Absolutely amazed at the poor customer service and support from Optus, been a home phone and brodaband customer for over 15years, placed an order for the new iphone and iwatch, did not receive any proper confirmation, the web site said in stock, contacted 3 online chat customer service staff over the last week, 2 just told me that the order was waiting for allocation of stock at the warehouse, this was even as recent as last friday - Oct 26th, the person contacted today finally tells me the truth that there is no stock and my order is on backorder, this is deceptive conduct and poor salemanship and customer service from Optus. Optus should be ashamed of this as there was no communication for a week and I as the customer have to chase it up each time. The order was a birthday present for my wife which is due this weekend.
Absolutely disgusting, allocating orders should be an automated process and stock levels should be known before hand before commiting to a customer. I work at a "C" level and will not tolerate this level of customer service from my company.
