Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If Sprint has not paid the bill, your first step is to contact Sprint and inform them that they are in breach of contract and discuss with them paying for the bill. If the customer service rep gives you a hard time, then insist on speaking to the supervisor (since the supervisors have more authority). If Sprint still refuses, since this was a contract offer between you and Sprint, the next step is you can file suit in small claims court against Sprint for the cost of the fees plus any damage to your credit report you are suffering as a result of their failure to pay the fees.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
