Replacing a broken phone..

in the Boost Mobile forum

I have a boost mobile android phone that has been acting up and is not under warranty. I've had it long enough that my plan is down to $50.00 If I go to a store or ebay and buy another Boost Mobile phone, do I have to start my contract over again. Not sure how this works... thanks..

1000 apologies for getting my Math incorrect.. And I really appreciate you validating my facts.. I guess, I will try and go back and edit my post. But, seriously. When I wrote the post, I didn't really set down and think about what exact year I started and ended. And I don't have those records on file anymore.. I know it was a long time ago. And I did have Sprint for a while, before cancelling them. They ...

Vercetti, Funny.... The lady that turned me down, sent me an e-mail asking if all my needs or issues were taken care of... If not, I was to reply with the issues and it would be sent to a manager to look at. 3 days later I get a call. They are going to refund my ETF. The excuse, was that I didn't get a NEW phone with the other contract. I think, they were looking for a reason to make me happy. But for ...

I know you did. And I really appreciate what you did... I know more companies are starting to use Highly populated forums as a customer service portal.. DSL-Reports com has the same thing.... So thanks again..

Vercetti, I want to thank you for ALL your HELP.. I really thought that I was going to get something accomplished. Maybe not everything I wanted. But I would have thought Sprint would have given into something... I now understand why I was hit with the ETF and the new 2 year contract... I thought, that maybe they would have waived either the ETF or the 2 year contract (Since I already own the phone.) But the "Employees Helping Customers" rep, basically told ...

Is there an E-mail contact for customer support... I tried calling, but couldn't get my story to sound right... Thought, if I could just put everything down in an email... My Rant I recently move down from Ohio to WV. I had a 614 area code on my cell phone. Eventually I came up with the idea of getting a virtual phone number with a 304 area code. Now, how was I to switch them. I borrowed a phone ...

in the Sprint forum

I am still in my 30 days... didn't put no money down... Because of the clerks goof up, I didn't even pay for the phones (The cost was put on my account) I NEVER port my numbers, until I am sure, that I am going to keep the phones. So I will just return them and hold out for the EVO... That phone is going to be so much better than the HERO... Especially since Sprint just changed the upgrade to 2.1 again..

Sorry, I should of been more clear... I still have one week left on my 30 day FREE return. I still have my Verizon phones, they just are flakey in my house. I would return the phones and than just open up another account when the EVO comes out.

I currently am a long time (8 years) Verizon customer. I have been having trouble in my area with poor service after 6 years and purchased two HTC Hero phones on April 17th for $200.00 a piece. Since than, I have found out that, I can now get both phones for $200.00 and the HTC Evo is due on around the 2nd week of June. I called Customer Service and told them, that I was not happy with the HTC Hero (Which ...

Blitz - Kewl phone - Sound/Speakerphone quality SUX
Sep 9, 2008, 4:47 PM
in the UTStarcom Blitz TXT8010 forum

My wife bought this phone. We had to take the first one back because it kept rebooting.. But the Speakerphone and sound quality is terrible.. Both phones were crap. I realize this is being pushed as a text msging phone. But you would think sound quality would be pretty good. Anyone else have any issues with the sound quality.

in the Verizon Wireless forum

I just started a contract job with Honda and found out I can not use my VX6700 phone because it has a camera.. So I am looking for a cheap replacement that does not have a camera.. Only features I want are a GOOD speakerphone and it to be small. Dave

No it is not my phone.... I know it is the service... And yes, I have tried other data phones... But if I am tethering, Getting Emails through push or whatever, receiving a phone call. It interferes with a lot of different equipment.. My wife cannot even keep her data phone near her phone at work. Because as she receives alot of emails it causes constant interference with her phone..... Others have different carriers that use data constantly and have no problems. I thought at ...

First of all their are good things I like about Cingular Service... Rate plan Data plan Rollover Minutes Customer Service (At the store) But the wife and I both got Data phones about 9 months ago.... And at that time I did not know about the annoying interference that the phone can cause with some phone systems, radios etc..... When I first noticed this happening I didn't know that it was my phone.. And was a little embarrassed after wards. I was even told ...

I am currently on Cingular and am looking to switch... Went to a verizon store and talked with someone about purchasing two Pocket PC PDA's.. I believe it was the 6700's So Family plan with data.. With 700 minutes and data it was going to be around 160.00 a month.... The data plan was around $40.00 per phone.... Does verizon have any other data plans that are unlimited and inexpensive... We ended up buying a couple of phones at Sprint (better pricing and ...

How does cingular sell phones with this annoying problem... I can't believe their is not a sticky on this forum.... Had I know about this... I would have passed on cingular or any GSM carrier.. When I do a search their is not a lot of people complaining about the buzz a cingular/gsm phones make When my wife and I first got our phones I thought a land line phone at a clients site had gone bad. ...

in the Audiovox forum

I have an Audiovox SMT5600. About 3 weeks ago it just froze up and I couldn't get it to do anything. I turned it off. But when I turned it on again it would bring up an Audiovox screen and than a screen saying Windows Mobile. Than it would eventually go back to the audiovox screen. If I leave the phone on it just keeps cycling those 2 screens over and over. I can't even turn the phone off. I tried holding ...

But am thinking up upgrading to the sx66... But do not want to order one since I am not sure I really like it without trying it... Also, anyone know a good place to get a better price...

I have been traveling for a month and knew I was going to go over my minutes... But because I knew about the $5.00 for every 100 minutes, I wasn't really worried too much... But I just got my bill today and it's almost $300.00.... about 210.00 more than usual.. After talking with a CSV rep, I found out my plan is old and the 100 minutes for $5 is not covered under my plan.... I have had sprint for about 6 years now.. ...
