once again reps get the shaft
I'd still wouldn't buy it there.
No offense to the people working there but they have cashiers running the stand, not reps. Most Wal-mart customers still end up coming to my store to get the phone because they know they can get the support they need here.
i understand your concern regarding ill-informed reps.
if someone messes up their phone maybe they should pretend to be cool. should get a simpler phone 🤣
Let Me Get This Straight?!?!?!
With a raise of hands, how many people have purchased an i phone at Wally World? Yea, I didnÃ¢â‚¬™t think so. The reason the Iphone is so revered is due to its limitations in the way of how one could receive the device. in order to get the device one must go to a direct at&t dealer and then purchase a phone package that fits into the requirements.
the problem i have is not with the people that sell the phones or the service people will get when they purchase them, instead the problem I have is that this was supposed to be "our turn" (in a whiney tone). the G1 (or G unit as I call it) was supposed to be t-mobiles version of the i phone, the most decorated and desired device for young adults. instead t mobile ...

T-mobile is so dumb!
Imagine all the people going to walmart during the christmas season....
ok, so Like a lot of you, I'm in the indirect channel for a multi-carrier dealer... and I know that it's frustrating to see the customers come in with the "i want the walmart price with the _______ (fill in the blank with your store name here) customer service.
Fact is these days people don't want to pay money for phones, especially the contracted ones anymore. But for all of us in that industry, may I remind you of two things.. all the "less then intellectuals" that will stand in a mile long cell phone line, and the "pimply kid that doesn't know how to activate worth a crap"..
Just imagine it, doesn't it make you want to crack up laughing? At least come up with a silver lining to that cloud!
