Before you start insulting people here, maybe you should get grammar lessons. I think it's more likely you just described yourself.
A similar situation happened to me. They do not get to invalidate your first win just because they feel like it. The next day I called and asked for the manager. I didn't even bother telling her the issue, I just asked for a phone number and email of someone at corporate. That always scares the heck out of employees. So she asked what the problem was and if she could help me. I told her my story, and she asked me to give her 10 minutes to verify my story with the employee that did the challenge with me. She called me back 10 minutes later and said that she would honor my win and that I could pickup the laptop immediately. The End . Good luck with your friend.
I doubt they'll let you. Karma
Here's an idea, why don't you actually listen to the employees and stop going in every day. Wait for your email.
Your confusion is understandable. But, while you were sleeping we already established that legitimate people are getting Titan II at some some stores (I think in the CA area so far). We are passed the point of asking for proof and at this point we are looking for people to chime in and let us know when they get one.
I couldn't have said it better myself. I wish I could give you another rep point.
I concur. Can Aznguy78 tell me when he's going to the store so I can record the whole event? Then I can put it on YouTube and make $1 Million as a viral video. That's slick!
Translation: "You need to be a dishonest jackass douchebag, with no sense of shame or moral decency"
We all know the real rules: "turn in a real smartphone with service from a real carrier(sprint, Verizon, etc.). We aren't supposed to be able to turn in non-smartphones or prepaid phones.
What you are referring to and complaining about is employees who are letting some of us bend the rules. That's not bad, that's good. That's how some of us are making this extra slick.
I'm not who you were responding to and I agree with you. I don't have my phone yet, but I played with the Windows Phones in store when I did the challengeandI was surprised at how awesome they were. Microsoft's promotion has worked on me. They got me to pickup one of their phones and see how great they are.
I would think not. If they question you about it just tell them that it was activated when you took the challenge, but had service temporarily switched off because they told you to come in and pick up your phone. You wouldn't want to give them an activated phone. That's what I'm going to say, and it's true.
That would be friggin awesome
I agree completely. But I think that was probably a unique situation and one we won't be able to replicate. That guy got the confirmation email to pickup his phone and then they weren't holding it for him. They won't offer everyone a $500 gift card.
lol ... reps for the Seinfeld reference.
Look I'm cool I can quote 10 post in one post.
If you read my post my point was that Microsoft ran this promotion so poorly. The lack of direction it gave the stores and the lack of direction the stores gave each employee, it seems the "rules" changed everyday even though I understand they didn't anticipate how many scumbags would try and scam them for more than one phone. And how did they not have phones at the ready, shipping them where they needed to go?l
If you don't have the supply you stop the promotion early, not continue it another week or two. If you ready post you would see that I would be happy with any AT&T phone at this point, I requested a Titan and getting any phone free would be slick, I could care less if it was a Titan II even though that would be cool.l
I'm not complaining about not getting my phone quickly just that seeing the different message and assumptions coming from each store it seems like Microsoft failed to lay out the promotion clearly to the public let alone their own staff.

just get an unlock code from the zillion websites selling them, I tried the ATT route too and they shot me down, ended up buying unlock code from cellunlock for 19.99. unlocked just fine.
I don't really need it. I was just seeing if they can unlock it since I was asking about the iPhone 4, got turned down since I haven't fulfill the contract (06/24/2012). So I asked about the Samsung Focus S. I'm an AT&T subscriber, so I was wondering if they had unlock code for Samsung Focus S when I'm in good standing.
