Comment And if they screw up, good luck getting it fixed (Score 4, Interesting) 331

I'm with T-Mobile right now. I give them credit for forcing the other carriers to at least pretend to lower the prices on their plans... but it's become apparent to me recently that the way T-Mobile does it is by not training their support personnel *at all*.

T-Mobile recently announced a plan called "10GB North America". It's 4 lines, each with 10GB of data, for $120. And if you sign up before Labor Day, it's $110 because the 4th line is free. Well, I'm having a dickens of a time getting their reps to figure out that there's no way this should amount to $191/month for our four lines (total bill was $226 or thereabouts, but we have one phone on the installment plan).

I have a job - I don't have free hours available to teach these bozos how 3rd grade math works. But I'm going to end up having to print everything out, take time off work, and get those printouts into one of their stores to get this fixed because their phone support and their Twitter support are apparently morons.

[citation needed]

In fact I'll save you the trouble, people have studied this and found the exact opposite.

While I agree with you, it's rather ironic that you started your post with "citation needed" but then made a counter-statement that isn't supported with any citation.

Isn't the FBI supposed to be trying to track down the person responsible for causing Katrina?

Iran has repeatedly blamed the US for causing various natural disasters that have befallen that country. Apparently the FBI knows something we don't...

If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization.
