I have an issue with a telecom contract and I was wondering if anyone has dealt with anything like this before. My old telecom company has an "evergreen contract," this is a clause in my contract that automatically renews every year. So when my initial 4 year contract was ending I found a much better deal and switched providers. About 15 days later I recieved a bill from my old provider for my next years service in whole. When I called about this I was told I had an "evergreen contract" and it automatically renewed but since I switched providers I was in breach of contract. I have disputed this claim and they have denied it. They are starting in with some pretty good threats. Out of principal I can not bring myself to write this $400 check for a service they did not provide. Any suggestions?
