Re: Sprints matches Big reds TP2 price!

For some reason the rep i spoke with stated that only a few of customer with get that price. Such as premier customers etccc.
Don't know if it true but that's what i was told

I did get the phone for $135 after MIR.

Hi! How are you?
4:08:20 PM Terrell
Im Ok Thanx for asking
4:08:35 PM Terrell
i recently purchased the htc touch pro 2
4:09:04 PM Terrell
and i was wondering why is it that verizon offers the same phone at a much cheaper price than what i paid?
4:10:16 PM Chanel R
The Verizon version and Sprint version are not the same. Sprint offers a different style and different network features other than Verizons network features.
4:11:06 PM Terrell
i understand that but for the most part its the same equipment..i paid almost $500 and they offer theirs for $199 that is a Huge Difference
4:11:41 PM Chanel R
I understand and I do apologize, due to the phone differences and style the price is different.
4:12:49 PM Terrell
Sprint Doesnt match competitors pricing?
4:13:27 PM Chanel R
We do not match competitor pricing.
4:14:00 PM Terrell
oh ok then...
4:15:19 PM Terrell
well thanx for you help and input i think ill check out verizons services because $300 is alot of money now days and i would love to take advantage of that price
4:15:32 PM Chanel R
I understand.
4:15:37 PM Chanel R
Do you have any further questions for me today?
4:15:45 PM Terrell
no that will be all thank you

OK, i told her

"i went into a local sprint store and they told me they will price match the verizon cost. the store rep told me since i purchased via telesales to call them and get it handled. so i called and telesales transferred me to you just now to get this taken care of. i told them since i was in the 30 days i would cancel my phone and just get it in a couple days when the promotion is active, but id rather not do that so thats why i am on the phone with retentions now..."

thats how the convo went. she put me on hold for a few minutes and came back and gave me a $150.00 credit. i paid 349 after the MIR PLUS i get a 39% discount due to the company discount i get, so i will come out looking really nice!

she will apply it to my next bill so i will wait and see..... yes this was nice of Sprint AND nice of verizon to offer this phone at that great price to begin with! this is why competition is good!!!!!
I used the exact same story and was shot down. The rep said she had to speak with her supervisor. When she came back she said that it was only for Corporate customers. I told her I already do get a corporate discount applied to my account. She said she saw that but it was a different type of corporate customer. Couldn't get her to budge. She offered to transfer me to her supervisor and I got his voice mail. Looks like Sprint is trying to burn us on this deal.

Funny. I am a premier customer and they told me it was only for corporate customers. When I pointed out that I receive a corporate discount they told me it was only for corporate customers who receive subsidized phones or government employees. Looks like they're changing their story to fit the customer just to avoid the price match. I smell a rat.

Re: Sprints matches Big reds TP2 price!

I sent an email off through ecare and got a response within 20 minutes. Here's the reply:

"Thank you for contacting Sprint regarding the credit against the Touch
Pro 2.

Unfortunately, we would not be able to apply any addtional credit
against the ' Touch Pro 2 ' charges due to system limitation.

We value your business and appreciate the opportunity to address your
concerns. Please reply to this email or visit Sprint.com/mysprint if we
can be of further assistance."

Not sure what a system limitation is. I hate dealing with people over the phone. I'll try chat next. If that doesn't work I call retentions.
