Validating identity wireless error
And just because they are getting something FREE, they should get what they want. I am SO grateful that I actually have this service.
Yes, the phone I have SUCKS, but it is a phone and it works.
The program was originally intended to be a LIFELINE. It doesn't mean that you should get some kind of fancy phone, it means you have a phone.
I've dropped it several times, so I'm wanting to get another similar phone. Personally, I would call them in advance prior to purchasing a phone on my own to verify that it will work, and definitely try to get a transcript of that conversation. Oh yeah, one more thing, the obvious lesson learned. Well, about that Virgin Mobile-packaged Kyocera Hydro Reach I bought off e Bay, it will not work on AW's network. You can't buy it new anywhere except some folks peddling it on e Bay, and that is too "new". Oh, and to top off what a complete screw-up AW is, the sweet New Delhian suspended my service, as if I had lost my phone. I clearly explained that my phone (an older VM Samsung pay Lo) and service were fine, but the battery was no longer holding a lasting charge, hence the need for another phone.
This statement is in the AW FAQs:"The ZTE Quest is the recommended compatible Android smartphone that can be used on Assurance Wireless at this time. The friendly yet difficult to comprehend rep promised to send me a phone, a smart phone, to arrive within 7-10 days. Fortunately, I was able to restore it online.ughhhh!!!
I just lost my job of 22 years ON MY BIRTHDAY because I didn't return to work fast enough.
From Assurance Wireless' website, under FAQs: "For the best customer experience, we encourage you to use the phone sent to you by Assurance Wireless.The ZTE Quest, ANS UL40, Unimax 673, ZTE Tempo, ZTE Tempo X, Kyocera Hydro Reach and Coolpad 3300 are compatible.
What phone, other than the FREE Assurance Wireless phone, can I use with Assurance Wireless service?Other Assurance Wireless Android models (Coolpad 3300, Unimax 673, ZTE Tempo and Kyocera Hydro Reach) are also compatible."Don't believe a word of that. I bought a new Kyocera Hydro Reach from e Bay, relatively cheap purchase too. The Assurance Wireless FAQs state that this is a compatible phone. Perhaps I entered the wrong number (although I tried the 14 and 18 digit numbers), or perhaps my formatting was wrong. Yes, you can change to a different Lifeline provider.Has anyone else had success swapping phones online or did you have to call someone in India to make it happen??? Just make sure that you apply to the new one, tell them about your existing service, and they will transfer it over.Regarding the Unimax phone; I'm sorry, but I don't really understand what you're asking. It even screws up the "Launcher" screen (Home screen) when leaving saying the camera/text/etc area to go to the home screen it says there is a problem with the launcher. With my old pay Lo, I was on a 500 minute, unlimited text plan.Are you asking whether $25 is a good price for the phone? Hello, I've been with Assurance Wireless for about 2 months now. That is what these free plastic useless cheap phones are. And not a person in their right mind wanted to buy them. I am now on a 350 minute, unlimited text, and 500 MB data plan.I CANNOT believe that people who are getting something free, are complaining that they can't get some kind of upgraded phone and that they "deserve" one.
