Phone support is the worst. On hold for hours and hours. Going back to Telus in New Year.

This is the worst phone support I have ever experienced.  Unacceptable.

Two days in a row on hold for hours and hours.  Ask for a call back...they say within an hour...great.  Finally get a call back with the automated message that I am number 1 in the queue.  Guess what?  Now I am on hold again for hours and hours...this is pretty much it.  I'm done.

I am looking to go back to Telus where they actually function as a support line and will talk to you within the time stated.  I don't have time to sit here and wait all day because a company can't/won't hire enough staff to man the phones.  I wouldn't be upset if it was a one off time, but its literally everytime I have called in the few months...so this is obviously the norm here.

All I wanted to do was tell a rep to put a note on my account that I will be paying my bill on Friday instead of Wednesday.

Trying to cancel, just in the most painful of loops. Call in, told to use the callback, get the callback, wait 1 hour for a person, tell them I want to cancel...and ... they try and send me to another queue, ask them what is the amount of time I should expect to wait.. they aren't able to give that information, but it will be very long, ask for the supervisor, that queue is longer, and they still will send me to the cancel queue , after I share how horrible this is...

Really?

I’m pretty sure they make it next to impossible to cancel so you pay another month ... how am I next in queue for over an hour? Then when I “stay on the line for disconnects”, I’m told I have to wait in another line for disconnects??! Finally wait it out and they just drop the call. I don’t have time for this, and there’s no way I’m paying another bill
