Q: Wireless providers suspending service then charging you for a dead horse

Contract Law 101 pacifically states to have a binding contract you must have;

2 people who both have something of value & are willing to exchange it Top 2 wireless providers that require a contract, if your monthly payment is not met your service is suspended/shut off. BUT continue to bill you every month for the data that you are not being provided. This is a perfect example of breech of contract,...forcing people to pay for a DEAD HORSE is what IT IS...Why is this allowed? Or how have they got around it? & how can their loop hole be omitted/sealed? Is it possible to do a CLASS ACTION law suit?

A: One party’s breach of a contract (for example, the failure to pay for a service) relieves the other party of its duty to perform (provide further service) until the breaching party cures his default (pays his bill). Again, basic contract law 101.
