Chat & Vision is OK when everything goes right but when there is a problem beware as you can see from previous reviews.
We ordered a Skype phone and it was eventually delivered within an agreeable amount of time. not rapid, but fair enough. As we live way out in the countryside here in Spain we have problems with DHL as well as other companies delivering to us.To alleviate this problem we had an arrangement with a Spanish friend in a local village to accept deliveries for us. We ordered this phone with the belief as stated in their website "Worry free ordering all dues taxes and delivery charges included". 2 weeks after delivery our friend receives a demand from the Spanish Customs Authority that she appear before her local Tax authority due to unpaid duty on the goods that she received for us.Which involved a round trip of around 45kms. She was informed that the declared value by Chat & Vision was $12 and they insisted that they see the invoice from Chat and Vision which of course read €75. After another round trip of 45kms with the invoice she was then told she would be informed as to how much duty was to pay and also that there could possibly be a fine.
We were of course keeping Chat & Vision informed of all of this ongoing problem. Assurance from customer support that we would not suffer as a result of this as they would recompense when it was finally sorted. Well the Duty turned out to be € 15 and no fine, but as we were so embarrassed about the time and cost our friend had incurred we recompensed her for her time and fuel costs € 50 only to be told afterwards that she no longer wished to receive any more goods for us. So a €75 phone from Chat and vision has cost us €140 which we could have purchased from Amazon for €79 and know that we would have had much better service as we are still waiting for any recompense from Chat and Vision that was in May we are now in September and still waiting, for something that is obviously not going to happen.
IF YOU WANT A SKYPE PHONE GO TO AMAZON FOR YOUR OWN PIECE OF MIND
