I pre-ordered thru Best Buy, waited about a month with a backorder. When it finally came yesterday i tried to activate it and it couldn't. I called Verizon and they said BestBuy "locked" the watch and i would have to go to the store and have them unlock it? Well, I went to BestBuy and they said they have no authority to lock any phone or watch and this is a known issue with Verizon. why is going on? Now, I'm on hold for 45mins while they try to add the IMEI to their database? Not happy with Verizon at all!! Unknown outcome so far.......still on permeant hold!
I know your time is valuable and apologize for the conflicting information you received. I hopeful your concern has been addressed and resolved since you original post. If not, please advise. -Yani
nope, was supposed to get a call back and didn't. What is going on? Why can't between Verizon, BestBuy, and Samsung figure this out before they launch a new product! I'm back on the phone holding forever to get this resolved!
Escalated ticket and promised it will be resolved within 48hrs. Apparently Samsung didn't transmit or Verizon didn't enter the IMEI numbers in a timely fashion so I'm told.
And the customer suffers.....Someone should be fired for this because they are saying there are many like me complaining about the same issue.
"Can you here me now?........"lol
