4-Steps to Terminate your PLDT Line (BONUS: MONEY SAVING TIPS!)


14 Comments

Everyone has their own reasons why they want to terminate their PLDT line. Charges may apply if you didn’t finish your 2-year contract.

If you have completed your 2 –year contract (like in my case), remember that you can terminate your account anytime without paying additional charges. If you have pending bills, you have to settle your account first before PLDT can process the termination.

On this service review blog, I will share the 4- STEPS when terminating your account. PLUS tips on how to avail the most affordable, reliable and the fastest PLDT line available in your area.

Account Termination after Completing Your 2-Year Contract

Step 1: Call PLDT’s hotline 171

Customer service will give you an idea of your pending bills so you can settle your account and proceed with your termination.

Step 2: Prepare a Letter of Termination

The letter must include the following details:

  1. date
  2. account subscriber name,
  3.  account number,
  4. landline number, and
  5.  reason for termination.

Step 3: Go to PLDT office with cash

  1. Search for the nearest PLDT office in your area. The customer service/cashier will give you a computation of your pending bills to settle your account. Make sure you are bringing enough cash so you won’t need to come back in PLDT office.
  2. Don’t forget to bring 1 valid ID.

If you cannot go to the PLDT branch yourself, you can send a representative instead. Your representative should bring the following requirements:

  1.  letter of request,
  2.  your valid I.D.
  3. plus an authorization letter and
  4. your representative’s valid I.D.

Step 4: Wait for 2-3 weeks

Customer Service will give you a call to confirm the termination. They will ask you a few questions if you are sure about the termination.

Expect the Termination to happen  1-3 days after you received the call from PLDT.

I won’t keep you waiting for the BONUS SMART-MONEY TIP before subscribing to any 2-year internet contract, so read on.

BONUS: What is the most affordable, reliable and the fastest PLDT internet subscription in your area?

After I terminated my PLDT line, I spent time searching for other internet providers. Unfortunately, I was shocked how the price went up after 2 years! I’ve been comparing SUN, SMART, GLOBE and PLDT internet products and I could boldly say that PLDT is the most reliable. Please don’t get me wrong I am talking about a specific product here because some PLDT products, like their DSL get a lot of bad customer feedbacks.

Let me reveal this reliable product I’ve been bragging – PLDT’s Fibr product, costs PHP 1,299 per month, unlimited internet with landline (free PLDT NDD calls nationwide). This is the exact product I’ve been using for more than 2 years and never had I encountered any issues. Fast speed internet and can connect up to 6 gadgets.

This is the most affordable product PLDT has to offer! I purchased this product more than 2 years ago – the reason I decided to terminate is because I’m not using it too often. I don’t want my money being wasted on things I don’t use.

PLDT Fibr Plan 1299 is not advertised on their website so I called their customer service hotline, they confirmed that this product is still available. These are the only FIBR plans on their website http://pldthome.com/fibr quite costly hey.

3- quick steps below to avail this smart-money offer!

1. Check the availability

First thing you need to do to avail this product is to check if PLDT Fibr is available in your area. Go to this link to check https://shop.pldthome.com/Home/AreaCoverage?planId=1569

2. Prepare the requirements

You will need the requirements below to process your application.

    1. Application Form
    2. 2 Valid ID
    3. Proof of Billing

3. Go to the nearest PLDT office with your requirements

    1. Give your requirements to the customer service and tell them you are applying for PLDT Fibr Plan 1299
    2. They will give you time and date when the technical team can install PLDT Fibr in your house.

Bear in mind that PLDT Fibr Plan 1299 has a 2-year locked in contract.

Hope I was able to help you with your internet frustrations as I was in the same shoes 2 years ago.

How about you, how’s your experience with other internet service providers?

“MACHINE UNAVAILABLE” popped when card was removed after I deposit cash at BPI ATM Machine!


67 Comments

Hey guys! I’ve been a loyal BPI Account holder for years and it’s my first time to experience this inconvenience. BPI for me has the best customer service when it comes to face-to-face conversations. They are just a bit slack and probably not yet too organised with regards to their online customer support.

Read till the end of this article so you know how to handle this kind of frustration because of a sudden inconvenience.

My experience

I deposit this certain amount using the Deposit ATM Machine. After my transaction, the machine removed my card along with the notice on the screen MACHINE UNAVAILABLE! I waited for a minute to check if the machine will get my cash out of the machine, but it didn’t so I left.

At home, using the BPI App, I quickly checked if the cash I deposit came through my account, as we all know BPI does real-time account updates. To my surprise, the money I deposit didn’t came through! I called my cousin Sai who’s familiar with these instances so she advised me to report it ASAP. Which I did!

2 Failed Attempts

First, I tried to call their hotline (number provided below) but I was waiting for an agent to pick up my call yet  nobody’s picking up! So I just ended up leaving a message and asked them to call me back on my mobile number. Next day, no call from BPI.

Secondly, I sent a complaint email to expressonline@bpi.com.ph The Customer service was able to respond promptly via email and promised that a customer service agent will call me. Still, no call from BPI.

How to resolve this?

Here’s the big question, “What exactly you MUST do and How can you reach BPI Customer Service via phone call to get this sorted out ASAP?”

I won’t keep you waiting, read the quick steps below to get your money to your account ASAP.

Step 1: Do NOT leave the machine and get the 4-digits Terminal ID

The 4-digits Terminal ID is required to process your complaint and get your money to your account.

You can get the Terminal ID in two ways:

  1. The Terminal ID can be found in the deposit Machine where you did your transaction, look at the top of the screen that reads TID XXXX (4-digit numbers). Save the 4-digit Terminal ID on your phone or write it on a piece of paper. The customer service will need the 4-digits from you to process your complaint.
  2. INQUIRE BALANCE in the deposit Machine where you did your transaction and PRINT THE RECEIPT. On your receipt, find the LOCATION, below it, you will find 9000XXXX (4-digit numbers). Keep the receipt on your wallet and get it ready when the customer service asks for the 4-digits Terminal ID.

 

Step 2: Remember the Time, Date, and BPI Branch

Take note what time, date and branch where you did your transaction. These information will be asked by the customer service agent to help you resolve this case.

 

Step 3: Call BPI Customer Service

Get your landline phone and contact BPI’s 24/7 customer service hotline. Just be patient waiting for a customer service agent to pick up your call. It took me 20 minutes. Yeah frustrating hey!

Get your Account number ready. The customer service agent will also ask you a few questions to verify that it is your account.

  1. For provincial PLDT subscribers dial 1-800-188-89100 (toll-free calls)
  2. 89-100 for Metro Manila

The customer service agent will tell you that they will investigate your complaint and you have to wait 3 banking days to get this resolved.

IMPORTANT: Make sure to save the REFERENCE NUMBER provided by your agent. If this is not provided, you need to ask for it, remind the agent. You will need the Reference number in step 4.

Step 4: Follow Up

Call the hotline provided in Step 3 to follow up your case, get your reference number ready and tell it to the customer service agent.

I suggest calling BPI Customer Service everyday to speed it up.

Step 5: Check your account

After 3 banking days check your account if the cash you deposit came through. If your money didn’t appear on your account yet, repeat Step 4.

Hope I was able to help you handle this kind of frustrating situation. Share your experience on the comments below. 🙂

In this modern generation, gadgets are like partners of some people, partners in life. Some business men have their own cellphone and iPad. They use it to schedule their meetings and manage their time. While some students and kids use it for entertainment. Before anything else, let me give you a definition of  iPad from webopedia. iPad is  a new handheld tablet computing device from AppleInc. that first launched in January 2010. The iPad is designed for consumers who want a mobile device that is bigger than a smartphone but smaller than a laptop for entertainment multimedia. Wow! It really does sound cool and convenient. Maybe that’s the reason why many consumers wanted to have their own iPad. I also want to have my own, but I don’t want to buy, maybe I will just wait someone give it as a gift.

For those who are fond of gadgets, especially those who are using androids, android app builder can develop outstanding applications. To give you an idea of their services, they offer Android Utility Application, Android Widget Development, Android Games Development, Applications for Security, Applications for Multimedia Industry, Android m-commerce applications, Porting of existing web or mobile application to Android, Social Networking Application, LBS applications on Android.

To all mom’s and dad’s in the world, whatsoever your child call’s you, I want to tell you some super cute and useful stuffs for your beloved child! Isn’t for all the mom’s and dad’s, we all know that you always want to see your child wearing big smiles on their faces? You do everything for them to feel loved. Daddy works hard to be a good provider, to meet the needs of his family and to have a comfortable way of living in this beautiful world. Early in the morning, Mommy is already preparing a yummy breakfast for her child. Those efforts are really done with great love for their child. Parents also loves to surprise their precious children from small to big things. And when a smile is painted on your child’s face, all efforts paid!

Allow me to give you some ideas to make your child smile. We all know that kids loves toys right? Of course parent’s must not tolerate their kids to buy all the toys they want. Parent’s must guide their child in choosing the right toy. I think educational toys are the best. But, there are instances that your child did a very good job, for example in school, so I think as a sign of appreciation you can buy your child a token, like a toy he really loves. May it be an educational toy or a regular toy. Most important is the thought that you are a proud Mommy and Daddy.

If your child loves batman 3 games like turbo jetcruiser, deluxe flight strike batman, remote control tumbler, the bat and batman rider, wooden skate board, jokers wild-100 piece jigsaw puzzle, the dark night rises combat pack and more! There are also teddybears clothes and a collection of baby teething products! You have a lot of items to choose from. Make your child smile by rewarding him/her some gifts.
