Complaint Review: InPhonic
InPhonic1010 Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 600 Washington, District of Columbia U.S.A.
InPhonic, Wirefly, Liberty Wireless Bait and Switch Tactic, Illegal Practices. Rip-off! Washington District of Columbia
After several days (not 24-48 hours as I was originally told) I was told that I was not approved by Cingular so they were switching me to Liberty Wireless. I was told that Cingular did not have enough information to complete my order or that they required a substantial deposit.
I called Cingular and this was not true. They said that my order was approved and they were just waiting for me to activate the account once the phones were received.
I was also not given nearly the same plan, service or phone through Liberty. When I went on the Better Business Bureau website, I looked up InPhonic and they own Liberty Wireless. They had no intention of selling me Cingular. This is an illegal Bait and Switch tatic. I have left messages for InPhonic and will report them whereever possible. They have NO idea how determined I am to make sure they are shut down. I read a lot of complaints that rebates were not honored so I canceled my order promptly.
Originally I wanted them to make good on the original committment to provide me with Cingular but I am convinced their will be bad billing practices and that I too will not receive the rebate.
