    Ordered my DTEK60 and was super excited (still am) from Shop CrackBerry Canada. Phone arrived in 7 days. This was my Bday present to myself, at least that was my excuse for replacing my Passport.

    Details:
    - Installed SIM and did all the setup, etc.
    - Spent hours on all the content transfer
    - Finally noticed there was little to no reception. Thought it was kinda weird (never have had reception problems). Reception issues were really bad. Went sometimes 4+ hours with no reception at all.
    - Went to Telus store to inquire with them. They ported my number to a new SIM card and still the same problems. Took the new SIM and installed it in my "old" Passport and it worked perfectly
    - Telus rep advised that it was a hardware issue
    - Here are the dates:
    * Nov 11th - Ordered phone
    * Nov 18th - Phone arrived
    * Nov 20th - Contacted Shop CrackBerry
    * Nov 21st - CrackBerry Responded (saying they don't deal with warranty issues and sent me to BRC.warranty@ingrammicro.com)
    * Nov 21st - Contacted BRC with the issue
    * Nov 21st - BRC responded with a form to fill out for the warranty details
    * Nov 21st - Filled out form and sent back
    * Nov 22nd - Received read receipt from BRC
    * Nov 28th - Received shipping instructions and pre-paid shipping label
    * Nov 29th - Shipped package at Staples
    * Dec 7th - Package had not moved as per Purolator online tracking. Called Purolator about package
    * Dec 9th - Purolator confirmed they lost package and are now searching for it
    * Dec 13th - BRC Warrantee say they have the device (magically). Purolator still does not know how it got there as the have no scans of it in transit or arriving (Useless)
    * Dec 16th - Emailed BRC
    * Dec 16th - BRC responds says they will get back to me once they know what is going on with device
    * Dec 16th - Emailed BRC
    * No Response
    * Dec 19th - Emailed BRC
    * No Response
    * Dec 27th - Emailed BRC
    * Dec 28th - Response from BRC. New device being sent out within the next 48hrs
    * Waiting for device to arrive
    * Jan 3rd - Received tracking for my new phone today. Says it should arrive today in Winnipeg. I LIVE IN WHITE ROCK, BC!! Not Winnipeg
    * Jan 3rd - Emailed BRC about the shipping details
    * Jan 4th - BRC said they would look into the shipping
    * Jan 5th - BRC emailed saying they have not sent my phone yet and are now waiting for another shipment of new phones to send me one.



    I am not happy with how long this is taking. My last two BlackBerries have been purchased through Amazon and their customer service is amazing! I had a Passport with the screen lift issue and received a new one within 2 days of mentioning the issue to them.

    I'll update this post as soon as I receive more updates. I am already a little agitated over this debacle, they had better not make me pay for shipping or send me a refurbished phone! Luckily my Passport still is working.

    Yes I know the title says poor CrackBerry customer service and it is warrantied through another third party (who are the actual faulty ones) but in my opinion if I purchased the device through them and they use another company for the warranty then it is still under their umbrella of customer service. Thought I would throw this extra comment in before people get mad at me for the title.

    That really sucks! Telus also sucks. I went through 4 sim cards before finding a proper one that worked for my old z10. Telus uses nfc and non nfc sim cards. Did they try both?

    Mike,

    Not sure about the SIM card styles. All I know is that the 2 SIM cards did not work in my DTEK60 and both worked in my Passport. Of course both phones are unlocked (before someone asks)

    They both have nfc. Should work then. That's too bad

    Update us on what happens - maybe at this point you should just return the phone.

    If they make you pay for shipping why don't you just return it all together.

    Did you Google that email address to verify and see who you are actually emailing?

    Did you go to Blackberry's main page and check to see the contact information to cash in on your 1 year of technical support? US/CAN – 855-556-2522.

    Sorry to hear about the issues you're having but most of the frustration seems to be coming from after the wait after emailing the warranty folks not really with ShopCrackBerry, which responded with proper information quickly and accordingly. Unfortunately, ShopCrackBerry has no way to speed them up.

    Yes I understand that it is not really Shop BlackBerry who is at fault for the poor customer service. But it is who they forward to for the warranty service for the products they sell. Easy to pass the buck on to another company for the problems.

    Long story short I am displeased with the poor customer service and "possibly" Shop CrackBerry could have just sent a new device as the current one arrived DOA.

    Amazon would have sent a new device instantly.

    I'll attached a copy of my email to the warranty company in a sec...

    Here is all the corresponding emails in regards to this issues (I am aware of my personal information in here and am not worried about it mods, thx)

    Warranty Desk,
    *
    I an unhappy with your untimely response to my warranty form.* I sent the form to you on Nov 21st and received a read receipt on Nov 22nd.* There has been no correspondence in regards to my phone being replaced.* This is a device that was broken right out of the box.* It would have been easier and quicker to send the device back to Shop CrackBerry (as it is brand new and unused) and purchased another one through them.*
    *
    FYI, I am not going to pay for any shipping, will not accept a refurbished device, and expect expedited shipping.* I have dealt with warranty issues with my other BlackBerry (Passport) through Amazon and they sent me a new device that arrived within 2 days of contacting them with the problem.
    *
    Please respond ASAP

    My brand new DTEK60 does not work properly on arrival.
    *
    Details:
    - cell service hasn't worked properly since day one
    - Telus network Canada
    - brand new SIM goes hours without service in typical service areas
    - went to Telus store and they gave me another new SIM. Tested new SIM and service didn't work. Sometimes it will get minimal service (one bar) but still ‎cannot make phone calls or receive data. Taking the exact same SIM and put it in my BlackBerry Passport (my old phone) and the service works instantly without any issue.*
    - Telus rep says DTEK60 *is ‎faulty

    Please advise ASAP

    I unfortunately find myself in the same boat! About two weeks after receiving my dtek 60 from shop crackberry, I suddenly cannot make or receive calls! Signal level show full bars at times and no service at other times in the same location! And even with full bars, I can't make or receive calls! I went to rogers asked about their network status, I changed the sim card! Nothings helps! And the sim card works flawlessly in my passport! I also spoke to tech support from rogers and all concluded that it is a device issue! I haven't contacted shop crackberry yet since the issue started today and I wanted to search the forums for tips or potential fixes

    After reading your experience I feel sad! I didn't want to return it, i was hoping for a replacement or a fix!

    Wow. Pathetic customer service.

    So sorry you have to deal with that. Can you just ask for a refund? I would not accept something that I paid full price for as brand new and they then had to "repair" it before I even get to use it. Not a chance in hell.

    Demand a refund and then buy it from Amazon.
