To whom it may concern,
I am reaching out to you guys because of a current dilemma that I am being faced with. In December I went into Best Buy to your Geek Squad department regarding my daughter’s pink Samsung Galaxy 7 cell phone. Since I had insurance I was able to pay my deductible and receive a replacement phone. However this phone that was sent to me is nonfunctional. Since I have received this phone it has brought nothing but trouble, meaning I have spent numerous hour on the phone, gone to four different Sprint stores and four different Best Buy stores including the one located in Torrance which is a bit over an hour from my location, precious time and energy in hopes to get this problem resolved only to fail. In the process of all this there has been nothing but fingers being pointed as to whom is responsible for the proper functioning of this device, Sprint blames Best buy and Best Buy states that Sprint should take care of the problem. Apparently the phone that was sent to me is for a prepaid account and therefor it cannot be connected. However, meanwhile I have been going up and down making appointments for different locations so that the phone can be properly fix the insurance expired and as a result I ended up with a phone that I cannot use and paying a monthly fee for its service. Now as a loyal Best Buy customer I feel cheated. I paid for a service which was my insurance and a deductible for a new phone and what happened, they sent me a nonfunctioning phone. All I am asking for is that you guys respect and honor the service I properly deserve, specially giving the fat that I did pay for; and not the response of: “well unfortunately your insurance has expired there is nothing we can do about it.” If you guys would have taken care of the problem the first time I stepped into Best Buy to tell them that the phone did not work and that it was incompatible with my account and cannot be connected I would not have been placed in this situation. I cannot fathom that this is the treatment/service that customers get here and cannot begin to explain my extreme frustration with the whole situation and to make matters worse I called corporate and they informed me that you guys do not have a human relations department and therefore I cannot submit an official verbal claim. Now I am writing this email so that my current situation can be mended.
