AUSTIN, TEXAS -- Well for the last 3 or 4 years the service has been getting worse and worse. But the first thing that made me really mad was I had a mifi box which is a wifi box basically it was very slow even if I made sure no other computers were on it. so they send me another one totally free. I had to take it to the store. I had an unlimited plan. The man at the store told me that 6g was a faster speed not that it was a new limit for the same exact speed of the old box so "stupidly not knowing any better" I agreed and signed and I was actually out of contract and was not knowing I was signing a contract for two more years but I was actually giving up my right to unlimited data (although turtles move faster than there data speed) I was getting 6g worth of data for two years. No I may not have understood that there was no such speed as 6g but I do now. AND I WAS VERY ANGRY TO SAY THE LEAST I was going to school and their data connection would not work so I ended up paying $350 and going to Verizon which has much faster speed by the way and buying a modem and having to get a contract there. Of course the man at the store says he never said those things to me. Honestly I may be guilty of being naive about that being a speed but logically why would I of my own will knowingly give up unlimited data. Now I had a galaxy s4 pay per month plan, $600.00 well three months into it I plug it up and the next morning it did not charge they looked at it. I take care and it was in mint condition. So I receive a refurbished phone for replacement, so I am paying $600 for a refurbished phone. They had to send me three different phones before one worked properly. During all this time my calls are dropping my data connectivity barely works and they tell me I just need to be patient because its not their fault that they are rebuilding. WELL ITS NOT MINE EITHER AND IM STILL PAYING A PRICE FOR A SERVICE THAT USED TO BE GOOD!!!!
So yesterday my phone gets stolen, I have insurance, I don't want a replacement of that phone so I do a live chat with a "customer care"-liar that says what if we let you just get another brand new different brand of phone, I steadily am letting her know I just do not like the treatment and service that Sprint provides and I will let the insurance take care of the problem. she asks why and I go through the whole story of all the things that I have experienced with Sprint and believe me this is just the tip of the iceberg. What I am saying right now does not even come close to all of it, anyway so she bounces out of the chat so I can't have a copy and she again ANOTHER SPRINT EMPLOYEE can lie and make it vanish. So I got on another live chat and I actually have a copy of it showing how Sprint employees avoid really answering your questions and blatantly lie. in this chat I am fixing to post it shows how condescending they are to try and pacify or shut up the customer this man says he makes me an appointment he does not and he will not answer any questions directly which is what the one prior to this one did but the first one was more informative about how far they go to say anything

So I go into the Sprint store this morning and they look in their computer and they say well you cannot have a new phone, I don't know anything about that and they don't make appointments. It is just strange to me how a company who is so well known can treat people so bad. I will not be paying for that phone and I pay my monthly insurance so they can honestly deal with it I will not ever get another in contract phone again especially not from Sprint they should call their new spark technology, snail technology and if it could go to the moon and back in 2 seconds flat my only hope would be that the atmosphere destroy the company on their way out of our stratosphere!!!
I hope someone reads this and understands not to make the same mistakes I did. They will be really really great and sweet to you....until you are their customer. Don't believe me just go into their own website and read from all the other disgruntled customers and if you ever go into the store you will notice before you leave and even have a chance to evaluate their service they make you do a survey saying you got really great customer service and they do make sure you check excellent. A week later you are now their contracted customer, they treat you like you are crazy and they don't know why you are upset at all. That is how they fake their high rating. Do an experiment go into a store where they make a sale, someone will come up with an electronic board for rating right before that customer walks out the door before they even have a chance to see if they like the service. But if you are an unhappy customer, well they don't even ask for a rating.
KANSAS CITY, KANSAS -- I know that many of us have had issues with Sprint. My incident in no different than many of the other requests, and I would like to share it. I will also share that I have emailed Mr. White and gotten no response (Social Responsibility Executive) instead I got the feedback from another Executive who wasted no time dismissing my claims. Sprint should just allow people to leave once they have shown that they care for none of us. So many posts are centered around customer service and lack of cell service that it is baffling. Here is my story....I have been a Sprint customer for approximately 9 months. In that time I have made sure to keep insurance on my phone, as experience teaches us it is better to be safe than sorry. I was denied a phone of equal design, after it was identified to be faulty merchandise.
Typically, I would not care, but I explained to the manager that I was headed out of town and would be driving for seven+ hours, this was after I was told that I could pay the $100 deductible and get it next day (even though they were not sure what the cause of my malfunction was). In addition, I had to wait two hours for them to tell me that there was no damage inflicted by me, rather the phone was faulty. In this case, I explained that I was going out of town, would be on the road for 7 1/2 hours, that I needed a form of communication, as well as, the GPS Navigation application installed on my Samsung device. I was told that nothing could be done- that either I could pay the $100 deductible or wait the 2 hours that it would take the technician to check the phone, once it was checked, I would not receive a phone for 3-5 business days. You see, my issue is not with the customer service entirely, because they tried to be nice, but my issue is with this company that has received approximately $1,012 dollars from me over the course of 9 months. I pay for service, insurance, and I EXCEPTIONAL service.
After explaining that I would be going out of town, I fully expected that my phone would be delivered next day, or in the very least, I would be able to go to another location and receive the same phone DUE to the fact that I was going out of town, would be driving by myself for seven+ hours. As a single woman communication is everything when hitting the open road. My frustration comes in because the staff DID NOT try to help me. They did NOT try to contact upper management, they did NOT try to get my phone to me overnight versus the 3-5 business days. In addition, I live 27 miles away from the store that I visited, (closer to work).
Here is the correspondence that I received no answer to:
This reply is unacceptable. As a customer, I do not understand how a multimillion dollar corporation easily forgets about the little guy. I feel like my request were within reason, but the fact that your company has not made any amends and from the looks of it, does not plan to. This response has prompted me to seek a review by the FCC. In addition, I would like my contract with Sprint to be made void and the repercussions of the elimination of said contract at this earlier date to be nonexistent,. Please consider this my formal request to be let out of this contract. Here is the response you all posted, I would like to know if you find favor in a reply for a customer who experienced 6 events of horrific customer service over the span of three days.

Thank you for passing my correspondence on to a person you deemed acceptable to handle my grievance; however, a mere explanation of the policies of Sprint and their chosen manufacturer in no way absolves this entity of the wrong doing inflicted as outlined in my initial correspondence. Once again, I am without service due to the end result- "nothing" could be done. As you already know, I found the phone call unacceptable, the resolution nonexistent and the overall outcome a true test of my patience.
Due to the inadequate recommendations and lack of action, I have filed a formal complaint with the BBB. If and when this comes back to me, I will be doing whatever I can to raise awareness. I really feel like this company in no way cares about me as a customer, in no way cares about my circumstance, and furthermore has pushed me aside. While there are no doubt others with more pressing situations. The inaction and recommendations coupled with the mediocre service received from this corporation has really driven me to push for a fair solution. Nothing that was proposed has been just and fair, and of course it does not need to be both.
In conclusion, I do hope that my issues can and will be resolved sooner rather than later as I am now approaching the fifth consecutive day of interrupted service, a service that I happily pay for around the 19th of every month.

I hope that this correspondence finds you in good spirits. My name is M. Overstreet and I am a current customer of Sprint. I know that as the Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility, you may very well be the best avenue to communicate my recent deplorable experience with Sprintâs customer service team. Service is above all effortless; it is a drive to accommodate a stakeholder, to complete the order prior to the deadline, to be the BEST.
My recent experience with your customer service staff was anything BUT what I expected, or rather what I had come to expect. You see, I received some of the best customer service when I negotiated my contract with Sprint and for close to 9 months I have had very little to complain about; however, the recent events have substantially diminished my faith in this entity. Without further ado, let me recall the unfortunate events that took place from September 09, 2013 to September 12, 2013.
On September 09, 2013, I got home and plugged my phone in to charge, there was no response. I changed the outlets, naively believing that it was something I had done. The phone simply would not charge. On September 10, 2013, I visited Store #893. The customer service representative was exceptional; he (Anthony) had recently moved from New Orleans to Texas and tried unsuccessfully to figure out what could be wrong with my phone. Above all, he gave exemplary serviceâservice similar to that received at my initiation into the Sprint community. Once he figured that the port was more than likely the issue, he directed me to a close repair store.
From Store #893, I traveled to Store #218079, where the activity was at an all-time high. There were plenty of people there receiving help and I patiently waited my turn. Once the phone was in the hands of the associate, I explained that I really needed my phone because I was due to travel home the next day. Where is home? Home is approximately 7+ hours away from my residence in Spring, TXâ hence why I did not WANT but NEEDED my phone. He explained that I could either make a claim and pay $100 (again) as the deductible if I could not wait for the technician to look over the device, or I could wait 2 hours then they would order the phoneâ I was informed that it would be 3-5 business days before I would receive my new device (even after explaining that I would be leaving to go out of town). Meanwhile, I am staring at a phone that will not be able to be utilized due to the phone not holding a charge. I pay for a service Mr. Whiteâ Did I expect more? Yes. Should I have received more? Yes. Am I am disappointed, more so than angry? You bet.
You see my issue does not entirely lie with this lack of customer service, because they attempted to be nice, but my issue with this company that has received payment for services that they have not rendered. After explaining that I would be leaving to go out of town, I fully expected that my phone would be delivered next day, or in the very least, I would be able to go to another location and receive the same phone within a 24-HR window only because that I was preparing for a 7+ hour long road trip where I utilize my phone for both emergency and navigational purposes.
In addition, my frustrations stem from the definitive lack of care. I live roughly 27 miles from Store #218079. Do you think that asked me if I would like to receive the phone to my home or perhaps a closer location? No. Do you think that I left that store feeling good about my commitment to this company? NO.
The customer is NOT always right. The customer is sometimes wrong. I see it every day. In this situation, not only did I have to change my vacation plans, but I also had to revise all of my travel arrangements with those corresponding plans. Within this incident, the customer was indeed right.
I did not want to accept that ânothingâ could be done. I got up the next morning (September 11, 2013) and said I will see if I can chat with an agent who may be able to tell me more information. This was approximately 33 minutes of my life that I can never get back. I was treated with horrific service. I was transferred to Assurion twice, denied access to upper level management, placed on hold for approximately 17 of those 33 minutes, and above all thingsâ my issue was never resolved. I have included the correspondence from your agents, as I did try all avenues of communication to get this resolved. May be you can help them in the future, both instances I was dismissedâ with NO resolution to my issue.
Lastly, I placed a call back to store #218079, and asked if I could speak with their District Manager or if there was someone else who could accommodate my request. After being placed on a brief hold from a representative who did not introduce themselves, I was told that my phone was scheduled for delivery tomorrow. This, after being told that ânothingâ could be done. This, after being without my only form of communication for 48 hours. To say I am âupsetâ would be the understatement of the year. You will notice that both in my phone calls, chat windows, and physical communication efforts with the staff of your company- I never cursed. I never raised my voice. I maintained patience. This one incident has forever tainted my view of this company. I know that an entity this size may very well never provide consistent exceptional customer service, but my days of no resolution, of ânothingâ could be done, of the client revising vacation plans due to this unacceptable service is a terribly hard pill to swallow.
As the overseer of corporate communication, issue resolution, and external relations, amongst a multitude of other duties, I fully expect for you to understand the power of one. I know, I know, I am just ONE customer. ONE insignificant portion of revenue. ONE negative review. Mr. White, I feel that you need to understand, as a man in your role for so many years does, that the power of one can fuel the voice of many. With my unfortunate events, one has to wonder how many other valuable consumers have received this poor service.
In closing, I would just like to state that my intention was to bring attention to an issue that will cost you. Providing poor customer relations for a paid service is unacceptable. I hope you have time to really read this letter. I hope your really understand my view. That was my sole intentionâ to bring attention.
Lastly, I would like to share
Nikki's response. I asked to be let out of my contract when they did not reimburse me or in no way to my knowledge thought that the horrible customer service and the lack of services was adequate:
Dear Ms. Bright:
Sprint is in receipt of the above-referenced rebuttal statement filed by Ms. Overstreet. We again apologize to Ms. Overstreet for any inconvenience she may have experienced while attempting to resolve her concerns.
As indicated within our previous response, we spoke with Ms. Overstreet on September 12, 2013. During that conversation, we explained to her that we were contacting her due to the e-mail that she sent to Mr. White. After Ms. Overstreet sent a second e-mail to Mr. White, we attempted to reach her again; unfortunately, we were only able to leave a voicemail message for her. We subsequently received a voicemail from her indicating that she did not want to be contacted unless we were going to honor her requests.
In our previous response, we stated that our Terms and Conditions of Service note that we do not manufacture devices that we may sell or that are associated with our services, and we are not responsible for any defects, acts or omissions of the manufacturer. The only warranties on the devices are the limited warranties provided by the manufacturer directly. Therefore, we respectfully decline Ms. Overstreetâs request to waive any applicable Early Termination Fee.
We have taken considerable time researching Ms. Overstreetâs concerns. After discussing this matter with the Executive & Regulatory Services team, I am confident that all of her issues have been fully addressed and resolved. Therefore, all subsequent inquiries will be met with the same response.
If Ms. Overstreet has new information that was not previously submitted regarding this issue, please contact me by calling the Executive & Regulatory Services department toll-free at 1-855-848-3280 or directly at (817) 215-3542. I am available Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Central Time.
Executive Services Analyst
Bottom Line: I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY.
MIDLAND, TEXAS -- About two months ago I switched my phone service to Sprint and have completely and totally regretted it. I went into the Sprint store and specifically told the sales clerk I needed better service then I am getting with AT&T. I work in the oil fields of west Texas and I was having problems with my phone getting a good data signal in a big portion of the area in which I work. The sales person showed me some great coverage maps showed Sprint having at least 3G in most of the areas I work.
So I switched my entire family to Sprint PCS. Unfortunately I did this right before going on a vacation. Also unfortunately for me I had read an old website from when Sprint had a 30 day satisfaction guarantee instead of the 14 day guarantee they have now (wonder why they shortened it?) I also let them buy back my AT&T phones as part or their technology entrapment... I mean buyback program. Let me state here that while I was unhappy with AT&T's coverage, when it did work it worked well. I could easily stream Netflix videos or read the news with AT&T's 3G on my iPhone 4.
As I said we went on vacation. We drove to Florida. There were places the phones worked great. There were places they didn't work at all. I didn't think much of it, after all I had seen a map showing the places I would be using the phone were all in great coverage.
So I get back to Texas and start to realize how bad my service really is. My home is nine miles outside Midland Texas and I find out my home is in a roaming area and I have no data connection (lucky I have WiFi or I would be completely out of luck) when the Sprint map clearly shows I should be in Sprint calling area and a 4G network area to boot. Not only that but my children s phones have stopped working. It seems if you go in and out of roaming too often a software glitch causes them to lock down. My son s phone has had to be fixed four times. Last time they erased all his apps and wallpaper doing it.
I would accept the fact that my home is in roaming (even though the map shows otherwise) if I got good service in town. My supposedly 4G town of Midland Texas has very little data coverage. I can t load a webpage at either local Walmart. No service at the mall. Sometimes 3G at work. No service downtown. The list goes on and on.
It is just as bad in other west Texas cities. Odessa Texas is as spotty as Midland. Andrews and Kermit are both horrible. In most parts of Andrews I can t even get voice service. The one place I have a little service is Wickett.
Remember I specifically told my Salesperson I wanted better service then AT&T. Sprint has known about these problems for a long time it seems. Everyday they have customers in their store complaining about these problems. One salesperson tells you they have two broken towers causing all this grief, but they can t tell you if or when it will be fixed. Another says that its because of the population growth here in west Texas, but Verizon sure doesn't seem to have a problem keeping up, and another says that Sprint is upgrading in the area and it is slow because of that, but it has been going on for months. All I know is I and everyone else on the unlimited data plan are paying for service we are just not getting.
The Galaxy IIs is a great phone but 90% or what makes a smart phone smart is lost without a data connection. CNN, Associated Press, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Andorra Radio, Soundhound, Wikipedia and others are completely useless. So much for unlimited data. It is like paying for a buffet and not getting to eat. Unfortunately my family will be paying for this buffet for two more years. Its not right.
Greetings Mr. Johnson,
I hope this email finds you well.
After years of what is exampled in summary below, I want to terminate my line with Sprint. I have made two phone calls this morning to Sprint, have been disconnected one time. I called from a land-line in the call center where I work, and can only surmise that the call was disconnected by Sprint, not dropped or lost.
I have been advised this morning that at this point that Sprint does not seem to be willing to waive the $160.00 early Termination Fee.
Let's do some math, we have been Sprint customers for 6 years, or approximately 72 months, give or take. We have paid, on average, $130.00-$140.00 per month to Sprint over that duration. That sums up to $10080.00, or thereabouts. We have purchased multiple devices at full prices as well, rather than simply taking advantage of free upgrades. We have, in the distant past, successfully referred friends and family to the Sprint/Nextel network. All in all, we have been good customers, albeit late in payments at times.
I am not interested in paying the $160.00 Termination Fee, and if this is my only option, than both my husband and I will cancel our lines, and Sprint will lose any future revenue from my husband, who intended to keep his account active despite it all. Beyond that I will post this letter on the internet in every possible venue and forum, and will post the many, sordid recorded interactions with Sprint to my YouTube page. I understand it is not classy to make threats, and I loathe having to do so. Unfortunately I have no choice in the matter, since no reasonable concessions have been offered. I'm truthfully sorry to be ugly to you and your compatriots, I just want to drop my line, and being penalized for it after spending well over 10K as a customer, well, that's bad business.
To whom it may concern:
I have been a Sprint customer for about 6 years, and I absolutely cannot wait to terminate the relationship. I will spare you as many of the details as possible. Suffice it to say, over the years the service has been low average at best, and very disjointed. Each time a simple situation would arise, (activating a new phone, purchasing an upgraded phone, swapping out a phone, getting a return envelope), it required hours and hours of dealing with Sprint employees, many of which are unfriendly and inefficient. There is no synergy between departments and I never felt any true concern from any representative or supervisor or tech that I have dealt with. I actually get a little sick to my stomach when I know I have to call and deal with Sprint for any reason, I push it off until the last possible moment because it is always so unpleasant; you have to be ugly in order to get the help you deserve.
Here are some of the issues we have dealt with over the duration:
● Sprint sending replacement phones that were broken themselves.
● Sprint unable to activate my brand new, upgrade phone, telling me it was because my MSID # had already been assigned to someone else. How was that possible on a brand new phone? After 3 hours some supervisor figures it out and activates it in 10 minutes.
● Sprint putting an 80$ credit on our account without our permission or awareness in order to ‘sell’ us an upgraded phone. This caused major billing issues later, which required hours of my time to rectify.
● Sprint sending me a Nextel phone for my free upgrade, only realizing when I called to activate it that it was not a device compatible with our Sprint plan. Another night of talking to Sprint for hours.
● Local Sprint stores refuse to ship back defective devices. Local Sprint stores unable to assist in matters beyond simple new plan/upgrades and purchases.
● Sprint billed us 275$ for unreturned equipment, on a phone they are selling for 179$. Not only is that ludicrous in itself, but there is another example of Sprint’s poor service. Our HTC Hero stopped working, so we took it to the local Sprint store. They advised us it was broken, and arranged for a replacement phone and return kit to be sent. They would not, at the store, take back the defective device. The phone and kit came, and within the 30 day return window, we called Sprint to let them know we had lost the return envelope and needed another. We were on the phone with Sprint reps for hours, and after several attempts to ‘email’ us a new return label, there was still no success. The area where the image of the label should have been was blank, with a small red X in the top left corner. We were advised the situation would be elevated. Nothing happened. We went again to the local Sprint store and tried to return the Hero, they would not take it. We went again to the local Sprint store when another employee was working, and he agreed to call customer service for us. Again a new return label link was emailed, this time directly to the Sprint store employee. When he tried to open the label, the image again was missing. He told us they would elevate the situation, again. Last thing he said as we were walking out was ‘Good luck with that’. When we got home I called customer service, and after 2.5 hours, 5+ people, and repeating my story about 8 times, we have this solution: Someone in the ‘tech’ department is supposed to physically mail us another label, today. Also, we have been billed 275$ plus tax for this phone, and won’t see a credit for that until our next bill. Both of these solutions require me to do work, and follow up, versus Sprint doing those things for me. I have no choice, my money is at stake here.
There is nothing anyone at Sprint could even do or say that would prevent me from cancelling my contract. I have an estate in probate that will pay out soon and dumping this company will literally be one of the first things I do.
I have been a Sprint customer since 1997. Every time you changed a plan you had to renew your contract. So I stuck with Sprint all these years. I had my parents phones on my line. I lost my father in April of 2006. I called Sprint they kindly removed his phone from my line without charge. Then October 2006 I lost my mom suddenly and they refused to remove her phone because it was under my name. So I kept her phone activated. I was also keeping it activated to catch anyone calling her line to tell them the news. I missed a lot of people when she passed because I did not have a clue who to contact.
Flash forward to earlier 2009. I transferred my main line to my husbands plan over at Verizon to save money. I had to keep the spare phone activated through Sprint. I was paying under $35 a month with taxes. I used it 1 month out of all those yrs when my sister came to visit from out of state. I called when I transferred my other phones to see when my contract ended with it so I could transfer it to Verizon to keep it activated for the number because I was still getting those random calls asking for my mom. I had it in my head it ended November 29 rather than January 29th. I've been trying to contact Sprint to try to see if I could pay them the 2 months I owed them. They kept sending me a bill for 220.00. I've been calling since it happened and get no where with no result. Now I've been sent to a collection agency threatening to ruin my credit unless I pay them. I called Sprint right after and tried to get it settled AGAIN. I got a "ticket" put in the system for review. I've been offering to pay them the 2 months since it happened.
I think its unfair and greedy to want 220 vs 70 which I would have paid. They offer a prorated termination fee now since November of 2008 when I was still with them but they won't extend that service to me because I was a customer before it changed. Yet when their stuff changes before we are automatically put on contract without notice. When I signed up it was 150 then it went to 200 without telling me.

She said if there's nothing else I am disconnecting now and hung up!!!
NORWALK, CONNECTICUT -- I ordered a supposedly BU Morgan Silver Dollar from PCS Stamps and Coins several months ago. I finally received the coin which was sent in a plastic encapsulated coin holder with the designation of BU by a nondescript coin company. Two days ago, I received another UNSOLICITED Morgan Silver Dollar, also encapsulated, with a designation of BU-they also sent a bill of $90.00 for the coin which I never requested in the first place!! This company which advertises in many coin magazines fails to stipulate that any order from them will result in receiving additional coins without your knowledge.
METRO DETROIT, MICHIGAN -- In approximately January of 2012 I contacted Sprint PCS to find out why my monthly bill was increased. I was told I was losing a service credit and that it was not currently being offered, but to check back in February 2012, as the credit could potentially be offered. I was very upset as I was not informed of the change and as a long time customer (over 10-15 years), wanted to know why this was arbitrarily dropped without my knowledge. The representative apologized and indicated that she could offer me a one time $100 credit that would be applied to the bill. I grugingly accepted, indicating to her that it was not the same as my currenty billing, as this $100 credit was not the same as my monthy payments, and would soon run out. She asked me to check back in February. I called back in February, and explained the situation, and asked about my billing and was basically told the same thing, that the service credit was no longer being offered. I indicated to the customer service as well as the retention staff that I would not be renewing, as I didn't like the way this situation was being handled for a loyal long-term customer.
Early in May of 2012, I was online, reviewing my account, and noticed that someone had renewed my out of contract account; without my knowledge! I immediately phoned customer service about this and was told that, the person who issued me the $100 credit on my account, did this. I was outraged! The customer representative never explained to me that she was renewing my contract for an additional year, in exchange for a $100 credit; I would have never accepted! To make matters worse, the representative I spoke within May said that if you give us the $100 back, we will place your contract in "out of contract" again! Oh my goodness, what a sleazy proposition. I indicated to the service representative that it was not the condition under which I accepted the $100; it was a retention act, as I knew it...nothing to do with the contract.
I am very close to reporting this to major media as well as the Better Business Bureau...I think you call what they did to me, bait/switch...how unethical!
Purchased support tech from AT&T
Internet explorer canÃ¢ÂÂt display the web page. When I close a internet window I get a message that internet explorer has stopped and it repeats itself twice even after I closed it the first time. Before using AT&T/ tech I could customize any brief case that I created after I can not, but I still can only on the ones before the tack worked on my computer- I-cans on my desk top will move from one point to another without my prompting, not all of them but just one or two., without my prompting. Some times after closing a program, I will see my Acer welcome center program come up, again this could only happen with me pointing to it and opening it. And it is not on my desk top, but it opens.
When I am playing a game with my son, the scream will minimize or maximize by itself, it will pause without my prompting, and even end by itself for no reason.
When I open up my bible verses for study, if I leave it open in one window and go to another. When I return the verse has been replace, or the entire verses that I had opened will be reduced to just one verse.
The above and more just seems to work by there selves, without me doing anything. Still my home page will change without my doing anything, nor requesting a change. Windows open when I reboot my computer, only for a second or to but I do see them open. I will get two pointers that will open,, and sometimes the a page will change all by itself.. Playing real player once opened and music started, pointer will freeze. To this date I have had only two blue screams.
On one of my sessions with AT&T support tech, the tech started to work by remote access, but to my surprise the tech was working in the back grown, and I was not aloud to see what he or she was doing.
After the session I call back and talk to someone and asked if a tech was supposed to work on my computer in the back grown where I could not see what was going on the response was no. and the supervisor wanted my permission to used what happen as a teaching tool for the tech.
There has been so many subject of concern using AT&T support tech. from the fact that they will remove a tool box from my computer, and when I ask why they say that some tool bars can cause a virus, but when I tell them that tool in question was Norton secure sight they only apologies, and return it to my computer. I have had techs pretend to be supervisors, when they were not. I have ask why when I ask a tech how can I save the tech chat they tell me one and all it does is close the session, without saving, nor allowing me to save it. On my last chat I tried to save as much of the chat as possible, but the tech kept logging out the session, and when the tech return what was said before was not lost. But I did try to save as much as possible. Note. I have had four tech supports this is the only part of one tat I could save. But each time they work on my Acer it gets worse, and they never seem to except blame for there actions.
This started around 1.oo pm today but we got disconnected twice and when we reconnected this it the new time, and was all that I could retrieve of our session.
The line above was added by me.

6:42 PM Angeleena Grant (Remote Specialist): In every computer there will not have a customize option for the briefcase. Only the files and folders saved in briefcase can be customized. That is why you are able to customize the folders inside the briefcase not the briefcase.

The above was a 7 hr. support, and all of my others have been no shorter that 6 hrs.
When I call to speak to a supervisor, I would be told that they would have one call me back. Even when I ask for a web sight, or a phone no. so that I could complain.. No one would give me the web, nor the number in which to call someone.
I have had my Acer for about 6 mounts, and each time AT&T support techs work on my computer they leave more things wrong that before I call. I have a computer now that runs slow, does things by itself .. They advertise that there techs will keep my computer running without all the problems that I have indicated above, and they say that they will keep me from getting virus, or if I get one that they can remove, and restore my computer back to where it was. They have place McFee on to my computer, but when I asked them if two anti virusÃ¢ÂÂs can be running at the same time. When the tech wanted to install it he said no. but when I call back and question if two could be running I was told that AT&T never install one. Yet I did see McFee on my computer before I call, but after I ended the support tech session it as not there the pointer stills freezes up when I am trying to move it. My down load speed has change, to the point that its I sometimes impossible to down load music, or even play it. I have gotten no where dealing with AT&T support tech. , but I have money coming from my checking acc monthly, for a product that is only causing me more problems than before. My printer works when it wants to. At times the printer will cycle on and off for nor reason. Computer will freeze forcing me to shut it down and open it up again. And I believe that doing this has cause a problems with some of my printer drivers. USB ports work sometime, and sometime not. Over all I have a computer that I have only had for less than a year, and after purchasing AT&T support tech package, m my computer is worse off than ever..
OAKLA ND, CALIFORNIA -- I have been a loyal Sprint customer since 2003. But because of their consistently fraudulent charges, bad customer service, and last but not least, dishonest charges on my phone bill
for calls I never made which Sprint cannot provide documentation as evidence for, I cancelled my Sprintmembership by refusing to pay my bill and switched over to Verizon in 2008.
Sprint Is A Scam And I Will Prove It To You With Legal Documentation - Class Action Lawsuit Against Sprint PCS 2010
If You Did Not Get A Class Action Lawsuit Notice Against Sprint PCS, Please go to Google and type "Sprint Lawsuit" and you will see what I am talking about. You can get a hold of me if you want by replying to my post and I will help you the best I can because I am in this Class Action Lawsuit against Sprint for the crime they committed against me.
Now does this sound ethical to you? When was the last time you got a phone bill from your cell phone company (Sprint) that doesn't show the itemized charges for every single out-bound call that you make? That is the big problem I had with Sprint in 2008 which was the year I canceled my service by refusing to pay for the outlandish bogus charges on calls I never made. I will prove to you with documents that the Sprint complaints are valid and they are in fact a scam. I am urging everyone not to do business with Sprint anymore if you want to avoid the hateful feelings of anger and resentment that they have instilled in me for a long time.
My name is Billy Loi of Oakland California and Sprint knows who I am. I am not afraid to reveal my identity for the crime they have committed on innocent people like myself and others. And like I predicted, Sprint was recently slapped with a class action lawsuit for fraudulent charges...LOL..They got what they deserve. I just got my 2010 class action lawsuit notice in the mail which I am in the process of filing so I can get a refund of those fraudulent charges in excess of $1,000.
Please Pay Close Attention To My Unbelievable Story On How Sprint PCS Screwed Me Over To The Point Where I Couldn't Sleep For Days Because of Emotional Distress
Not only did they have the audacity to send my bill to a collection agency to ruin my credit, they did the most unthinkable crime to human kind that no one can ever imagine. Would you like to know what they did to me that will make your blood boil over?
Do You Remember The Sprint Promotion For $99 For Unlimited Calling Where You See The Pathetic CEO of Sprint Boasting This Promotion As The Best Cell Phone Deal?
They stole that idea from Verizon. In case you are wondering, I am now a very happy Verizon customer. Why? Because unlike Sprint, Verizon provided me with an itemized listing of every single call that I have made going out. This way I know I am not fraudulently charged for calls I never made. What happened to Sprint? Sprint committed fraud by hiding those itemized calls so they can fabricate a number in thin air that you are supposed to pay. Fraud. Scam. Ripoff.
Did Sprint Give Me The $99 Unlimited Calling Deal When It Came Out After Being A Loyal Customer Since 2003? Unfortunately No!
This really angered me. After being a Sprint customer since 2003, Sprint finally launched their $99 unlimited calling promotion in 2008 because they were trying to compete with Verizon who was the first to drop their unlimited calling plan to $99. So you can see how desperate Sprint was trying to stay competitive. Prior to dropping the rates, Sprint's unlimited calling plan was $199. Can you see how outrageous that was. It wasn't worth paying that kind of money for unlimited calling.
So instead I purchased a block of time starting out at 300 minutes. This way if I went over my allowed minutes, I would be protected by the additional 300 minutes block of time. But unfortunately, in later part of 2007, I was exceeding my 300 minutes. So I got penalized with additional charges. I had no problem with that. I was content with that. As a matter of fact, a Sprint representative called me back to suggest that I buy a 700 minute block of time for safety purposes. I decided on 900 minutes instead just to be double safe.
During the early part of 2008, my average monthly call volume was in the 700 minute range. I remember very vividly that for three months in a row from February to April of 2008, my average calls never exceeded 800 minutes based on the average 700 minute range I was in. And I know it was only that time in my life when my call volume was at its peak because of some important business I had to take care.
But Guess What Happened? You Are Not Going To Believe This. It Nearly Gave Me A Heart Attack
In the month of May of 2008, I got my Sprint bill showing that I went over the 900 minutes by 200 minutes!!! I already knew right away that Sprint was fraudulently charging me in excess of 500 minutes. What the hell happened? And what was really aggravating as I explained my problem to a Sprint sales rep, they never provided me with an invoice billing showing those out-going calls I have made. I am a reasonable person. If Sprint could provide me with evidence of those calls, I would have paid it happily. But did Sprint step up to that challenge? Sadly no!!
I Made This Challenge To Sprint - But Sprint Didn't Have The Guts To Step Up To My Legitimate Challenge
I dared Sprint to provide me with documented evidence that I did go over the 900 minute mark. Would you like to know what the results were? Nothing. All I got was a bill just showing that I talked for 1,100 minutes and they cannot provide the documentation like Verizon to show every single out-bound call that was made for the month of May of 2008. Is this fraud or what?
I even told them that I would be willing to pay those bogus charges if they can show me the proof. But unfortunately, they didn't have any proof at all. As a result, I cancelled my membership and enrolled with Verizon. The next thing you know my unpaid Sprint bill was sent to a collection agency. They ruined my credit by committing a huge crime against me: fraudulent charges!! That is why I am taking all my energy to write about my horrible experience dealing with Sprint.
After Being A Loyal Sprint Customer Since 2003, Did Sprint Offer Me The Unlimited Calling Plan for $99?
Unfortunately, the reps told me "No" because I was already locked into the old plan and as a result, I had to pay $199 for unlimited calling. They had the nerve to tell me that the $99 unlimited calling plan was only good for new customers. Is this a scam or what? This is how they treat they loyal customers? This is outrageous!!
Let me repeat this one more time so you can really understand this really clearly. If you were a Sprint customer before the $99 unlimited calling plan went into effect, Sprint told you that you were stuck at the $199 plan until the time of your renewal. Only new customers benefited from that new promotion. This is the ultimate crime against human kind I have ever heard in my life.
Are You Aware That Sprint Has Recently Announced Their $69 Unlimited Calling Promotion? Guess Who They Got That Idea From?
You guessed it. Verizon. Verizon was nice enough to offer me the lower cost plan despite I was in their higher cost plan of $99 unlimited calling. Verizon knows how to treat their customers right by allowing everyone of their customers to take advantage of any discount that is being offered through the promotional airwaves. Did you noticed that they did not restrict their offers only for new customers? Every one benefited.
Where was Sprint when I needed them to make me this same kind of offer? That is why Sprint is the worst Cell phone company in the world with bad customer service in which your customer service calls get disconnected on purpose. Have you heard of sales reps asking you for your phone number just in case you get disconnected? Sprint never returned my phone call every time I tried to resolve a dispute with them and got suddenly hung up on for no reason.
At least, Verizon would have returned your phone call. Why is this important? Because it takes a lot of energy and time to explain your problem to an agent and then when you get hung up on, it is frustrating to have to call Sprint again to have to explain the same problem over and over again to a different call center agent. Is this frustrating or what? This is the kind of bad customer service experience you would have with Sprint.
As You Can See That Everything About Sprint Is Bad. The Only Thing Good About Sprint Is They Get Less Dropped Calls. But my question is this? Is the so-called wonderful Sprint service of getting less dropped calls worth the agony of getting ripped off and bad customer service?
I already have completed the Class Action Lawsuit form and in the process of submitting it back to the Settlement Agents who are handling this Sprint Lawsuit. My advice is to stay far away from Sprint as possible. If you have been a Sprint customer since 2007 and did not receive your class action lawsuit form against Sprint, please reply to my post so I can help you.
Sprint is going to go out of business. It is just a matter of time of how many people they continually to piss of in the process.
