Re: not registered on network

You sounded like you were going to fix the fix the problem right here and now, but u didn't instead you direct us (anyone with same issue) into a different direction like you are just handing us off. A true employee wouldve taken the time to guide a customer and fix the problem right then and there like your chipper attitude insinuates. This is not helpful I didn't find the answer to my issue as u stated I would on the webpage. I do not have a phone I can use for past 4 days can't call support I mean really what am I supposed to do. I will end up changing carriers it shouldn't b this difficult nd I followed activation I got a phone # and already have a billing detail and can't utitilize my God blessed phone!
