I did not let him open the box, I even pointed it out that it was open. He said it was "brand new", and when I inspected the phone I asked if it was new, and he answered yes. I couldn't power it on inside the store because as you probably know it is very small and crowded. As soon as I got in the car, I could instantly tell it was used, because of a number of reasons.Snicla wrote: ↑Dec 3rd, 2008 3:10 pmWhy would you let him 'open the box for you'? You should have told him if he didn't open the thing in front of you it's used. You gotta smell the ******** a mile away and then rub his face in it. Or you should have inspected the damn thing right in front of him and been like, oh well, look, there's lint in the cracks, there's dirt on the back, there's a scratch on the blah blah blah. Don't be afraid, you don't owe them anything. You're the mother effing consumer. You're the one with HIS nuts in YOUR hand! Don't be afraid to squeeze a little.
I talked to the guy about this and he said some stuff and I argued with him that I did not want the phone but it was almost closing time and I did not have any choice but to leave. I came to the store so late because I bought this phone at the Richmond Hill location and they would not take back the first one, so I had to contact the head office for an exchange and now I am stuck with a used one.
