Re: does anybody know about a samsung s5230 unlocked
Feb 13, 2010, 6:54 AM

Why are there people like you in the world? There is nothing special about the Samsung S5230 so why did you go out of your way to purchase it? T-Mobile has several really nice devices. But good luck with the MMS settings

iPhone staying with AT&T (in the USA)

http://www.tuaw.com/2010/02/09/analysts-see-i phone-remaining-exclusive-to-atandt-spurring- sales/ Those among you hoping for an impending dissolution of AT&T's exclusive hold (or testicular constriction, if you will) on the iPhone may want to sit down before reading the following words. According to AppleInsider, two separate analysts are making similar predictions that the iPhone will remain shackled to AT&T's network, offering the iPad-AT&T partnership as evidence. It's ok, I wept too. Vijay Jayant, of Barclays Capital, was quoted as saying "(The) launch of Apple's iPad on AT&T's network is ...

No Sprint can do text messaging fine, its dropped calls they have a problem with, lol.

Cisco owns Linksys. The phone was Linksys branded. How do I know this? I owned one, lol.

They took the name iPhone when Linksys already had an iPhone trademark on their skype portable phone.

Yea how is 10 mbps 10x the speed of 14 mbps? On top of that LTE is true 4G where wimax is just a hormone induced 3G signal.

HSDPA 3G networks have a max speed of 14mbps. Where as wimax is working at 2-3 mbps. Explain yourself.

They don't have 4G coverage. Wimax is 3.5G you fail.

Recommend buying your phone outright. I think the data is only required on the device to recieve the discount.

The only problem with this phone is going to be the price. That and which carrier is it for? Sprint? That alone makes it not worth anyone's time.

1.) Yes you can bring your own unlocked device to any network. However all services of the device might not work (Blackberry Storm's have issues on AT&T network) 2.) Wifi will not work without a data plan 3.) My personal favorite is always Blackberries but I like Android a lot.

Re: Canceling service to become new user?
Jan 23, 2010, 7:49 AM
in the General forum

Being an AT&T rep I can answer your question: A couple reasons your phone might not be upgradable eventhough you have had it for 3 yrs... 1.) Missing payments extends your contract for 90 days only if service is shut off. 2.) Someone in your family plan could have used your upgrade to get new equipment. 3.) If you ever added international data plan it extends your contract one year. Now if the account is not under your name you will have to get ...

I love customers who want everything for nothing

I am sorry but California judges must be retarded. The customer got a special deal on the phone if they promised to stay with the company for two years. They signed a contract. I feel that if a customer wants to wine about an ETF then fine they don't have to pay the $175 but I should be able to recollect the $400 I took off the phone to begin with.

You are older than the age of 4 right? Then when you see an adult on the phone go make yourself busy until they are off. You are complaining about nothing.

Re: NEW VZW DATA POLICY
Jan 19, 2010, 6:47 AM
in the Shop Talk forum

Every line up of phones that come out, include 70% smartphones, 20% texting phones, 10% plain jane phones. Sorry to say but due to idiots and their wonderful misuse of pay per use on their smartphones Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile all require data plans on smartphones.

Re: I CAN NOT SET UP YOUR UNLOCKED PHONES
Jan 18, 2010, 7:18 AM
in the Shop Talk forum

It won't work. Our AT&T systems will not recongize the Storm as a Blackberry. Therefore if it can't recongize it then the BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) system won't connect.

Re: Garmin Nuvifone G60 Unlock Code
Jan 18, 2010, 7:16 AM

AT&T or Garmin Reason why is because it's an AT&T exclusive phone. The problem you might run into is that usually exclusive phones are allowed to be unlocked but who knows.

I CAN NOT SET UP YOUR UNLOCKED PHONES
Jan 15, 2010, 6:40 AM
in the Shop Talk forum

I get multiple calls a day from people with unlocked Blackberry Storms, or those cheap Chinese iPhone knockoffs. Regardless as to which phone it is, unless it states AT&T on the device we can not get our system to recongize it, period. So your Storm will not work with our help. Can you get a Storm to work on the AT&T network, sure, can I help you in doing so. Nope. Thanks, any billing reps who transfer these calls to ...

If a customer calls in with a Blackberry I am an endless source of help. However if that same customer calls in with an iPhone, Windows Mobile Device, Nokia Smartphone, or a Palm phone I can still help only if the customer is smart enough to navigate their phone.

I have seen you on this site for months meaning that I think you have had you job for months. Therefore you do not need cheat sheets and longer unless you are bad at your job.

Re: BEST BUY!

in the Shop Talk forum

The extra $30 charge is probably the new data plan for their new data phone. However just because you don't get the sale doesn't mean you have any right to treat a customer like crap. You still work for the same company, you just didn't get the sale because of your bad prices. Explain to me why a customer would want to spend $200 extra on their phone just so you can help them?

Re: BEST BUY!

Best Buy does have some pretty sweet prices: Example: Best Buy HTC Pure - $0.00 after instant rebate Samsung Jack - $0.99 after instant rebate Blackberry Bold 2 (9700) - $99.99 after instant rebate AT&T.com HTC Pure - $149.99 after $50 mail in rebate Samsung Jack - $0.00 after $100 mail in rebate Blackberry Bold 2 (0700) - $99.99 after $100 mail in rebate So I don't know about you but I would love to open a new line of service and pay nothing then have to pay $200 ...

Pineapple Express was a stoner silly joke movie. Where Observe and Report was a way darker comedy that also showed the slow twisted decline of an otherwise perfectly nice person.

Dec 30, 2009, 2:58 PM

Sadly by refusing a responsible request because a customer is upset can and most likely will get you fired. And not like that cusotmer cares if you help them or not, they are using you to release some pent up frustration. If you refuse their requests and they call back they will get someone and be more level headed.

You must only look farts and poop jokes because Observe and Report was actually really well done. However I would agree its not for everyone since it was a dark (very dark) comedy that wasn't marketed as such.

Shot up heroin and stole stuff (Observe and Report was a way better movie)

Verizon makes a lot of money in other ways than the ETF
Dec 25, 2009, 7:28 AM
in the Article: FCC Not Satisfied with Verizon's ETF Explanation forum

They make mad bank on the crappy accessories they sell in the store. They sell cheap horrible bluetooth headsets for $30, and crappy generic cases for $25. Believe you and me those accessories that your wonderful company sells does not cost them more than a buck or two. On top of that your company also does outsource its telephone help. Because I have called for billing and tech support before and the gentleman who I was talking ...

Sorry to say but the people who pay your checks are these people and your boss. Who I am sure will not let you hang up on them.

App Error is as easy as removing an app and reinstalling it. However if it is a JVM error or the customer is getting a cycling restart request you can help them format the phone. Its in device tutorials.

As soon as customer cares hears the word blackberry they transfer the call. It could be the following question, "How much is the new Blackberry Bold 9700?" Ummmm let me get you to BDS.

The skinny is that if the customer willingly signs a contract which clearly states the processing fees on it then they are responsible for it. Its like AT&T giving them an iPhone for $199 and the first time they have a late bill we get nervious about how good of a customer they will be and we ask for the $400 we took off the phone.

Dec 19, 2009, 6:48 AM
in the Shop Talk forum

Somehow I doubt there is a single customer who would want to pay $60/month for a service that will be spotty and slow. Also a 2G aircard is not leaps and bounds faster than a 56k dial up connection. You sound like a great salesman, because you are slimey and could care less about the customers you are supposedly helping.

This is funny because I tell most of customers looking to upgrade (after I have performed technical troubleshooting) to get their phone through Best Buy, or letstalk.com because the corp stores are a huge rip-off

Exactly, the fact a new article of child porn (a picture or video of a nude minor) is produced and could easily be made available to the internet makes it a serious crime. Two 14 yrs olds sharing nude pictures is still and will always be a punsihable crime if caught.

Sorry but when you're in school the school reserves the right to search your locker, your backpack, and your phone if they confinscate it from you. And yes naked pictures of a 14 yr old are still child porn. The offender being near the same age doesn't matter.
