    The evolution of a thread.

    I preordered an I phone 6 from the AT&T store this morning. They told me delivery would be about 30 days. When I received my Order Status email it says 11/9/14 - 11/27/14. That's way longer then 30 days. I wouldn't care that much, but I'll be out of the country and would not have ordered it if I knew it was going to take so long. I went back to the store to talk to the guy who sold me the phone. First he had to talk to the manager, in the back for about 10 minutes. Strategizing would be my guess. Then he came back with all kinds of excuses and showed me a piece of paper showing me that yes, delivery will be 11/9 to 11/27. He seemed very embarrassed and nervous about the whole thing. All this time, I hear them telling other people that delivery will be about 30 days. When they clearly know that it will be twice that time or more. Beware of AT&T. I'm thinking about cancelling and changing carriers.

    AT&T store is lying to people about iPhone 6 delivery dates.

    Another route you could take would be to not be so wrapped up in giving Apple your money for the latest gadget.
    If having the features of the iPhone6 were really that important, you could have bought several different Android based phones two years ago.

    ^ This isn't a thread about which phone or company is better. I'm just letting people know my experience at the AT&T store.

    On the AT&T site, if you try to purchase the iPhone 6 there, it clearly states that it wouldn't be shipped out until November so it seems like its just an employee that didn't know.

    I pre ordered two Gold versions through Walmart. I was the first one to do so at that particular Walmart. Store manager told me that last year everyone who pre ordered received theirs the first day. Plus it was $180 and a $15 gift card. Gotta love WallyWorld!

    At least three employees told people that. They know, they aren't that stupid.

    I ordered mine this morning at 8 am standard time and it arrived at 4 pm mountain time to my door step. Go figure!

    And the employee promised it would arrive in 3 months. This is BS...an outrage I tell ya.

    You're missing out on so much culture. It's pure WT Americana at its best. Well, maybe not as the clientele is predominantly Hispanic now, even to the point that much of the merchandise packaging is done in Spanish. And in my local stores, the vast majority of the employees are Indian (curry, not casinos). But other than that, it's totally WT Americana at its best.
    And the deals! Where else can you find so much poorly made Chinese garbage for so cheap? Anytime you need an ill fitting shirt, sown together by an 8 yr old boy in a Chinese sweat shop, with last year's fashion design, just head over to Walmart! It's awesome!

    Are you trying to tell us you're a perfect fit for Walmart. Because, I'd kinda keep that to myself, if it were me.

    Time for an update: So, after canceling the phone for a second time at the AT&T store and getting a full refund, guess what the mail man brought me? Yep, a brand new 128GB Gold iPhone 6+. Thank you AT&T! So, I activated it, unlocked it and took it to T-Mobile. Where I now get a better plan, better signal and better customer service for less. And, a friend referred me, so we both get money back. Bye AT&T, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, because I didn't! Just in time for Europe!

    So instead of doing the right thing and returning the "mistakenly shipped" phone back to AT&T you kept it and went with T-Mobile for your plan. Isn't that basically stealing.

    But just imagine how much fun it's going to be when karma kicks MCS in the ass and he's here posting to whine about it. A good time will be had by all.

    I took my daughter to get the 6 @ Target with no issues. However, the mad rush has subsided.

    I still use the 4 for what it's worth and it works just fine.

    Perhaps I am in a minority of one here, but I have only had good experiences with AT & T, especially in the last 2 years. It seems they have made an effort to give good service, and to be competitive with other carriers. Maybe that is just in the store I go to, but three times now, with 3 different people, I have been very pleased with how they have gone out of their way to help me pay as little as possible for the services, when they could have just let me continue inefficiently paying more than I needed to. I have shopped around fairly exhaustively, and for me at least with my travel habits, they are as competitive as the next guy.
    And stealing is stealing, no matter how justified you feel in taking something inadvertently sent out.


    (Where's my 'good revue' discount AT&T?)

    I still use the 4 also, and I am very happy with that too. It would just be good to have better syncing between my phone, ipad and laptop, and I am a victim of the Apple hardware/software incompatibility roundabout
    It's all Here. Now.

    iPhone 3GS here. Yeah it's clunky but all I do is use it as a phone (rarely), and it was left over from my wife's prior upgrade to an Android phone so no additional cost was incurred.

    Did you not want to get throttled?

    Went to another link from the first about AT&T, and read: " the FTC estimates that at least 3.5 million AT&T customers were throttled some 25 million times since the program began in 2011."

    They make it sound so violent.

    MCS I think you are trying to justify what you did as legit.
    Shipping errors happen all the time. If you didn't pay for the product and it was sent to you by mistake it's not yours to keep.

    You guys must be confused. Nowhere did I say that I ripped AT&T off, stole the phone or didn't pay for the phone or anything along those lines. Do you guys really think that I would do that to AT&T? You know, you do have to take the phone to a store to activate it.

    You stated that you got a "full refund". And then lo-and-behold, a phone showed up anyway? So what really happened?

    Did you read the paragraph you wrote? The one DJ quoted?

    What other take is there on that, except that you ordered a phone, cancelled the order, got the refund, but hey, they sent me a phone anyway....yipee!

    Getting a refund and not giving the product back is stealing.

    No they are not stupid just wait til you cancel and see what your final bill is going to be.

    You guys, stop being trolls. Of course I paid for it. I had to, to activate and unlock it. Again , I never said that I didn't pay for it. I was just excited to use them to get a phone and dump them.

    Hey man I'm not judging you. I, for one, think you deserve your new free iphone.

That's way longer then 30 days. I wouldn't care that much, but I'll be out of the country and would not have ordered it if I knew it was going to take so long. I went back to the store to talk to the guy who sold me the phone. First he had to talk to the manager, in the back for about 10 minutes. Strategizing would be my guess. Then he came back with all kinds of excuses and showed me a piece of paper showing me that yes, delivery will be 11/9 to 11/27. He seemed very embarrassed and nervous about the whole thing. All this time, I hear them telling other people that delivery will be about 30 days. When they clearly know that it will be twice that time or more. Beware of AT&T. I'm thinking about cancelling and changing carriers.
    nope said you are thinking of cancelling

And, a friend referred me, so we both get money back. Bye AT&T, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, because I didn't! Just in time for Europe!
    so here you said you cancelled the order and got your refund only to get your phone. No where in here did you say you paid for it again.

    Yeah, I heard about the lawsuite as I was driving away from the T-Mobile store. I say good for those AT&T customers!
    you only start to mention paying for it here after people started to call you on it.

    Maybe you should read what you typed for yes you did hint you didn't pay for it and only mentioned paying for it after we called you on it. So who is being the troll.

    This is just the BEST thread! I was thinking about getting a new I-phone, but I was put off by the price of the thing. Now I know how I can get one for FREE!
    I'm pretty sure this forum is off ATT's radar.

    Thanks for the tip!

    The guy at the store did tell me it's been a problem, so it might work for you.

    And yes, I guess I did hint a little. But seriously, it's paid for. $1024, if I remember right. **** that's crazy!

    Oh, by all means, bash away. Here's something that pisses me off: one hour before my monthly billing cycle is up, I go over my allotted data usage. They automatically charge me for more data which I only have an hour to use. And it doesn't roll over into the next month. Everything should roll over. I paid for it, I should be able to use it when I want. And, on the app the usage isn't up to date like T-mobile. So, you never really know where you're at with your usage. ****ing *******s!!

    MCS is a long term, real life MTBR troll. He even lives not far away from me. Another member here who I am friends with had a negative run in with him once out on the trails we ride.

    You can afford it, but still, I'd invest in one of those rubber phone-condom thingies if I were you. I can't imagine a phone that size coming out very well if/when it gets dropped on a hard surface.

    the real kicker for me is, how much it actually costs Apple to have it made by the ChiComs.

    When I got my I6 I wanted the 62g but it was 3 months wait, so I got the 128g which was supposed to be a 5 day wait. When I checked the att ship status email it said 28 day wait.
    I was so PISSED! I called and ranted and raved but to no avail.
    Then 3 days after I ordered it the brown santa brought me my shiny new Iphone6.
    Luckily when I went to trade my I5s in I didn't have to deal with the guy that I yelled at for 20 minutes.

    Oh yeah, who would that be and where? Because, as stated before on these forums, I do 95% of my riding on private property where no else rides. And, I have yet, that I can remember, have had any, " run in" with another MTBR. So please, I would really like to know of this.

    I have to ask: Would you have shot him if he would have charged at you or would you have played it smart and hit him with the butt of the rifle?

    Now Hawg, we never refer to a shotgun as a "rifle"!

    It's a ..........shotgun. Or a scattergun. And a shotgun is also a certain passenger seat.

    There. I cleared everything up.

    I have no idea. You'll have to join in with the fans of that Facebook page for all the history. Then you can cross reference your Obsession: Dude Enough is Enough Facebook page for the timeline.

    No more random watches on display, please.



    I like AT&T. Partly because I get an 18% discount but I also get good service. Had Verizon and T-Mobile and none were awful, just had better service with AT&T for where I have lived and with the discount. Personally I think they are all pretty friggin magical due to the fact they provide a service so that we can talk, text, watch porn through little devices with no wires attached.

    No, when in on my phone or iPad that happens a lot, I don't know why. Next time I notice it I'll take a screen shot. And, there'll be two avatars on one post, it's really strange.

    And the deals! Where else can you find so much poorly made Chinese garbage for so cheap? Anytime you need an ill fitting shirt, sown together by an 8 yr old boy in a Chinese sweat shop, with last year's fashion design, just head over to Walmart! It's awesome!
    Where do you shop at Walmart? Ours is about seven years behind in style.

    And what is an ill fitting shirt? Nothing is ill fitting when you make sure to always buy two sizes larger at Walmart.

    Good Gawd man that hurts the eyes.
    The band is camouflaged to match the bench top which appears to match the floor tiles. What colour undies are you wearing, are they colour coded as well with brown blotches?

    For that crappy seat in the middle we would say "sitting on the hump". That was way, way back when there was the transmission hump running through mid-car.

    There are a lot of rodents on MCS' property obviously. He also wears CNC machined undies, as all the worlds' most interesting criminals do...

    I don't see any brown tiles. And yes, my undies with brown blotches that you ordered just shipped today. I packed then in a vacuum bag to keep them fresh for you.

    I bet anybody else that read that got the joke. Apparently you've been dipping your smoking pipe in the pile of asterisks. <<< more sarcasm if you need some explaining let me know.

    Go back to page 1 where Shawn gave us an update after 1.5 months of thread hibernation. Apparently he thinks it's alright to keep a mis-shipped item after a full refund was granted. In some circles that's called theft. He's been back pedaling ever since that post.

And, a friend referred me, so we both get money back. Bye AT&T, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, because I didn't! Just in time for Europe!

    Car Bone, you're badass if you like that watch! That happens to be my all time favorite watch. I'm hoping a used one can be had in about 5 years at half price or better. If u like watches check this blog out. I won one of their watch giveaways, the Mark Carson Ka La watch.

    If you can't seem to get it through your thick ****ing skull that I paid for the phone, either call AT&T, call the police or quit whining about it like a ****ing baby!! God damn, your like a little kid that won't shut up! In fact, call AT&T in Simi Valley in the Town Center. Ask Dan if Shawn, who is going fo Italy and Switzerland, paid for the iPhone 6+. If you can't do that to satisfy yourself, then shut the **** up! *******!!

    That's some funny ****. I wonder if the dates he presumably paid for the phone coincide with the theft and comments made in this thread.

    Backpedal and run in and pay for the phone after being called out in this thread.

    Shawn why all the hate towards me I'm just relaying what YOU said by quoting your posts.

    I'm with rockerc on this one. I've gone thru 6 phones, but only had AT&T as my service, I'm guessing for probably 10+ years. I think customer service is really good and the retail stores are fantastic. Each time I've gone into my local store, they've been super courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful.

    I also have their phone insurance thru Asurion. I've had to replace 3 phones over the last 5 years. New phone shows up in two days. No questions, no hassles, and now, no real paperwork, just fill out an online form. Boom, new phone, send back the old one in their prepaid box.

    The only hiccup I've ever had is they recently sent me a phone with the wrong OS, as I believed my phone was dirty so I washed it. I online chatted with ATT customer service, they actually called Asurion during the chat, bridged me into their phone call and I had a new phone 2 days later.

    My experiences with AT&T have been really good.

    Do you need a minute to pull yourself together.

    Lets get back on topic.

    You ordered a cell phone and paid for it. Then cancelled the order and received a full refund. Then a cell phone mistakenly was shiiped out. You received it in the mail then went to another provider for a better plan. You got a full refund and you received a phone all for free and on AT&T's dime. Is this in your world considered a gift or theft.

    I had to take the phone to AT&T to have it activated. I had to pay for it to have it activated. What do you not understand about that?

    The thing is MCS, whatever the truth is, you made it sound like you pulled a fast one on AT&T and got a free phone. Everything in your earlier posts was worded to make us all think that you were cleverer than you actually are. You were called on it, and you have been scrambling to regain some cred since then. I suggest you let it go, because the more you squirm, the worse it makes you look, and the more that terrier DJ will shake you by the jugular!

    Mountain Cycle Shawn...you got called out for making stuff up/outright lying about something. You dug yourself pretty deep in 5 pages of the thread.
    Further comments like this just make you look like an ass. Really. You're not 'getting the upper hand ' on anyone, you're just arguing like an 8 year old..

    You've gone from mildly interesting over the years to outright annoying. Yeah, you're "that guy" to many of us on the OC site.

    ^ I didn't lie about anything. Yes, when I cancelled the order, I got a refund. I failed to explain that to activate the phone I had to go to the store. And to activate it, I had to pay for it. I never dreamed that you guys would think I didn't pay for the phone. That would literally be impossible to do.

    then why…..

I suggest you let it go, because the more you squirm, the worse it makes you look, and the more that terrier DJ will shake you by the jugular!
    My point was that I used AT&T, which in my opinion has been a horrible company since changing from Cingular, to get the phone that I wanted and then dumped their ass for another company. That's why I said some thing like, "thanks AT&T". My point about the refund came from my disbelief that they would give me a refund and still send me the phone. But, Yesterday I talked to my uncle John, who is a top consumer rights attorney. He thinks they sent the phone on purpose, knowing that most people will keep the phone, activate it and have to pay for it, because the iPhone 6s are so hard to get. And, it's impossible to get a phone from them without paying for it. Your only options are to pay for it or take it back for a refund and the phone will find a new home before the day is over. So, he contacted the FTC, who is sueing AT&T, yesterday and talked to someone about that problem. One guy at the AT&T store told me that has been a big problem. However, even if I didn't pay for the phone, I'd have no problem taking a phone from a company that ****s it customers over. 99% of you would do the same if you thought you could get away with it. The fact that most of you are still giving me **** about this just proves that you are a bunch of hipocrite judgemental trolls with nothing better to do then bully someone everytime you get a chance, because it's the most exciting thing in your pathetic lives. I mean really, you guys are perfect angles and have never done something wrong or dishonest? The phone is paid for. All $1021.24 of it. If you choose not to believe me, I challenge you to do something about. Otherwise you can **** off!

    Rockerc: this isn't necessarily aimed at you, unless you feel it deserving. I will take your advice and stop feeding Troll DJ. In fact I will unsubscribe, so the trolls can continue to bash, judge and bully, because that's what gets them off.

    I know consumer law very well from my uncle. My point was that if a company sends something to you that wasn't ordered or the order was cancelled, you can't be forced to pay or send it back. With phones that have to be activated, AT&T has found a way around that. AT&T has turned out to be a very dishonest company.

    Let's just say that your'e not particularly strong on communication skills, then.

    Which amounts more or less to an indictment of public, and I suspect in your case, private education in this country.
    Which in turn is no surprise, if one simply looks at the competency skills of students and graduates i the U.S. compared to other countries.

    That would get you some serious rep with a certain element here on emptybeer.

    So again, you didn't pay for it.
