Initial Business Response / [redacted] (1000, 10, 2015/02/24) */ I tried reaching customer by phone with no responseI sent an email on Feb 17, along with bill statements showing proof of amount owing of $I attempted to retrieve phone call dated Dec 19, with no data applicableThere is no adjustment being issued and no notes indicating a credit was to be issuedThe credits for the charges were appliedThe billing does not justify any creditBell Aliant considers this closed Initial Consumer Rebuttal / [redacted] (3000, 12, 2015/02/25) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) Bell continues to make excuses for why they can't find any evidence of the phone call in questionFirst they said there were no records of the call, then when I proved that there were, they claim the recording of such phone calls are only available for daysThen she tells me that unless I have his name (which was possibly ***), there's nothing she could doI told her she might want to look at who was answering the phone that day, since we know the day, time, and the number I calledBell does not want to take responsibility for its employees giving out informationI'd also like to point out that when I returned the cable boxes and remotes to the Bell store in the [redacted] the employee who processed the transaction [redacted] didn't say a word about the a lance on the account [redacted] If an employee didn't tell me there was a credit on the account, why would I tell my partner only minutes after the phone call took place what the employee said? I'm not even asking for the credit the employee told me I was owed in the first place, I simply want the "balance" removed and the account finally closedThe point is that I called Bell to give them the reference number for the returned cable boxes which they charged me for after I returned them so they would reverse the charge, at which point after their employee corrected their ERROR, I asked if there was a balance on the accountHe said NO, and I took his word for factWhen he said there was a $credit that would be taken off my next bill, I had to point out the whole reason for my call was that I cancelled the account because I moved and therefore I would not be receiving anymore bills[redacted] Business Rebuttal: After review of the Bell Aliant account, there are no adjustments being issuedBell Aliant stands with decision that the balance owing is $Bell Aliant considers this closed Final Consumer Response / [redacted] (4200, 16, 2015/03/13) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)

My parents have been without telephone and tv service since early Wednesday AM. When we called for assistance we were told the earliest a tech could be sent out was Saturday between 8-noon. My father is very ill and my parents need to be able to call for an ambulance in a moments notice and receive calls from doctors and hospitals regarding appointments. We explained this to Bell and they maintained that it would still be Saturday before a tech would be sent out.
When we inquired if my parents had internet if the service would happen quicker we were told yes!
This is unacceptable as my fathers safety is of utmost importance.
It is now Saturday and a technician should up after noon and established that a cable is broken. My parents are now waiting for a boom truck to arrive and we’re told it would happen ASAP and not given a definite time.
This has been an incredibly frustrating situation, from the date for repair to being told a supervisor would call us back and never getting a call. Bell never offered my parents any solutions eg call forwarding or any compensation. I am truly disgusted by this company’s lack of concern, and lack of service.
