 I purchased 2 phones at Pinellas Park Metro store on 6/12/14.  Mine was a LG Optimus L70. The other was a gift for my grand daughters birthday.

I immediately had problems with mine. Certain people I texted were receiving the texts in a Japanese dialect. I would text one person, and the text would be received by someone else. began getting  triangular red shapes, indicating a sending error on texts.

Then incoming phone calls could not get through. As soon as I would pick up, they call would disconnect. Or, would disconnect during conversation.

I called the young man I purchased the phones from. I had spent almost $300.00. I was miffed. First, he told me it had something to do with their towers. When I called again, he told me to romove the battery and the SIM card. After I did that,it went from bad to worse.

I took the phone to a Metro store close to my home. They did a hard reset. Lost all my settings, and it did no good. When I took it back, he told me the phone had a software problem and I needed to return it to the corporate store.

I took it to the corporate store on 7/1/14. I was told by the woman that waited on me that my replacement phone would arrive in 3 days. So I waited. The holiday fell on the third day, so I assumed I would hear from them 7/5.

I went back there on 7/7. An extremely rude woman informed me it was 3 to 5 business days. So, I waited. The Corporate store has no phone number listed anywhere. If you want to speak to them, you have to go there. I figured I would hear from them  Wednesday, 7/9.

It is now Sunday, 7/13. Still no word. No phone. I paid for a month of service the day I purchased the phone. I paid for another month on 7/11, only so my grand daughter's phone would'nt be shut off. I want my phone!
