I love how these "stories" are picked up when A: you don't know if the story is true, and B: it then becomes news... anyone could write something like this, and claim it happened with no proof, and every news site would pick up on it and post it cause it draws clicks.

The rep was trying to prevent an inevitable exchange. Customers see free and want it, despite the fact that they might not know anything about the phone.

When I go in to buy something I know what I want, and I ask for it. If they tell me I should get something else I just silently look at them. After a bit they go get what I want.

I hate when salespersons are trying to start a lengthy talk with obvious nerds over things they barely know the 5 bullet points of the brochure about.

It sounds legit.
