Its amazing that im 15 and i know more about cell phones than all of the employees that work at retail stores
Heres the story
My moms phone died on her last week(sharp tm150)
so i told her my advice on which one to get and which ones to stay away from. She really didnt want to take my opinion,she probably thought, why should i listen to him, hes only 15 and im sure the workers at the wireless stores will know more about phones than he does.
BOY WAS SHE WRONG
First stop: Cingular wirlesss authorized retailer.
First off, the employee didnt even get the correct manufactures name on the phones. He showed my mom the rzr v3 and said " this high quality megapixel camera phone from nokia is awesome"
so i told him
"Thats actually the motorola razr v3, and its a VGA canera phone."
then he just said " really?"
then he was trying to say the phones retailed for more than they actually do. and he was cutting us a "deal" yeah i know there just trying to make money, but come on, anyone with a brain knows that you can look online and find the msrp. So i told him the actuall msrp gor the phones he showed us. After he coudlnt take being outsmarted by a teenager. he had his boss take over. he wasnt much smarter.lol
second stop: T-Mobile authorized retailer.
Ok, when i first went in the store the guy seemed pretty inteligent. he knew which phones came out when, and who made them. he was doing good untill i started to be a smartass and ask rigorous questions about the features of the phones..lol
First my mom looked at the rzr and he right away told her to stay away from the rzr and motorola alltogether. Any cell phone freak like me knows that motorola puts out poor quality overpriced phones.
Then he showed my mom the nokia 6101. He talked about the design, and how its nokias first candy bar phone. but he failed to mention any features at all. I find it suprising that none of the salesman anywhere talked about the phones camera resolution. so thats when i started with the questioning. I asked him qustions like " i think the 6101 has a 262,000 colour display? does it?" of course he had to go look at a information sheet to find out. i also find it funny how not a single salesman mentions bluetooth, and if they do, they dont know how capable the device is with bluetooth.
So next he showed my mom the fairly new Blackberry 7100T. to be a smart ass again, i told my mom all the specs on it before he could(and by the look on his face, i could tell he was shocked that i knew so much about the phone). I was like" yeah its got a 262k color vga lcd display, speakerphone. i even said the screen resolution and all the fancy stuff.
i just thought i would share that with you guys
ALSO, IF U NEED HELP CHOOSING A CELLULAR PROVIDER,IF U HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT A DEVICE OR ANYTHING CELLULAR RELATED. JUST ASK ME .I WITHER AWAY ABOUT 2 HRS A DAY RESEARCHIGN NEW PHONES AND SPECS A DAY.lol
Thanks for reading.
