My trusty LG VX6100 (aka the HabsPhone) is dying. Well, the battery is dying, and the phone might be on its way out as well – tbd. I decided rather than buy a new phone, I’d just grab a new battery. Went to the Verizon store – $49.99 no joke! I googled “VX6100 battery” and intentionally clicked on one of the sponsored ads. Did a couple of price comparisons, and ended up getting two batteries with overnight shipping for $45 all-in.I then googled “cellphoneshop.net review” and most of the reviews were again positive (for the most part). I figured “what the heck” and bought it. I immediately sent off an email to their sales email address asking them to confirm it would arrive by today (I’m hopping on a plane tomorrow, and can’t deal with 20 minutes of talk time anymore).
The email bounced. Uh oh.
But then I noticed it was a typo, and sent off another one. This
one burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp got through. To my huge surprise, I received a polite email which informed me the batteries would arrive not just on time, but a day early, and then 30 minutes later an email arrived with a tracking number. Wonderful.
Funny enough, I actually didn’t want the package to arrive early, since I knew I wouldn’t be around to receive it yesterday. That afternoon, I received another email from cellphoneshop with the fedex info and alerting me to the fact that the shipment wasn’t delivered properly. This is A+ customer service in my book.
The icing was on the cake today when I plugged the batteries in and they worked just fine. Good job cellphoneshop.net, thanks for your service. You might want to consider a new domain name, but that’s just me musing…
