The email sent to Jon Delahay - Inphonics


I sent you two rebate requests. I expect unreasonable delays and hassles based on all the negative comments about your company AND my initial experience with cellphonerebates.com which gives no info and refers me to an 800 number which no one answers and gives a message recorded more than a month ago (7/7/06) saying you are revalidating rebates and will update this message in a timely manner.

Since my rebate was sent after 7/7 I would think it received the new validated process right away.

How long will it take before you can tell me if you have a record of receiving my two requests?


I will post this email and your response on --- and Rip Off Report to begin this rebate process on my end.

Anyone Else Have Unauthorized Inphonic Upgrade?

AUTHOR: Dennis - (U.S.A.)

email sent to Jon at Inphonic
I do have another question. Do you think your validation process might reject my two rebates due to a "downgrade" resulting from the unauthorized upgrading of my services by Inphonic? According to Cingular, Inphonic added services to my account on 4/8/06. These were services I not only never ordered, these were services I specifically rejected when I placed my order on 1/6/06. Will the termination of these services be seen as a downgrade?

Dear Mr. ---,
>>>>> Thank you for taking the time to e-mail Cingular Wireless regarding your wireless account. I am happy to help you with your inquiry and I apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused.
Upon reviewing your account, I see that our records show that yourservice was activated through a web site operated by Inphonic (their
most popular site is Wirefly.com), and that the features were added on 4/8/2006 through an automated system used by our authorized retailers.
Because your account was activated through an Inphonic site, this does allow them some access to add and alter features on your account. It
is possible that this was simply an error and that the features were intended for another customer, but if you would like more information,
you can contact Inphonic at whereismyorder.com

I hope that the information provided has been helpful and has resolved all of your questions. If you need further assistance, feel free to
reply to this e-mail or contact customer service at 1-800-331-0500 or 611 from your Cingular Wireless phone.
I encourage you to visit our web site (cingular.com) often to view current and previous monthly statements, make payments and to shop for
new product and service offerings. Thank you for allowing Cingular Wireless to serve as your wireless company. We will do our best to ensure that your wireless experience is a success.

Quick Reply from Inphonic

AUTHOR: Dennis - (U.S.A.)

Received this reply less than 24 hours after sending email

Hello Dennis,

Thank you for the e-mail. I checked your account and as of this moment we do not show a record of your claim information; however, an expedited payment will be requested provided that your rebates meet all the requirements. Please allow 5-10 business days for processing. Your rebate check will be mailed to the following address

Dennis L****

Please note this payment is contingent upon your wireless service provider not reporting a deactivation/downgrade on your account. Rebates are null and void if a deactivation/downgrade is reported prior to the six month service agreement, which constitutes a breech of the service agreement.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
