Help with my Groupon issue
GetHuman-bjgarron's next move: try the Groupon help center again.
Groupon doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-bjgarron will want to follow the link below to head to their help center. We will check on GetHuman-bjgarron later to make sure it's all set or try to help escalate.
The issue in GetHuman-bjgarron's own words
Call and text but it seems to be limited to other Iphones and I am only able to call or text while connected to wifi. I can not update the phone or access cellular data. ... Hi Groupon, in the winter i had purchased a phone that claimed to be gsm unlocked but i have not been able to update the phone or get it connected with my phone company. I contacted apple and they directed me to get in contact with the seller to unlock the phone. Can you please give me the contact information, or direct them to get in touch with me regarding "Apple IPhone *** Plus (GSM Unlocked) (Scratch and Dent) with MFi- Certified Lightning Cable with *-Year Warranty".I am only able to use the phone with wifi and have no access to cellular data. Please help me with this so that I can use the phone to it's full capabilities.
This is not something that my phone company or I can fix. Apple clearly said that it is the seller of the product that needs to unlock the phone and that Apple themselves can not do it.
Have the seller of the phone contact me through email so that we can go about unlocking the phone because it is generally inconvenient to operate the phone under its current gsm locked condition.
I am a fairly new customer, having only purchased *-* items. The other items work flawlessly but I suppose I expected a product that was easy to use and did not require extensive set up.
I have emailed groupon, tried to use their help center, as well as troubleshoot this issue with Apple services.
I have an issue with Groupon too
