Poly.com / Polycom / Plantronicssoundstation2

I have been a loyal Polycom and Plantronics customer for twenty years, buying thousands of dollars' worth of products from them. I live outside the U.S. Due to electrical power differences, some of their telephone accessories, such as power supplies and wall modules, require local versions, which Polycom does make. Their products are the most expensive in their market. Due to their greed, however, instead of replacing my U.S. wall module, they refer me to their Sales Department, to buy another product. My messages to their leadership, including their CEO Joe Burton, have been ignored. They should replace my U.S. wall module with their European or Universal one without further delay.

      Polycomuseless customer support

      I called Polycom customer support to ask about interop with other phones. Every other IP phone displays video immediately as soon as they receive it, but polycom phone have a delay of 3 seconds. The tech support did not have any knowledge about what I am talking about and kep giving me nonsense suggestions. I probed further and he said I would have to call back with the reseller. It's as if he was doing me a favor of talking to me. This is really bad.

      pathetic customer service and a company which doesn't care.

        Plantronics Backbeat 903Defective Merchandise

        I received my order of bluetooth headphones from this website and as soon as the device was plugged in for the 3 hours it takes to fully charge (stated in the manual) the device will not indicate fully charged, nor turn on. I emailed their customer service and they said the item needs to be charged for 24hours and if i have an issue to contact plantronics and utilize the 1 year warranty. Yet the item does not come with any paperwork or indication of a warranty and is not even in the original packaging. Now they are saying they do not accept returns or exchanges even though they sent me defective equipment. HORRIBLE BUSINESS

          IP Phone Warehouse / PolyCom 335 IPI'm trying to help these people improve their customer service and they give me the brick-wall run-aroun

          After purchasing a PolyCom 335 IP phone and receiving it in an appropriate amount of time, I opened the box to discover that there is no power supply.

          This is somewhat frustrating, but I was sure that I overlooked some notice when ordering that the phone didn't have one and I needed to order it separately.

          I called to request that IPPhone-Warehouse make a better effort to inform their customers that a necessary part might be needed.

          Herein lies the problem.

          The first CS rep, Tyler, put me on hold and after about 10 minutes, disconnected my call. I called back and spoke with Becky who informed me that Tyler had left his desk for a moment **and** was on another call. Obviously untrue, because you can't be on another call if you've left your desk. I pressed her on this point and she then said that Tyler had left for lunch. Right.

          So I asked if her company could make a more concerted effort to inform their customers that an essential part might be needed. She said there was nothing they could do, but I could buy a $5 power supply for $16.99 plus $10 shipping. (Turns out it is only $11.99 plus $10 shipping, but the cost is not the issue anyway).

          I pressed her again about trying to do a better job informing their customers when an essential part was needed and she said they could not discount the power supply.

          Again, we're not communicating. I said nothing about any discount and told her - point blank - again that I was concerned about customer service, not cost.

          She placed me on hold and came back to inform me that, after checking into it, there was nothing they could do to discount the power supply.

          Maddening!

          I asked Becky who she asked and she said it was her manager. So I asked to speak with said manager.

          "No. I can take your contact information and have them call you back."

          Arrrrrgghhhhhh!

          I'm trying to help these people improve their customer service and they give me the brick-wall run-around!

              I received a product from them with a software bug. I worked with the manufacturer from day 1 to 30 day to resolve the issue. At the end of 30 days I tried to return the product because it was nonfunctional. Day 30 was a Sunday. Monday morning, day 30+1 hour, they would not take the device back. I provided them with bug reports that were unresolved but their support just hung up on me when I called to speak with them about it. I was neither abusive nor rude, just persistent. Their way of dealing with an issue was to simply ignore the problem.

              I would not recommend ever purchasing from this place for any reason. This was the worst customer service I've encountered in quite some time.

            N1 Wireless / Plantronics 925N1wireless is not a legal distributor of Plantronics products

            Just a follow-up to a previous complaint - On 6/11/09 2pm CST I spoke with tech support at Plantronics USA, and discussed N1Wireless specifically. Their statement concerning N1wireless was, "N1wireless is not a legal distributor of Plantronics products. The only products that they can acquire are defective or incomplete products. These products are not warranted by Plantronics." N1Wireless and one other company are under active legal action with Plantronics. Do not purchase from this company!

              N1 Wireless / Plantronics 925Do not become another victim of these crooks

              I guess I'm another victim - I purchased a Plantronics Discovery headset, only to have it arrive DOA. I tried their "RMA" link - no response. I tried direct email - no response. I tried the phone - they never answer it, or return calls. And my guess is that it's a gray-market item that won't be covered under Plantronics product warranty. I will go out of my way to help people avoid this company - how do we report them and make them accountable for bad business practices?
