“Don't ever buy a tesco phone”

Written on: 23/11/2015 by Bremner74 (1 review written)

I bought one on the Tesco network as pay as you go. The money just drained away even when I was not using it. I decided to get it unlocked. I went into a Tesco store and had to ring their customer service. I paid £10 and was told I would receive an email in 5 - 7 working days with a code to unlock it. 6 weeks later I gave up waiting and bought a new phone. I rang Tesco to get my £10 refunded and they only offered a Tesco voucher and would not refund my £10. Useless!… Read Full Review

“Awful”

Written on: 08/11/2015 by Rileyc406 (1 review written)

They didn't have my phone in stock so I was required to order it however when I got home I got an email saying Tesco had cancelled my order? I tried to reorder my phone but the website is poor and can't complete my request. Also on my previous phone I have signed up to phone insurance yet Tesco refused to help despite the fact I have been religiously paying £12 per month. Complete and utter waste of money, awful customer service… Read Full Review

“Bitter Taste”

Written on: 30/09/2015 by chrisjuk89 (1 review written)

The problems I have had with this network have been compounded by Tesco's rude and patronising customer service team. The network is unable to offer a stable data connection even when coverage is excellent. As a result Tesco is utterly useless for a modern smartphone. Interupted downloads and buffering plus a plethora of android errors await the unlucky customer. Tesco's complete inabillity to communicate properly with their customers has led to them blocking my sim card without cause or… Read Full Review

“Dont Bother Just go to a proper phone provider”

Written on: 18/07/2015 by MacPherson183 (1 review written)

Wish i had never switched to Tesco mobile. Staff customer service is awful. I wanted to switch from my existing network taking my number. Tesco mucked that up and did not do it until i chased them up. Store staff say ' we are here to asell phones we dont do customer service'!! Tesco mobile helpline blame staf in store for non switch, store blame Head office. Also the new phone they gave me was not set up correctly by them and does not work-it wont send picture messages atached tio a text- took… Read Full Review

“Data Stung!”

Written on: 27/06/2015 by jasondunlop (26 reviews written)

Customer service is good, signal is good, prices are good. The big fat No No is the fact your data is eaten up in days, even when data is switched off Tesco still manage to allow you to go into your safety buffer! Ive seen this same problem highlighted in a lot of reviews of Tesco mobile, so its not just me imagining things! Ive since changed networks and i have no more data usage problems! Id go as far as to say Tesco are ripping customers off with the data charges!… Read Full Review

“Absolutely awful”

Written on: 26/06/2015 by 272Newton (1 review written)

I wouldn’t normally bother to write a review on services such as these and big companies but when it comes to Tesco mobile I felt I had to. I have been with various providers over the years and all have their niggles but if you are reading this and thinking about going with Tesco Mobile DON’T! I have had my phone for less than 2 months and in that time I must have rung Tesco around 40 times and visited their shop on numerous occasions with various problems, such as not being able to make… Read Full Review

“BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE”

Written on: 17/05/2015 by Haydengc194 (1 review written)

Experienced the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Ordered an new nano sim for my sons new iphone 5C that he was getting for his birthday. I was sent a Micro sim (tesco error). When I contacted them I was told it would take further 3 days to send another sim. This would be too late for my sons birthday. I was then advised to buy one from a Tesco store. My nearest store is 15 miles away. I drive to the store to be advised they do not stock Nano sims and these need to be… Read Full Review

“Shocking Service from the Big Gorilla ”

Written on: 12/05/2015 by Dyas (1 review written)

Purchased an iphone 5- wrong sized SIM issued on 2 occasions so was 10 days before the phone was usable - Tesco charged me for this period. Phone was faulty and only solution was to send phone back which would take another 7-10 days. So had phone for a 6 weeks and was unable to use for 3 weeks. Customer services passed me from pillar to post… Read Full Review

“brilliant network”

Written on: 16/03/2015 by stevo1983 (1 review written)

I've been with Tesco mobile now for about 7 months. I've got a sim only and a phone contract. Ye the delivery time is longer than most networks, 3-5 days. Both of mine came in 2 days. Great network coverage, great customer service anytime I've had to speak to them ( only spoke to them to add stuff to my contract). There as good as any other network and they run on 02's network. Couldn't recommend them enough. Sweet mobile provider in my book. Was with ee before and these are well better for 4g… Read Full Review

“Bad customer experience and unexplained call charges...”

Written on: 27/02/2015 by EleanorSinclair (1 review written)

Just had a shocking experience with tesco mobile customer chat line. Am on pay as you go since beginning of this year and can't see my usages but have been seeing these big charges which does not make sense. The chat line lady mentioned that I have been making these calls to a 078 number. When she typed it out for me I can't recognise it only to find that it is tesco mobile voicemail. Presumably I have been charged for all missed calls that went to voice mail. I was not even aware I had… Read Full Review
