, which was accused of failing to protect confidential information.It also led to calls for a toughening of the law on data theft to enable those caught selling personal information - or failing to protect it from theft - to be jailed rather than simply fined.A T-Mobile spokesman said: 'We hope this serves as a significant warning to those who seek to profit from unlawfully obtaining customer data'
This number 201 297 4498 keeps calling and when i try to call back a get a person speaking indian or something saying this number cannot be reached
Me too - just left T-Mobile and took my number with me. I hate T-Mobile - they were TERRIBLE. I wouldn't be surprised if it IS them. Anyone answer when this number called? Was there anyone there?
Me too, just left T-Mobile went to Verizon and kept our old number same thing! Calls Numerous times a day and we are in Oregon. What can be done?
I have been getting this number for months now. Numerous times a day with no message. I just left TMobile, so there might be a connection!!
Received this call on 5-24-11 at 6:46 PM from Out of Area.It was a recording from T-Mobile, looking for someone not at this number. How do you tell a recording that they have a wrong number??
This number called my cell phone. Did not leave a message.
Received this call on 5-19-11 at 6:52PM from Out of Area.Left no message.Reading other posts on here, if it is T-Mobile, then they have the wrong number, as I never had T-Mobile.
I'm betting it IS T-Mobile! I *just* switched from them to Verizon. And if you want to KEEP your number, obviously T-Mobile still has it.I didn't WANT to change my number, so I kept it. I'm certain this is T-Mobile!
P.S. I wonder if there's a way to get Verizon (or whatever carrier you're with) to block this number?
This is my third call from that number and i don't have a Tmobile account
Been getting calls from this number for several weeks.....identifies self as T-Mobile & has important message for me & to return call ASAP. I called T-Mobile & they searched their records & that number 201-297-4498 does NOT belong to them. They leave voice mails all the time saying it's important to call them back. It has gotten very annoying to say the least!!! And I'm in Texas.
THIS PHONE NUMBER CALLS BUT FAILS TO LEAVE A MESSAGE REGARDING PURPOSE OF CALL.
they keep calling me today,, there be mistakes on the bill and i ported the numbers out and ditched them, so they are prolly looking for the remander balance.
Finally after the fourth call of today, probably the 15th call total, I was given some computer generated options. The last option was to inform them that they had the wrong number. So just answer most of the calls and eventually you will get the automated menu. At least they identify themselves when the automatic response works correctly. Just like the others said it is T-Mobile.
Never had a t-mobile acct. either. but we have just recently added the line that they are calling to our verizon acct. so maybe whoever had the # before us owed t-mobile. i was able to get an automated system and selected to be placed on their 'do not call' list, but the only problem was that it took numerous attempts, after receiving numerous calls, before I could get any kind of automated system, live person, options, etc.
I got several calls from 201-297-4498 'Closter NJ' . I did not pick up. I do not want them to call me anymore!
