Tim Mobile Phone registered in someone else's name by shop
wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem. Recently bought a new Tim SIM card and was charged 15e for the card plus 20e for credit. When I attempted to register my details on the Tim website in order to be able to make online topups etc I found the phone number is already registered in the name of someone else. An italian friend telephoned Tim yesterday and was told that they have had several similar complaints regarding SIMs purchased from the same shop. I cannot think of any reason it would be beneficial to them to register the phone in someone else's name and at this point I don't know if it is carelessness on the part of the shop. This also happened to a Sim I purchased from the same place 3 years ago, at the time I put it down to a mistake and relied on purchasing topups from Tabbachi etc. Has this happened to anyone else? Any ideas as to if there is any benefit to the shop to do this?
