Lesson learned is don't mess around with companies that you can't afford to pi** off.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Or hide your tracks.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I'm always paranoid about losing all my emails. I have multiple accounts with Google/live mail and yahoo. All my emails are forwarded to them so everything is backed up.

But I'd love to have a private server :)

no, the lesson is, mess around with them, but only use accounts that you can afford to lose  ;)😅
And I did not think I was doing anything wrong, as if I did, I would have done above

They should have canceled the orders not the account

And AA should just cancel the award and not the account when they catch a sale?
What lesson would that show?

Google isn't dumb.
what do they gain now, they alredy shipped the phones,
And most ppl used non primary accounts, as if you have a Google voice number, you loose it..
It will probably be easier for me to open new accounts and update my email addresses, then fighting with them

Unless
The csr is waiting to hear back from the specialist and she will give me a callback when she does. I'll keep you posted
comes back with positive news

did you tell them that you ordered too many phones and apologize? or played dumb like you don't know what's going on?

Lesson to you and the internets: Don't $%^& with The Google.

Claim ignorance, apologize, and beg for mercy. Usually works once with AA.

they aren't upset that we bought phones, it's when we bought them..
So yes, canceling the orders does solve the problem that they had
