I'm on my 3rd Samsung intercept and they want to send me a fourth. I use this phone for both personal and business.
Because of the calls not coming in, voice-mails not received, lost/missing texts, inability to make or receive calls, days talking to Virgin-mobile; I have lost sales and business, not to mention the cost of my time dealing with this awful company. The reps are ill-mannered, incompetent, unable to listen, have no authority, are drones and ineffective. I have been disconnected 3 times when requesting a manager. I refuse to take a 4th phone of the same type.
I've paid phone insurance since 2010 about $120, then had to pay a $65 deductible for 1st replacement (by the way the Intercept was $200 when I bought it; it now cost $99..you do the math). I requested another phone where I could use the $65 towards an upgrade...since their phone WON'T work. The upgrade cost $200...so if the $65 was used I would still be giving them $135 more. However, that was not an option.
Of course, I will take my business elsewhere.
Found Straight-talk $45 unlimited everything plan LG Optimus Q $180. DON'T get sucked into the propaganda that Virgin-mobile is the only one.
