So I call Boost and speak to them about the blackberry phone they have, when my 110$ I have no got damaged when it fell in water.
So After speaking to a sales rep, he informed me that the black berry was a great phone it works in our area and he highly recommended it!
So I purchased the cell phone before 4 pm.. Paid for the over night shipping because I care for my mother and am a Single mom myself, It was super important I get a new phone and QUICK! The phone didnt come the next day it took 2 days.
Still none the less I was excited to get my new blackberry! I turn the phone on and called boost to get the information transferred. (this was at 3pm) So after an hour the non english speaking person on the other end of the phone says, BTW this phone does not have coverage for your area, it wont work in your area. You need to move to jacksonville. Which is like 3 hours away! UHM ARE YOU JOKING?
He says no it doesnt work. Im like ok what now? he proceeds to tell me I have to pay to return the phone, and then they will give me a refund.
Im like by the time I actually get the refund and order a new phone because all my extra spending cash is now gone thanks to this little endeavor it will be like 2 weeks from now? And why should I have to pay to return this thing, your the ones who lied? and sold me a phone that you knew didnt work?
He sends me to his supervisor, who proceeds to tell me that maybe if I GOT A REAL JOB I COULD AFFORD ANOTHER $150 phone?!?!?!?! I freakin lost it. I cant believe someone who knows nothing about customer service would even say something like that.. I work a 40+ hour week, am a single mom, take care of a household, 4 pets, and a Disabled Mother who had a stroke 5 months ago, and I need a REAL JOB? are you insane?
He then proceeded to hang up on me when I called him a pompus ### who needed a good ### whooping. Telling me that I WAS BEING RUDE! ARE YOU NUTS? SERIOUSLY??!?!!
So then after all this, I speak to about 15 more reps, everytime I called I would get you are being transferred then a woman recorded voice came on that said THIS NUMBER IS NO LONGER A WORKING NUMBER and gave me sprints number. When I called Sprint they were baffled by this, but non the less tried to help, but couldnt!
THen after finally getting through to boost again and bbeing hung up on because of their inability to transfer or place you on hold properly!!! I was told that under no circumstances were they going to pay for the return shipping or even let me swap phones by sending me one that works with a return label in the box..
THEN they proceed to tell me that they wont close my account and refund me the money that is in there. THeir excuse is they are a prepaid company.. UHM YEAH, so is Dish and Directv and if I close my account with them they send me what money I PAID UPFRONT! And considering it holds money in your account, I want a refund.. If I walked into a grocery store told the cashier to keep my change, and 3 days later came in took a candy bar and walked out, do you think the police who arrest me would say well you prepaid so its okay? No they would lock my butt up!!
Dont ever use this company! They are liars, conartists, rude, and completely ### of the earth!
They took advantage of a caregiver, with bills to pay, and a child to care for, to line their own pockets!
I hope they rot in hell! and all my friends I referred, there are about 20 of them, are going to be getting rid of their service as well.. So Boost can kiss my grits, Ill go get a contract phone. SCREW THIS!
