100% full Not resolved

Update by user Mar 20, 2015

Update: After sending two emails to Ecyclebest the morning after I received the notice that I'd be paid $100 less than was originally quoted, demanding my phone be returned to me, I called the customer service number later in the day.I was on hold for about 10 minutes before someone answered, who incidentally seemed quite sweet.

I explained my situation and was told that I would have to be transferred to the Purchasing Department (just like what everyone on here said would happen). That connection never happened. I remained on hold, heard the recording about "high call volume" and to call back.

Two minutes later the call disconnected.Step by step, it happened exactly like almost everyone on here had it happen to them.

Last week, I sent in to Ecyclebest my Verizon Wireless Droid DNA, which was in perfect condition.I was quoted $117 for the phone, if it were in good condition.

I immediately put a protective case and screen protector on the phone when it came out of the box, neither of which ever came off. There was not a scratch on the phone, all the buttons still worked, and the phone powered on and worked just fine, which seemed to be the company's requirements for "good" condition. Yesterday, I got an email stating that I would receive only $16 for my phone.

I emailed them back this morning to reject that offer and ask for my phone back, as per the terms and conditions.Reading all of the other complaints, it seems like a useless venture to bother calling them, as no one ever seems to get through to a person.

Review about: Cell Phone Trade In.

I didn't like: False advertising, Bait-and-switch.

Review #609865 is a subjective opinion of a user.

Reason of Review / Monetary Loss Not as described / $100
Preferred solution I want the full price originally quoted to me, or my device returned to me in the condition I sent it.

Had an Experience with Ecyclebest?
