I have contacted Virgin Mobile stores and they have not had batteries. This is why I was very specific in asking them to provide me with a store that could sell me this particular battery. I know how to look up stores. I know how to order batteries over the internet. I WANT TO BUY A BATTERY FOR MY VIRGIN CELL PHONE HERE IN THIS CITY!!!! This information was never provided. What an absolute waste of time.
My guess is that someone in customer service pasted in some stock phrases and turned my reuest around in 20 seconds and this made their metrics look good. What an excellent, efficient CSR we have! - Who is not providing the service requested, by the way. I just wanted to let the general public to be aware that they will encounter this kind of garbage in trying to get help from Virgin Mobile.
This reviewer shared experience about poor customer service and wants this business to "we are sorry, you are right, we dropped the ball. give me location where i can buy the battery or explain that i will just have to find a place to buy it on my own". Mark0101 is overall dissatisfied with Virgin Mobile. The most disappointing about virgin mobile internet service at Virgin Mobile was no info about where to get replacement batteries , but reviewer liked website very good richard branson owns it good prices. Reviewer wants customer support to reach our to him or her ASAP for further discussion of this matter.
