I wanted to update my credit card info online. The website did not accept the update and I chatted twice online, also called CS 3 times. They advised me to install random browsers until I find one that would accept the update. One of the reps asked me to remember my address from 7 years ago and laughed at me refusing to update the account which they charge to earn money. I canceled the account after 8 years. This business became a sorry excuse of what they used to be in the past. They... (read more)

..the sad thing is that one by one once customers begin to walk away from your business is a chain reaction very difficult to stop, people talk, they share opinions, they complain, etc,..and Uniontelecard is now regarded as one of those companies that got big and forgot about their clients. Customer service is terrible, you call for help and they have no clue what's going on and/or how to help you, it's either that or they put you on speaker-phone (you can actually hear the laughs in the...

Terrific rates all over the world-- I've used this to call from the USA to South Korea, Japan, Hawaii, Guam, Singapore, England and all over the US. Very low per-minute rate with no inactivity charge, no per-call charge, etc. All your money goes to minutes, not fees.
The website is easy to navigate and it is simple to add money (time) to your card online. You can even configure it for your home phone so you don't have to enter all the numbers each time you call (I have not tried this but... (read more)

They offer to clients $10 for each friend that client refer and after friend first purchase. The advertiser is "Get $10 with your friend first purchase". My friend create her account and before make the first purchase I entered her info in my referals. The system said that she can not be a referal because her account already exist. We chat with a representative before she make the purchase and also she called there and they did not credit the $10 in my account. They said that we create the... (read more)

Be very wary of the "Terms & Conditions" on your card. A product is being sold without fully disclosing all information which I did a live chat with a supervisor who decided sarcasm was better than addressing the issue. I purchased Europe Blue card which states: EXPIRATION:"Your card's balance will NOT expire unless the card is not used for any consecutive 12 month period. If your balance expires, please contact customer service". However, the card actually expires 6 months if not recharged.... (read more)

UnionTeleCard may have good prices, but the sound quality highly variable; the transmission delay drives me nuts (but this might be problem with all phone cards?). I live in rural area and connecting to other rural areas difficult (computer lines apparently have to travel to Austrialia to get 3 counties over) compared to connecting to higher population areas.
Customer service has been fairly patient with my frequent complaints.
Connecting to cell phones can be hit or miss. Connecting to... (read more)

Union TeleCard offers good options and competitive rates. Their policy indicates an unused pin expires in one year; however, for the casual user, they don't offer a reminder service and once the pin is archived they don't offer a way to reactivate it nor to refund any unused balance. A Customer Service supervisor could not solve this problem and indicated that he would submit a request to the developers to see if a reminder notification (which should be easy to do) but whether they'll do it...

Stay away at all cost. These guy are ridiculous. Offer a promotion for signing up and purchasing a card that can not be redeemed. Smells like a scam. After 12 emails back and forth with customer service I gave up and came here to tell the world to find another company to patronize. (read more)

I have been using their service for a number of years but recently I am continually frustrated with their service levels. I used their so called PIN-less Dialing so that I can always just call the access mumber without being prompted for PIN password and such - but for some time now they bombard one with unsolicited Ads that play along before you are connected to input your desired number, there is no method of opting out!
For crying outloud - I am paying for a service by buying their card... (read more)

I liked UnionTelecard Customer Service
I never have had such a pleasant experience as being treated like a human being, and for the first time ever with this type of services, I felt that my money worth it!!!
if you want to talk to home, or here within the city, there is no much options available that make you feel respected, as a customer!!!

I have had a pleasant experience with Union Telecard. Almost always the rate offered is the correct rate. A couple of times i experienced that the rate was not right, but i went to the chat a person updated the page and credited my mega clean card for the cents I lost.
Sometimes it is difficult to get in touch with them by the phone but it seems not a lot of people use the chat as far I am aware? (read more)

I've been using UnionTelecard for 3 years and have been happy the whole time. No problems to speak of and they offer a good price. I think a couple times I have not been able to connect but it seems that these have been rare. Sometimes the voice quality is not that good. Not a big deal, I don't think. (read more)

We've been using the UnionTelecard site for at least a year, maybe two, to buy cards to call El Salvador. My experience has been generally good. It's been convenient not having to go find a store and compare legal info and rates from outdated paper posters. I've had virtually no problems since maybe the second card, and we're on probably our 20th, minimum.
You do have to do a lot of your own "homework." Never, never just take the recommendation of their automated system. You'll get cards... (read more)

I got the Superclean UnionTelecard. It worked the first times, and then it could not make a connection (dead, silent). In the meantime, time was charged. I called and reported the problem, and I was told that the credit would be credited to my account. It wasn't. I decided to try something else... The Megaclean... another nightmare. I made three calls. The sound was always bad, and I kept hoping it would get better. It didn't. After the third time, I reported it to customer support... (read more)

Avoid the Purple and Arcade cards from UnionTelecard like the plague. They rarely connect, if it does it takes 15-20 seconds with poor line quality and the system will charge you if you wait for a connection more than 10 seconds. The automated system and staff will deny you credit for your non-connected attempt to make a phone call. (read more)

This is a great and affordable choice if you are one of those who talk a lot to people in India. Half the price to landlines when compared some equivalent services like Reliance Infocom.
But when you need talk home on peak hours then have a back-up option 'cos this card might not connect and even if it does, the voice quality will be poor (during peak hours). (read more)

Phone Cards, UnionTelecard: In my experince you will be charged extra than specified on the site. E.g. 8 - 10 cents will be charged even if your call is not connected but if you are online for more than 20 seconds. I feel this is not mentioned anywhere.
Also line quality is very bad.
I dialed 20 times but could not get the call through.
Customer service is very poor. Do NOT buy cards here !! (read more)
