    Dell Promises Changes To Customer Support
    Company Says Service Department Hasn't Kept Up With Sales

    hahahahahahaha..... yeah right! Dell is even lying to the press about the
    source of their problems. the report is full of stuff that has been
    reported in here. of course it's because the person is an idiot or should
    have done something differently right?

    "but NewsCenter 5's Susan Wornick has been so inundated with calls of
    customer complaints that Dell is making changes."

    well it looks like only idiots are buying dell systems because there are
    more complaints than you can shake a stick at. all the bad word of mouth is
    going to cut smelly dell down to size!

  2. "well it looks like only idiots are buying dell systems..."

    I've bought two Dell systems. I'm extremely pleased with them. Are you
    calling me an idiot?

    "...all the bad word of mouth is going to cut smelly dell down to size!"

    Interesting that the reporter didn't mention whether the customers had a
    clue about how to use a computer in the first place, or whether they treated
    Dell's employees with respect. If any of them were like you, we know the

    if the shoe fits....

    and as usual the dell dolts stand ready to blame thousands and thousands of
    people that have had problems with dell in many areas, not just tech

    like the series says BUYER BEWARE of smelly dell that is.

  5. How are those of us, who haven't had (m)any problems with Dell, blaming
    "thousands and thousands of people" for anything?

    Your logic eludes me.

    this ng has plenty of this type of bs. it used to be the customer was
    always right. but dell and many in here has turned that approach on its head
    with its the customer is always wrong approach. or is it we're dell and
    we're big and you can't touch us so we'll abuse you at will until we decide
    to stop and torture the next sucker. they pick yer pocket then move on to
    the next victim. may all the dell droids live long enough to experience the
    dell hell that many of us have experienced.

    No, she didn't; but the reporter did quote the Dell representative as
    saying the following:

    "The company acknowledges losing many frustrated customers, but is trying to
    win them back with more personalized service."

    Well, that's a start. They at least now recognize they have a problem and
    that they are "losing many frustrated customers".

    Now all that remains to be seen is how they respond and how far they will go
    to get us back. Yes, my husband and I are among the "many frustrated
    customers" that they have lost(after three moderately high dollar

    Oh, yes, by how far they will go to get us back, I do not mean rebates.

    I believe it is going to take a major shift in how Dell deals with their
    customers after the sale is complete and that includes a substantial
    improvement in Tech Support including, but not limited to doing away with
    the "outsourcing " to overseas sites like India.

    Our latest experience was less than a week ago. 45 minutes waiting on a
    phone tree. 15 or more additional minutes waiting while the tech(?) was
    trying to find someone who could answer the question and now 4 or 5
    days(I've lost count) waiting for the promised response. Needless to say
    this is not going to help Dell get our business back

    And the reporter??

  9. The fact that you have two posts with insults in both shows much of
    your own character.
    If you need to shore up your own position with insults, you obviously
    lack the actual ability to support your own point.

    can't argue the facts of an independent report from a reporter of how bad
    dell stinks so you attack the messenger. the usual dell droid approach.
    and the beat goes on. dell stinks like truck full of tuna baking in the
    summer sun. no matter how much you try and blame others, the smell of dell
    hangs heavy and spreads far and wide. your attacks are laughable. as is
    dell's claim of changes.

  12. Dell has acknowledged problems. Apparently, your solution is to fix all
    the problems, TODAY. If you knew anything about corporate management,
    you'd realize that isn't going to happen. Not with Dell, not with most

    With your level of maturity and patience, I'd imagine that everyday life's
    a real bitch for you.

  13. "no matter how much you try and blame others..."
    Show me where I tried to blame anyone for anything.
    You now find it necessary to attribute ideas to people without cause.
    More of your character and the necessity to shore your position since
    you lack the proper ability.

    "can't argue..."
    Why would anyone want to argue with you?
    If you ever intelligently bring up a point, maybe you might get
    somewhere, till then...
    Arguing is silly, but you feel free to argue all you want...somewhere
    else is best.

    If you have a point you can make without insulting others, go ahead
    and make it.
    Otherwise you continue to show us a side you would probably rather us
    not see.

    Those with the ability to prove a point do it with intelligence.
    Those that can't often need to stoop to the low level of name calling
    to boost their own ego.
    Guess what...It doesn't work.

    I am in customer service, and during training, I was advised it costs a
    company something in the order of 7 times more to try to win back a *lost*
    customer(or aquire a new customer) than to try to retain an existing
    From a business' perspective, that would be scary.

    Kind of makes you wonder why the some companies(not necessarily Dell) don't
    make customer service and after-sales support one of the top(if not the
