BEST BUY DOESN'T SELL iphone 8 International Unlocked phones at all....Clarify???

[ Edited ]

To whomsoever it may concern,

I ordered a Iphone 8 for my friend in India on Nov 19th 2019 and planned to take it with me during my vacation. 

I was told by my friend that the phone doesnt work stating that the SIM IS NOT VALID and is not supported under the activation policy. 

 

I did send email on Dec 10th to Best buy attaching the bill copy and screen shots of these messages which came when we tried to enter using the India Sim card. I can provide all these screen shots,email and bill copy on request. 

I contacted my friend in the US to contact the Best buy customer care and we have recorded the chat conversation (12/13/19) which they had from which there was no useful information given to us. 

 

FInally im back here in the US and went to the best buy store , only to get very poor response from the Customer service desk. I spoke with the customer care number which they provided yesterday(01/03/20) and i was told that there are tow variants 

1. US unlocked phone & 

2. International unlocked phones. 

The agent very clearly said that BEst buy doesnt sell International unlocked phones at all... Which is surprising and not specified anywhere in thier website or any brochure.

She also specified that they have got many complaints in the past from customers hwo bought these unlocked phones beleiving that they are International unlocked phones and took it to India and raised complaints that this did not work. 

 

My Questions to BEst buy is..

1. What steps have you taken to educate customers to know that there are two variants like this? 

2. If you have recieved so many complaints in the past on the same issue , did u just wash away you hands stating that you have bought this phone and yo uhave to live with the issues.....

3.  When i go into you website and search for iphone Unlocked phones... many phones appear,,, No wherer it is specified that the phone WILL NOT WORK OUTSIDE US.... WHY???

 

Im sending this email hoping that no one in the future gets affected with this issue believeing that they have bought the right phone considering the volume of Indians staying in the US and so many phones being purchased without knowing this. Im requesting an honest reply on how to rectify this...

 

Regards

I can't activate my phone.

[ Edited ]

Hello! I need your help. Bought 11/20/19 in BestBuy phone as a gift to my son for the new year, for the full cost and the advice of your specialist that the phone will work in another country. When unpacking it turned out that the phone does not accept SIM cards of my country. An Apple specialist advised you to contact BestBuy. There is a purchase receipt {removed per forum guidelines}, the refund period has expired, it is not possible to return it in person. Please help in solving the problem. the holiday is ruined, the son is upset. It's been so long, and we can't use the phone. With respect , Eduard.
