Nalosin :

Hello

Nalosin :

I can try to help on your question

Nalosin :

Are you referring on Agreements that you accept on your phone?

Customer:

agreement, commitment, contract, just differemt words with the same meaning

Nalosin :

If you press the accept button, that's the same like you sign it

Customer:

sign in??

Nalosin :

No, if you get agreement, contract or anything else and you have to read it and accept it on your phone, that the same like you sign that agreement, contract or whatever you get on the screen. That means that you agree with the terms and conditions set in the text

Customer:

i assume that applies to verbal agreements also?

Nalosin :

Yes, if you was read something over the phone and you accept it,

Nalosin :

it's the same thing

Nalosin :

You asked this question in Cell Phone section

Yes, those contracts are legal and binding on the customer (and the cell phone company). By accepting the phone and activating the service, the person agrees to abide by the terms of service - even if he did not read them or sign the contract.
