T-Mobile / terrible customer service experience
I'm having a terrible customer service experience from tmobile so far as it has $75 of my money. I was a happy camper when I was with Cingular except their customer service which I feel is very good compared to what I'm going through with T-Mobile now.
I was told that T-Mobile had the best customer service and some cool plans. I'm a member of the American Airlines AAdvantage Program and T-Mobile has a program promotion through American Airlines offering 8000 Miles for 1 year commitment. That sounded cool and I placed an order by calling [protected] on 12/8/2006 for a Black PEBL phone with 1 Year of service for $50(Eventually will be free after $50 dollars mail in rebate). I also placed an order for a PEBL PACK VPC & CASE for $19.99 along with this order. The order number for reference is 112775xxx(I'm putting x's for security purposes). I got an email order confirmation from T-Mobile and I didn't find any tracking number even after 3 days. So I called the customer service dept again and I was told that due to the glitch in their system, It didn't generate a tracking number and Tmobile rep said that they have to cancel the original order(Order Num 112775xxx) and do a reorder with a free overnight shipping. They finally re-ordered with a new order num 112808xxx. This time I saw a tracking number, but was shocked to see about $317($299+tax) on my credit card online statement, instead of $50 + taxes. So I called TMobile the same evening, and they apologized as usual for the mess up and T-Mobile rep told me that the amount will credited back to my Credit card account in 3 days. 3 days passed by and nothing happened and called again. And after repeated callings( I spoke
with atleast 15 representatives), finally the amount($250 + taxes) got credited back to my account after nearly 2 weeks.
During this period, it hurt me personally and finacially as T-Mobile was holding about $265 of my money . I promised my wife and kids to take them to restaurant and I could not go as my credit card had near maxed out. I have to curtail my grocery expenditure. I looked like a bad father and a bad husband. I lost nearly about 4 to 5 hours of my quality time in total by talking to the Customer Service Reps who took me no where instead of spending time with my wife and kids. I thought everything would be fine from there onwards and tried to put the whole thing behind. But I was wrong. On 1/4/2007, I got a email telling that a new line has been activated to my existing account, which I didn't approve at all. I got a package with a new black pebl phone and my credit card was charged for nearly $75 dollars, without my authorization. I called the tmobile service rep and she told me that there was an error and everything would be taken care of. When I looked at the invoice, it had an order number of 112775xxx(Which is the same order Which Initially I was told will be cancelled) and TMobile ofcourse did not cancel the original order. They messed up again. The customer service rep told me to send the package back using the return form or to return to the nearest t-mobile store. I returned the package to my nearest t-mobile store after driving 25 mins and spending my money on gas all because T-Mobile screwed up. I talked to some one from the administrative office and they told me that they will only credit back the $75 dollars after the receive the package and It would take 10 to 20 business days after they receive package. I cried foul and demanded as It's tmobile's fault that they are responsible for crediting the $75 dollars at once. She finally told me that she will transfer me to her supervisor and after waiting 20 mins, the line got disconnected or may she disconnected. Who Knows!. In a nutshell,TMobile has my $75 dollars again now and I feel betrayed and cheated by T-Mobile. Keeping my fingers crossed when I will get my money back!!
