What time stores close in Roanoke va New year s eve
What s ur hours for black Friday November 25 , 2016
Tbh the service is okay but not that we say is great the phones suck after a couple months the start doing some wierd things and manfunctioning and the internet or the 4g symbol leaves and says there is no service and that sucks because i could be on spotify or snapchat or some app and it goes away and i really hate that but i guess it is oky i mean you should try to fix this problem because the internet goes away .
Read metro rearms u probably went over usage and it dropped your usage or your not in a 4g area. Plus if you get a $100/free phone it will happen most arnt over 8g and it will never run like an iPhone that s $800!
I needed a 48hr ext so I called metro pcs sat nigt and was told to call back after my phn was cut off on sunday I said are u open she said yes we are 24 hrs I literally called all day diff times of day and couldn t reach a live person Im so freaking livid..ive been with this company for over a year and to be told this .we should always be able to reach an agent metro pcs it is not that small of a company ..
Same thing happened to me except I lost my job because I did not have my phone MetroPCS is nothing but a bunch of lying rude inconsiderate things I WOULD NOT recommend MetroPCS to anyone EVER. They are a worthless phone company in don t care about their customers
It s prepaid- can t blame metro for you not paying on time-read terms and agreements it states it there.
I ended up using the 48hr extension a couple months ago did not need to talk to a live representative, got it done thru the automated system (this was after my cell was shut off, was back on immediately after I called for the extension)
What are your hours on easter day
I do not understand why you guys do not sale chargers separately. My charger that came with my phone broke within 3 weeks. And I have had the phone for about 2 months now. I be been using a different type of charger and bow my phone tells me my phone won t charge unless I use the charger it came with. This is absolutely ridiculous.
What time do u guys open in Rhode island
My campa don t. Work
I been wandering if u buy a plan with metro do u get a free phone 2 ?
I looking for a Metro pcs in the Harrisburg Pa. area. The ones that were open are now closed. And the one will not get the phones that are on sale. Two for fifty dollar. I m still looking. What s Up.
So i have to contact someone threw customer service and got no where they advised me to find a store that may be open today, when asked for a list of stores. They where u available to provide me with any..the rep advised that I drive around to a few stores and see if they re open before I call back for anymore help..i asked to speak with a superior and the agent hung up bad services all around.
Some /most stores are non corporate (anyone can own a store) so if they don t open they don t, they may get in trouble with the master dealer but they do not have to open -they lose money and possibly if done often the store will close.
Will they took money off my card wasnt supposed without me knowing still owe me fefund I had buy another phone as will they suck I be looking some where else after drama
I ve had the WORST service from this company. My little ones phone was stolen,I called to cancel the line they took 2 days to do that. Called the insurance for a replacement phone got it on the expected date. Called to restore the service said it would take 24 to 48 hours to have the storage restored, mind you they took the money pit of my account the same day the phone wasn t turned on for 5 days. I called every day multiple times no one could help me. They kept saying that on their end the phone was working. One of their csr reps even had the nerve to ask how did I know the phone wasn t working. Well hello I can t make or receive call s or use the phone period. Took it into a store the whole time it wasn t working was because of a mistake on their part they sent me the replacement with the WRONG sim card!! The guy in the store was able to fix that issue now I m having issues trying to download apps. I just spent an hour a half on the phone with a rep and she had no idea what she was going or how to solve the issue after all that time the best advice she could give me was to rake the phone to a store so they could try fix it. Plus I asked to be transferred to a supervisor I was left on hold for nearly 15 minutes never picked up the line this by far is the worst cellphone company I ve ever had. I should have just got him a line on sprint with my account.
This should be on a complaint website not hours
