Re: The Trick to a Cheap Phone at T-Mobile- BEATING THE SUBSIDY
Mar 22, 2013, 2:22 AM
in the Article: The Phone You're Paying For But Not Getting forum

I bought my S3 full price from T-mobile, if I was going to stay with them I would have surely like to have done it this way. Good thinking! Too bad it wouldn't have worked for me since I was buying the phone to use on another carrier. Well Unless I did it how you said, which would have gotten me a phone for possibly $100 or so less then what I paid and once on prepaid, cancelled after a ...

Amazing way for T-mobile customers to save some cash.

in the Article: The Phone You're Paying For But Not Getting forum

I bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 from T-mobile full price. (Just don't trust Craigslist) But take that phone to Straight talk. In the store Straight talk sells flip phones that run on Verizon and Android phones that run on Sprint. (At least in my area, Indiana.) But if you get on Straight talk's site you can pay $15 for a T-mobile SIM card that supports their 4g, you now have a 4g t-mobile phone running with a 4g t-mobile ...

From an AT&T center in Indiana. The reason being that our center is making a crap ton of changes, so much so that a lot of people are quitting and I got caught up in it all and couldn't hang with the changes I guess. Was passed to 5 managers in 2 months and they changed the metrics we are scored on after 2 years, I was set in my ways at couldn't adapt to the changes so they ...

If it's offered by the same people who run AT&Ts insurance there probably will be tiers. I understand why Asurion makes tiers but some them need to be updated.

But does anyone know if the speeds for the pre-paid service BEFORE going over your data limit are the same as post-paid or are they slower because you are not on contract?

Re: What is this "iPhone 5" you speak of?

in the Shop Talk forum

That's what I meant about bending over backwards for the iPhone. Do you know how many people call in for their upgrade. I tell them they are eligible in like 6 months but if they want I can do an Android phone now...and possibly free and they tell me no? One day a lady responded with, but why would I want to downgrade!?!?!?!

Customers know more then me!

I don't know how many of you are AT&T reps, but I guess now Verizon and Sprint reps may understand this too. WTF is up with customer's calling in wanting to know if they can upgrade and then proceed to tell you when the new iPhone is coming out? They don't ask, they don't say they heard a rumor. I was literally just told "That's bull I can't upgrade, the iPhone 5 is coming out in June and I have ...

in the T-Mobile forum

yourvoiceofreason said: My point is simply that terms like 4G, 3G, etc are based on standards that are agreed to in the industry. It has been decided that HSPA+ can be called 4G because it has significant increases in speed to 3G. If that standard has been updated to accept this, then why can't people accept it too?... THANK YOU! I would in no way say that it is superior to LTE, but as an AT&T rep, I am tired ...

He was asking for me as he is a T-mobile user and I am a virgin mobile user. I've never had any issues with calls or texts with Virgin, but the data is HORRIBLE. (I average about 240kbps as he is running over 3000 easily in the same call center building.) I was thinking about switching to get faster data but want to stay prepaid and wasn't sure if the data would be worse or not. And yes I ...

These notations about sum it up. Cci and wanted to get help with his phone not being activated. Cust read error, which stated "Please connect to iTunes, if you still cannot activate, please call Apple support." Advised customer to please connect to iTunes, if he still cannot activate it, to please call Apple support.

I thought, AT&T's Tablet policy, was 14 days to return/exchange the device AND remain a customer but if you wanted to return it and cancel the service completly you still had 30 days?

Skully said: You: We can add tethering for X$ a month then you just click one button and it's on. He already had it on there. He just couldn't get it to work. After I facepalmed over his stupidity. He then advised me that he was calling in on the phone he was having trouble with (which most center reps know isn't helpful) and that he was out to dinner with some friends and was nowhere near his laptop.

It is so terrible. I can't stand it. Makes it worse when you are trying to go through the last couple bills and then they switch back to the old format and then your trying to cross info from one format to another. :evil:

Re: Stores and Fees
Mar 13, 2012, 3:32 PM
in the Shop Talk forum

It's actually gotten bad enough here that I tell them that if the upgrade/activation fee came from the store's system we cannot waive it in customer care and that only the store can do so. We are never supposed to waive those fees unless the customer has an agreement on their account saying they can have it removed. If the store is going to say that we will remove it, that is a lie.
