I just recieved a Samsung SPH-i300 as a gift. The phone was purchased on EBay from Misty Electronics. When I opened the phone, I found that the ESN sticker under the battery was nowhere to be found. In fact, based on the fact that the area where it would be was sticky, I have reason to believe it was deliberately removed. Also, the instructions on how to activate the phone on Verizon said the ESN would be on the box the phone came in. Once again, nowhere to be found. So right now I basically have a PDA with no phone. Nice racket this guy has, selling phones you can't activate.
I ordered the LG pm-325. They sent me one with the same funky instructions that didnt work and a bunk battery, plus the backing for an extended battery so the phone looks deformed. I sent an email to "Steve" at Misty Electronics and he blew me off with sarcastic comments. Zero customer service and a total fraud company.
You are sure right - the guy has a "nice racket" going - sent the phone back as he told me to, Delivery Confirmation - and somehow mysteriously, he never received it. What really happened is, the post office never scanned it and he got the phone back and never told anyone. Now I am out the money and the phone. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE ON EBAY AND WILL NEVER BUY FROM MISTY ELECTRONICS AGAIN! Scam artist..
Stolen - iPhone 3G, V620, Krzr, W810i, Dash. Gotta love NY
MPx 300 *****es!!
6 years and still at it? With CDMA phones to boot? Google map this "Misty", post results. Google "Misty Electronics" and the more posts across the internet increase the odds of this outfit getting better Google results exposing the ESN shenanigans. AFA ESNs, find a code to get the true ESN from the EEPROMM and try again, some refurbers don't re-affix the label to the new housing, IMO that actually looks shadier since the labels often crack, akin to attempted duping of car inspections. IMO 6 years in, it's user error. CDMA tomfoolery is much harder to accomplish 1ce, let alone 6 years worth, also, Nice rackets dont generally last that long from what I've seen.
Man, this guy is a piece of work that sells mobile phones on eBay. I've made two purchases from Misty Electronics. The second transaction went awry and this is when I saw Mr. Selvaggio's true colors. I didn't receive my phone, mind you the tracking info said I did, but this is a situation where the parcel is dumped at the door and/or mailbox without a signature. I received a cut and paste canned response stating that I needed to deal with the USPS, period. After I left negative eBay feedback for Misty Electronics, Stephen chastised me for filing a PayPal complaint and then criticized me for not jumping on emails with regards to his bellyaching about my negative feedback. Oh, the best part was Steve posted tracking information as a rebuttal, mind you it goes against eBay's policy of posting personal information (address) in a review. eBay removed the tracking number from my feedback. Eventually, Stephen offered a full refund, but the damage was already done. You can't buy me for $35 bud. I checked eBay today and now my and other recent negative reviews are MIA, this guy is relentless to CYA. Is Steve related to one of the Housewives of New Jersey?
Misty Electronics has had 14 complaints with the BBB, an organization which I find questionable since they always seem to protect their paying members. Of course, Mr. Selvaggio's BBB A+ rating cracks me up.
