customers are there really that take advantage of the unlimited wireless data and bandwidth Sprint offers with it's no-cap data plans? Is it really worth it to lose the customers who don't heavily use the uncapped bandwidth? Garanteed, if Hesse goes through with this, we'll lose more customers than it would cost to just put some kind of block on our heaviest users.

Who knows? This guy is talking to me about how he just got out of a pretty long relationship about 2 months ago and he's talking to this woman he "fell madly in love with"... Interesting. Kinda weird. I want him to stop charging his phone here. And stop talking to me about these things. I don't know if he just feels comfortable talking to me [because he's been here before, and I get that "you just seem like a really ...

Our policy states that when a customer comes in to activate a phone that they did not purchase at our store, we must check the esn for fraud or see if it has been reported lost or stolen. There's a look up tool for this. Once the status of the esn has been determined, if lost or stolen, you must take the necessary steps to locate and contact the owner of the phone so that it can be returned to ...

That's creepy. We don't let ANYONE use our restrooms. Mainly because there's a lot of drug use in our area, and bums. They'd probably do the same stuff. I wish we had a sign that says we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. It's pretty much an unspoken rule in the service industry, but still... it would help.

The difference: Damaged = Customer's fault. Broken = Not customer's fault. As in the carrier gave them a broke-ass phone. In which case, the customer should be covered under the warranty as long as they haven't had their phone for more than a year. REPLACE MAH PHN DAMMIT! :lol:

I've played around for a really long time. I could deal with the fact that I don't have 180 days to get charged back if a customer decides to churn. But I couldn't deal with that whole no raise thing for 4 years. Sprint really makes you work for your money, huh? That's why I work for an indirect. I get a raise every year, and I'm not gonna tell you how much, because then I'd feel like I'd just ...

It depends on what kind of store you send the customer to. We're an indirect agent, and since we're charged to keep the updated license on the cellbrite machine (to transfer contacts), we have to charge our customers $15 unless they purchased their phone from our store (could be different elsewhere). Corporate stores do not, and should not charge for this service. Our indirect can only bill phones to accounts (and nothing else) as long as there is no spending limit ...

We STILL haven't gotten our EVO shipment. It's been almost two weeks. I saw the order and we're supposed to get 4, and my manger's like: OH, I have 3 exchanges and the last one will be on hold for my customer. I almost don't even want to sell them anymore because he's just being super selfish. And this customer I posted about... his phone... had naked pictures of his elephant-sized girlfriend on it. I had to be sure that this ...

The guy reviewing this may have been in a more heavily concentrated area for AT&T's service. Where I am, the service sucks, and it's a pretty large city. The iPhone drops calls down town. BOOO!

Please stop telling customers our location is a corporate/repair center. I realize some customers are STUPID and don't know that when the front doors of a business (or any building for that matter) face a particular street, their address is ON said street. I also recognize not all customers have common sense, and therefore do not read the HUGE numbers right above our door before coming in to ask if we do repairs. But I ALSO know a lot of center ...

That's why I always tell customers that the insurance is like car insurance. You pay a monthly premium, and when you place a claim, you pay a deductible. They usually understand it then... and also don't forget to mention that they can't add it on AFTER the accident. It's common sense. People should know this ish, but they're too busy trying to act entitled like the world owes them something for nothing.

1. I can understand talk where you don't really conjugate verbs and don't have any connectors in your sentences. 2. It's almost as bad as Spanish speaking customers... if not worse. 3. They sound just like any other islander and my dad is an islander, so I don't really have a problem with it... but I could see where people who don't know would. Even their "learning English" is easier to understand than most. LOL. My dad used to say "off ...

that customers think we have GPS tracking systems in the billing software on our terminals. Or access to see orders that we SUBMIT... if we had to SUBMIT it, then common sense says we can't see every peice of information you have questions about. Someone else does, because we SUBMIT it to them! We don't order it ourselves! :roll:

called this morning and wanted to know who our store's DM was. She said she got her phone at a corporate store (not what she said directly, but by the information she gave us, that's all we could surmise). Our store is NOT corporate, so we called our IAE and told him the information that we had (which isn't much). We told her we weren't corporate and she was like, "Fine. Will you just pass on my information to ...

That's the thing about customers... they don't care what the rep says because they get conflicting information from reps they've talked to that are veteran and ones they've talked to that are two days out of training. :lol: I used to do floor support for reps who were new and had questions (basically didn't know how to check their resources and read M&P's), and the things I heard when they were on the phones made me :roll:. ...

It's the same either way. The company I work for right now does both in-line and kiosk stores, in malls or otherwise. A lot of the time our stores aren't capable of doing much more than selling you a phone with a new contract (as upgrade or new), checking your balance and taking bill payments. We don't even do billing for cripes sake! So I know most customers leaving this store who call in and say "I WANT MY UPGRADE, ...

IgotStax said: ...so you know is on premier accounts and the primary line only I think it's funny that you group all store reps into one category. It's kind of rude actually. I've been in the wireless industry for 6 years now, and half of that was in a call center aas a supervisor. I know the SERIOUSLY annoying things that store reps do. What's more, I make it a point to be exactly the opposite and know what I'm doing! FYI, I ...
