Sprint sux!! My rant.

I'd like to share my experience so far;

1. Ordered phones online (we have a 15% employee discount program)
2. Recieved a bill a couple days later(no phones yet)
3. Recieved phones a couple days later
4. After 1 week; #'s haven't ported; called them, (45 minute call) they had me "program the phone" and said they would port shortly.
5. 5 days later; no port yet, called again (45 min) they said it was an area code problem and they would fix it.
6. 5 days later; no port, I call and cancel contract (50min). They will send a return pkg 3-5 days and I will have to pay ~$45 for my "airtime" even though I did not use the phones at all. They put in a request to waive the $45 and said they would call me back.
7. 1 week later; no reply on the $45; no return package. I go to return them at the store since I was told I could. I was told at the store that I could not. The lady got on the phone with her "regional manager" and said they do not do that.
8. Called sprint; (1hr 13 min) They sent me return to store auths via email. I print, go to store, and again am told I cannot return. I nearly lost my cool. Made them call thier own cs and some csr said they do not do that, sorry....

This is by far the worst customer service experience I have ever had.

I should try to get my company (~170k employees) to cancel the sprint contract....

That's exactly why I paid to get our of my contract with them. I hated there customer service that much. It's a shame too because before the merged with Nextel, they had the best customer service.

Sounds Like operator error, always make sure the o-f-f switch is in the o-n position. Sprint Rocks. All else suck cocks.

Kidding. Their service coverage is the best, that's why their Customer service is in the worst, they know if your leave you get less coverage and probably end up coming back.
