Wasted over 3 DAYS with customer service agent Chrystal. she put me on hold to figure out why my MJ wasn't working and kept asking the same questions over, just parrot-like responses I believe they reading them from a Script. I was on "HOLD ON" and I wait and wait and wait she came back to see if I had hanged up, the way she was asking "are you still there" So I called back. I waited again for 1 hour, and finally, I get Chrystal again, who starts from square one even though I told her I had just spoken to her an hour ago. I wanted to talk to a supervisor, and she put me on hold. again beyond frustrated, I called, and Chrystal comes again, with the same parrot-like sentences. She ID me for the 5th time and then put me to turn off my computer, she messed up my computer magic jack, but this time she kept asking for my correct billing address. #, Street, City, Province, Country & postal code. and she said ups your zip code last number is wrong, sorry I can not help you, from 2 I changed to 5, and she said oh now we are correct, there was always something wrong, then oh we need to upgrade your system, then, I was so mad I asked to talk to her supervisor after the 5th time, she puts somebody there saying oh you need a new magic jack, since you are a good client we will tell you a secret, we sell it here and will take 10 days for you to receive it, but go to Wal-Mart and you can buy it right away. GEZZZZ THESE PEOPLE ARE SCAMMERS, THEY ARE IN PHILLIPINES, THIS IS HOW THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY SCAMMING AMERICANS THAT BELIEVE IN THIS PRODUCT. IT WAS GOOD AT THE BEGINNING BUT NOW WHEN THE INVENTORS SOLD THIS PRODUCT EVERYTHING WENT TO POTS, THEY SELL YOU THE 5 YEARS BUT AFTER TWO THEY ARE A DISASTER. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCE IT IS A SCAM NOW.

Wasted over 2 1/2 hours tonight with customer service agent LOURDES. Put me on hold to figure out why my MJ wasn't working, I had renewed it last week, kept asking the same questions over and was not reading my responses, just canned responses. She says: "HOLD ON" and I wait and wait and wait ------ then got disconnected due to inactivity. So I called back. Waited again for 45 minutes, was #11 in the cue this time, and finally I get LOURDES again, who starts from square one even thought I told her I had just spoken to her an hour ago. She kept sending me the same canned responses and it was obvious she was not reading my replies because what she was telling me was not showing on my screen. So she kept sending the same canned responses over and over and over again. I was beyond frustrated at this point. I gave her the correct billing address and alternate phone number, same that I gave in the first conversation and they were fine then, but this time she kept sending the canned response asking for my correct billing address. It was complete: #, Street, City, Province, Country & postal code. There is nothing else. I was logged into my account and copied and pasted it to show her. No response. Finally she says "I can't help you." and disconnects.
