WHY IS OCULUS A PIECE OF CRAP???

Never in my life have I seen such junk. All you can download is the free crap. Trying to purchase an app is impossible. You seek help, and they tell you to click on things that don't even exist. This Oculus Quest was a total waste of money. A few years ago my son, who was at that time in his 20's designed a VR app that put this stuff to shame. I have absolutely nothing good to say about Oculus. PURE JUNK!

    You sound like a man who's on the verge of ripping his shirt open and screaming at the sky.

    I think kojack asked in your thread about the PIN problem what method you were using and which step you were getting stuck on.

    Presumably you weren't able to reset your pin, which method did you try and exactly what response did you get with each step?

    I know you are frustrated and I can sympathize, but you can't possibly believe that this is a common occurrence. Millions of people are buying games on a regular basis.

    *looks at library of bought games*
    Funny, looks like it is possible to buy games. If you're barred due to forgetting your PIN, maybe you should have written it down somewhere (that isn't online)? Might be possible to reset or change it. If it's a different problem, how is anyone (even support) suppose to help you if all you do is rant about how 'crap' the product is?

    As a side note, your Oculus Quest is hardware, not software. Even if you're having issues with the Oculus store, grab your charge cord and plug it into one of your PC's USB C ports. You can then access Steam VR. That of course assumes you have a VR capable PC. Considering you (the OP) say your son created a VR app that's 'better then the quest', I'm assuming you do have one.

    As another side note, how the heck do you judge a VR app to be "better" then the hardware it's ran on anyway?!

    I think from the Op's original thread that there was a problem setting up the PIN during the initial setup, possibly a glitch with the app, but if they can provide more specific steps that were taken perhaps someone here can help.

    I buy most of my Oculus Store content right here on the Oculus website, then download it to my PC or Quest (depending on if it's Rift or Quest content). And the few times I had an issue, customer support was rather prompt in helping me resolve it.

    Don't worry.  You can at the very least remember your pin quite easily by typing 0000 to 9999.

    Time consuming though.

    But in all seriousness have you contacted ACTUAL Oculus support regarding this "issue" of yours?

    support.oculus.com is where you want to go.  This forum is NOT Oculus Support.

    In his other thread he contacted support and tried everything. But as I say it could be useful to have the details here as someone may have had the same problem and could help.

    Yeah go to oculus support as they will be able to help you, although you will have to have some patience as these are still trying times for the world in general, and yes it will be frustrating, but try them as i am sure they will be able to sort your issue out.

    Same here.  I've used Oculus support twice in two+ years and was promptly (prompt as in within 24 hours) responded to.
