Global Texts not working . No response from Support

Post by goliver »

I have a Global Texting add on with 72 days until expiry. Texts to the USA are sent and received but texts to the UK do not arrive.
Texts sent to the same number from a Public Mobile account work fine. In bound texts from the UK arrive. Replies are not
received although Fongo says they are sent.

My add-on in the app shows 72 days for CANADA AND 72 days for Global even though I bought only Global.

Fongo support seems to be completely AWOL. The only response I've had is that I should check the expiry on my add on ....

Is there any way of escalating problems within Fongo. As it stands I am about to travel abroad with half a telco solution.

You can check your ticket status by logging in at That's an account for tickets (zendesk) only and is completely separate from your Fongo Mobile account or any other Fongo account you may have. Use the same email address that you use to submit tickets. Do not use the same password as your Fongo Mobile account. Again, these two accounts are unrelated.

Support staff does not respond to tickets on weekends or holidays. Support hours are 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. EST. They are not obliged to respond on the these user-to-user forums.

If "Support System" indicates "Degraded Performance", ticket response time can take up to a week (or longer).

Fongo does have I'm not sure if anyone there responds to direct messages.
Similarly, they appear to be on Facebook: Again, I don't know whether anyone will respond to you.
They might.

Their phone number is 6478471355, but I don't believe they answer phone calls. You may be able to leave a message. I doubt they'll respond to it.

If they won't read your ticket or otherwise communicate with you, CCTS is the only other way I can think of to get through to Fongo as a customer. ... aint-form/
