I would like to share my recent experience with celcom customer service:
6/5/2011 – i paid my latest celcom bill via maybank2u.
9/5/2011 – i apply to porting my no to other service provider. (being offered better plan)
10/5/2011 – other service provider inform me that my request to porting my no denied by celcom. asked to contact celcom.
10/5/2011 – contacted celcom customer service (1111) to know the reason my porting denied. being told because i havent settle the bill yet. asked to email payment receipt. did that. contact 1111 again after a while to know the status. being told email no longer in used, asked to faxed. did that. after a while called 1111 again to check the status. being told faxed not received, even though my fax machine says fax send and completed to celcom axiata. faxed the receipt again twice just in case, still not received by celcom.
feel unhappy. feel like celcom dont want to acknowledge my payment. being made to understand maybank2u payment will be updated instantly but this already passed 4 days. check maybank statement, money being deducted from account. where this money goes to if celcom does not receive it? register complaint to celcom online. celcom acknowledge the complain.
11/5/2011 – called 1111 again if my payment received. negative. try to checked if faxed received. no definite answer instead person online mumbling about my registered complain and told my complain will take few days to be handled. i just want to know if yesterday fax received. faxed the receipt again. and will call them again tomorrow to check.
feeling victimised and frustrated for being treated like stupid. Feel like celcom doesnt like me to porting (switch to other service provider).
So you people out there just be careful. if you dont have any issue you are ok but once you need to contact celcom customer service, your frustration may begin. maybe that what they want so that you wont bother them... maybe?
p/s - dato' sri shazali, please look into celcom customer service. its ruining your reputation.
