Underwhelmed with Callback Service

What is the point of the callback service offered by the Koodo hotline?

I called around 7:45 pm and was told that there would be a wait time of around 1 hour, so I decided to take advantage of the callback that was offered. "At least 45 minutes", I was told. 45 minutes went by, one hour went by, two hours went by, five hours went by - I received the callback just before 1 am (about 55 minutes after midnight!). I was still up, so I took the call, and confirmed that I was me myself.

Then I found myself in a queue, again.

I can tell you that after 50 minutes the music starts to repeat. After 90 minutes on hold you are kicked out of the queue and sent back to start: Press 1 for this, press 2 for that, and so forth. The voice that interrupts the music is now female, instead of the erstwhile male. I don't know if that is a good or bad sign.

I probably could have had that experience much earlier in the evening. Why do we have to do this at 2:30 am?

Hello Daniel.

That is very unfortunate...I think it's a bug in the callback because there is no one available to take your call at that time. That would explain why you waited once you got the callback.

Try asking your question here. Chances are we will be able to help.
You can use koodos virtual assistant though to schedule a call back if need be.

As Allan said ask your question here. If you have to talk to Koodo here is the link to the virtual assistant. Click on "ask me" then type in "call back".
