loss of load
We have a wifi unit which has a smart giga prepaid load. The load under Unli Fam 1099 expired sometime yesterday. I renewed our subscription this morning around 7:30am today also under Unli Fam 1099.

Our smart giga no is [protected].

Desired outcome: Return our load subscription.
I purchased a rocket sim over a year ago for the unlimited data while away from the house where we have pldt. The speed has been terrible most of the time .05mbs I have full signal but makes no difference. I have asked smart to resolve this problem and have created over 20 complaint tickets. They told me it was a congestion problem in my area which if thi...Read full review of Smart Communications
Smart signature plan
I applied Dec 24, 2022 and Dec 30 2022 called me from smart told that it was approved and proceed to payment, then I paid it to that day. Then a week later there is still no update regarding the delivery of my device so I followed it up on customer service they that they will make a follow-up on online team. Then a week after again still no update from them so I make a follow-up again they just said is still the same. So frustrating smart.
Desired outcome: expedite my device.
Very slow service
I am on queue for like an hour or two here in Greenhills branch. When I check the customer service representatives, only two were available. One was entertaining another customer who was supposedly next to me but I assume a senior citizen so fine but the other customer representative wasn’t even entertaining another customer but doing paper works.
Desired outcome: Customer Representatives should entertain first the “customers”. We’ve been wasting so much time

Wrong account cash transaction
Ma'am / Sir,
I would like to ask for your assistance in regard to the wrong cash transaction made last October 19, 2022.
The wrong account number is no longer active on GCash App. Gcash responded the amount being processed is not irreversible. What need to do to take my money back? The amount is there but the account is no longer active.
Wrong Account: [protected] - Randy Ganancial Bacabac (not active on GCash)
Amount Transferred: 4,500.00
The ticket number is [protected].
Barred Sim Card Number
Our staff smart number was barred for use for more or less two weeks now. The number is [protected]. It cannot make and receive calls and texts. However, surprisingly, it received spam messages. Several calls were already made in the customer service hotline *888. We already made 7 calls, including follow ups, starting October 17, 2022, with the following report no: a) [protected], b) [protected], c) [protected], d) [protected], e) [protected], f) [protected] and g) [protected]. Your customer service representative said that it was already escalated to the technical support team and under investigation. We are awaiting the return of the services but upon follow up, no feed back is yet made from the technical support team. Please be informed that there are important calls needed to be received in that number, as well as important contacts that know only that number. We have already suffered so much inconvenience in continuously following up on this. We are thinking of elevating this matter with our lawyers as it is unfair on our side that the issue still remains unresolved up to his moment.
Your immediate action on this matter will be very much appreciated. Thank you.
Desired outcome: Return of service of the sim card number (call, texts, etc.)
Smart Signature complaint
I am Rain and I am filing a complaint in behalf of my brother - JV and father- Reymundo, who bought a phone mid-March to 1st week of April 2022 in Rulls Apalit Branch.
Upon receipt of the said phone, one promodiser of said branch 'offered' my brother and father a "free Smart Signature Postpaid SIM card" which can be used for FREE in the next 3 months.
As the claim was free, they took the SIM and this promodiser asked them to sign documents for proof that the SIM had been claimed. Without reading the documents as she claimed it was only for compliance purposes, they signed the documents.
Upon arrival at home, we tried setting up the phone following the instructions on the brochure to no avail. The SIM wasn't working, hence we did not used it.
Only till June 2022 did we received a billing statement from SMART that we have a pending bill around 1600+php. We immediately reported said incident at SMART office in SM Pampanga. An agent took my contact details and said that we will updated in a month. No update was received hence I believed the case is still being investigated.
Only till Oct 13 did we receive another message from SMART that our pending bill had gone up to around 16k-17k! Frustrated with the message, we immediately went to the same SMART Brach Office in SM Pampanga.
The lady who assisted us seemed to pass the blame at us for only following up today regarding the complaint. I told her that we were notified that we will be contacted, she still insisted it was our fault. I asked her why our bill came up to around 17k, she mentioned that the reason of this bill was due to the termination we did not requested! If only we knew we are going to still be charged for the same amount, we could have used it, and not get it terminated. They didnt even asked us if we accept the termination.
The phone was only around 5k, and the bill we didnt used gone up to 17k. This a product we did not even need and this is only causing us stress. This is frustrating.
Can someone give me a call to discuss further what I can do to solve this issue?
Desired outcome: Solve this issue without me paying even a cent.
Filing this as a formal complaint with Smart Communications as they failed to refund my payment of P15,719.00 on March 2, 2022. After processing this payment, March 3, 2022, a day after I made the payment, my online account thru smart.com got cancelled. There's no way I cancelled this application as I just paid this huge amount of money. Same day I called Smart customer service, I was told that they have received the payment and will take care of the cancelled account. I also emailed online [protected]@smart.com and [protected]@smart.com to let them know of what's going on with my account but got no response from them until now. I keep calling customer service and sending emails but still no response. I went to nearest Smart Store at SM Novaliches and requested assistance for refund but it's just the same, they told me they will send email and create ticket but nothing's happening. I went there 4 times already, but refund hasn't been processed. Please help me on this, I was planning to ask help from Raffy Tulfo in Action, but I can't afford to go there as I have work during weekdays. I badly need this money as I worked really hard to save this amount.

CONTACT NUMBER: [protected]
ACCOUNT NUMBER: [protected] (account number where I processed the payment. No actual account number for smart account as it's a new line.)
Below are the screenshots for proof of payment, proof of cancelled account and email when I sent them my refund request and all.
I would really appreciate you help me on this.
Desired outcome: I NEED MY MONEY BACK
September 7, 2022 Dear SMART: Smart Communications collecting agency keeps on harassing me by insisting that I have to pay a certain amount for the services that I have not used. The sim card that they issued when I applied for a 999/ Plan/PROMO 499 was lost and I cannot find it. I repeatedly said it in several phone calls that I received from the...Read full review of Smart Communications and 1 comment
No contract on smart/pldt enterprise but continue to bill me
My contract for 3500 corporate accounte ended last may 2022. The same month I renewed my plan from 3500 to 1200 but not yet processed from your end because of system's error and no available device per your staff. To my surprised I still billed @ 3500php. Since I dont have a contract should be billed at regular rate. And my plan now is 1200. I immediately reported but no one fix it. I didnt pay for 3months from june to august and cut my line. No outgoing and even incoming texts and calls for 3weeks. I contacted the processor they said they will look into it since its not mu fault
Incompetent sales territory supervisor
This girl named DANA PEREY, wife of SOUTH LUZON TERRITORY SUPERVISOR, ROBERT PEREY is very unprofessional. She always process the applications LATE and never gives update about it. Also, she is so childish when it comes to handling concerns. She is also immature and cannot handle stress. Very selfish that her time should be our priority and not the regular working hours. she would always start processing or answering ff's and concern late at 2pm . The clients would be tired of waiting for the long process and end up changing to other network.
Desired outcome: SHE SHOULD NOT HANDLE ANY PFS APPLICATIONS SINCE SHE IS NOT AN EMPLOYEE. IT SHOULD BE HER HUSBAND DOING THE JOB NOT HER WHO IS VERY INCOMPETENT AND IMMATURE. SHE EVEN CALL HER AGENTS AND THEIR CLIENTS BAD NAMES WHICH IS VERY UNETHICAL.
I'm working abroad and when I arrive in the Philippines I went straight to the customer service center to be specific in taytay sm mall branch she asked me for IDs and I provide because my main contact number can't call and even use internet data so I needed to buy new one but I cannot discard my main smart number because this is very important to specially...Read full review of Smart Communications
Application pending for 2 months
I am an existing smart enterprise user and I applied for a new connect last JUNE 15, 2022. I kept on asking for updates but I always get a templated answer even though different representatives are responding to my follow-up.. its always the " We have sent a follow-up to the support team". I tried to escalate this by calling the hotline and also by sending an email but I NEVER got to talk to a supervisor and the reps are just deffering me. I emailed last thursday for a final ask to the status of my application and i am now not receiving any response. I sent an email to both smart enterprise and the enterprise support but to no avail. BOTH DEPARTMENTS has the SAME TEMPLATED RESPONSE.
I hope you work on this customer service experice as there are a lot of competition around now and to come. I was enjoying my initial subscription thats why I applied for a new one. However this is the experince that I received. -- VERY DISSAPOINTING!
Desired outcome: Real status update is given and supervisors to answer escalation request!
Post paid application
On August 5, 2022, I submitted an application for a postpaid plan. The next day, I received a call asking for my three-month banking statement. While speaking with the agent, I submitted the file with the access code, and he confirmed access to it. I also included the address of my company in my email. After that day, I kept receiving numerous emails and texts requesting the same document. I started calling your CS every other day to inquire why you were still requesting the document that I sent already, but all they would say was that they would escalate the issue to the online department and can't do anything further more. Finally, today, I received a call from your online department informing me that my application was returned by the validation team because i didn't send my banking statement and company address which is not true because I did. The representative that I've spoke with today confirmed that i sent those files two weeks ago which they failed to forward to the validation department and that is not my fault. So everyday you kept on bugging me, asking the same document when it's someone from your department is clearly not doing their part. The customer service who called today is very unempathetic and didn't care about your customer's frustration. I can't imagine how poor our customer service here in PH, not that I know.
Desired outcome: Better customer service and a faster application process. You should come up with a plan of having a direct hotline for online application/concern.
I have spoken to 5 CSR through Facebook since 3 weeks ago, but nobody has resolved my case. They told me it would be resolved in 24 hours. 🤦🏾♀️ Another incident : One of the agents I was chatting with on FB asked me on the same minute if I was still available and ended the conversation (I waited for 30 mins just to be entertained by an agent). I wouldn’t be surprised though as I had been calling them from outside the Philippines since 2019, asked my brother to visit the Smart Centre, and finally when I came back to the Philippines just this year 2022, they had finally resolved my first case.
Desired outcome: Do their JOB!!!
Plan 599 24 momths lock in
July 18, 2022 I went to smart sm consolacion to apply for another plan 599 for my mother who has an existing sun number.. i asked the smart rep if this was possible she asked for the number and checked it. She then assured me that it was indeed possible to retain the number from prepaid to post paid. I went ahead signed the forms and chose the aavilable unit for this plan.. Later that evening the smart rep sent me a message that tha plan was approved. I told her I will drop by by wednesday to settle the payments for the 2 month advance and the unit. I made the payment and when she handed the OR , i asked her about the sim...if i will get a new sim or maintain the old one..this is where the problem arise. The rep forgot to issue the same prepaid number and handed me another sim with another number...so i told her this is not what i settled for. The manager of the store assured me that they will do their best to address this concern by changing the number.. after 3 weeks of making the ff up. They said it is not possible. I wanted to cancel the plan amd they said that the plan has already been activated...how unfair their employees mistake and I get to pay for it?. I want this issue escalate because as a consumer... i did my part to make the payment.
Desired outcome: I want the number change if not possible i want a refund and cancel the plan 599.
Bill Dispute Invalid Pre-termination Fee
I'm writing to you to request assistance and ESCALATE the SMART TELECOMMUNICATION Company for not resolving my concern on bill dispute that was raised since May 11, 2022.
My contract with SMART was ended since Feb 15, 2022, with account number [protected] w/ mobile number [protected]. After the end contract, I requested my plan to be downgraded from plan 1500 to 800 and it took effect on March 16, 2022. On April, I received a billing statement that is more than I expected, and I noticed that they charged me a pre-termination fee amounting to 1500.00.
I called the SMART Telecom Customer Serviced and raised a ticket to reverse the pre-term fee. The ticket was raised since May 2022 over 2 mons now and no one has returned to me to give update of feedback despite of several calls that I made to them to follow up. And while I am waiting for bill correction, my line was redirected several times and got suspension on my account today.
Please assist to contact the Leadership of SMART Telecom to resolve this issue because according to the customer service representatives that I spoke with they already ESCALATED to their billing department, but no one is resolving the case. This is very frustrating experience as I my line was disconnected several times and I had to contact them using my globe line because my service was disconnected
Desired outcome: REVERSAL OF PRE_TERM FEE AND CORRECTION OF MY BILLCOMPENSATION FOR SEVERAL TIMES MY LINE WAS DISCONNECTED AND I AM USING MY GLOBE SERVICE FOR CALLING THEM SEVERAL TIMES
Smart did not disconnect my account after paying my bills and after 2 months of their neglect of not disconnecting, they want me to pay 2 months again
SMART did not disconnect my account after paying my bills and after 2 months of their neglect of not disconnecting, they want me to pay 2 months again before they disconnect my line. That's too much! I asked a certain ACE to remedy this but he is pressing me to pay again! He was also rude of leaving our chat while we were still chatting.
I asked for his ID number and also the name of his supervisor and his number so that I could bring my complaint to a higher autority but he did not care to give it, in fact, I asked 4 times!
#[protected] that's the account, you can check that and for sure you can call me.
I can provide our communications if Smart will request it since I screenshot all of them.
Desired outcome: resolve my problem. disconnect my account ASAP!
