Phone died a few weeks before warranty expired but it was not replaced or repaired

Reviewed on Thursday July 19, 2018 by , Alberta
I bought a Figo Virtue III on June 27, 2017 and it worked fine until June 2, 2018 when although it was fully charged, it stopped working and will not work since. I left the phone charging with the stock charger and USB cable for 1 hour but it still would not turn on. I filled in the 7-11 form and mailed the phone with receipt with all contents requested to the address on the form today. This is my business phone and while it is not working and in repair, I'm losing business. The tracking shows that it was delivered 11:00pm to their office on June 6, 2018.
US and CA RMA centers operate independently, however tickets and RMA's are issued in US. I do not have access to the Canada RMA center status, however its generally under 2 weeks.
Please give me an update on the status of the repairs to my phone and whether it has been shipped back to me as yet. It's difficult to get you guys to even acknowledge receipt, never mind when I will get the phone back.
I would love to provide an update but I cannot access Canada repair records. What I am going to do is send out an email to the Canada center asking for an update on this specific case. Once I hear back I will update you. Thank You!
The repair centre haven't even acknowledged receipt of it and today July 19, 2018, over 6 weeks and my ticket was removed by Figo and I never received a response from them nor have I received my phone back.

Phone is unsatisfactory

Reviewed on Wednesday June 13, 2018 by , Fenwick Ontario
Let me start by stating I hate this phone. Numbers & letters too TINY. Instructions non existent. Sim card for this phone is insanely thin & looks like a tiny piece of cardboard. Phone is activated but does not work. Yet even though I turned it off and have never done any settings somehow the phone chooses to send off a LOUD alarm every 4 hours - tho I've never set an alarm. I will take the loss I guess because I will NEVER use this phone. Ever.

Good phone for the price

I also bought this as an emergency phone for my kids on the 7-11 SpeakOut plan.

For a $60 (7-11 deal), it a good phone for the price.

Nul selon moi

Premièrement,l'écran est extrêmement fragile.Ne le mettez pas dans votre poche arrière !!Le mien a craqué.. deuxièmement, c'était la première fois que je voyais qu'un cellulaire pouvait laguer juste pour effectuer un appel.Même pour prendre un appel,le téléphone peut laguer...Bref,50$c'est bien attrayant mais ce n'est pas la bonne idée à faire.... vous le regretterez...Sortez 40-50$ de plus et vous aurez quelque chose de deux fois plus fiable, comme un motorola par exemple.Ce n'est que mon opinion personnelle mais ça m'a fait du bien de vous en parler...😊

Great smartphone for the price

7-11 Speakout Wireless special, buy $100 airtime and get the phone for $39. I can't imagine a better deal, and got them for each of my kids. It basically does everything an iPhone does -- if slower and maybe not as well -- but at a fraction of the price. It's just what we've been waiting for.

Just bought this phone - looks like it is defective. Very lower part of the screen doesn't work.
If you press center icon, right one get pressed, if you press right icon - nothing happening.. Looks like finger location and click misaligned for about 2 cm.
Going to return.

Some good, some bad

Reviewed on Tuesday March 14, 2017 by , Toronto, Ontario
At first this phone drove me crazy because the digitizer seemed to have a serious skew to the left. I had to hit every key to the left side. It seemed to improve after a couple of weeks and, one day, it simply corrected itself and works fine. It does not do Facebook well and can sometimes hang for internet surfing. (I do not have a data plan and only use wifi.) Overall it works well for the money. The screen in daylight is not good. Texting and calls are both good and it allows me to put a fair amount of apps over to the memory card. I am sure it does not compare to a more expensive phone but when you consider that I got it for free with a purchase of $100 in Speakout airtime, it is quite good.

Figo Virtue 3 Review

Reviewed on Friday February 24, 2017 by , Hamilton, ON Canada
I recently purchased and unlocked Figo Virtue 3 from a local 7eleven store for $79.95. You can purchase this as a stand-alone prodcut or with cell time, messaging and data through SpeakOut Wireless Canada (utilizing Rogers Wireless towers). Rates are about .25 cents per minute with the following noteworthy extras available at the time of purchasing the Virtue 3: when you purchase a $50 top up airtime voucher you receive $20 off the price of the cell (airtime and cellphone cost combined) or receive $25 off the cell phone and an additional $30 off the total bill including cell airtime. This brings the cost of the cellphone to $49.95 and $100 airtime to $70.00. In my opinion there are NO other cellphones even close to the Virtue 3 with its features and performance for this price!
The Virtue 3 is unlocked from the factory and required NO additional OTA software downloads or apps in order to take advantage of any of its features. It also has DUAL SIM card slots that work without any difficulties. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is a charm and a nice refinement to its predecessors. Time to boot up and shut down is super fast. Best I've tested to date! Battery charge time and life are also, for the size of battery and overall weight of cellphone is the best overall respectively I've used to date as well.
My reasoning for using two SIM cards is two-fold. I can run two cell numbers with one cellphone (personal line and business line combined in one) and if my primary smaller service provider's service is down, running sluggish or I'm in a non-4G service area I can take advantage of SpeakOut's service that should be up and running without any issues. Consider that SpeakOut's minutes "rollover" for up to ONE YEAR (unheard of in prepaid minute plans). I think of paying an extra $50 to get my cellphone for $59.95 as an annual cell service quasi-insurance plan. Two thumbs up for the Figo Virtue 3 along with SpeakOut Wireless!
