    The wireless toyz franchise stores i Phoenix arizona, owned by Sean Farida and his family, are really crooked. I was sold a defective LG phone in July 2014, and had my number ported from another carrier. To this day, my phone has not been repaired (under warranty as promised), it will not properly send & receive text messages, and has problems with retrieving messages from voice mail. I also paid extra for UNLIMITED high speed data, but it still STOPS (not slows down, STOPS) at 2.5Gb. I’ve returned to their store 7 times for repairs and as of today 3/31/2015 THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING!! They are a bunch of arabian crooks.
