Wirefly Complaint - Wirefly worked really hard to correct an issue
Resolution Update on 03/19/2010:
Someone from customer service contacted me and they are sending me replacement phones next day air plus 2 free accessories. The woman I talked to apologized and helped to resolve my issues so I give them credit for that!
I had what started out as a really bad experience with this company recently. I had ordered 2 new phones and was going to switch providers and keep my old cell phone numbers (this is called "porting"). My phone number was ported before I actually received my new phones though, leaving me without service for several days. I knew I was going to be out of town and I wasn't concerned with getting my phones quickly and had planned to activate them when I got back in town so I didn't choose a fast shipping option. But your old service gets cut off when they port your number and even though my new provider had me all set up, I had not received my new phones yet. Therefore I could not use my old phone and had no phone service. I called customer service to try and resolve this situation and had a bad experience with that as well. The guy kept telling me that I chose the wrong shipping option when the problem was really that my number was ported before I received the phone and activated it.
I'm not sure if this was a fluke or what. However, I was contacted within 24 hours of placing a complaint by a manager and the COO and they apologized and next day aired me my phones and 2 free accessories. I still had to go without a phone for 5 days BUT they really stepped up to correct the situation! And I felt like they were really concerned about resolving everything so that I was happy. So, at the end of the day, even though I didn't have the best experience in the beginning, they did work hard to resolve it and make it right!
