Public Mobile's Customer Service Horrible - My experience (Please make a note).

Moderators haven't replied since July 31, 2018, which show their professionalism. In return, they can't expect professionalism as well. I haven't been able to use my phone number since then. I was on AutoPay for a 90-day plan. My credit card was already saved on the account. I have received the following text messages from 611 (Public Mobile): July 28 - "Public Mobile her. Just a heads up, your payment is due on Jul 31. If you're on AutoPay or have already paid, please ignore this message." July 29 - "Public Mobile here. Thank you for your payment. Your plan has been successfuly renewed! Let's keep the conversation going." July 31 - "Public Mobile here. Your plan did not renew because we did not receive your payment. Make a payment at publicmobile.ca/selfserve. If you have recently made a manual payment, please ignore this message." On July 31, when my plan stopped working, I went online and paid the Amount that was due. My credit card is already saved; so didn't have to enter any credit card information. I just selected pay Amount Due. Then it was cleared. It showed Amount Due = $0. Even if I call 611, they say Amount Due is $0. Why did they message that my plan was successfully renewed? I still see Amount Due = $0 on my account website and on the phone by dialing *611. I called the credit card dispute department and they told me to wait till the transaction gets Posted (it is Authorized right now). I just want the refund immediately, so I can use the another cell phone service provider. Not a smart idea to lose customers like this. No services have been rendered for the 90 day prepay plan. This is the experience I am having. I know users like "ShawnC13", "NDesai", "will13am" will always defend Public Mobile. I feel they probably get paid by them to do such thing. Good for them. Of all the Moderators, only "Mary_M" took some initiative to reply or try to help, but at the end of the day, she didn't respond as well.

I still asked them to find me an immediate working solution so I can start using the plan. However, no response. There is nothing I see from my side except Account: Expired and Amount Due = $0. Public Mobile moderators didn't give a **bleep**..

@pmuser1990, yes I do like the brand but that does not mean I condone everything that they do or don't do.  I do call try to call it fairly like a referee.  If you look through the recent posts you will see that I have been one of the more critical customers calling for Public Mobile to officially provide an announcement concerning their ongoing software problems with details on the impact to the customer base and their remediation plans to minimize further customer inconvenience.  So far the request continues to be met with indifference which I believe is absolutely inhumane.  My suggestion to you and other affected customers is to initiate a CCTS complaint.  This is Public Mobile's knowledge base on this remedy.

BTW, the moderator team is not to blame for the problem.  They are short handed and can only do so much when there is a bow wave of interactions.

I called CCTS to reverse the credit card transaction. They told me to contact the merchant first. So contact Public Mobile? Haha this must be a joke.

When you put in the complaint, treat your private message as the attempt to reach out and have your problem resolved.

Hello @pmuser1990

 

I'm very sorry to hear about your payment issue, rest assured that your request from yesterday did not go unnoticed but due to a higher number of private messages we are currently experiencing a delay in responding back. 

 

I will personally take a look at this for you but I request you not to post any profanity on the community as this is going against our community guidelines. Also, sending multiples messages for the same issue will not prioritize your ticket in the queue as it will send it back down as a new ticket and results that you will have to wait longer which we don't want of course!  

 

Please wait for my private message. 

 

Thank you,
