And not for the better. Definitely as of 12/5 any person that can authenticate an account can have it cancelled. If that person has the security information then they can pretty much do anything to the account and leave the account holder the debt. Like, say upgrading all lines on the account but the account holders, then cancelling the lines after putting the old devices back on there. The account holder gets the 36.00 per line upgrade fee and the ETF ...

They can pray to Jesus and ask him to fix their phone for them so they won't be out of pocket.

The non-english speaking American citizen: The ones that are non immigrants and always says "I want to aks you why my bill so high?" If only I could tell them, "Because your bill was out behind the dumpster with the bad kids smoking a bowl while skipping english class like you did."

This applies to both Store Reps and Call Center Reps

When you promise to give the customer a specific credit, then don't. Store Reps it's usually the activation or upgrade fee - don't tell them to call Care, I will send them back to you to credit it because Care does not. Call Center Reps - don't promise a credit for valid charges and then transfer to Care to get it applied, won't happen. For Care Reps - don't promise a credit to get the customer off the phone telling them you ...

dopeygirl said: Sales CANNOT track orders, cancel orders, issue credits for ANYTHING. We can sell phones, accessories and add lines. PERIOD!!!! /start rant not likely to be listened to I would recommend to Sales, if you cannot issue credits for ANYTHING, then DO NOT TELL THEM THEY WILL BE CREDITED FOR VALID CHARGES. Also, if you are working with a customer and call Care to get VALID charges credited so you can make the sale, don't be surprised when we ...

The simple answer is it all boils down to no personal responsibility.

Ignorant: Uninformed but willing to be educated. (Low percentage of callers fit this group) Example: Cust: I was told this phone was free so why is there an upgrade fee for it? Rep: The was no charge for the phone but to get the phone for no cost you had to upgrade and that does have a fee per your terms and conditions. Cust: Oh. I wasn't told that.... Stupid: Educated or not on the topic, refuses to accept the truth of the situation ...

THE TRUTH do you? Why would they admit they played drunken football in the parking lot of Wal-mart one night and used the phone for a ball because they didn't want to risk bursting a can of the precious Milwaukee's Best that they bought earlier that day for $6.00 a case, especially since the phone company should be responsible for them being given a phone in the first place. Just ask them, they'll tell you the phone company needs ...

Such a long standing consumer of our services, I recommend this phenomenal new service, it's called the 0 plan. It has 0 minutes, nights and weekends at 9pm, $0.50/min overage, no text and no data services. You add on all the features you need. Now, text messaging is 20.00 per line for unlimited text, picture mail is an additional 5.00 per line, data services are 39.99 per line for basic with 69.99 for premium, then mobile to mobile is ...

What? A customer that is reasonable? Or helpful? Not very likely to happen. If they wanted to even remotely be like that, they would go into a store because they are less likely to be a complete twit. Instead, they call because they can do so from the privacy of their own bathroom (while using said facilities) to berate our gene pool because they talked 3500 minutes on a plan with 200 minutes and we never told them they ...

The points I listed were warm transfers I received from Asurion. Not "I heard that....". They were calls I got. The customers I've dealt with have never said "Asurion said..." it was a rep from Asurion say "You need to do this, we can't but you can".

ASURION REPS THIS IS WHAT SPRINT CARE REPS CANNOT DO: 1. We cannot WAIVE THE DEDUCTABLE. Asurion charged it NOT Sprint. If you do not waive it, do not tell them to call Sprint or transfer them to Sprint to waive it. We just send them right back to you. 2. We cannot track a lost or stolen phone (even if lost or stolen that same day). Do not tell them they need to talk to Customer Care to have Sprint ...

Here's an additional (and this was not just the customer saying a store told them, the store rep was in the background of the call telling the customer that my information was incorrect): Do not tell the customer we will give them a new phone because they lost their phone ESPECIALLY when they DO NOT HAVE either upgrade eligibility OR handset protection coverage. Tell the customer the truth. Tell them they would have to either buy a new phone or ...

If they are staring at my screen I start typing them messages on my note pad in like 48 point font see if they are actually reading or just being stupid. (I do the same when my supv is live monitoring) It makes things funny to watch the reaction.

Here's how to deal with the custies and the store reps in question: 1. Tell the customer that Care is NOT able to credit that. 2. Tell the customer if the store offered the credit ONLY THE STORE can credit it. Usually resolves the ones that are lying and puts it back on the reps that promised it for the ones that aren't lying.

Re: Don't you love being put on hold by a customer?

I love the fact that after a very short period if they still have me on hold I dead air them and hang up all with company approval. They want to do payback for being put on hold to resolve the issue, fine, just don't expect to have me waiting for you to get back from hitting on the coworker or talking to the insignificant other.

I missed that. :( I've only run into a person routinely claiming that they had their seat jacked by someone else, and that the other person even logged them out to take the seat. But hey, any thing involving lack of reality is possible.

Well...this is a little involved at first, but in the end is very simple. 1. All devices a built with a C-4 Charge in the center of the device capable of remote detonation 2. All carriers have added to their terms and conditions a "Termination Clause" that allows the carrier to terminate the customer at will. 3. All carriers add to their software systems the functionality to trigger the "Termination Clause" of the agreement. 4. If a customer starts getting out of hand, ...

J/C, which carrier do you work for? I know at least one carrier is telling the Care Reps to refer the customer to the corp stores for assistance with the phone they bought REGARDLESS of where POS is.

Now I know there are many that honestly try to do the right thing and assist the customer. I also know that there are many that won't help the customer unless there is a sale involved to increase their paycheck. That is true with care as well. The current issue I have (and right now it only involves 1 site because I had to deal with them directly) is because of a software issue for a specific phone. Within the last few ...
