U.S. Cellular Payment System Upgrade Runs Into Trouble
U.S. Cellular has encountered trouble with its customer billing system after performing a system upgrade late last week. "We experienced system issues last Friday and over the weekend that affected the ability to process some customer transactions," said a U.S. Cellular representative to Phone Scoop in an email. "This is leading to longer than normal wait times when calling customer service, as well as extended wait times at our retail locations. The billing system is currently available through our Customer Service channel, but some stores are experiencing intermittent issues. We are working to fix these issues as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused." U.S. Cellular's Facebook page is rife with customer complaints about the billing system errors. According to U.S. Cellular, the new billing system will improve its ability to service customers once the ongoing issues are resolved.
