Victory shall be mine!

I’d like to share with you a brief email conversation that I had today.  When I wrote my A to Z of me post, I discover the Family Guy website where one can download ringtones.  Which I did.  And only the first word or two got sent to my phone.  I contacted them and asked them to remedy the situation.  To which I received no response.  So this morning I sent another.  Enjoy!

2nd inquiry re: Orders 201381 & 201371 I downloaded ringtones and they are incomplete. Is there something I can do to receive the whole ringtone or otherwise have the charges removed from my bill? Thank you.

Ms. S,

The ringtones are often clipped to in order to maximize their functioning on your handset. In the terms and conditions we state that our products may not exactly match the previews. Unfortunately, we do not have the means to credit your Verizon account to refund you. If you like, you can pick another ringtone and I can send it to you free of charge. Let me know if that sounds ok.

Dear Mr. Antoniou ~

I appreciate your email back.

I’m not in the habit of arguing over $4 because in the end it’s just not worth it.  However, I would like to bring to your attention that there is a great difference between “not exactly matching the previews” and cutting off after the first word.  I do appreciate your offer of a free download, however, it doesn’t seem worth anyone’s effort as there is not much humor in that first word – wouldn’t you agree? 

Should you come by “the means” to reverse the charges on my Verizon account – which I would imagine is possible since you had the means to charge it – I would appreciate the credit.  Otherwise, please spend the $4 wisely.

Thank you, Elizabeth

Dear Ms. S,

I’ve tinkered with the Brian ringtone and resent it to you.  I cant be sure that it will work properly, but there is a chance that it will be longer.  Please let me know.  If it works out, I can resend you the other one as well.



Thank you. I appreciate your efforts.

Great news.  I’ve resent the Stewie one as well.  Enjoy.  Sorry for the inconvenience, it seems I was under the wrong impressiong.


END RESULT:  Moments later, I received both ordered tones in their entirety.
