Patriot Mobile Reviews (18)

Don't believe AM-Radio Talk Show HostsI have never written a review before, that is how bad my experience was with Patriot Mobile.
I moved from one city to another and transferred my cell phone service to the new city. The coverage in the new city was poor so I was looking for an alternative cell phone carrier. I have an iPhone 6 I am happy with so I called Patriot Mobile because they advertise on all the right-wing programs I listen to on talk radio.
I was helped by a guy named Derek who gave me his personal number and extension to call him since one of the problems I identified as being unacceptable with my current cell phone carrier was there was no way to reach anyone by phone, and the toll-free number had me on hold for over an hour sometimes. Derek set me up on an inexpensive plan and told me they would be shipping me a SIM card explaining that I would just replace the SIM card currently in my iPhone with the one from Patriot Mobile.
Four days later I received the SIM card and a simple 4”x6” “How-To” card with instructions. The instructions were simple and numbered 1 through 5. I completed all 5 steps, and tossed the SIM card that was currently in my iPhone into the kitchen trashcan between steps 2 and 3. Once completing the steps, the card instructs you to “ACTIVATE YOUR SERVICE” by calling 1-877-367-7524. I dialed the number and heard an error message telling me I had no service because the phone was not activated. I couldn’t activate the phone because the phone was not activated. This pissed me off because I needed the phone for my work. I went online with my laptop and sent an urgent email message to Patriot Mobile Customer Service and got an automated email reply stating that they had gotten my message. After 3 hours I still had no instructions from Patriot Mobile sent to my email and sent them another urgent message telling them I had no alternative phone to call them from. I was brand new in the city and didn’t even know anyone to ask to use their phone to call Patriot Mobile.
The entire day went by and I was unable to use my phone. The only solution I could think of was to pull the kitchen trash and search for the previous SIM card. The super small size of what I was looking for required me to sift through the waste with a fine tooth comb and a flashlight in order to locate it. I wiped it off and put it back in my iPhone and had cellular service once more.
I called Derek at the personal number he provided me and got his voice mail. I explained what had happened and that I was pretty upset and asked him to call me back ASAP to talk me through the process of activating my phone. He did not return the call that day or the next and I left him another message telling him I wanted a refund for the prepaid charges because I was going to cancel Patriot Mobile. Derek never returned either of my calls.
At this point I called the main Patriot Mobile number (972-PATRIOT) and stayed on hold for a good while before being connected to someone who told me he could activate the SIM card without me even putting it into my iPhone.
I was absolutely gob smacked! If that was the case, why did the card instruct me to insert the new SIM card and THEN call to activate it? In fact, the “How-To” card is sent to all people who sign up with Patriot Mobile who bring their own device. So, ALL new BYOD customers receive the same instruction card and in all likelihood, I was not the first person to experience this Catch-22 activation issue. So the biggest question becomes: Why have they not rectified the situation? Why are they sending out these cards when it is clear there is a problem with the instructions assuming that the vast majority of customers do not have a second phone or landline?

Hi Mr [redacted] We received a Revdex.com complaint that you purchased a $phone card thinking that it is for days but you only got days of credit Actually we don’t even offer a day plan so there are no Day refill cards out in circulation Looking at your refill history, you refilled with day plans (for $19.99) in December and January, then you switched over to refill with the $day plans on March 29, April 6, and April The difference between the plans is that the $day plan offers unlimited data while the $day plan only offers 100MBWith that said, we appreciate your continued patronage and would like to offer you a one-time credit of another days (in addition to the days) of service or we can convert your plan over to the $plan and give you another days of service If acceptable, please withdraw your Revdex.com complaint and reply to this email and let me know which plana you would like to stay on

I called to get information about new service and spoke with a gentleman whose demeanor was extremely polite and professional. He was well-informed about the coverage, service, and device requirements and was also like-minded when I mentioned that I would contact Apple for new devices and trade-ins because I prefer dealing with them as opposed to the carrier. I am pleased with the fact that there is a new carrier service that supports conservative views even though I am a middle of the road person. There doesn't seem to be a party for centrists, so I switched from Dem to Republican in light of the chaos facing this country, and I am looking forward to doing business with any company that supports our Constitutional rights.
