Comcast in Houston, Texas - Sercive tech disconnected MY line while disconnecting my neighbors line!!!

Lied to by phone reps, told service was being done in my area that day/night, should be up by midnight. Next day, still no service internet or cable tv. A second and third call to Comcast left a message for 3 different supervisors to return my calls. No contact from a supv. A service tech disconnected MY line while he was disconnecting my neighbors line. The service tech was out on 10/23/08. Luckily my neighbors kept the work order from the service tech so Comast shold know what kind of *** they employ! I need to file a formal complaint with Comcast but am unable to get a hold of a supv to do this! They are NEVER available or do NOT return my phone calls!

COMCAST STRIKES AGAIN

Ok, so I haven't been able to access my email account with Comcast for the last few days. Today, I found out that my incoming email has been getting bouncec back to the senders. (mind you I've had this account for about 20 years (through many name changes). I called Comcast tonight and after sitting on hold for quite a while the agent answered. I explained that I could not receive emails through Thunderbird and also could not log in through Comcast. net. After running some "tests" he came back on and said the problem must be with Thunderbird and he was going to transfer me to them. I told him, the problem wasn't Thunderbird as I couldn't log on even through the Comcast site. He said, let me run some more tests at which point we were either disconnected or he hung up, take your pick. I called back and got a very nice lady who told me my account had been suspended. No notes in the record as to why and she could find no reason. She said there were not even any notes made by the previous man I had been talking to. Makes me believe that he really did hang up. The lady re activated my account and I am up and running. I did ask to speak to a supervisor as the explanation as to why it had been suspended in the first place wasn't sufficient. She said he was on another call and wasn't available, she agreed to put me on *** to speak to him (only one supervisor on duty by the way). Needless to say that after waiting a few minutes, I was disconnected and never did get to speak to a supervisor. The plus side, my email is working again. The minus side, I don't know why it was shut off and all incoming emails for the last 4 days have been bounced back to the senders. They probably think I'm dead. LOL

Comcast in Natick, Massachusetts - No e-mail for 4 days and counting.

I have been without e-mail for 4 days so far. Comcast says the issue has been passed up to the next level of technical support. They explain that e-mail is a free service that is included with internet service. They explain this with the typical "we do not care whether you like it or not" tone that Comcast is famous for. Prior to Comcast I had Adelphia as my ISP. They took care of every problem while I was on the phone. Comcast bought their business. They increasd my monthly fee by 30% and it has been all down hill since. I dislike Comcast more than any other company I do business with. When will there be some viable competition in southern New Hampshire?

Comcast in Belvidere, Illinois - Lying customer service reps!!!

I was told last week one price to pay so no disconnection by 2 different csr and she told me she was making notes on the computer that I would come in on thursday to pay. I went to pay yesterday and it had doubled! I called and asked about this and the csr told me there were notes but not I what I was told they were. I asked her if I could talk to a supervisor, she told me she would have one call me back, they NEVER did so now my cable will be disconnected on saturday!!! If they had told me the correct amount last week or said it might go up I would have saved that $. I am a single mother of 2 little girls and sometimes I do get behind, but I always pay whats due!!! I had no problem when it was INSIGHT!!! Until COMCAST TOOK OVER!!!!

Comcast Unresponsive Customer Service

I have attempted to settle my final bill after terminating service with Comcast for over three months but have been unable to get resolution with well over a half dozen unhelpful customer service representatives. I am owed a partial refund of service for the MLB Extra Innings package, which I paid for completely in advance but did not receive the full year's service. At least two representatives agreed with me, and one told me I would be mailed a check for the net credit on my account, but I never received the check. Instead, I received a bill with no mention of the credit to which I am entitled. I have wasted many hours over many phone calls speaking with reps and supervisors. Some say they will look into whether or not I am owed a refund and promised to call back when they completed their research. I have been promised three such calls back, but I have not received a single one. I asked for a direct number for one rep and left a message following up, but I never heard back from her. Two representatives have said I deserve a refund but apparently did nothing to ensure I get it. One or two said I should not get a refund (they did not specify a reason) but would have someone follow up, which of course never happened. I can only assume they figure I will eventually give up and pay their incorrect billing figure, when in fact Comcast owes me money. The amount of money I am owed is not large, but I simply cannot stomach accepting this level of atrocious service and paying some incorrect bill. I hope someone at Comcast will read this note and respond to me. My account is 8798 30 001 0361973.

Comcast - help! need my phone service!

We have had chronic reception/equipment problems w/Comcast for years. When hubby's job ended he signed us up for triple play to save $. Now we're losing phone service and net/tv regularly, sometimes for days at a time! They "fix" it; but lasts for a couple weeks. I'm co-manager of emergency fund to save Howard County, MD residents from being evicted, having utilities turned off, or going without food/shelter. Plus I have ailing, elderly parents and a retarded sister who must be able to reacy us. I need my phone & internet! Can't afford Verizon. What can I do? Linda in Ellicott City

Comcast can't get the installation right

In August I was sold the Comcast double play for HD TV and internet service. The technician showed up and only hooked up the basic cable stating I needed an HDMI cable for HDTV. I purchased the cable (very expensive) and when they finally showed up to hook up my box, I was told HD isn't even available here. They hooked up the DVR and we finally had a picture on our 50"plasma. However, when they installed the DVR something happened to the other 3 tv's which do not have the digital box. Now Comcast insists I pay them to fix what was not broken prior to their installation of the DVR or I could always subscribe to their monthly maintenance plan. This is a joke - good luck getting anyone to show up (as they have missed 2 of their scheduled appointments) and when someone finally shows up they are incompetent.

Comcast billed me $500.00 for moving.

If you have Comcast you know you pay one month ahead of time. I moved and kept my same package for $100.00 a month. My first bill in my new place was nearly $500.00 with all the transfer fees and additional fees for moving. This is a rip off. I was not behind in my payments. All I did was move. I was told by a Comcast representative, I should have terminated my service and started over. This is not only a waste of my time, but also a waste of their company's time. These are some of the most incompetent people to try and get things done. Prior to this, it took seven months to get their billing errors corrected, but billing me $500.00 for moving according to Comcastis not a billing error. Comcast is right. It is not a billing error. It is a rip-off.

Comcast/Microsoft Outlook 2003 problems

007, you must work for Comcast. I am practically a computer illiterate and I know you either (a) don't know what You're talking about; or (b) don't understand what We're talking about! I never had problems with Microsoft Outlook 2003 when I was with Bellsouth.net or MSN. I've had problems similar to those reported here since Sept. 26. Each day a different problem, or a new problem one day, and then back to the old problem the next day. I've received different answers about what the problem/solution is, from the 7-10 Customer Service Rep Techs I've spoken to over that time span. By talking to so many I've learned (a) eventually you'll get a more knowledgeable and patient Rep; and (b) that Comcast is having big problems with its "upgrade" to Smart Zone and they're tap-dancing like crazy to fix them. Reps' answers range from "It's Microsoft's problem" "You need to upgrade to Outlook 2007" to "...technical issues with Smart Zone"; Or " just send your emails through the Comcast internet site, that works, so we’ve resolved your problem" to "hmmm...Let's try this." Guess they don't want to have to be compatible with older software like Outlook 2003. (More than one rep didn't disagree with me when I said that.) My first problem was that messages just stayed in the Outbox. All day/night long. I (think) I fixed that by doing a System Restore to two weeks earlier, deleting my E-mail Account and setting it up all over again. The weird thing is that when I send test email messages from the View and Change E-mail Accounts tabs, one day it works, the next not. And, the automatic test responses vary from day to day. One day my password was incorrect (Comcast accidentally changed it, Rep said "we apologize" and helped me fix that). Most times the message when testing email is" "unable to connect with the server...please verify that the port and SSL information is correct." No matter what port and SSL the Reps suggest, none seems to work. Today, the Rep suggested I just send a test email directly from Outlook. That actually worked. (I'm sticking with Outlook because I freelance for several companies from different locations, so I wanted to toggle between all my email accounts. I was trying to stay with Comcast because I got the $99 bundle - if I drop the internet the price of phone/cable go up, but my patience is running out as of tomorrow.) Tomorrow, if anything else is not working, I'm finding an ISP who doesn't mind working with Outlook 2003. I hope this post helps someone else
