I moved to Cox Cable because of the decent price they were offering which works for what I needed, but instead they sold me something I absolutely did not need. When I called back after a month(Just trying to be nice so I tried it out)to cancel the services I did not need, once again a customer rep( Shannon from Las Vegas)was doing everything she can to discourage me from removing some of my services. Why can't they understand that some people just don't need/want the services they are trying to shove down your throat. Who needs a home phone this days? And cable, one day will be obsolete!!! Cox cable is now turning out to be a bad decision I made. I guess cancelation is my best option
I was dumb enough to fall for the bundle from Cox for TV, Internet, and Phone. I did explain at the time that I only needed basic phone service with NO long distance, no added features, and a minimum charge for the phone service. The first month bill came in with charges for both long distance and collect calls. I live alone and know I did not place the calls or accept any collect calls. Checking the bill ALL of the long distance calls were operater assisted calls. I called Cox and was told by the CSR that they would check to find out why the blocks weren't working, then transferred to billing where the calls were credited back to my account. Second month: More charges for both long distance and collect calls! Same proceedure, called customer service and was told that she would escalate the issue to tech support to find out why the blocks were not working then another transfer to billing (with the long hold time, of course) where I was issued a credit. Third month: $300 dollars in long distance and collect calls! Again, called Customer Service where they will send the issue to tech support to find out why the blocks weren't working, and another transfer to billing where I was told that they can't block those calls AND that they don't issue credit for them! I called their corporate office in Atlanta and spoke to the problem resolution people who told me: They CAN block those calls and will find out why the block isn't working. They DID issue a credit for the calls. THEN they explained that if you have an answering machine and it picks up you WILL be charged for a collect call, even though you didn't actually answer the phone! They never did explain the operated assisted long distance calls though, or why their system isn't blocking them!
Pathetic service. Horrible customer service. To top it all, today I received a call mentioning that they are not going to provide service to residential customers any more. Thwy would like me to move to another provider by 14th but are not going to reduce my monthly bill if I move out earlier. Least customer friendly company.. Caution to all those commercial customers.. stay away from this company. I wish I could give a rating of "-1".
Pathetic Customer Service, they never respond to email or returns your voice messages. Calls disconnect or doesn't connect at all...after thousands of attempt if call is connected then they will apologize and will show sincerity and will promise to help yout but nothing happens afterwards... you call them again no response... Trust me you will go mad.. thye have no values on commitment. Cusotmer are jokes for them and they belive do what you can do, i dont give a damn to you.. They call quality is going down.. call often gets dropped and many times there is no service... when you call internatioanlly then call quality is often no good... Now i am trying to call them to cancel but no response..already send so many emails but no response and they are billing me full price regualrly.. I need to take them to consumer court and probably higher a lawyer to team them a lesson.... i dont know who gave them the license to run the service in this country... there service shall be revoked... cheaters and highly unscrupulous people...
