My father has been dealing with his cell phone and having issues from the onset of purchase. His phone cuts in and out and you can only hear every third to fifth word, Best Buys solution has been to replace the sim card. This has happened on 3 separate occassions. A bandaid to stretch out the problem. Each time my father has went into the store to get technical support as he is in his 70s and is not technically inept to deal with the working of his phone. Last week he went into the store where again they changed his sim card. The in house support team could not help and was told to file a claim with geek squad so that he could get a new cell phone. He walked over to the inhouse Geek Squad and was told he would have to call a number. He did and was hung up on! So I called on Sunday from my own phone which is on the same Telus network my father is on with no issues and was told he would have to pay 200 service fee. This enraged me as I feel that it was pushed off until over a year as he has had numerous issues! Okay fine we will pay the fee. HE GETS his cell back with the NO ISSUES FOUND! You call my father you can only hear every 3-5th word. He is an elder and requires his phone in case of an emergency! He is paying for services from Telus or Geek Squad and is gettting no resolution to the problem. If he has an emergency this will be an escalated problem! As Best Buy is not providing him the service he has paid you for! Call my father's cell and see for yourself. I want this issue dealt with ! For the $200 service fee it definitely should have been! That is robbery to a person on a pension!
Please tell me how this can get rectified immediately

Ahh okay now I see you're in Canada. These forums are for Best Buy USA.
For assistance with the purchase from Canada go here
I figured you were from Canada and mentioned Telus.
