blog Hey everyone, just a quick update on my plans to dump my iPhone 4 for a HTC One XL today. This afternoon, after going for a run around the Domain with a mate, I went into Telstra’s T-Life store in Sydney’s central business district to proceed with the purchase.
Unfortunately, at the store I was informed by a Telstra staff member and his manager that they would not sell me a HTC One XL because I did not have enough points of identification on me; normally when I go for a run I only take an ATM card and my mobile phone. That was all I had today.
I offered to provide them with whatever details about my account or personal information they wanted to identify me, but they declined the opportunity. I briefly considered taking the “don’t you know who I am” approach, but came to the conclusion that I would merely embarass myself. I’ll head back in tomorrow with my full wallet and try again. In the meantime, this is my response to you, Telstra retail staff:
