Disappointment - voice charges. BE WARNED!

Disappointment - voice charges. BE WARNED!

I just would like to warn all Comcast users, both current and those who are thinking of joining, especially those who have relatives abroad. My last bill was a terrible disappointment. It turned out that the Comcast representative who assisted me when I signed up for their services, LIED to me, either intentionally or just because of total ignorance.

 

This person assured me that with 300 Careless minutes I am free to call ANY number in my country, including cell phones. However, when I received my bill,  I found an extra $30 charge in it, studied the bill and found out the unpleasant truth.  The calls to mobile phones ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THESE minutes - landlines ONLY!

 

Now I will have to start looking out to change my long distance provider. And my trust to Comcast employees has suffered a terrible blow.

You may want to write to we_can_help@cable.comcast.com and include your full name, service address, phone number, account number and full details of the problems.  A case manager from the executive office should contact you within three business days.

It does state here land lines only.  The rep was misinformed.

The OP was talking about calls to another country.

There is one other "gotcha" with Voice Unlimited: it isn't unlimited. See http://forums.comcast.com/t5/Customer-Service/Phone-being-disconnected-for-exceeding-5000-long-minut...
