    I've had no luck getting the data cable for my phone to work. The
    SnapSync provider told me that the problem was with my phone.

    I called the local Sprint store earlier today, explained my problem, and
    was told that I could exchange the phone as long as I got to the store
    before the tech left at 6:30. I told them that I was on my way and to
    please wait.

    I left work early - taking unpaid leave - and arrived at the store at
    6:05. The employees at the store told me that the tech left at 6:00 like
    he does every night. They denied saying what they told me on the phone
    about the tech being there until 6:30.

    I'm now on eternal hold with Sprint customer service...

    Be warned: DO NOT USE A 3RD PARTY DATA CABLE OR SOFTWARE WITH YOUR
    PHONE. BESIDES BEING BUGGY (SnapLink), USING SUCH SOFTWARE AND CABLES
    WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY.

    1. Who determined it was the phone at fault?

    2. The warranty (issued by the manufacturer, not Sprint) states that the
    use of software and accessories not provided by the phone manufacturer can
    indeed void the warranty.

    Care to explain where the non-manufacturing service provider is at fault
    here?

    Alright ... so you did something you know is wrong [using third party
    equipment with your phone ... this is a problem for EVERY carrier] and
    you seem to blame Sprint PCS for not supporting you? BTW .. I am
    guessing that you talked with one store on the phone but drove to
    another and that is why the tech wasn't there when you arrived.

    That's a bunch of malarky... SnapSync has received a lot of complaints about
    their syncing problems with new phones recently released. That rep you were
    speaking with was just trying to pass the buck off for their own software
    inadequecies.

    Speaking about the USB cable, you never said where you got that from.

    LMAO right now that you would be blaming SPCS because you have problems
    syncing, based on third party software. You do realize that SPCS doesn't
    manufacture that phone ... don't you?

    Why aren't you contacting Samsung, as they manufactured the phone? Here's
    another question for you. Why are you so pissed, when neither SPCS or
    Samsung don't support or sell USB cables for their phones?

    Let me get this straight...

    You bought a cable sprintpcs doesn't even sell or claim to support. Tried
    to use software that was again not bought through or with a hint of
    knowledge of sprintpcs. Was told the phone was at fault from third party
    software support that never saw the phone and was told that they can't
    help you. Then when sprintpcs offers to have the phone looked at and you
    take unpaid leave, really now how is this anyone's fault but your own,
    just to find that the time you were told was wrong. Which granted is a
    miscommunication problem but are you sure it was the same store? Finally
    to top this all off you state snaplink is buggy software anyway. How can
    you possible blame sprintpcs for this? As someone already pointed out
    sprintpcs doesn't even make the phones so the original warranty is not up
    to them. The add on phone insurance/warranty will cover most things the
    original warranty would not but it still doesn't cover deliberate damage
    by the users(such as using bad/poorly designed 3rd party add-ons).
    Sprintpcs is willing to look at your phone to see if there is a hardware
    problem with the phone which means they are willing to work with you but
    you can't possibly ask them to make the phone work with a third party
    utility/add-on after your purchase.
