Last month my ear piece jack went out, the phone was less then a year
old and I do carry the replacement insurance on it, but in my case it
made no difference. They replaced my phone no questions asked, the
tech reprogrammed my phone directory; which they do, but he also moved
all my ring tones and other stuff from the phones browser. I had
little trouble with them when the phones went bad, but moved when the
merger went through because I had had major problems with GTE
Moblenet, and at the time I was with GTE California. I got so made at
them, I told the rep I was talking to, I wanted to speak to the
President of the company, what was strange is they transfered me and
was talking to him.
I told him my problem and he fixed it, but I still dumped the service.
