After I tried the device and it didn't work in my house, I returned to the store the next day. They then exchanged my device for another model. I then tried the new model, and it didn't work either. So then I came back on Monday, the 2nd of February to return the second device. They told me to come back the following day because a mexican singer was signing autographs and they didn't have time for me.
So, I then returned to the store the following day. The sales person, Jessica, assured me the refund of the 300 dollars is going to take one week to be returned to me by the company. She said I had to come back when my check cleared. At that moment my check was still at the store... I said to them "Why don't you return me my check, and that'll be it?" They then said that they had to follow the rules and had to deposite my check.
When the check cleared a few days later, I came back to the store for my refund. Now I understood why they had to follow the rules; because they charged me 25 dollars for a connection fee??? After that the manager then said to me that 'she understands why I am upset.' but the computer didn't allow her to take my 25 dollars, and I had to then call customer services about the 300 dollar deposit... I had to wait a good 4 weeks for that... Now all you people who are reading this can make your own conclusions...
