    Radio Shack Liar???

    So I went in to Radio Shack in the mall the day that the Razr was released. The employee came up and wanted to get me to buy it, so I said the unthinkable and told him "I'm not a big fan". Then he asked what phone I have and I told him the Bionic. Then he told me that I must have gotten lucky to get one that works cause they are all pulled off the shelves due to too many problems.

    I remember the buzz about something similar to this a few weeks back and was under the impression that was because of stocking issues. The whole thing still seems so odd to me though cause the Bionic is the effing shiz. Any other thoughts or ideas on what the heck this fellow was saying? It kind of annoyed me because I think he just wanted his paycheck out of the deal......

    Radio Shack did pull the Bionic and labeled it as unsellable, this guy was probably misinformed, not a liar

    Can you remind me why they pulled it? It never really made sense to me. I'm not concerned cause I love my Bionic regardless. But just for the sake of conversation and learning.

    There has never been an official statement as to why RS pulled the Bionic.
    Those in the know have implied it's due to VZW being upset at the $100 instant rebate taking more than expected sales away from VZW Direct

    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    For a time the Shack was selling the Bionic for $199 while VZW was selling it for $299. Was kinda hoping they would run sales like that with the newest phones.

    I just get frustrated by salesmen who try to make you look or feel stupid just to make a buck. I didn't want to accuse him of lying, but I do want to accuse him of embellishing the truth and being deceptive. Word choice while making a sale can certainly be borderline dishonest at times and what he was doing was not total honesty.

    theres a difference between lying and just no knowing what the hell one is talking about.
    I would venture to guess this particular associate falls into the latter group.
