Simple Mobile - refuse to honor my refund

I purchased a phone on January 8th of 2022 order #45549641. The phone was not to my liking and was unopened, so I called customer service and spoke to someone in the returns department who assured me since it was unopened, I can send it back and get a refund. The package was sent out January 13th and received by their office January 18th. It has been 3-5 business days since they received my returned package and they have still not notified me of my refund being processed or why my package I sent back is not open. When I sent it first class mail and had it signed upon delivery to their mail room as proof, they received it at the correct address I was given to return the phone.

Desired outcome: I would like my refund

Simple Mobile - Service Plan ID invalid

I purchased a Serice plan PIN and sim card at a Dollar General Store on 1/7/2022 around 6:52 PM. I went home to simple mobile's website to activate the sim and re-up minutes using my email address and created an account PIN Confirmation page said that everything went through but I did not receive my new telephone number it said phone number Pending. I restarted my phone and attempted to make a call and no service. I contacted a rep via chat whose name was Richmond, He was not able to resolve the issue and said that another rep would call back but never did. I called customer service on 1/8/2022 and the rep said she could not pull up an account using a sim number because there was no account pin established. I created the account in order to activate the sim and plan PIN. So, there was nothing she could do to troubleshoot the phone. I basically wasted $30 for no service.

Desired outcome: Refund or issue resolved

Simple Mobile - Refund/Ripoff company/DO NOT USE!

I purchased a phone for my son on 06/2021. After the $50 plan was due for a Re-up. On 07/2021, My son's father went through the Simple Mobile App and chose the $25 plan just to get him by. Well, no re-up ever happened. By the 13th of July. I called to see what the problem was . Well their system sent the payment to a completely different number. They told me the phone would be in service with in the hour. That I should turn off and on the phone and it would be just fine. HA! joke was on me! I called back the next day and they told me to do it again, so I did. After the 4th attempt. I informed the operator that I will just be taking my service elsewhere. She said ok and l would not have any problems porting over the number to a new company. Again, joke was on me! Simple Mobile deactivated the number before I had time to post it over that same night! Now when I called to get a refund for the re-up payment made on 7/03/2021 . They clam they can't find any information on the account. Funny cause I was able to pull it all up while still speaking to them. Not even a manager would help me. SMMFH! WORST PHONE COMPANY EVER!

Desired outcome: REFUND

Simple Mobile - Phone replacement

Working in 4TH PERSON since 8a. Its 853a now. Been on site since 6 a trying to buy replacement for 3yr old phone. Cheaper phones required buying plan but i already have one. NOT ONE PERSON yet gets that the bundle should be waived for current customer OR plan purchase with phone should be added as credit to next bill cycle. And why dont they have any noise filters or cubicle walls? Had to give my info 4 times unless rep was just f'ing with me. Finally get sales on line, gave card info to buy phone and he says his system is having issues. I tell him close his screen don't try rerunning it. If it processed great if not im moving on. The UTTER RIDICULOUSNESS!

Desired outcome: A phone with more space for apps!

I'm complaining as I did before a few times personally by phone to a few simple mobile operators about hearing person's on my phone which is a violation of privacy. Other than that I get good service on my phone. Simple mobile is as I understand due to reading on your company page an affiliate of tracfone. I don't know specifically if it tracks people a...

Simple Mobile - Online fraudulent order

I was charged on March 1$171.19 for a purchase online. It was made at 8 that morning according to the simple mobile rep . I had my card in my possession so I knew nobody had also this is a new card issued from my bank. They couldn't provide no information to the online order accept that it was a purchase using my debit card. The phone came 2 days later I called them again after I started dispute with my bank and the day order came to my house. They refused to give me a shipping label to return item bc the one that was attached was cut off from the parts with important information for delivery. The whole time during this process they refused to give me Information teguarding the charge like the email that was used to confirm the fraudulent charge made with my card. No confirmation email for an online order was sent to my email which they say is connected to my order . I think that's fraudulent and I'm seeking recovery and proper response about this situation.

Simple Mobile - Ordering online

I paid for a samsung galaxy a01 on thursday nov. 26th at 10:15 am it easy $32.09 after tax.. It charged my card but now simple mobile is claiming the order does not exist even though it shows up on my debit charges... I am a loyal lifetime simple mobile customer but after this i'm switching phone companies because now i'm out the $32 I paid for the phone! I tried to get them to look it up by card number, email, address and still nothing. All they can find is an order from 2019.. Can we please figure this out and it the charge on my card isn't simple mobile then there is a problem because I went through my actual account signed in on simple mobile with my rewards and everything when I ordered the phone on sale for black friday.

On 11/10/2018 I called in reference to my voicemail not working.although the voicemail was fixed it took 4 days to resolve the issue. During those 4 days I had to use email to retrieve messages that I should have been able to retreive using my voicemail, which caused me to use up my data a lot faster than I normally would have used it...I was assured by...

Simple Mobile - product & staff

This Whole Entire business needs to be SHUT DOWN. Its nothing but a scam! They even lie and pretend to be the manager/supervisor, when its just the same person who answer the first time. They must really suck to have to pretend to be something they are not! The service is HORRIBLE! I spoke too so many "supervisors" who said they put the GB's for my data on my phone. Said to turn it off, then turn it back on, it still never worked. I told the "supervisor" that another "supervisor" said it was done, he said she lied! I asked him if they all are liars, because I was told the same thing several times, and HE SAID YES! This just goes to show you none of them knows how to do their jobs and should be fired! THIS BUSINESS IS A SCAM! DO NOT BUY OR PURCHASE ANYYHING FROM THIS "COMPANY" THEY SHOULD BE OUT OF BUSINESS!

At first it wasn't too bad. The main problem was after my 4GB ran out, they didn't just slow me down, they weakened their signal to me. I couldn't even think about watching a 3 minute YouTube video without having to wait on it to buffer. After the data ran out, there wasn't any 30 second videos. It was so slow all it did was time out. So I got used to that...

My first time dealing with the service I got the $55 plan for 10gigabytes of fast high speed (4g LTE) data for 1 month, , and i was only at 6gigabytes they shut-off my high-speed data.. The second-time around with simplemobile, , i got the the unlimited-data-no limit 4g LTE for $60, , , and 5days later my service shutdown again, , , Called customer service and they say i was using too much data even though that is what i paid for.. This happend Sept. 2015... Simplemobile will say it is nothing they can do for you, , except wait for next month pay $60 again, , And simplemobile will restore your service... I was only 5 days into the service out of a month (means wait 25 days pay them again for them to do the samething) This company are Liars, , they will take you money shutdown your service before it ends and until you pay them again...the worst cellphone service i ever dealt with...

Simple Mobile bad!!. Bought a wrong $60 mobile broad band pin redeem to my cellphone plan (surprising it still go thru, even the wrong pin). Call the customer service, they said that they can not convert it to the $60 talk, text, internet plan. They force me to buy another $60 pin and pocket the other $60 without giving refund or exchange. Be careful with this company. What the rip off!!

I paid my bill and 30 minutes later my data and messaging stopped working. I called customer service and after 10 minutes, they hung up. I called back and was on the phone with them wasting my time for over 1 hour and they still did not fix my service. They will waste your time before they allow you to speak with a manager. Their call center is in India and...
