I purchased a IPhone on 8/29/16 from Best Buys in

I purchased a IPhone on 8/29/16 from Best Buys in Torrance,Ca The employee Alec step my phone up for me as I told him I had Sprint PCS already but, my Samsung S6 Galaxy Edge had stop functioning for me & I had taken out the protection plan with Sansung but, couldn't make a claim yet due to my phone would no longer allow a pug in charger. could only charger with the wireless one so I was unable to back my photos etc, up I would end of losing everything. So I was going to add the second line on for $30.00 month but, have them transfer my existing number I've had for years on my I Phone and put the new number on my existing phone which was the Samsung s6 galaxy Edge. He sit it up. paid $799.99 plus tax 72.00 total 871.99. I owed the phone ..This was my plan and only plan intended.Problem after I left Alec accidentally Put Verizon SIM card in was suppose to be Sprint SIM card so phone won't work . Didn't realize this at the time took it to sprint in San Pedro show them the phone told them just I told you. Manager Keith Broadnax said no problem ..more to the story but, sold me the I Phone S6 for $649.00 told me had to pay $103 dollars for activation etc now but had to wait come back in couple of days and he would personally call in and pay my I Phone for me just give him the card information .. More happened in between explain later. So on 9/1/16 went back into the store waited abut 20 minutes because he was helping a customer then Chauncey Jordan came in and said oh! Your here to pay your phone off ..yes I replied ..ok we have to wait for Keith ok .. Waited approx another 12 min finally Keith said what's your name and number again I told him and said it for my IPhone your where going place the call personally for me so it would be paid off..he replied yes I remember .. Gave him my Discover Card . It gave it back ,,..said that was it.. More happened in betweenJust found out yesterday that He Keith intentionally " Didn't pay my I Phone off.He went & did a Early Termination on My Samsung S6 Galaxy Edge for $577.77When my contract is up in Nov of 2017 ..I still won't even owe this phone if I want to owe it there will be additional $210.00 to pay. This was suppose done . They told me this can't be undone the way he did it. Prior to finding this out about the termination early .. Sprint had me go to the corporate store in Lomita to have them help me with this problem. Originally they said he paid the Samsung off and not the I Phone. Which I was highly upset and wanted undone and made right. Unfortunately the corporate store tried but was unable to because it was a third-party so the gentleman told me I had to go back to the San Pedro store and have him six so I did when I got there Keith was there I told him I was upset you don't remember originally I purchased the iPhone at Best Buy but they had put accidentally a Verizon Sim card in so I took that phone back and purchase the phone from you am I was told from the corporate office to come back and have you fix it I can reply when you mean you can't.He refused to also I told him I wanted my receipts from August 29 also from September 1 they never gave me what do you mean you can't I can't. He had this nice girl who here was that day print them out. I was so upset I was in a car accident from this ordeal in the parking lot. Now my insurance going to go up. Can't get District manager to return my calls .. Only thing is I called Discover this morning help me out.I need legal advice please

I was injured in a car accident in which i was hit by a drunk driver (i was not at fault), im being represented by a lawyer but im concerned my auto insurance will increase even though the accident was not my fault. The driver also hit and run, i dont yet know if he is insured. How can i find out if my insurance premium will go up? And if it would is it too late to drop the lawsuit/retract injury claim bc i dont want a premium increase that i cant afford.

I was in a car accident which left me disabled. I had to

I was in a car accident which left me disabled. I had to leave my job and was on short-term and long-term disability through my job for over 1 year. I also had a personal injury case pending on this accident, my disability insurance company asked me to apply for ssi disability benefits which I did. My case settled my attorney negotiated a reduced payback amount for the disability benefits I received. The insurance company recived a check from my lawyer. I was well enough to go back to work after several surgeries. I am possibly going to receive retro ssi benefits for the period of time that I was not working. My question is since my repayment of my disability was already negotiated and paid, do I get to keep the retro ssi payment
