Include the date at the top of the letter, both for the company's records and your own personal records.

For example, if you are requesting that your services be canceled or downsized as of a certain date, and the company does not process your request in a timely manner, you have grounds for non-payment because you have a copy of your dated request. For example, if you are moving or changing your phone number, state in the letter, "this was my old address" or "this was my old phone number." The company may need this information to pull up your account in order to update your records. State in the letter, "this is my new address" or "this is my new phone number." You may want to put your updated information in bold print or a larger font so that the person processing your request will have an easy time locating the information. Ask that you be sent a letter in return notifying you that your information has been updated.
