please all reps advise your customers to subscribe to wireless insurance. i am so tired of getting calls where the customer says 'my phone is broken what can you do to get me a new one' and i don't see insurance on the account and i have to argue with them about company policy regarding phone replacements. i'm not blaming you guys though forreal i'm sure all you offer it, its just that the customers refuse it. and those are the same ones that call like a few months later saying the phone is lost, stolen, or broken, and get irate because we can't give them a new one. thats what insurance is for!!!

Fricking Tamborines!

I'm at a call center and while i'm trying to talk to customers and connect lines, the supervisors are constantly walking around shaking frickin tamborines yelling "GET THE SALE!" and "QUALITY!". It's so annoying! Mad The customers can hear them in the background and they actually ask me what's going on. Does anyone else have to put up with this?

had one of those... ALREADY

So, I was opening up this morning and an elderly lady walks up and was like " I want a phone!" OK. So, I started explaining the plans and what not and of course when I was telling her the cheapest plan I could give her was 29.99, she went balistic. She ONCE had a plan that was 12.99 and she demanded she HAD to have that plan. Sorry, I had to vent because I can already tell that it's going to be one of those days.

GSM lets compete on phone quality not coverage

This goes out to all those interested in making cellular the product it was created to be. A device that knows no boundaries which works on a worldwide area and customers like in Europe have there Sim card and there business goes to the better phone.
here in the states we have lost sight of how connecting big corps. could be better in the long run. having a gsm network that all carriers run on would create a race to make the best, smallest, coolest, cheapest phone. when we get this idea running I would once again come out of the closet and tell everyone I work in the cellular industry I like it because it pays the bills other than that the people that run these giants; cingular, verizon, t-mobile, sprint have all lost sight of the dream if ...

cancel the insurance!

I love those people, then they call right back and complain because it's gonna be full retail at the store or through warranty because they lied and said it was good and warr. found it wasn't. Just own up to the way you treat our phone. Is it so hard to say, yeah I dropped it. My fault there!

read the fine print

Just denied a claim b/c he washed the phone 6 months ago. Fully admitted it was at least that long ago, but when I denied it, his excuse was that "nobody reads all that fine print." Well, sorry, buddy, the fine print is what hangs you. The MA's got that one.

!!!NEW NOKIA 6100 SPY PHONE on sale!!! Twisted Evil

We can modify NOKIA 6100 mobile phone. The telephone is programmed with a telephone number and when anyone
calls the spyphone, it rings and operates as a normal telephone but when the phone is called using the telephone with the
number that was previously programmed into the spyphone, it automatically answers without any ringing or lights coming on
and the display stays the same as if it is on ordinary standby. There is no other spy telephone available that can do all
this. This phone can be used with any sim card in any country.
Price: 800 usd
