Alltel Complaint - Very Poor Service at Alltel
We have been into our contract with Alltel for 18 months. Most of that time we have been unable to receive service at our home, and there are two cell towers within 5 miles of our home. We live in South Carolina but had better service while on vacation two months ago in the states of Washington, Oregon and California.
We purchased a $200 phone at start-up, local store attempted to fix the problem by replacing the phone three times. We ended up with a free phone that did not work any better. And when asked about a refund, we were told so sad, so sorry, you lose. Many numerous attempts to correct the problem have been made. I have even requested customer service reps give me a direct line or they call the phones so they can experience the HORRIBLE reception. My request is declined! I've asked to be allowed out of the contract for one phone at a pro-rated amount. This phone is for my disable husband who stays home alone all day with the intention he could use the phone while in the yard in an emergency. Wonder if he had a real emergency and needed to use the phone would Alltel be liable?
I have received very poor customer service along with paying 18 months on marginal cell service.
I would not recommend Alltel to anyone for any reason.
