My battery life sucks on my GS3. And I have no apps on my phone besides the ones that came with it. I have been a sprint customer for nearly 5years. And no one has tried to help me! Weres the customers satisfactory so i called sprint because I took off the insurance plan because they were trying to charge me 150$ for a 3rd party insurance fee for a refurbished phone! I said kiss ass dude. So we pay all this money for insurance added onto the bill to get sent a refurbished phone and pay a fee to get it like wth is going on! Does anyone agree!
Yeah but car , health and home insurance dont give you a refurbished item that already been sent in due to problems already .
sprints refurbished phones are phones that have been sent in and returned due to issues all the techs do is master reset them and make a call , receive a call , test incoming out going texts and jump online if that all passes , they put a sticker in the battery compartment with the date printed on it showing when It was refurbished and tested...so 30 seconds of testing is NOT real life usage ... thus those problems will come back again and then result in another customer having to deal with someone else's old problems before they had to return it..
Im sorry but when a customer buys a nee phone and pays insurance on it and of some unfortunate happens and needs to be replaced shouldn't be given a used pos..n should be a new one.. just kike T-Mobile does
if you jump ship and go to either verizon or att you'll be dealing with the same insurance company...asurian..they all deal with them..
bluedevils2003 When I get off work I am a customer as well so I understand where you are coming from. Sprint follows industry standard when it comes to refurbished and replacement devices. You don't have to take my word for that either just do a Google search comparing cell phone company policy's. With that said on my end as a tech I can tell you about 87% of the devices we get back from customers have no problems at all. Most of the time the issues are with something software related or the customer tried rooting the phone, and when we refurbish a device with something like a cracked screen sometimes we're sending out device that were used for a week before the customer dropped and broke the screen. That's why I knowing both end of the spectrum don't think so negatively of refurbished devices and rather pay the insurance. In my case since I have a Galaxy Note 3 I'd have to $659 for a new phone if I wasn't covered and not in all cases is the device refurbished some cases do get new devices especially if your device is no longer in rotation or if we no longer sell the model. *Clyde Sprint Social Care
You better check what youre talking about
They do use Asurion to replace their phones also. Your claim and nonsense that you spew all over the forums is inaccurate. I was with AT&T and had to file a claim after dropping my phone in water last year and it was replaced with a refurbished phone which from my knowledge is a phone that has all the inside parts that are replaced and tested before being sent out.
Not being negative I'm being honest lets see Here's my list of phones and issues that landed me a replacement and ALL refurbished phones
- original HTC evo 7 replacements all refurbished
Finally after the 7th replacement they offered me a different device so I was excited and they basically upgraded me to the htc evo 3d... when it arrived and I went to put battery into phone guess what I seen ?... you guessed it a refurbished pos yet again.... guess how many replacements I went through with that device ? 4 again all 4 devices were refurbished
You would think after having 11 refurbished phone they finally just give a new phone...NOPE
I was actually thinking about dropping the insurance because it honestly don't help you in the long run...
for example you have n3 and have to pay 700 for a new one if you didn't have insurance so the deductible is what 200-300? Mean while 200-300 for a refurbished phone to me is a joke and dumb... smart people would just buy the phone out right at least its brand new and you know there's nothing with the phone and no one else has had it
plus if you have just say 4 issue's with 4 n3 refurbished phone's all those times you have to be on phone with a tech with very little if any experience , then wait times at a warranty centers to turn phone in , then more wait time to see what is wrong with it , followed by waiting for a replacement. .. all that time , gas , energy wasted and hassle by NOT ALL but most sprint cs reps /techs better off just buying a new n3 straight out
now your p**s poor example of someone only having a phone for a week and dropping it and the screen needs to be replaced .. ok.. so the phone gets screen replaced they do their 30 second test , stamp the sticker and place in phone and ready to go... now here's the problem the phone its self was still dropped , that's not good for any electronic period ... and if you don't see the problem of replacing a screen with a phone that's been dropped and only been tested for 30 seconds and a quick over look then there's something wrong with you and sprint ... you all and we has consumer's know dropped electronics are trashed and be tossed out and not be a quick turn around buck for sprint this just shows how inconsiderate sprint is...
common sense the phone was dropped it should be automatically tossed in the garbage not ripping customers off
Now to anyone else reading this I just upgraded my 3rd line from best buy ... please drop your insurance with sprint and get it through best buy way better , friendly cs reps/techs and more specials on upgrades. as well you get 3 claims per year with best buy , rather then just 2 from sprint and they will replace your phone with a NEW one as well
Just upgraded to s4 for $1.07 at best buy... sprint still wants like $99 for it and $49 for a s3 lmao $49 for a 2 year old phone gtfo ... jfyi s3 free at best buy
How do I know this ? Just bought s4 last Saturday and I accidentally dropped my phone didn't damage phone cosmetically but did something inside .. ( didn't tell best buy that )
they couldn't find issue , couldn't fix it ...BAM NEW replacement phone no cost
thank you for reading my concerns , problems , FACTS and helping best buy
you all have a wonderful day and enjoy your day
You got ripped off then..lol.. they seen you coming!!! friend just got his s5 replaced last week after dropping it down a flight of stairs .. replacement came in brand new box phone battery and accessories
p.s stop trolling me and I wasn't even f**king talking to you thanks
