Wirefly Complaint - Consider Yourself Warned!
DO NOT USE WIREFLY!!! I tried to sign up for the E*TRADE "Free" Blackberry deal through Wirefly. They made me email their customer service (outsourced to India) copies of my social security card, drivers license and other personal information. This process took over a week and totaled 5 hours of my time, as many of the materials I submitted were deemed "unacceptable", even through I am a verified ETRADE member and have been with my current wireless provider at the same address for over 10 years.
Finally after speaking with over six customer service agents throughout the week, one informed me that I could just answer three special "security questions" and my identity and shipping address would be confirmed. Wow, so after all the hoops I had to jump through, all the hours of scanning & faxing personal information and responding to emails, after the hundreds of minutes of my current wireless plan I wasted on hold to speak with a representative they told me I could have simply answered three questions????? REALLY? Total disregard for ETRADE members time! What kind of system is Wirefly operating? Very inefficient, downright rude and inconsiderate! OH, and it gets better... after all this BS, they sent me an email shortly after telling me that I was not eligible for a phone upgrade as per my current wireless plan. REALLY???!!!
Well, I just got off the phone with my wireless carrier and they honored the upgrade directly through the wireless provider and in literally five minutes I had accomplished what took me a week of harassment from Wirefly just to be rejected! Finally my new Blackberry is ordered an on it's way (thank god not through Wirefly), goes to show the importance of working with a qualified company. Shame on E*TRADE for contracting such an inferior company to represent their Mobile Pro division. After this debacle I am questioning the competence of the suits over at ETRADE - maybe it's time to transfer my accounts to Schwab. Consider yourself warned!
