  • While delivering the information, keep all of the positioning statements handy and maintain the tone. The positioning statements include affirming users that the iPhone 4 shipped is the best product, correlating the network issues with other handsets like iPhone 3GS and the various gripping methods that can be followed whilst holding the handset so as to get proper reception.
  • Use the Positioning above and do not perform warranty service for any customer questions or concerns.
  • If a customer calls about their reception while the phone is sitting on a table (not being held) it is not the metal band. Don’t forget YOU STILL NEED to probe and troubleshoot.
  • Escalate issues ONLY when the phone is not held AND they cannot be resolved.
  • DON’T promise a free bumper to customers as We ARE NOT appeasing customers with free bumpers.
