New contract complete farse

I am an EE mobile customer but wanted the 512Gb iPad which EE don't do so ordered one pay monthly from O2.

 

Everything went through as expected, order was completed and showing as ready to collect. I went to the store to collect and was told I needed I need a four digit number which I had never received. The store spent about an hour trying to figure it out as they could see my order, had the iPad, but couldn't release it without the number. The store were advised that I would have to contact support to figure this out.

 

After spending an hour on the phone to support I was told that they couldn't provide the code, but that if I went back to the store they could sort it. So, I went back to the store who again referred me back to support.

 

So there you have it. I have an iPad, and no one knows absolutely anything at all about what can be done about me getting it. Not to worry though, apparently if I don't collect the iPad within 7 days it will automatically cancel, but I won't get back the money I paid up front.

 

It has been hassle, but with customer service like that I sense I may have paid a small fee to dodge a bullet in the future.

 

Complete farse.

Wouldn't the code they was on about be sent to the iPad SIM card if they had activated it in a phone or something

Not before you had collected it no. It should be emailed so might be in spam or wrong emails address?
