Moisture Indicator??

I am a VZW Sales Rep for about 3 months now, and today I read some posts which talked about a Moisture (liquid) Indicator under the battery. Can any one give me more info on this and where I can find it, or is it different for each phone???

frustration is setting in....

do you guys ever get asked things like "why didn't my phone work when i was in portland two weeks ago?" as they stand in your store (which is notably not anywhere near portland). what's the best way you've come up with for these poor souls? i know it's not their fault that they don't understand the technology, but i've already had three different people ask me questions like that today... and i still have 3 more hours to go...

Good morning, I am bored

Just checking in. I have nothing to rant about, but I think I getting hooked at chatting here. It is nice to talk to shop with others in the industry outside my market. I see the same Carrier and Vendor reps, there is nothing new going on right now. Listening to a "GSM America" commercial on the radio, our best network ever, yada yada. How many bars to youhave have? Right now I'd rather be in one.
Later, my phone friends

The Ones We Hate

Wireless Call Center Employees Unite!!!

this is about the calls you hate, i know there is one or two or more types of calls that you absolutely can't stand. you know the ones where when they tell you their issue you bang your fist on the desk or throw your arms in the air. when you type their mobile number in the system you punch down on the keys hard with your fingers like a punch. let's vent...

i just got one a minute ago. lady calls in saying that she just checked her minutes of usage and it tells her that she's gone over (or the bill is "wrong" or "unusually high" and its due to overage) and she proceeds to tell me how she NEVER goes over her minutes and she hardly ever picks up her phone during the daytime hours and if i go back o...

Insurance Nightmare, any ideas?

Afternoon all. I've got a wierd one here. Young lady comes into my ATTWS store this am. says she has the complete coverage by lockline, this consists of insurance plus warranty exchage. She called them and said the display went out. They process it through warranty exchange, avoiding the $35.00 insurance deductible.
So far so good, She uses the included envelope to send back the old one. She gets the phone back from then, rejected by warranty echange as it is two pieces. When she called up, she failed to mention, it broke in several pieces, thus casues the display to fail. Had she told them the whole story, she would have paid $35.00 and had the replacement. Now, because it was done through warranty they are billing her account $...

Verizon Treo Alerts

My apologies for posting this on this forum as it is not dedicated to the Treo specifically, but I noticed that the Treo forum does not have a lot of activity and this answer to this question is quite important to me.

I recently bought a Verizon Treo 600. So far it has worked quite well; I have fortunately not experienced most of the problems listed on the site. However, I cannot seem to locate any preference to set continual alerts for voicemail or text messages, etc.

Maybe an example would help. On my Motorola phones when I missed a voicemail or text message it would continue to make a beep/sound or vibrate about once every 15/20 seconds until I checked the messages. I cannot seem to locate this function on the Treo. If you look at t...

Nokia Car Kit Privacy Handset

I had to swap phones a few weeks ago, and when shopping for 2 new car kits for the cars, I noticed that the HSU-1 Privacy handset is not available for the new car kits. It is not even offered on Nokia's website for my old car kit, the CARK-91US for which it originally was an option.

While searching, I did find it on a European dealer's site. What's the deal? Big lawsuit, or state laws regarding true "hands free"?

Funny stories in wireless

Very Happy Did an ESN change for a prepaid customer. Due to my system being down, I called it in. Imagine my surprise when I reviewed the account and see that the PREPAID phone was approved for an upgrade and had a 1 year copmmitment and $18 upgrade fee applied! Especially since we no longer sell TDMA equipment, and this was a TDMA Prepaid account, as was the replacement phone.

Had a few good chuckles over this one. Very Happy
