OK, so I wanted to buy an app, from the Store. Went into Wallet and set up a credit card. What! it does not show up in my wallet. I go to commerce.microsoft.com and there it is.
The only option showing, on my phone, when I try to purchase is charge to Telus Account.
I go to Microsoft and they say Telus is blocking the credit card from being used (!!!???!!!). I need to contact Telus. OK, I will.
In the mean time, I figure I will buy this using my Telus account. I go in and pick it out. I hit buy and it comes back and says you are not set up to charge to your Telus account!!!!!
I contact Telus. No, you cannot use a credit card OK, then what about charging to my Telus account? Nope, you are on prepaid
Quote: "No one subscribing to Prepaid service can purchase apps from the Windows Phone Store. I am not aware if restrictions apply to iPhone or BlackBerry" So, how do they do it??????
You are kidding, right? Now, Telus sells my phone (520) as prepaid only, so I had to pay full pop. If I were able to buy it on a plan, at least, I would have got a discount.
OK, so now I'm pretty pissed, not at the rep, he's just doing his job. So, I say "how do I get my phone unlocked?". And, just to **** me off more I get this reply:
"The unlock code is not available for purchase on Prepaid phones. You can search the Internet for third parties offering save unlocking services or consult with a retail store selling wireless products and they may be aware of third parties in your area".
So, after I have vented, I have two questions:
1. anyone out there, on a Telus prepaid, that has been able to buy apps?
2. is there a way to download the apps via the web and install?
I'd love to dump these turkeys, but I have too much money built up, on account, and don't want to lose it.
