New mobile plan without a new sim card

Post by robin » Thu Feb 25, 2016 10:27 am

Hi,

I am with exetel almost over 7 years and very happy about your services.

This morning, I change my mobile plan because I got a new mobile phone and need more data. It is supposed, as all other mobile service providers follow, a new sim card will be delivered with the new mobile plan. However, I did not see the sim type options when I change the plan online, When I call back, your salesgirl told me I have to pay another $20 for swapping my current sim card to a Nano sim card. Come on, this is a new mobile plan and a new contract, and a new sim card should be provided without any extra charge. I was even told if I am a new customer, the new sim card will be provided without a charge, but existing customers have to pay. That is not fair and not the right way to treat your loyal customer who used your home phone, mobile and broadband services over 7 years. Exetel should treat loyal customers more well than the new customers, at least equally, but not on the opposite way. Very unhappy on the unfair policy for existing customers.

Hi Robin,

Could you PM your mobile service number in order to further investigate this.

Hi. I have the same situation, almost 10 years adsl plus a number of mobiles. Speaking with a sales rep they said there was no way I could get around the extra for the sim card. Robin did they resolve it for you?
