I’ve been wanting to buy a new BlackBerry Pearl (Multimedia Phone), and I was planning on buying it at Walmart, but that plan fell through. I ran into so many problems in the search and plans. I honestly now refuse to buy anything from their Connection Center, online or otherwise, because of the problems I’ve had since trying to get the phone.
The start of the story starts when my husband was in the process of switching from being a Walmart Electronics associate to a postal carrier, so a little over a year ago. During that time, the Connection Center in his store was getting the ability to order any phone available through any carrier. If the carrier themselves carried the product, Walmart could get the customer that phone, at a Walmart price. At least, that’s what we were told. Come to find out, that’s just an advertising gimmick. That, or things have seriously changed in just under a year
