* Social Media 101: Social Media Crisis 20 Sprint wireless Situation: Its Black Friday and Sprint is offering a dynamite and highly marketed deal on three Samsung phones, including one of the leading ones on the market. Demand is high causing its website to crash and phone lines are tied up. Customers are upset and saying it. Sprint Michael Adsit Jr - With such a hot deal the webpage is extremely busy. I really appreciate your patience with the site. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions and I'll be happy to help as much as I can. I sincerely hope your friend's dad gets better soon, he is in my thoughts! *Ben Sprint Letitia Monsey - I'm sorry about the issues with sprint.com. Were you able to get your order processed? Also, for the activation fee wavier, was this a new line of service or an upgrade? Please let me know and I can help you complete the order if need be. Thank you *KC Jeff Teamdeadlyhertz Lockhart Thats BS, you just tried and got through? Are you kidding me, I have been trying non stop now since 3PM eastern and every time I get an error...now I get this message that you all are enhancing the site...how is it you just get through? I have been with Nextel since 1998 and with Sprint ever since the merger, with 4 lines on my account. If I cant get through in the next 15 minutes. Me and my 4 lines wont be a Sprint issue anymore. This is crazy Michael Howard Schine Turned away at store because they are sold out. Called 800SPRINT1 on the flyer; they are closed. Tried sprint.com/holiday, but the purchase section is temporarily unavailable. Tried 8668667509, told 15 minutes wait and press "1" to hold, received a rapid busy signal. Store implied offer is limited quanities. Seems like Sprint, a telecommunication company, does not have telecommunication capability to handle current customers. Very disappointed. Sprint Kasey Ann - I'm here for you! I would need to look at your account to check for the order. Can you please email me your phone#, PIN and any order details you are willing to provide to Sprintcares@sprint.com Attn:KC. I want to get to the bottom of this for you. Thank you *KC
