Exactly. It wouldn't necessarily behoove Motorola to not take the settlement if it got to that point. It would paint Motorola as the bad guy and you had better believe Apple would go to war with their patents. This is just a battle.

Oh that's right, intellectual property rights mean nothing!

How silly of me and the courts and the government to think otherwise. Thanks for reminding us, HatesBlackberrys!

Yeah, nothing against telesales or online sales. But I'm in face to face retail, so obviuosly I want my customers to come to my store. I still don't get why somebody would be comfortable with buying a phone anywhere but in store. And what about exchanges? That's a close I frequently use: "Hey, worst case scenario, if you don't like the phone, you do have x number of days to bring it back and exchange it out, so you're ...

That was the last closing tactic I used, and it didn't work. It's a great tactic, especially when I instruct them to carry both phones around and directly compare and contrast them. But still, I hate using that tactic becuase it invites far more returns than the traditional buyer's remorse period close.

What is the incentive to buy from telesales?

I personally would rather pay a bit more for the phone to be able to get it in store. I just don't like the idea of buying online. Can you guys waive act/upgrade fees? Can you make deals on the handsets? Any incentives?

The service is terrible at our house. We can barely get a signal. M: Well that's too bad. Are you two in a contract with them? C: No, our contract ended not too long ago.

I've been getting it for about two months. In my area, I deal with the most ridiculously die hard iZombies. I hate them sometimes, but then I love them whenever a new iPhone releases. At the end of the day, they're just another dollar bill to me.

I can't believe AT&T is going to leave a big size of their customer base out to pasture.

in the AT&T forum

I can. They are a pubicly traded company. Accordingly, their investors constantly demand higher profit per share. Thus, their business model is to focus on smartphones, which result in both higher revenues and profits. From a business standpoint, it makes sense. As a user, it is frustrating.

We don't carry the Captivate any more. Daughter just wanted it. My guess is she's been wanting it for a while because that phone is like a year and a half old. *shrugs shoulders*

Like I said, we don't sell accessories at my store. How I wish we did. The profit margin on accessories is huge and makes for a great little addition to my paycheck. Oh well, one can hope.

What is the most money you've gotten a customer to spend on ETFs to switch carriers? I once got a four line activation from a customer who had to pay $960 in ETFs from her old carrier.

It was excruciating trying to read all that.

Is that so? Do you not read books? Perhaps magazines? Even news articles? If you think that my post was tl;dr, I'm afraid you are starving yourself of a great wealth of knowledge. :(

I love using that phrase, but sadly, it didn't work with these folks. Daughter was 11 at most and didn't use the phone much. I even tried the fire and brimstone tactic of huge overages, but they assured me she didn't/wouldn't use much. I even told them that her usage would change as she became more comfortable with Android, seeing as the system encourages data use with app downloads, great browsing, etc. But alas, no go. I was happy ...

Haha I passed on that. I've been here long enough and taken the reigns enought times to know that the company almost NEVER promotes from within. The one manager I've worked with that got promoted was a DM for two months before he was straight canned for non performance (even though he hit target both months).

Mom and daughter walk into my store. They're looking for a replacement device for daughter until she's eligible to upgrade in August. She wants a slider with a touchscreen, and is eying the prepaids. I ask mom if any of the lines on her account are eligible for upgrade. None are. I hear that all the time only to find out when I look up the account that there is at least one that is indeed eligible, so I ...

Rooting an EVO
Mar 25, 2012, 7:40 PM
in the Android forum

I'm a bit behind the times and as a result, I'm using an EVO I bought off somebody recently. I want to root it, but I have zero experience doing so. From what I understand, I can pretty much just go online and download the software onto my phone. I'm not asking how to do it; I'll figure that out. I'm just asking which root I should use. What's your favorite?
