I bought a Galaxy S2 mobile phone not quite a year ago at Walmart with a 3 year service plan on January 5, 2013. It's now December 16, 2013 and my phone is acting up-it won't turn on-it just vibrates. I Googled the problem on the internet, and it is talked about a lot. According the the web, there is no fix I can do myself, I have to send it in to the manufacturer to get it fixed. I thought I was in luck-I don't even have to use my extended warranty because right now it's before the 1 year manufacturers warranty is up!
I went in to Walmart and they mistakenly told me to call the number for the extended warranty, which I did. The reps there told me I needed to call Walmart Family Mobile to have my problem addressed, but while they had me on the phone, they said FYI- I was sold the wrong extended warranty, it isn't valid!. I thought I might be ok still, though for my problem because my year for the manufacturers warranty wasn't up.
So I called Walmart Family Mobile customer service and told them the "vibrating" problem with my Galaxy S2. And shockingly, the rep said that my phone wasn't covered by the manufacturers waranty either because even thought the phone was in a Walmart Family Mobile box and I bought it with a WFM plan, WFM isn't actually the entity who I bought the phone from-BUT HE DOESN'T ACTUALLY KNOW WHO I BOUGHT THE PHONE FROM! It wasn't Walmart Family Mobile though. So now I am stuck with an brick for a phone because I was sold the wrong 3 year warranty, and also, even though the box I bought the phone in said Walmart Family Mobile, it's not their phone-it's someone elses. They don't know who's, but the Galaxy manufacturers warranty doesn't cover it and neither does the bogus extended warranty they sold me.
