MagicJack

MagicJack Review

Product didn”t work at all. Total Rip-Off. Spent 4 Hours on the Phone with 4 Different People including Supervisors and they couldn”t make it Ring for Incomming Calls. Got Return Authorization and sent back during the 30 Day Free Trial (careful, they start the clock ticking from the second you place the order, NOT when you receive and activate the product). They then refused to refund my $21.00 Fee to Port my Original Number I had for 20 years from my previous provider. As if that insult wasn”t enough, they held my Phone Number Hostage for a Ransom of an ADDITIONAL Fee of $30. in order to Port my Number OUT to a new provider that actually Worked. I sent a complaint to FCC as Magic Jack has a “Policy” that allows them to Extort Money from Consumers after they send them Defective Products. Chat Text Below… Please wait for a site operator to respond. You are now chatting with “Adam” Your Issue ID for this chat is LTK554082579354X Adam: Hello, how may I help you? Tom Holderbach: I ordered Magic Jack on the following order number TS21588556 and had my number ported from Brighthouse. The Magic Jack failed to work properly (would not ring for incoming calls) and I spent over 4 hours working with you call center reps and I did everything properly and no one including a supervisor could get it to work. I got a return authorization and sent the product back and switched to Vonage. I need a full refund for all charges to my Credit card and my number ported to Vonage for Free (apparently you want $30. to Port my number which is Illegal under FCC Federal Law). Failure to resolve this wil result in a formal dispute for the charges to my Credit Card Compant since your Product was defective. A Formal Complaint letter about your Fruadulen Consumer Practices to the FCC. And I will personally Discourage everyone I come accross in any internet forum or in person to NEVER use Magic Jack as it is a patent rip-off and doens”t work and they keep your money. Hopefulle we can resolve this today so I do not have to go through those legnths. Adam: I”m sorry for the delay. I”ll be right with you. Adam: As I can see here, you are already refunded on your device. Adam: Unfortunately, you need to pay $30 to port out your number. Tom Holderbach: That is Illegal. Adam: Unfortunately, it is our system that is asking for the charge Tom. Adam: You do need to pay $30 to port out your phone number. Tom Holderbach: You need to port my number if I request it in the Specified waiting period. That is FCC Rules. I don”t care that your company has a policy that lets you rip off consumers. Adam: I believe I have provided all the necessary information that you need. I will end this chat now. If you have any other concern, please don”t hesitate to chat us back. Thank you. Adam: Since we haven”t heard from you, we must release this chat. Please click here should you need further assistance: www.magicJack.com/techchat You are not currently in a chat session.

Thank you, magicJack Customer Service Marykate: The email confirmation above was sent to Email Address: [protected]@ATT.NET last 09/19/2012. Tom Holderbach: you want to charge me over 30 dollars Tom Holderbach: LOL Tom Holderbach: seriously Marykate: Yes, that is correct. Tom Holderbach: you lose a customer for faulty equipment and bad service Tom Holderbach: then have the nerve to charge them for a phone number that has been their number for over 20 years? Tom Holderbach: that is how you do business? Tom Holderbach: really? Marykate: I fully understand how you feel. Unfortunately, there”s nothing we can do for it as this kind of process is system generated. Tom Holderbach: I call BS Tom Holderbach: brighthouse cable compnay Tom Holderbach: company* Tom Holderbach: released the number with charge Tom Holderbach: you are losing money, so the easiest way to make money is to rip me off over 30 dollars for horrible service Tom Holderbach: with no charge* Tom Holderbach: you have to refund my money because, of your guarantee Tom Holderbach: what a joke Tom Holderbach: you get it back by charging me to get my personal number back Tom Holderbach: mean time, I am losing personal income? Tom Holderbach: this is how you do business? Marykate: Yes. Marykate: I respect and appreciate your sentiments because I would feel the same way if I was on your shoes. However, please understand that a company policy is a policy that we need to follow at all times. Tom Holderbach: I want to speak with a supervisor right now Tom Holderbach: and I want a number to call to speaqk to this person Tom Holderbach: speak* Marykate: As I have stated at the start of this chat, I am a supervisor. Tom Holderbach: I have been in customer service for over 30 years Tom Holderbach: I know policy and when a customer is right, they are right Tom Holderbach: so… Marykate: We”d love to help you by phone but we only have Tech chat support as of this time. Please do not worry as all chat sessions are saved for future reference. We are open 24/7 to serve you best. Tom Holderbach: I want a supervisor Tom Holderbach: not another marysomeone Marykate: As I have stated at the start of this chat, I am a supervisor. Marykate: My name is Marykate. Tom Holderbach: I am unsatisfied customer Tom Holderbach: and I am being ripped off by your company to get my personal number back Tom Holderbach: how do you plan on fixing that? Marykate: All you need to do is pay the $30 port fee and you”ll be all set. Tom Holderbach: NOT GONNA HAPPEN Marykate: Okay, Tom. Tom Holderbach: I was looking forward to using your service Marykate: I respect your decision. Tom Holderbach: you sent me faulty equipment from day one Tom Holderbach: none of it worked Tom Holderbach: i lost income Tom Holderbach: i sent everything back Tom Holderbach: now you want to actually charge me to get my personal number back Tom Holderbach: you have a good racket going here Tom Holderbach: I will make sure to spread to everyone i know, business and personal wise, just how your company works Marykate: You definitely have a good point however I know that this can be frustrating and I would have accommodated your request if it were possible. Tom Holderbach: It is possible Tom Holderbach: you just refuse to do so Tom Holderbach: not my problem Tom Holderbach: I will make it my goal in life to make sure that everyone I know and do business with that magicjack is a ripoff Tom Holderbach: copy paste, facebook, twitter and anything else I can find to post it all on Marykate: Okay, I respect and it is your right to do so as well. Marykate: Is there anything else I may help you with today? Tom Holderbach: Give me my phone number back Marykate: Your new carrier should request a customer service record for your account and we will send them your account information. You must provide your new carrier with your account password, which is the same password you use to access your magicJack. Tom Holderbach: and it will not cost me anything? Marykate: Please be informed that there is a $30 port out fee. Tom Holderbach: why 30 dollars? Tom Holderbach: no one else at any company charges this fee Tom Holderbach: so that means it is a fee only charged by your company Tom Holderbach: so, i am guessing the majority of your customers are unsatisfied so when they leave and want their money back, you make sure and get your money by holding their personal phone numbers as hostage until they pay you a fee to get it back Marykate: I believe I have provided all the necessary information that you need. I will end this chat now. If you have any other concern, please don”t hesitate to chat us back. Thank you. Since we haven”t heard from you, we must release this chat.
