    Default Walked out of BestBuy with unactivated subsidized phone!

    I ordered a GS5 online at BB and chose in store pick-up. The mobile guy hadn't ever activated an online order before, and he couldn't get it to activate. So I suggested taking my old sim and trying it. Low and behold it worked, and so he left me go. My account still shows that I have an available upgrade on that line and bb shows that the order is unactivated. I guess my question is will they pickup on this? It appears that I got a contract free upgrade!

    Ya it'll eventually cancel itself. Big mistake on his part. I work at best buy, you could be a good person and go fix it, or wait and it'll cancel

    I figure they'll figure it out pretty quick. They have the paperwork, and they have my phone number.

    Doubtful. They need your approval to access your account. If they do it without your approval they get in a lot of trouble. They will eat it and you'll still be eligable for upgrade.

    You are doomed, my friend. Doomed.
    They will send a pack of feral cats after you, and nothing will be left but a phone laying on the sidewalk. Maybe a shoe.
    Hide now. Hide well. And mask your smell.
