I see multiple stores having similar issues in this topic.

The company is changing the focus.. its not as customer focused as it was before. They are pushing more for sales and growth. Getting a little more hardcore around here. Its hard to get used to after my almost 10 years here. Seems they expect a complete 180 within weeks after cramming all the other years of customer focus down my throat.

How about, please elaborate. People may or may not agree with you, but, what is it that you are specifically wanting to discuss about their cult status?

Ok, I've worked here about 8 years now.. and I check back whenever I can. And its funny you mentioned this, but, a couple weekends ago. I sold a used merge and used mez to a prepaid account and worked just fine. When activating the phones for customers, there isn't any codes that will restrict a certain model of phone. Hell, even a Premium internet code will work to activate an Android powered phone.

YES. If you buy the phone at retail price?? The $600, or $300 used. Or if you get it cheaper on your own. Sure you can activate it on a prepaid line. You just won't get the full 5 gig plan. You'll only be able to get the 2 gig pre paid plan. But, you do HAVE to have data on the phone one way or another. Currently there is 1 Android ...

You're crying about it right now. What does that say. Don't be standing on your soap box telling us to stop complaining when you're complaining about it. Who made you the forum police. And you know what happens if you don't let out some steam now and then. You get constipated. So when you get your ass handed to you by a customer all you do is sit there and smile. Sure, you ...

Yup, the voicemail stuff is pain in the ass. Yeah yeah, I know some people just need help. But, the problem is THEY DON'T TRY. I have a line to the door of people that say the same thing.. "i got the message/letter......" and i wanna say.. didn't you JUST hear me with the person standing right in front of you. Or, "i got this letter in the mail. What is is" My response has ...

We can block the Easy Edge apps from coming up on they phone. But, if you're asking more can you get the Tritan WITHOUT the fees. No. The phone is a premium device and along with the Delve we don't sell it without. The internet, email, and navigation is all included with the $20 / month for the service. But, you can't have the phone without the service.

Sorry.. that was pretty ****ty of me. But, i wasn't doubting the fact that we'll get the phone. Just that USC in my opinion, has a habit of not being very consistant with their phone testing and releasing. I mean look at what they did with the 440, 265, and Hint.?? they recalled them. In my area. We had NO problems with those phones. But, look how they made us suffer with ...

Nope not in upper management. And yeah, i hope we get some different BB phones in also. The curve and flip pearl isn't much to choose from.

Ok, been doing the sales thing for a long while now. And I need some advice. People are driving me CRAZY. A few days ago I was seconds away from going off on a crowd of people that decided it was a good idea to show up 5 mins before the doors locked. THEN, each one of them insisted on arguing with me about everything. Not going much into details, but, each one of ...

I guess it depends on how much your plan is now. Because the 1000 min national promo, along with all our other family plans. Have the first 2 phones included in the plan. Its $69.99 for the first 2 phones. And its $10 extra, per line, on lines 3-5. Whatever you're paying for only 1 line right now to add the 2nd line is the difference between your current plan and the new plan. So the ...

might not even be a US Cell phone. Go to a store with a service center and depending on what they have for phone software they might be able to re-install it. Not sure if its possible. But, if it is in fact a US Cellular phone. Might be worth checking out.

Yeah, what kriddle said. YOu're not looking at the big picture. For what you're getting. It is cheaper. If you don't need it. Don't get it. Keep what you have. Look at your bill. Unless someone screwed up, you're probably paying more than just $39.95 for n&w AND free incoming. And you're not that far from more features for maybe a couple dollars that might save you in the long run. but, like ...

You still going on about this crap.?? Didn't you just start another one recently also.? Really, just give it a rest. Its starting to get very boring and you're playing the "I gotta secret but, i'm not telling because you're a doo doo head." game. Stop it with this holier than thou ****.

I always like to ask when i sell a black berry to some kid.. "so what are ya gonna be using it for.?" "texting and they look cool" oooh great. 30 day return. Mom/dad, "junior here doesn't like paying the $25+texting per month for the phone after all." what i would like to say, "no ****" Some dumb asses kept us after we closed for over an hour not too long ago buying a black berry for their 14 year old son. ...

Can't give a date.. but, the odds of it being available before the end of the month is great. You don't have to buy out your contract to get the new promo either. New phone... maybe. Promo. No

If the dude has a valid complaint and wants to vent about it. thats cool. I for one beleive that sometimes you need to go outside of work to vent about work. Here is a good place, because there are lots of people that are USCC employees that can relate and/or talk with you at least. HOWEVER, there is all this drama coming out.. but, nothing coming out. Ted met his deadline on your ...

HAHA.. close. More like TIRED of CR reps. Some are good ones and at least hold their ground with ****. I F'n hate the fact that some people have legit reasons they need to cancel or have legit problems and get shafted because they don't BITCH enough.. and act like adults. But then you get the AHole that just WANTS to pay less because he is some king-ding-a-ling in his own mind and we bend ...

You must not have been working for the company long. I can buy and sell employee phones, to other employees, all day long and they can be used without any problems.
