Does Sprint provide service on the device?
Feb 17, 2011, 1:06 PM
in the Sprint forum

If you answered yes to that question you have an obligation as a Sprint representative to provide technical/other assistance on the device. Regardless of where the device is purchased it's your job to help the customer. I don't care about your pity party; really, I don't. I know there are sometimes seemingly unachievable sales goals, but those goals don't relieve you of your duty to the customer. Balls up and deal with it. You're not providing any real reason a customer ...

A lot of times it's more than just the mail-in rebate being taken off up front. What you're basically saying is that you care more about sticking it to your customers than them actually receiving a good price on a phone. If you can't treat people with dignity while also maintaining a good conversion rate then you don't need to be in sales. I really hope OP didn't get sucked in by the garbage you people have been spewing about how ...

"I didn't get commission on the sale so why should I help?!" Get over it. TEP can be added to any device within 30 days and corporate stores can provide technical assistance on phones bought from a third party. The point is, Best Buy is only meant to be a 'contract mill' and they do a good job of it. The out of pocket cost on an Epic is going to be at least $100 cheaper at Best Buy. Do I wish ...

go to Best Buy. You'll get good pricing and fast, courteous service. If you go to Radio Shack you'll usually get poor service. If you go to Sprint you'll get robbed blind. Once you get your phone, call customer service and have them set up a corp/gov discount for you. Each branch of the military has one available (usually for about 15%). I work for Sprint, but take my advice and just go to Best Buy. You'll be much happier.

That is friggin' hilarious. Sprint honestly isn't making a huge effort to hire the best and brightest.

SavageKitty said: However what about the situations where it can be done and the rep doesn't want to or is not aware of how to do it. Again, I say something to the effect of "Thank you so much for your assistance today. I do know that your department is equipped to handle this issue, so please place your supervisor on the line."

I humiliate them by getting their supervisor on the line. I love when other reps call me and start telling me how to do my job when they don't have a clue. I know my job better than anyone in this center (that includes sups, quality, and management), so when I say something can't be done it can't be done.

For cereal. I always advise my Nextel customers to ensure they're on Wi-Fi when downloading apps, etc. with the i1. The only real problem with the phone is the iDen data netwo---oh, that's right. iDen doesn't have a data network. :wink: But honestly, it's a great phone. Setting proper expectations for customers is so important. I can't believe so many sales reps neglect to do so.

I thought the Motorola i1 for Nextel was released well before the Defy.

Sprint has an IVR for their corporate stores that I would think generally weeds that crap out. Guess you don't work for Sprint?

I can't post hyperlinks because I can't see the URL in my address bar at work, and I'm not going to waste my home-time helping you do your job. If it's relevant to your position in telesales/care/wherever then you should ask your supervisor/site management.

bluedrummer27 said: Are you people stupid??? Do you REALLY think Sprint would accept food stamps??? FOOD STAMPS = FOOD!!! Stamps = Mail. What's your point? As was pointed out in the official press release and my original post, they are able to offer this option to customers because of a loophole opened when they started offering phones made from corn-based bio-plastic.

I was actually right behind your mother. Wasn't the first time either... Funny thing, she accepts food stamps as payment too. :wink: Anyway, it's a cool program Sprint has set up for their lower income consumers. I think we can all agree that more options for consumers is a good thing.

Corporate stores should be able to take payments in the form of food stamps, yes. Third-parties probably won't be able to at this time.

Re: Question for sales reps
Jan 21, 2011, 2:11 PM
in the Shop Talk forum

It seems pretty excessive. As a consumer I'd be pissed. Our outbound reps have 'campaigns' where they basically call through a very long list of customers on an automated dialer. The campaign changes every couple months with different targets and offers, but each customer will probably be hit 3 or more times in a single campaign. But customers do always have the option to request that you not call them again (usually takes a week to update in dialers though) if ...

Yeah, apparently AE has a 'non-prosecution' policy or something stupid that basically means the company won't press charges against anyone for attempted theft, ****ting on coats, causing a disturbance...really anything.

and a customer wanted to use their restroom. They don't have a public restroom, and that's what the employees told her...so the chick grabs a couple shirts/pants and goes into a dressing room then shts all over the merchandise.

Re: I Phone vs. Fascinate

From a basic user's point of view there essentially not going to be a difference. If you already have the Fascinate and are familiar with the UI you might as well keep it. Unless you contract a case of fanboy-itis the devices are quite comparable.

But it's closing the price gap. What has Sprint been advertising for the past three years? Low prices! While Sprint is still (barely) cheaper than it's biggest competitors, the price hike does give customers another reason to go with a more reliable carrier with better services. *cough* Verizon. *cough*

Just cancel your service.
Jan 20, 2011, 9:24 AM
in the Shop Talk forum

No major postpaid carrier is going to give you a high quality phone and plan to suit your requests. I'm pretty sure you can get a basic TracFone in Wal-Mart for about 20 bucks and the monthly cost will probably be about what you're currently paying.

The fifty dollars includes the Premium data charge. :roll: If you can't afford it then look into a phone you can afford. Don't cry to retentions because you don't make enough money to live luxuriously.

I understand how SERO plans work. I'm handling one right now. What I'm saying is that you have the option to pay $50 a month (which is not double your current bill, genius) and get a great device at promotional price or you can pay $80 a month and get the same phone for free. Why is this even a retentions issue? Because you're greedy.
