Horrible Phone,Terrible People at Cellular Square

I bought this Blackberry Storm from Cellular Square Wasilla AK 99687. Cellular Square deceived me into believing that the phone was unlocked through their Advertising tag-line "NEW Blackberry STORM 9530 UNLOCKED GSM PDA MP3 Phone 130393779815". They also clearly indicated that the phone was GSM.However, when I received the phone, I realized that it was a CDMA technology phone,limited in it's functionality and that it's data was hard-locked to Verizon.I immediately contacted Alex at Cellular Square to demand a GSM,unlocked Phone. He disregarded my demand, and instead sent me utilities to crack the phone open,but it wouldn't.After several E-Mails back and forth, Alex sent me a note stating the following (and I quote)..."Just because some carriar in a third world country claims its not ok, doesn't convince me that much because we sell many of these phonse and everyone activated just fine"..I protested the use of the word 3rd world as it obviously communicates his ignorance.I mean for someone who cannot even get his spelling right,what business does he have calling Kenya a third world. Is he aware the President Obama's father's origins are in this beautiful country?I am now stuck with a phone that cost me 289.99$,and that does not work. I am so dissapointed that people of such ignorance and poor customer service are allowed to be customer-facing. Alex is disrespectful and the Blackberry Storm that Cellular Square sold me is a TERRIBLE,TERRIBLE,TERRIBLE phone.
I trust that someone at Cellular Square will take the initiative to correct this.

Never buy this mobile phone - a real nightmare

No, I would not recommend this product.

This is the worst mobile phone I have bought so far. It doesn't have wifi and service books installed. You have to buy a package for internet services. Please never do the same mistake I did.

The worst shop I ever made from ebay.

No, I would not recommend this product.

The Worst phone to have. It has to be clicked the whole screen to do some thing that makes it the worst phone of all time. they call it a screen touch, but it is not a screen touch.

Hmmm....

No, I would not recommend this product.

The phone was too slow whenever changing from apps or even folders. The screen is difficult to get a hang on if you're used to the buttons -like i was, since you actually have to press it down. Its not heat censored but more like pressure censored. The phone that I actually bought had a dirty ESN so it made the experience more difficult.

THAT DECEPTION

my worst internet shopping, do not really understand because they put on offer something that does not work, is that
Less than a month cell phone blackberry 9530 storm was ruined, he stayed with black screen and does not work .... really is a hoax, because if they know that these phones came with manufacturing defect, because fool people by putting them on sale, better before the customer buys, should say the phone manufacturing defects .... is amazing in less than a month phone is ruined ........ I wonder if they changed the phone and give me a better model last me at least two months good?, clear that the answer is no. read all the excuses that will put, and they never accept the deception.
decided to buy this thinking that everything was safe, and never thought that life was going to be useful than a month

Thanks for the deception

Worst Blackberry ever made.

No, I would not recommend this product.

Worst Blackberry ever created and I've been using Blackberry for years. The touch screen cannot be compared to the iphone or any touch screen I have ever seen. You have to actually "click" the touch screen like you were with buttons. It's bulky and clumsy not nice like a Bold or Curve. The touch screen is very sluggish. It's not user friendly and freezes a lot. If you want a Blackberry, get anything but this hunk of crap.
