RadioShack Launches FREE Mobile Product Support

While we usually have the best price in town on cellphones and tablets, it’s still important that we give our customers great reasons to shop at RadioShack. We already do this with our no mail-in rebates policy, along with our incredibly popular Trade and Save program and Upgrade Checker. However, we wanted to go one step further to really give our customers the best experience possible. That’s why we’re launching RadioShack’s Mobile Product Support, a FREE service for RadioShack customers!

RadioShack FREE Expert Support Mobile Product Support

So, what is it? RadioShack Mobile Product Support lets you get a helping hand whenever you need it, however you need it, so that you can get the most from your new (or somewhat old) device. It’s available exclusively to RadioShack customers, too – you’re automatically signed up whenever you buy your new phone or tablet.

There are several ways that you can access RadioShack Mobile Product Support:

  • 1-855-RSHELPU (1-855-774-3578) - this toll-free number is available 7 days a week from 6a-12a PST. Our call center is located in the Pacific Northwest, up in Washington State, and is designed specifically to offer YOU a great experience. You won’t have to wade through a bunch of menus, and you’ll get a real live human being – no bots here.
  • Email - you can send an email through our Mobile Product Support site and get a response within 4 hours, guaranteed (usually it’s even faster than that!)
  • Live Chat – you can chat live with an agent 7 days a week from 6a-12a PST, if you’d prefer immediate response. It’s a great way to get help for something on your phone, especially.
  • How-To guides and a Support Forum – if you prefer to find your own answers, but need a little help, we can do that, too. We have how-to guides created specifically for YOUR device, complete with screenshots, to help you get the most out of your new toy. The Support Forum is also a great place to connect with others for assistance.
  • Mobile App – the best part, however, is our new Mobile App! The RadioShack Mobile Product Support App automatically detects the phone that you have it installed on and serves up how-to’s and guides for that specific phone. You can also use the app to immediately connect with our Mobile Product Support team, or to keep up with us on Twitter and Facebook. Here’s a video showing off the cool new features:

The RadioShack Mobile Product Support App is currently available on the Android Market, and will be available on iTunes soon, with other versions coming shortly after.

So, now when you get your new cellphone or tablet at RadioShack, you can know that The Shack has your back for as long as you own your device. Cruise on over to the RadioShack Mobile Product Support site to check it out, or get answers to any other questions at our Support FAQ.

What’s your favorite part of the new RadioShack Mobile Product Support service?

    Your policy Sucks to ask people their Social Security Number so somebody at some random *** store could have your info, and tell me it’s your dumb *** policy that has them requesting it. It’s no wonder Identity theft if one of the most common crime today. Excuse my language or edit it I’m pissed.

    OK, I am not tech savvy; Read my manual. Nothing on how to delete phone numbers. I have experimented; can’t delete any. I admit; I am old and a pencil and paper kind of woman!

  • David Miller

    Dear Dianne – try pressing and holding on the contact in which you want to delete.when you release your finger it should bring up an option screen,press delete…

  • hozefa

    i bought blackberry playbook…does that covered under mobile support????

  • Daniel Gamboa

    hozefa,

    Your blackberry playbook should be covered under our mobile product support policy. All you have to do is take it to a Radio Shack and ask for a brochure and they’ll be able to set it up for you no problem.

  • Steve Calandro

    I want to thank Don, the tech support rep I spoke with at 11:00 PM last night (2/28/2012). He stayed with me for over 45 minutes to guide me thorough multiple attempts to restore data service to my OLD Samsung Windows phone. It had spontaneously lost email capability, my stored email, nav capability, and the ability to do anything but make a call and use text messaging.

    He researched and patiently walked me through option after option, ultimately guiding me to a factor reset.

    After hanging up, I successfully restored email and other lost functionality. (It too hours to synch up with my desktop Outlook, but that’s a MS thing.)

    Thank you Don for all your help and patience. You are the tech support guy a customer needs at 11:00 PM.

    YOUR ROCK! Steve

    i just bougth iphone 4s and i it wont let me put my verizon email can u help me with this problem

  • Manny

    @David Othello. Radioshack only ask for your Social Security number if you’re applying for a phone. And in that case, it is the cell phone carrier that needs it to check your credit to see if you need a deposit or not. Not RS. I

  • Doughsellz

    @David Othello. In addition to Manny’s reply I can attest that most stores will have you either present your SSN in card form or have you write it on paper (which will be returned to you) so as not to allow other customers the opportunity to hear you speak your SSN out loud. Radio Shack & it’s employees respect your privacy.
