I checked a galaxy IMEI number to see if it had been blacklisted on the 2degrees website in the help section, this is where-
It kindly tells you that you can check any handset by texting 'check' and the IMEI number you want to check to 255, i got a reply back saying "the IMEI you sent is NOT currently blocked for use on the 2degrees network" the handset itself was secondhand, in its original box with manuals, and the barcodes and stickers one with the IMEI on it, it is mint condition hardley used and was restored to factory settings in front of me!
So after i did the "blacklist" check i bought it, i went and bought a sim swap and got my number transfered frm a standard to a micro sim, put it in the galaxy and it Wont connect to network (2degrees btw), so i rung customer support only for them to tell me that apperantly the handset is blacklisted! Ummmm WHAT is going on 2degrees? AND the IMEI checker on 2degrees help page is still right now saying its not blocked, please do sumthing 2degrees, I cant afford this muck up on your part, we should be able to trust the information givin by 2degrees website help pages!
Please help a poor person who has been mislead into thinking the phone was legit, and the customer service was so rude, telling me im stupid to be buying a second hand ph! Well I cant afford brand new! I was informed it was NOT blocked! I thought I could trust 2degrees! Im confused and very upset, apperantly someone frm 2degrees will be getting back to me within 24hrs, will they? Or is that pork pies too?, in the mean time i dont have a cell phone to use as i got my number transferd onto a micro sim which dosnt go into my old handset with the standard size sim, NOT COOL!
