Handango - Any alternatives for software?

[ Edited ]

Are there any alternatives to Handango for purchasing software for my Curve 8310? Handango stinks. :smileymad:

 

1. Purchased 2 software titles there today. Downloaded to PC. Went to Unzip and received WinZip error message.. "Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive".

- Deleted from desktop and tried 2 more times. Same message.

- Tried to Open from the Order form. Same message.

 

2. Handango's website continually crashes when trying to navigate (Page not found)... forced to keep trying.. sometimes the link goes through.

 

Couldn't seem to find any forum or support group for Handango.

 

BTW, I'm using WinZip 9.0 SR-1.

 

Left an e-mail about this with their Customer Support, but I hate relying on others to get back to me. I will GLADLY PAY for long-distance costs.. just give me a telephone number.

 

No telephone number to call.. Took some searching to find a telephone number. When you do call their Corporate offices for support, you get a message they're only open 9-5 CST M-Th and 9-12 CST F. Well, duh.. some of us work during the week.

Hi,

Crackberry.com has a reputable store.

I haven't had a problem with Handango, and many on the forums see to like them as well.

You may have encountered a "black hole" in their operations!

Thanks,

Re: Handango - Any alternatives for software?

Thanks! I'll look. Unfortunately, I paid for some software that I now cannot download properly. I don't want to pay twice, unless I contest the Handango charges with my CC company.

 

Had similar problems last week with Handango. My guess is that since they're running a legacy AND a beta site simultaneous, they're having some problems. NO problems with any other website.. none.

 

Doesn't justify the total lack of sales support during times other than the hours specified in their telephone message header. Geez, you'd think they would display those hours on their website, thereby saving people like me a long-distance call.

Maybe it helps to maintain the illusion that the internet (and Handango) never closes?

I have been downloading some freeware from syncpedia.com

They don't have much commercial ware yet though.
