damn AT & T!


I wanted to blog about my own opinion on Abati's article but the issue seems sufficiently criticised and my mood is not so wa pa.


So, I use a HTC Tilt that I got from AT&T last yr. It came with warranty cos it was brand new. Some mths ago, the external mic started to malfunction and I got a replacement fone 2 wks ago. I was even celebrating the advantages of getting a fone w/ warranty. Today, I received my old fone back with a ridiculous bill cos my old fone, the one I sent back, has a damaged faceplate. I mean it's just a little strip of the faceplate that is chopped off.


That's even btw, I can't even come to accept the ridiculous bill, which is more than what the brand new fone costs, all becos of some damn! terms and conditions.

I think I need to reignite my naija no-gree skills.

what do I do with two fones and a financially-inconvenient bill? fml.

I have been reading ish on fmylife.com to make my self better for like 1 hr.

RocNaija said...

The main problem you have is that if you even sell the old phone it probably wont pay for the bill you got.. lol

miss.fab said...

ahahn, are they mad. did you ask them to replace the faceplate???? please don't agree jare. call them up and be upset. phone companies hate losing customers so more than likely they'll accomodate you, even if just this once.

FML is that good stuff, lol. so hilarious.
