Re:error after error after error

Hi Jacksmummy,
Wow - I don't think you could have had any more problems with our service if you had tried to.  I'm really sorry that you've had such a bad start and I sincerely hope that things get better for you sharpish.
Do you have any time for me to give you a ring so that I can fix as much of this that I can and hopefully give you an impression that we do actually care about providing a decent customer service?

Re:error after error after error

hi, dont have time to talk but if  you can help via this then that would be good.... main issues really are the bank charges they owe me. the calls they owe me and the apparent uncharged amounts that they want me to pay?? im sorry but i wont be paying any of these...... Sad

Re: error after error after error

Is there a time when I can call?  It's generally easier that way Smiley
Ignore the email you got last night about the call charges.  It won't have been correct.

Re: error after error after error

There's a small amount due (which we didn't charge you for in last months calls) as per the ticket reply I've just left you.
As before, I'm more than happy to have a chat about all the problems you've had in the past.

Re: error after error after error

You really should take that call from James - you'll sort out more in a short conversation with him than you would in a lot "ping-pong" on the ticket. He's a very nice chap!

Re: error after error after error

Glad to see I'm not the only one. I also had an email saying that I owed them money for uncharged calls because of a TECHNICAL ERROR and then I was sent another email telling me to ignore the previous one that it was a HUMAN ERROR. The problem with my bill is that the dates on the invoice they produced were wrong. Also, the "View Bill" dates on the phone side of things don't match the dates on the invoice Plusnet produce.  Also, the recent calls list details all calls instead of just calls made since the date of the last bill. Plusnet say that this sometimes happens when they have to turn off their scripts and collect call data manually. They say that it should correct itself in a COUPLE OF MONTHS. I am unemployed at the moment and need to keep tight control of my budget so I can't afford for Plusnet to spring any surprise call charges on me because of their mistakes. I like to know what I am paying for and right now I don't know. Even though I have complained, the dates remain the same and nothing has been done about it. I'm waiting on another email telling me how much I will have to pay next month for outstanding call charges. I have only been with Plusnet since August and until now had no problems with them. Whilst I have no problem with the broadband or telephone service I receive, I think that their billing is absolutely APPALLING. I have been so angry with them the past few days and I told them I had no choice but to go back to BT but that means more outlay. How I wish that James Bailey would phone me and tell me what they intend to do about the situation because if they could just put things right for me before the next bill, I would stay with Plusnet rather than have to move again.

Sorry jacksmummy but I seem to have re-posted your topic.   I just joined the forum today so I don't know what I'm doing yet.   I replied already but it has gone to your email I think.   Anyway, I think I've got the hang of it now.   Once again, I', so very sorry!

@amasike,
Hi, I'm sorry to hear about the problems.

We've raised a problem on this to our development team, it's with them for investigation at the moment. I'll chase it up on Monday and get you an update on where we are.

I'll check what's happening about this too, sorry for the hassle.
Having checked your account it looks like the billing amounts stated are correct, we took a payment for call charges this month but I'll double check all this when I get into the office tomorrow and give you a ring to let you know, if that's alright?

@jacksmummy,
I've had a look over your account and it looks like the billing is correct there, I'm not sure what's happening with the notifications though. I'll likewise check those out and get back to you tomorrow, ideally with a call if you're free at any time? If you could drop me a PM with the email text as well that would help me out a lot, thanks very much and sorry for the hassle.
