Can't get any response to return my phone purchased online


I ordered an Iphone SE 16 gb on Dec 6, after I placed the order I realized I could have purchased the Iphone SE with 64 gb for an additional $50 with the same tab.  I immediately sent an email but I sent it to webstore@koodomobile.com, not sure where I found that email but I did not receive an undelivered email nor did I receive a response.  I received the phone on Friday Dec 9, I tried to contact Koodo by telephone but waited on hold for nearly an hour and had other commitments and had to hang up.  I then went to a Kiosk thinking perhaps they could help me, and no they couldn’t.  After reading comments on this community forum, I realized I had emailed the wrong address.  So, I sent an email to koodo.webstore@koodomobile.com on Sun Dec 11, knowing it was a Sunday I didn’t expect to hear until Monday, however I did not.  I sent another email Monday and still have not had a response from Koodo!  I hope someone can help me, my order number is HFO16739364.

Hi Dee - glad to hear that you got your order so quickly. Sorry to hear that we didn't get back to you quick enough to update it. The web store has been digging out of a backlog of orders from the Bright Friday/Cyber Monday weekend, which is the cause for delay in getting back to you. Also, the hours for the Koodo web store are Tuesday through Friday, 3pm to 9pm EST. That said, I'll forward this post to the right team to initiate the exchange process. We'll need to send out a return mailer envelope, you'll send back your phone, and once received, the replacement will be mailed back out. Hang tight and someone will reach out to help facilitate this for you.

As long as Koodo has a record of you initiating the return within the return period (such as the email that you sent to the webstore), you should be fine.

Hi Jeff - sorry to hear that you weren't able to reach someone. As Ivan mentioned, as long as we receive your request within the 15-day period, you're covered. I've flagged this with the web store team, they'll confirm receipt of your email, and send you a return mailer to send your phone back. Once we receive it, we'll process the return and reverse any payment/credits as applicable. Once that's done, you're free to purchase the phone you want, either online again, or in store.

I have been trying to return a defective phone as well.  I went to a Koodo kiosk and they would not take and said because I bought on-line I have to return back to web store.  I was also told that the store extends the return phone date until January 15th due to holidays and that the pone purchase was a.gift.  I am currently past my 15 days from the time of purchase but it was a.gift and was not opened until then and it shot.  Please help me as well!  When I was in the mall, every phone provider Kiosk was loaded with customers and it does not surprise me the Koodo one was empty.  With service like this it does not surprise me at all!  Getting fed up!
Thank you!  I do understand it's that time of year and am trying to be patient.  On a positive note, I was very impressed at how fast the phone was delivered!  Hoping the return and repurchase will be as quick!  Thanks again!

Hi there - confirming that the return request has been initiated. A return label will be sent for you to send the phone back, as mentioned above. Once we receive the phone, all transactions/credits will be reversed and at that point you are free to either re-order the phone online, or purchase it in-store.

Thank you!  If I decide I would like to order the new phone prior to you receiving it back, I will have to pay the tab off first but it will be credited once phone is received back...correct?  I would like to have the replacement phone by Christmas.

Hey Sherika - I've flagged this with the web store team. You've contacted us within the 15 days, so all good. I'll get them to send out a return mailer so you can send the phone package back. Once we receive it, any pending refunds/credits will be applied and/or tab reversed and then you can purchase your new phone online or in-store.

@Jeff - I just got word this morning that the return mailer was sent out to you yesterday. You should receive that within a couple of business days. Once you get it, please send back the phone you purchased, along with all contents. Once received by us, the return will be processed and completed and then you're free to purchase your new phone, online or in-store.

Hey Ryan - so long as the request to return was submitted within 15 days, you're good. I'll forward this to the web store team to ensure it's on their radar, but once they get to your request in the queue, a return mailer will be sent to you and you can return the phone with all contents. Once received, all refunds/credits will be processed and you're free to purchase a new phone if you wish.

Thanks, Ranjan. It seems I still didn't get any return mailer or response. An estimate time frame would be helpful.

Hi Ryan - likely a slight delay because of the holidays. Following up with the team to see if where in the queue this sits. Will share an update once I have one.

Hi there - looks like the order was shipped out to you on Wednesday and is en route. Your best bet at this point would be to not accept the delivery and it will get returned back to us. In the meantime, I'll flag this with the team and let them know that you're not interested in the phone any more.
