You do not need to be a member in order to send an email to the customer service department. The company recommends not sending account information in the email.
We sent an email requesting information on cancelation. When we received the automated response, the company explained that a representative will answer our concerns within two business days.
The customer service department was ready to help in less than 30 seconds. Typically, we have to endure a long list of options before selecting 0 in order to speak with a customer service representative. The only thing we had to do was select the appropriate language and we were then connected to the customer service department. We asked if the customer service department could provide information regarding cancellations and reactivation of service.
Not only did the customer service representative answer the question, they walked us through the process over on the website. This is what we expect when we contact customer service; a representative willing to go above and beyond to take care of the customer. Several forums state the customer support team is less than stellar. Do you feel this way? Share your experiences with us in the comment section below.
