    I wanted to cancel my contract with Bell. The high pressure sales man talked me into a phone that I did not need it is too much for me. I am a senior and never text or browse the enternet. But I can’t cancel because it would cost me over $400.00. I only asked for a cell phone that would e-mail so I could keep in touch with my hubby who is deaf.Instead I am stuck with a big bill every month for someting I don’t use.
