Call wait times

I have been on hold to speak to someone for over an hour. This is ridiculous. Why is your customer service so bad?

Thank you for your help, but I tried this and it directs me to a page which does have the chat feature, but nowhere to click, ie botyom right corner. I did, however complete and submitted a customer support online form. Thanks again for the help.

I normally prefer the chat option but i have been experimenting long wait time as well before I get connected. the last time there was more than 30 people ahead of me and gave up after 3 hours.

Just checked online chat and was que 8. Generally more and more people are using the live chat option to bypass long hold times calling in.

Wait times depend on the person they're assisting, not all calls/chats can be handled in a few minutes. Thus causing a snowball effect for wait times.

Ideally first thing in the mornings seem to be the best. Although that's not the real solution to the issues customers seem to face.

Beg to differ....there are 29 people ahead of me right now and been waiting almost half hour now...only went down by one.  Even at 8 it is still an hour wait easy.  

Too late already posted complaint to CRTC and also asked why no unlimited plans in Canada - Canada has worst mobile service and rates in the Western world..... Sorry my post times vary as well!  Tried your link it didn't work.......

@Dimo-X's link had a space on the end. Easy enough to fix in your address bar, but here it is again.

 

Just a note: the wireless code does not apply to the issues you wish addressed, so you may not receive an answer from the CRTC at all on those issues.

I agree- I was left on hold for 3 HOURS yesterday before I decided to just give up. I am not impressed with the lack of customer service and the fact that obviously no one cared that I was waiting that long.

On for 1 hr after being told wait time is 45 mins - will give up and send a note to CRTC asking why wait times are false and why we can get better coverage and unlimited plans like in the US?  

Wait times????  I only wish.  They say on the hold message that they know our time is valuable and someone will pickup as soon as they are able but what gets me is ...if they KNOW our time is valuable...why is there no hint of a wait time???  I want to know how much time they are going to waste of my "valuable time".  Also why is there no "call back" feature?  I just want to upgrade my mobile phone but have a couple questions but i am getting ready to dump telus and go elsewhere just because i can't talk to someone.  I am in chat AND on hold.   Almost done here.

It's best to call when you have at least 2 extra hours to wait, or as another suggested, very early in the morning. Maybe only a hour wait then.

Why is there no call back...even Telus home services has this...Telus mobility must be very poorly managed!!!
