Until yesterday, I was a Premium Member and paid the monthly fee directly to Spotify via Credit Card.
As a new customer with my Mobile Phone Company - Hutchison Drei Austria GmbH - www.drei.at - they offered me 6 month free Premium and more importantly if I use Spotify and pay via my monthly phone bill - all the mobile downloads will be included, without any limit.
For this reason I carefully followed their detailed description on their webpage on how to change a current Premium account so that it runs via Drei.at. However, it did not work and I ended up with my cancelled Premium account, now on Free, AND their system saying that I succesfully signed up for Premium!
What happened next was like I expected: My phone company says "Everything correct with us, WE CANNOT HELP YOU. This is Spotify's business. It's their service"
And Spotify says the same, I think, because I cannot find a way to contact someone for troubleshooting and in this forum I found a similar case...
If you get an automated reply email telling you to check the Knowledgebase or the Spotify Community, you need to reply back to it, even if it's from a no-reply address. Spotify Support usually replies within 24-48 hours :).
