Assurance Wireless phone reviews on Trustpilot website

I found a lot of reviews on the Trustpilot site and almost 90% of the reviews were bad reviews. Let’s start with the good reviews, there weren’t a lot of good reviews but some customers wrote about how happy they were with the privileges and features given to customers by the company. A few customers  spoke about the company’s customer service and seemed satisfied with the politeness and professionalism of customer service agents. Some customers mentioned the company’s great cell coverage service.  Here’s one of the reviews:

•I am very happy with my phone and very thankful. Yeah it might not be my old S9 plus but I can call, text, watch YouTube, listen to Pandora, unlimited talk, text, data and 10gb of hot spot. Only downside is the battery doesn’t last the longest but I think I can live with that. Customer service was great with helping me get my phone up and running also. One more thing, I live in the middle of nowhere and have good service.

Now onto the bad reviews, some customers complained that their data kept disappearing and they tried to solve the issue but customer service didn’t do anything about their complaints. A lot of customers claimed the company lied about giving eligible customers fre phones. Some claimed they have been waiting for 3-6 months for said free phone but it never came even though they were assured they would receive a free phone. The customers who received the free phone complained that some of the phones were faulty. Some customers also complained that their own phones were not compatible with Assurance wireless service, you have to get a phone from the company to be able to use their services. Here’s one:

•If I could give assurance wireless negative Stars I would but unfortunately you have to give one assurance wireless is by far the worst place to get any kind of customer service . They do not care what they have to say for a good review they will lie and tell you that they are sending a phone and it will be on the way and all you have to do is leave a review and it will give you the phone quicker this has happened to me three times I have spent the last two three weeks trying to work on getting my services back after trying to stay with this company for 3 years this is how I’m repaid.

Almost in tears at how frustrated I was I turned to here to write a review and to tell others what I’ve gone through that way they will not have to go threw it themselves. Unfortunately more will not be done they will continue on scamming customers who are in desperate need they should be shut down and it’s a shame that companies like this scammers like this exist.

Assurance Wireless reviews on Sitejabber website

I found some reviews on Assurance wireless phone services and on this site there were hardly any good reviews in site. The very few I found  were happy with their free phones and the fast delivery of the phones. Here’s a few reviews: 

•It was so fast and easy The application is so short and the staff are so very helpful Before you know it you have a phone! It was an all around pleasurable experience.

•I was very pleased with the quality of the phone brand new phone. Assurance wireless is way better then Q link wireless. I am very pleased with my phone keep up the good work assurance wireless.

Now onto the bad reviews, there were a lot of complaints about the late deliveries of phones or no delivery at all. There were also some complaints about being given misleading information and unfulfilled promises from the company and their employees. There were some mentions about the phones being faulty or not working. Some customers wrote about how some of the company’s staff don’t speak English and were not able to communicate properly and solve their issues. There also complaints about dropped calls, network issues, low quality services and the company’s phones not allowing customers to use the wifi calling feature. Here’s a few reviews:

•Just going to list the issues. 1. Takes like 5 tries before it connects to a network to use your phone. 2. Drops calls regularly. 3. incompatible with most cell phones, you have to use their crappy devices. Sends messages that crash your phone if sim is used in an unlocked cell phone that isn’t theirs. 4. Missed calls. 5. Missed text messages. 6 only gives you 350 minutes a moth that roll over and neither does your data. Just the worst lifeline company and service you can get. If I could give no stars I would.

•I have been waiting for my phone for TWO MONTHS. Their “alleged” customer service agents can’t do much other than read a script and have little problem solving authority and, of course, there never is a supervisor available. I have been given 3 or 4 promises of “expedited delivery” and have been told my problem would be “escalated”. But, of course, nobody ever calls, writes or texts AND my phone has not arrived and they can’t provide a tracking number for the shipment. TWO MONTHS, 8 calls. Useless.

  1. It took awhile to get my first phone, then half way through the original set up, it shut down, to never ever light up again.

    Took to weeks for them to send me a new one and it shuts off, here, there, when ever it felt like it. I have an 84-year old mother who depends on me to fix things and help her. She lives out in the country, tries to call me for help. I’m sitting at home doing nothing, not worrying about a thing because, my phone WON’T ring! It’s off! On its own.

    Some times once a day, some times several times a day. I get their robot on the phone, and when you do get a real person, they have no idea what their saying, and the caller definitely can’t understand them! It’s been months and they’ve done nothing. Lots of other companies out there, I’m moving on.

  2. I received my Assurance Wireless phone very quickly, however, it’s useless. It will not stay connected, once you do get connected it drops EVERY single call. I have a phone through Metro BY T-Mobile and have zero issues with connection where I live, so that’s definitely not the problem. The phone is no more than an ugly paper weight, honestly.

  3. I have assurance wireless since the middle of march 2023, my phone is the orbic smart phone finger print security, lifeline service sometimes cuts out in some places where I live but phone has been seriously freezing up takes a few times to restart phone now my phone won’t unlock with pin and finger print scanner on the backside of phone won’t unlock says I need to pin code to unlock so phone can startup its not broke screen is completely unscratched, not broken phone has never been dropped but screen is good but when I go to type in my pin code the arrow and Starkey or pound key are highlighted and called the phone company a agent said that I needed to top – up pay 40 for my service my cellphone has not been in service for a year I should be on the manufacture warranty ever since I talked to the assurance wireless agent my lifeline phone service has been dropped discontinued disconnected my assurance wireless account is unable to login my phone number is not working phone is works except for the touchscreen is completely frozen I tried to hard reset but Android will not come on , I don’t know what’s going on but the assurance wireless agent that I talked to didn’t hardlynspeak English it was broken English and the agent was not helping me all she said was I

  4. My Fourth replacement phone snd still pleged with troubles, does what it swants opening apps on Its own acord, hangs most times, keyboard sticky and useless, cant type anything correctly, doesnt D/L MMS messages, doesnt scroll jumps back to top, changes settings, shuts off ring, text hours late etc. So a large delay on touch screen causing constant errors. Yet they insist on gereplacing from their large inventory selection with same defective model. Their is noone available to vorrect the matter ss Customer no service states have no control of warehouse shipping. Its a bait and switch as they always offer a paid for phone upgrade as solution.
