    Hi,

    What is the address (snail or e-mail) for sending formal complaints
    about Sprint PCS customer service?

    I've had a particularly bad experience lately and wanted to bring it
    to somebody's attention at Sprint. Briefly, here's what happened:

    (BTW, I've been a Sprint PCS customer for many years now 3 or 4 or so.)

    Friday, August 8: (one week ago)

    Call 1: I call up Sprint PCS. My wife and I
    currently have 1 PCS phone, and we want to add a second, which will
    involve switching plans and using their $20/mo add-a-phone option.
    They (of course) have plans to offer me over the phone that aren't on
    sprintpcs.com (which is a major source of irritation for me.) I order
    a Sanyo 6400. The Sprint rep changes the plan, places the order for
    the phone, and promises delivery in 3-5 days.

    CSR tells me at the end of the call that she needs to transfer me to
    an automated system for me to accept the 1-year agreement. She
    manages to hang up on me instead.

    Call 2: I call back, explain the situation, and get a very confused
    CSR who ends up saying she'll send me to the automated agreement
    system but sends me to the main menu instead.

    Call 3: I get another CSR and make him give me the number for the
    agreement system before he transfers me (successfully, as it happens)
    this time.

    Monday, August 11: I call Sprint to find out the number for the new
    phone so I can begin sending it out to family. They say it has not
    yet been sent out, and they won't know the number until it is.

    Tuesday, August 12: I make the same call, and get the same answer.
    This starts to concern me.

    Wednesday, August 13: I make the same call, and this time Sprint rep
    "jfoste14" tells me, after lots of time checking, that the order for
    the Sanyo 6400 was canceled because Sprint sold out. (How helpful of
    them to let me know.) He tried to sell me on the Nokia phone, but I
    wanted something with more features and better reception. I asked
    about the Sanyo 4900, and he agreed to give me a $20 credit to make up
    for the price difference between that and the 6400 due to all my
    troubles with Sprint. After this call, I was reasonably happy with
    Sprint because of the $20 offer.

    Friday, August 15:

    Call 1: Called Sprint's special "order status" line to check on the
    status of the 4900 order. They claim that order was not placed, and
    showed only the canceled 6400 order. They told me to talk to their
    sales dept. to order it (different than the first people I talked
    to).

    Call 2: Talked to the second sales department. Agreed with the
    order not being placed, but couldn't give me the $100 of promotion
    that the Sprint customer service people could. Told me to cal
    lthem.

    Call 3: Called customer support and had them e-mail jfoste14 (the
    guy that placed the 4900 order). They would not transfer me to him
    directly. He never returned my call.

    Call 4: Called customer support and inquired about the problem.
    They confirmed that the order for the 4900 was not placed, and
    placed the order, telling me to call back Monday to get the order
    number. This person refused to give me the $20 credit on the spot,
    but said she was making a note in my account for it and I should
    call back to get it once the phone has been activated, which I'll
    have to do once it arrives. (Up till now, everybody has been
    telling me it'll ship pre-activated.) This CSR, pcottm01, was
    unsure about the plan I had wanted and couldn't tell me for sure if
    my phone would be on the plan I wanted, but she said "I'll request
    it on the form -- hope they do it."

    Call 5: Called customer support hoping for a more person, and
    remembering that I didn't double-check in call #4 to make sure that
    the CSR was adding the new phone to the shared plan rather than
    putting it in a new plan. This person said that the plan assignment
    isn't done till I activate the phone anyway, so just call back
    before I use it.

    All told, I think I've spent more than 5 hours on the phone to Sprint
    just ordering a new phone. Kinda sad.

    Re: Complaining to Sprint

    It's good to tell us, but I don't think anyone else would listen. Certainly
    not sprint management. And worst of all, there's nothing anyone could or
    will do about it.

    Snip..

    I'm sorry to hear that anyone has to go though something like this, esp
    a long term customer. Unfortunatly, there is nothing I'll be able to do
    about this. I can't find any of those phones in any store.

    I don't have the address, but the main corp office is in Overland Park,
    Kansas.

    What area are you in?

    That I knew; planetfeedback.com has an address, and the whois records
    list 6330 Sprint Parkway. I just wondered if anyone else had a better
    one than that

    I'm in the Wichita, KS area, about 3 hours' drive southwest of the
    Overland Park (Kansas City) area.

    You are not alone. I had something similiar with something I thought
    would be simple and I must of spent about 10 hours+ and gave up for
    the most part.

    Basically, I ordered a new phone (i500) and some accessories. Never
    got the accessories as they magically lost the order. New phone came
    but power plug was defective. Spent about 3 hours trying to get the
    part replaced but ended up having to order a new phone. The phone
    never came. Ended up picking up a new phone at a Sprint store.
    Ordered a return kit. That did not come, had to call back to
    complain. Ordered another travel sync cable, they again lost the
    order after a few days. Called to complain. A week later, they sent
    an incorrect cable. Called to complain, they say they will send
    another one out. Called back to check on the status, they lost the
    order again. After about another 2 hours of trying to get a hold of
    someone who can order a cable, one CSR just said, go to Radio Shack
    for the cable or order it from Samsung. Ordered from Samsung and got
    it the next day! Ordered a return kit for the cable (still did not
    come). Finally got the return kit for the defective phone and
    returned it immediately. After 1 week+ so far, I still did not get
    credit for the phone (this is going be a long while).

    Bottomline:
    - I'm very troubled that doing something so simple as ordering an
    accessory is too complicated for Sprint to handle.

    - I believe most of the problems is that Sprint has many different
    departments who don't talk well with each other. I have a business
    account and that really complicate things for them. They have to
    transfer to someone else to order equipment and they do not have an
    idea of what they have in stock. If it is not in stock, then the
    order gets lost. If they can't provide an order number or a tracking
    number immediately, then I doubt the order will actually be placed.

    - I've learned that complaining really gets no where with Sprint. I
    tried talking to Executive services but in this case, they just
    transferred me to the same folks who just transferred me to someone
    else who could not help me.

    Good luck.

    Executive Services is the higher ups that act like ombudsman to solve
    grief and illogical things that happen to us folks. Sprint has made it
    hard to get to them.

    Try the Sprint switchboard, but they'll lie and not put you through most
    likely
