Consumer Pimps Car To Hate Tmobile

Wow, this person hates T-mobile so much they plastered it on the back of their car.

With the added benefit of distracting people from their ugly-ass PT cruiser.

What’s the farthest you’ve gone to publicly express your displeasure with a company?

    Posted nasty messages about them on blogs. Clearly, this person is in another league.

    Thats pretty hard core for being wronged over a cell phone. I had a friend who ended up buying a lemon of a used car in a state without lemon laws. He ended up painting all kinds of nasty comments all over the car. It looked awful and made a hell of a statement.

  4. What’s the farthest you’ve gone…

    i’ve been working for them for upwards of 12 years now. i am all about irony.

    Wow, I’ve actually been really happy with T-Mobile. The only problems I’ve had with them have been extreme obtuse technical ones and their customer service staff has always been polite and very friendly. Also, they tend to answer the phone very fast, which I appreciate.

    They’re much better than when I had AT&T Wireless a few years ago. AT&T at the time (they might still do this) were unable to place all of the phone calls from this month onto this month’s bill. Some, they said, would arrive at the billing center late so they had to be put on the next month’s bill. Some from last month, would end up on this month’s bill. In their minds it evened out, but I would invariably have to call to have them remove calls from my bill that fell outside of my billing period but were causing me to go over this month’s minute allotment. They did it each time, but insisted that they didn’t have to since technically they could place my phone calls into whatever month they pleased. I asked what they would do if I used my entire 600 minute monthly allotment in one 600 minute call each month. Would I get one month with 1200 minutes and one with zero? They wouldn’t answer. It was awful, so I quit. Yeah T-Mobile.

    Furthest i have ever gone was to bitch about it in the comments section of a consumer blog.

    I have T-Mobile and so far I’m very happy. I’m picky, yet I’ve been happy with their service. I got the unlimited internet plan with a Nokia 9300 (yay Ebay), and it works perfect.

    When I dial 611, they answer quick. I had some issues when I started and they always give me bonus minutes for my trouble.

    I must say in this day and age where phone companies are greedy and evil, T-Mobile has been good to me. Just my experience/opinion.

    For a couple of years, there was this guy who would wear a sandwich sign and protest in front of Best Buy every weekend. He would pass out flyers detailing some horrible treatment he got when he tried to return a VHS take of _The Wrath of Kahn_.

    He said that because of his crusade, his wife was about ready to leave him.

    I’ve never done this, but I’ve thought about similar.

    I also routinely write “letters to the editor” in my head, and after a while they don’t seem as important or earth-shattering. I’m glad that I’ve never mailed any of them.

    Sometimes I bitch on consumer blogs or my own.


  11. ha, i’m a dork.

    Posted the incident on the internet for the world to hear and did television interviews.

    Isn’t it time to retire Vinny to the Hall of Fame so he can’t swoop in and one-up us all the time?

  15. Vinny says:

    I’d be perfectly happy being retired… Raise my Jersey (number 19, my lucky number) to the ceiling of Gawker Media. I could give a speech… Maybe get Jason Calacanis to come over and represent AOL…

    It’ll be fun, dammit! FUN I TELL YOU!

  16. meandertail says:

    Well, this is pretty similar to the Tmobile car, but some guy I see driving around here has spray painted both of his cars with ‘Duke LASIK ruined my eyes’. I have to tell you, I always feel super-confident driving in the vicinity of that guy.

  17. In the 1980s, we had an Audi 5000 that had several window regulator failures. In addition to several sunroof failures. In addition to a transmission failure.

    At one point, when the driver’s side window refused to rise when commanded, my dad put a trash bag over the window and painted “AUDI LEMON” with a stylized lemon in the center. Then he parked it at the dealership on a Sunday morning, “forgetting” to drop the keys in the service dept. drop box.

    Near as we can tell from the service manager, they lost several sales that Sunday.

    I wrote a nasty letter once.

    You know that earthlink commercial where that girl promises that when
    you call, she’ll treat your problems like her problems? Whenever that
    comes on – whether I’m in my living room, at a friend’s house, or in a
    crowded sports bar – I tell everyone how that earthlink girl likes her
    problems to be “resolved” with a minimum amount of courtesy and a
    maximum amount of inconvenience and
    implying-the-customer-is-a-dumbass-ness. Or at least that how earthlink
    treated me when my dsl suddenly stopped working.

    It’s started some bar-wide discussions of earthlink suckiness, too.

    I think I probably hate T-Mobile more than this guy..

    The unlimited Wi-Fi calling feature that never worked led me to demand an early exit from my 2yr agreement. T-mobile tried one last time to remedy the problem by swapping out my blackberry 8820. They replaced my phone (which worked fine, except for the t-mo wi-fi feature) – replaced it with a reman’d unit.

    The re-manufactured unit had a defective keyboard. After calling in to complain about it, T-Mo let me out of my agreement with no penalty.

    At first I thought I was fortunate.. until I found out that my warranty was canceled upon contract termination.

    Now I have a defective phone that nobody will support.

    Boo T-Mo ..

    MEGABOO on RIM for refusing to support the phone.
