Awful service - rebate scam

by mswebbs / August 23, 2006 7:34 AM PDT

I ordered a cell phone and Cingular Service through InPhonic. It carried a $200 rebate. I sent my rebate in on March 14, 2000. It was recieved on the 15th. It is now August 23, 2006 and I have yet to receive my rebate. I called and had to go through 3 different numbers to get the right one. When I finally got through to the right rebate center they told me I didn't have a rebate submission, but later found it. They said it was processed on May 28th which is ridiculous. It has been 5 months since I submitted my rebate and I have yet to see it.

Am I reading what you said correctly? That you sent in your rebate to InPhonic on March 14, 2000 and you still haven't received your rebate check yet?

I hate to tell you but from all the other posts I've aleady read in this forum and there are several threads in this forum on this subject; many others are also still waiting on their rebate checks yet I can't believe that the company is still in business.

If it's been over 6 years now and still you haven't received your rebate check; I hate to say it but you probably won't get your rebate check but then again you just might. All I can say is I hope that you do get your check and if you do I wouldn't buy from InPhonic or Wirefly or any of their other affiliated companies again. Good luck on getting that check.

2006, I'm sure

I'm pretty sure that's a typo, and she meant to write 2006. I don't even think InPhonic was around in 2000.

Six years is a little ridiculous, no?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
