Melissa H | 08-02-2023

We have been trying to work with T-Mobile for over 4 months for them to return credits for service that we were mischarged for. Due to poor reception and even worse customer service we decided to switch providers. Since that time we were charged for 2 full months of service that we did not have. Turns out that the rep "forgot" to cancel the account completely, likely to retain the commission. It was verified that we did not have service and we were informed we would get a credit. Lies, lies, lies. Instead they send us a bill with a late fee and say that they cannot credit back money they took from our credit card since the "account was cancelled". They are THIEVES. STAY AWAY!

Despite the fact that I had to wait several weeks for completion of my home installation kit, I was truly impressed with the courtesy, etiquette, follow-through of customer service on the phone! Their CS quality is better than most! Genuine and timely service with technician and thorough installation process! Rates could not be better and the speed is absolutely ????%. Boycotting their competition with unending rate hikes! Thanks Frontier!! I recommend you to everyone!!
