    Had a lil fun

    So I went into a Cricket Corp store today and bought another Merc. After the sale and account setup, I put my SDCard with the Update to ICS data in it and updated my phone right there in front of the employess and customers. After doing so, I passed along my business cards to the customers and told them I would be in the parking lot for 2 hours and could do the update for them on their Mercs for $35 a pop.

    Long story short, 2 hours ended up being 4, and that Corp store made quite a bit of money on Merc sales (6 of the employees bought new phones as well) and I made enough money to pay my rent next month. :-)

    Only reason why I was able to get away with this is because I know the manager at that specific store, otherwise I probably would have been run off right away.

    I spoke to him about it first of course, don't like burning bridges, he agreed only because he saw the potential for sales, and we both profit in the end.

    How about all the problems that area associated with updating to ICS? Some reported no wifi and others the 3G would drop constantly.....

    i have yet to run into any of those problems, but i do offer my customers 15 day garauntees and everyone i upgraded has my card and phone numbers so if they need to reach me they can.

    my wifes phone was the first one i did and she has yet to run into any issues, and i now have a merc again as my playtoy, so if i find any issues i can look into them.
