XM Satellite Radio Substandard Account Maintenance - Customer Service Washington DC
*Author of original report: email address for "corporate hate mail" to email@example.com
On the day of the expiration XM turned off my subscription.
Now here is the locus of my complaint:
1 There appears to be no link between automated billing services and radio program maintenance.
2. calling their 800-xm radio number is an automated only response system not geared to handling service complaints.. it is only an order process-response system.
3 The contact via email option is not effective as it "sits" on a customer request... no response coming back in a short time period.
The only way to get a live response is this number 800 347-0600 then you egt put on hold for awile as the rep has to find out all teh details about account and such before they can render a decison on complaint.
They demonstrate no concern for effective account maintenance other than a daily marketing call on month prior to expiration date.
This company's business model clearly is "if we build it they will come" .. guess what? Not so.. to be a subscriber and have to crawl through "barbwire" to get what you pay for is a nuisance I do not need. And given the fact that it already is an over-priced luxury item, I won't be renewing at the end of the renewal period.. which all subscribers should know... that we will continue you to bill you against a credit card on file. It requires the subscriber to make a formal request to cancel... or they will just keep billing and billing.
As a technology, satellite radio is a good thing, but XM and their whoring partner Sirius have ruined it for many... they ruined it for me.
