I have had service with nTelos since 2013 when I first got the service the lady quoted us the wrong rates and service was all messed up but the company fixed it without a problem once everything is straight now I haven't had a problem with my service sense until now when they said that they were merging over with some new company I've had problems with my internet very sucky they have been telling me over and over again to please be patient soon as everything is changed over you won't have any problem but the minute that I have a problem and the internet conflicts with finances and money that goes to them then you get a nasty manager that wants to speak to you in a nice nasty way about what the new company is not going to do vs. What the old company had been doing overall I just want good phone service that I pay all of this money for the new company needs to know good customer service because of right now they don't have it

Ntelos - HORRIBLE Customer service and insurance plan

Not resolved

Ntelos has the worst customer service and HORRIFIC insurance plan. Why pay $100 for a stolen phone when you pay for the insurance in the first place?

One of my phones was stolen and they want to charge me $100 for the phone to replace it. I didn't even pay that much for the phone in the first place. Everytime I call ntelos they just want to transfer me to the insurance company and they say no matter what I have to pay $100.

I'm definitely going to write complaints wherever I can to let peole know that the insurance is a joke and so is there customer service. Maybe if enough people turn the insurance company into the Attorney Generals Office they may start being fair about what we have to pay for!

I can't believe you're having so much trouble with Ntelos. I've had their service for over 12 years, and they have been awesome to us in every way.

The deductibles are always like that, at all the insurance companies I've known about (I hate that too). I have had a lot of other services, but always come back the ntelos.

What other cell company will call you if you are going to have an overage and tell you will, offer to let you change to a plan temporarily that will save you $200, and give you truly unlimited service? I love them - wish more companies were like them, in fact.


I cancelled my insurance and just bought a used phone off craigslist. It was what I should have done in the first place before signing a contract.

I did NOT know that there was a deductable and when I bought the phone for some reason the guy didn't give me the paperwork on the insurance. Also to let you know, this is my second line that my boyfriend uses.

I'm very attached to my phone and I don't even walk out of a room in my house without it. He on the other hand obviously layed it down and someone stole it.

I'm not blaming him for anything because of some piece of trash that can't keep their hands off of things that isn't theirs but I guess they thought they needed it more then him. It's ok though it was a crappy phone anyways.


You do realize that When you have insurance for ANYTHING there is a deductable to pay when you need to make a claim, right? If you were to wreck your car would you hold the car dealership responsible?

Do you tell the insurance company you're not going to pay the deductable to get it repaired because you pay for it monthly? You're entitled to jack s***.

How do you let your phone get stolen anyway? My phone is MY PHONE. I don't loan it, set it down in a public place, or leave it anywhere.

If it did somehow float out of my pocket, I would understand that I am responsible for it. It's not mine until my two years is up.

NTelos Customer Service Sucks

Mccall Creek,Mississippi
Not resolved

I called NTelos "NO" customer service because in error my account had been set up with an automatic payment from the bank that was $2 less than the monthly bill. (The payment amount was given to me by the agent who "set me up".) This led to a $10 LATE CHARGE on a $2 UNDERPAYMENT FOR 10 MONTHS.

I incurred $98 in late payments and my phone was disconnected. I called April 29th and was given no assistance on this matter. One rep Alyson in Cancellation flatly refused to transfer me back to customer service or to any of her superiors. A CS supervisor Elisabeth basically told me there was nothing that they could do.

Other companies would observe that it was a good faith error and would recognize how absurd it is to charge$10 per month on a $2 underage and they would offer some adjustment.

I've been hearing that Ntelos has the worst customer service and I just experienced it! I've been a customer for over 15 years.

Went in to the retail store to buy 2 iphones from Nadine and upgrade our plans and they would not waive the buy out fee as the contract on one of the phones has 2 more weeks on the contract. So I called "customer loyalty" - Dionne - and they would rather lose me as a customer than to bend a rule by 2 weeks. Really?

We also have an aircard and home phone service with them. As a business, I don't see how they'll prosper with this attitude.


Another case of poor service and even worse...poor customer service. This customer has been ran in circles trying to get one small issue resolved.....a device that works with their service.

The first response was to email a generic email account at NTelos (which I have noticed more than once in this forum - nothing like a personal touch of a generic email account)...this is not the proper path forward as this poor customer would have to recite the entire case that has been on-going for sometime. NTelos....get your act together otherwise be prepared for a class-action law suite down the road.


AFter calling several times, spending at least 2 hours, they replaced my wifes phone. Hopefully now things will be better.

I had to explain myself and after her going into the store and them sending her back out without a phone, i blew up on customer service. I went through 3 different people before I talked to the right one. I even heard this comment from customer loyalty, "why are you asking this from us at customer loyalty, what are we supposed to do about the phone?" I told her, i didnt ask for customer loyalty, i asked for someone to solve my problem and they transferred me to you. So i guess she got someone else on the phone, and then that person had to get a supervisor, and after that, I asked that they call me back at home and they did.

So they gave me a 50$ credit, had to open 2 trouble tickets, talked to at least 5 different people each time I called but In the end, the phone seems to be working ok. I will post the status later.


I would like to say that I too have been victim to this carrier. My wife which i had to really talk into this, first time with a smartphone, me coming from verizon wireless and her from us cellular.

Her phone to date is still dropping calls, and they state at customer service that they have to send the phone off for repair, which im not going to do. I have done everything that they have asked me to, I also asked if I could just get her another phone and pay the difference, in which they told me no. I just picked both phones up at the end of november, no deposit customer here, paid over 400 for the phones, havent gotten back rebates. I can tell you that the milestone X that I have compared to the incredible on verizon is very slow.

The data service that they have is also slow which im willing to deal with and the other things I really can overlook. this reminds me when I sold ntelos when they first started here in WV, quite a few years ago. the service was horrible. I watched them go through bankruptcy, then recover, only again for the service to suck.

I said that i would never have the phones, ever, well i changed my mind and at this point I wish that I would have stayed where i was. Now im paying over 140 a month, just under 3 months in and still they arent holding up there end, but im still paying the bill. IM going into the store in charleston tomorrow and either they are going to change out the wifes phone, or im going to put them both on the counter and say cancel them.

When they ask me for the termination fee, im going to tell them to come and get it. Im tired of these companies that advertise superior service only to *** people off.


Went over on data usage, didn't get a email or pop up at 80%. Only got partial credit.

My name is Marta, I am a Customer Care Rep at nTelos. I apologize that you had a difficult experience trying to downgrade your phone in the local store, but offers made by Customer Loyalty cannot be honored in store as they must go through Customer Loyalty directly.

If you would like assistance in resolving this issue, I will be happy to help. Please email customerfirst@ntelos.com.


My experience with ntelos has been they suck as well! "Customer Loyalty Department" told me on the phone I could downgrade from spartphone service to basic phone service, as the manager at the local store refused to honor that offer.

Order our phones which were in stock, and then were told for the next 6 weeks they were out of stock. All the while still having to pay for smartphone service, because they wont let you downgrade until u buy basic phones from them.
