Verizon entering Canada??

Hey All! What is your take on Verizon entering Canada?? Seems that ROBELUS is making a big stink and getting no where. Do you think it will be positive or negative for Canadians?

cust: I just wanted to let you know I am mailing my payment today so don't suspend my service.

me: Okay well it can take up to 10 business days for a mailed pmt to post so let me set a payment arrangement so you don't get suspended before it posts.

cust: No, I just told you I'm mailing it today.

me: Ma'am, I don't think you understood what I said. I said it can take 10 business days for that to post onto your acc. The money is past due, you will be suspended if I don't set up a payment arrangement.

cust: Whatever, I don't know why this is so difficult.

what I wanted to say: you're an idiot.

Holiday Pay

It is really nice to see that our Corporate employees gets holiday pay. As for us store employees only get three holidays off that are treated as a day off so no holiday pay is given. Any body else has this issue?

"There is nothing different between the iphone 4S and the iphone 5... They just made it look more like a Galaxy."

How would you handle a situation in which a customer purchased a phone from your store, never activated it, and then came back, said the phone was stolen, and now they want you to mark the phone as lost or stolen. If the phone was never activated, how can you put a status on it? Would you activate the ESN long enough to mark it as lost or stolen and then put the orginal ESN back on?

Android Upgrade?

I just found a customer that has a Sony Xperia U with the international version, according to sony's website there is an upgrade for that phone that originally comes with the android gingerbread 2.3.6 and it can be upgraded to android ice-cream sandwich 4.0.1 but for some reason it is not letting him upgrade, do you have any idea of what the issue could be?

I found your gs4 answer...

Your mobile device supports a feature called Smart Alert. Smart Alert is a motion gesture that will cause your device to vibrate when you pick it up and when notifications, such as missed calls or new messages, are waiting.

You can turn on this feature in the motion settings menu. From the Home screen, touch Menu > Settings > My device > Motions and gestures > Motion. Touch the slider to turn Motion on , if not already turned on. Touch the slider to turn Smart alert on .

There you go Wink Smile

Has anybody ever encountered that issue with the iphone 4 using Excessive amount of data?

I have had multiple cases and always it is with the iphone 4. I followed up with a few customers that i have encountered the problem with and some stop getting overages after doing a master reset, some after a software update, i have even had customer get warranty replacement .

And the problem really seems not to be with the customer's usage but the phone itself.

Can anybody help me confirm?
