View Full Version : Horrible Customer Service

01 January 2007, 07:53 PM
Has anyone else had problems contacting E-on? I have tried their toll-free number, but it is always busy. I have tried emailing, but this is a waste of time.

I was promised a free upgrade to Vue 6 when I purchased Vue 5 last summer. I have never heard from E-on regarding this free upgrade.

Very disappointed.

I always get my answers very soon from e-on. Did you use the contact option on the website?

I have tried this approached several times. I feel they keep giving me the run around.

I am very upset. I should not even post. Much too emotional.

Here is the deal - I was promised a free upgrade last July once v6 comes out. E-on is now saying I missed my chance to take advantage of this upgrade. It make no sense to me. If a software company promises an upgrade, they should give you an upgrade. No strings attached. I had no idea that this was a limited time offer, or that it was up to me to ask E-on for the upgrade. I thought they would contact me once it was available!

I have my original emails from when I purchase v5. No where does it say that I must act on this upgrade before certain amount of time.

Newbie here. I saw this thread and had to post.

I've run into the exact same problem. E-on keeps telling me I should have read their newsletters, but I never received their newsletters! Now they're saying I can't take advantage of the upgrade offer.

Ultimately, I'm not sure who's to blame. I want to blame E-on, but they seem to think it's my fault.

Oh well. Water under the bridge.

I will also say that they have the WORST customer service I have ever seen. Just last week I got a response from a question I posted 6 months joke!

I just sent them a question 3 weeks ago which I have yet to hear back on.

Well like any company that has a tool such as this, they most likley have hundreds of emails to answer a day, who knows who the staff is and how many they have. Answering e-mails six months from the original expected date of return can mean many things, including that they have several hundred emails a day not only on certain product contacts but on pre sale questions, phone operators might be busy 24/7, this is something that should be common from a company that has produced a great product such as what e-on has produced. You can not just look at it from your own perspective, you must look at it from there's as well.

itīs always sad when support and customer care fails but e.on do treat their customers real nicely, not to say there wont be situations were the customers feels mistreated-

sadly enough mistakes do happen sometimes, which doesnt make it a bad company, far from it, e.on is in my humble opinion usualy a very client caring company.

Obviously if you never recieved their newsletter and was promised a free upgrade upon your v5 purchase e.on should honor that deal and im sure they will if that was the case but i can understand e.onīs pov aswell since they did state in several newsletters and such that it was for a limited period of time.

with that said, have you sent a copy of their original email to their support (where they promised you a free upgrade).

I actually mailed a letter to e-on's customer service department soon after starting this thread. Sure enough, I heard back from e-on several days later and was extremely pleased with their response.

Lets just say I won't be switching over to Terragen anytime soon!

Thanks e-on for listening to your customers.
