“just poor service and helpfulness.”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by Eileenc442 (1 review written)

I have had two messages from tesco mobile over the last two months telling me my payment for two phones has not been taken by themselves, so I've paid it from my card because of threats by tesco to withold service, I called in to enquire about a phone upgrade only to be told because of poor payments (apparently you need three months good credit)I cannot upgrade until I can prove I'm fit to manage my payments, I feel I'm being tricked by Tesco, and to keep hoping they take their payments so I… Read Full Review

“Tesco mobile - just fantastic!!”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by AddisonAlvarado434 (1 review written)

I was a little apprehensive when I originally took out my mobile contract with Tesco mobile, after all, they sell groceries!! Had no need to be. From day one I have never had any complaint. The customer service/ sales team are the most friendly, efficient people I have ever dealt with and that also includes their on line chat advisors too. They are all just brilliant!! Well done to them, makes a change these days to have a company do what they advertise and staff that fulfill what they say they… Read Full Review

“Happy to leave an 87 year old man stranded”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by Hireahymer (2 reviews written)

My Dad whilst on holiday in Greece had a medical emergency - Tesco's has put a £5 buffer limit on his pay monthly account and so he was unable to use his phone. He rang tescos to try and get this sorted (from a borrowed phone) - the person from Preston call centre refused to let him past security as she asked the wrong security question and obviously he gave the wrong response. Rather than try and help him out in his desperate situation she told him she could not help. Great customer service… Read Full Review

“False Claim on Signal strength”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by Courtney54 (1 review written)

Beware the promised coverage. I switched from Vodaphone with whom I had poor coverage to Tesco because the coverage web calculator indicated I would get a much better signal. I didn't I actually got a worse signal. Regrettably I did not complain within the 14 day period so I am stuck with them for 2 years. Despite me pointing out the poor level of signal in my l area they are still claiming the same higher level of signal availability on the web page coverage calculator. Beware !!… Read Full Review

“Excellent service”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by 316Waddell (1 review written)

I got my phone in January 2013. Not being very clued up on mobiles (I'd had my previous one for 7 years) I read the reviews of the types of phonesand checked the tariffs. I am very happy with my little HTC and low usage monthly fee as I only really useit for the occasional text, phone call or to take a picture, not much else. I get a text when my payment is going to be taken out and have experienced no problems at all. All in all I am very happy with the service I get from Tesco mobile… Read Full Review

“Errors Every Step”

Written on: 24/05/2014 by BradyDonahue358 (1 review written)

I ordered a Galaxy S5 2 days ago online but was told online there had been a malfunction and to retry ordering. Went through order again and then found both orders were complete. Tried getting one cancelled via twitter, live chat and finally over phone. Eventually transpires if I don't sign one of the credit agreement emails it would cancel automatically. No credit emails arrived. Called today to request once again the emails to be sent. Finally the emails come through and the credit agreement… Read Full Review

“Really Excellent”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by Shopper1475 (1 review written)

Cannot praise Tesco mobile enough! Easy order process, fast delivery, good signal. The thing I like most is the capped bills, I really think this is responsible of them and I love it! Never any nasty bills after going on holiday! Well done Tesco, Keep it up!!… Read Full Review

“Abysmal ”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by jenpenrae (1 review written)

I attempted to order a phone on the 29th of April. I was not sent an email to electronically sign so the order was subsequently cancelled although I was not informed of this! £28.50 was debited almost immediately funnily enough and I was told the refund would be issued within 3 - 5 working days. I have now received an email saying that it will be paid on THE 2ND OF JUNE?! After questioning this, I am told the my direct debit was inactive so unable to issue refund. Well I have contacted… Read Full Review

“Appalling customer service”

Written on: 17/04/2014 by Adelaide382 (1 review written)

My son's contract phone would not charge so we sent it back to Tesco mobile for repair. It came back 3 weeks later with a letter stating that they could not replicate the problem. Basically, they hadn't touched it as it would still not charge. Sent it back again asking for a replacement which they agreed to do. Three weeks later it had still not arrived so rang them again. They said they did not have that phone in stock!!!!!! It's a Galaxy S3 and they are saying that they don't have one in… Read Full Review

“Poor Service - will never use again!”

Written on: 04/04/2014 by Davianl394 (1 review written)

Same as others, couldn't send, receive calls. Signal was poor, always cutting people off. When attempting to cancel my contract (within the agreed timescale) got told to call back at a certain date. So I did, then got told too late a bill has been generated?? So I emailed saying to cancel it on the day of the last day my bill expires, low and behold they "accidentally" cancelled it immediately, leaving me with no phone! Useless - I will never go with Tesco again, and can definitely not… Read Full Review

“Bad customer service, irresponsible - shocking. ”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by Prissy_mk (1 review written)

This happened few years ago (around 5 years, cannot remember exactly). I was with Tesco Mobile and my phone was stolen. I called to have my SIM card frozen/ cancelled, but the person who stole my phone can still made lots of international calls. I called Tesco customer service to cut my SIM and they confirmed they did it, over the phone. However phone calls were still being made and they kept charging me. Few days later I called again, they promised to cut off my SIM card. And of course, AGAIN… Read Full Review

“Network not available every evening”

Written on: 04/03/2014 by pfc (2 reviews written)

With increasing frequency I am unable to send/receive texts or make/receive calls from my home in a suburban area of west Southampton. This happens at unpredictable times during the day but does happen every evening. If I don't even have a 'phone service, why am I paying this company? This is very poor service and, based on my experience, I could not recommend Tesco mobile to anyone… Read Full Review

Service disappeared again this evening. Fine all day up at the hospital ... at home it is sporadic at best. Appalling service.

Lost service yet again last night. I am wondering if we Tesco mobile customers take second place to proper O2 customers if there is network contention.

“Customer service ? I don't think so.”

Written on: 02/03/2014 by 164Mitchell (1 review written)

When my phone wouldn't text, make or receive calls (pretty basic functions) I discovered that customer 'service' is anything but a service. I was shunted from pillar to post, department to department, promises of return phone calls were never followed through, no replacement phone was offered when mine was supposedly being repaired. Repairs took weeks on end and each time they came back saying that no fault was found. Has taken 4 months and threatening to complain to be offered a replacement… Read Full Review

“Utter rubbish”

Written on: 20/02/2014 by barrytoogood (2 reviews written)

I ordered a phone on pay-monthly from Tesco Mobile ten days ago. After hearing nothing for five days, I called their (0845) call centre. After 20 minutes, the various operators I was transferred to concluded that they didn't know why I hadn't received it and would call back later. they didn't, but i received a cancellation email because I hadn't signed a credit agreement that they never sent me. I restarted a second order (i'm a glutton for punishment). 24 hours in - no credit agreement… Read Full Review
