    The mobile phone customer service representative always say one thing to me.

    1)The mobile phone customer service representative always say one thing to me and at the end of the month there will be something different on my bill.

    2) The mobile phone customer service representative always tell me something that is inconsistent. He tells me something now and at the end of the month things will turn out to be different on my bill.

    * Can I phrase these sentences in such a way?

    First, look at your use of the verbs "say" and "tell" in both examples. Check whether you have them correct. As a clue, there are two incorrect usages and one correct.
