Making the app iOS 10 ready
They charge you extra to buy credit
This is an update to a review I wrote several weeks back, about the over charge for credit. And the truth needs to come out, so here it is:
I got an email from Rebtel where I was invited to recharge in the Rebtel website to avoid paying the 40% fee; which suggests that Rebtel is forced by Apple to pay around 40% for App Store top ups. If you want to recharge your Rebtel account thru the App Store, then, you are charged that overage that Apple charges the company. As much as I love Apple, I must say this is abusive, in my opinion. And also, in my opinion, Rebtel should be open, unless legally bound due to disclosure agreements etc., and let us customers know what's happening so that we are better and more timely informed and do not end up writing the kind of reviews I wrote several weeks ago, out of ignorance of what was happening. In sum, I take back my criticism of the company, because obviously they have not much of a choice, and also want to say that the call quality is outstanding and it is by far, the cheapest option to call countries like Cuba and other Caribbean islands. -Thank you
Suppresses incoming messages, information
Rebtel suppresses the messages from the other side. Even if the other phone (the phone which you are calling to) is switched off or not reachable, I still here ring on my side which is very misleading and sometimes disturbing as I would be under the assumption that the other person is not picking up the call despite it ringing. Rebtel does not tell us the actual message from the other phone suppresses the same. Again, I spent almost 30 mins today dialing a number from Rebtel as it was RINGING on my side, however when I dialed from my direct office phone, I got to know that it was actually switched off and effectively I wasted all my time there. I contacted customer support over this but as usual they were not even able to understand my concern. I am changing to Skype as it has introduced monthly plans now !
Worst customer service
I've tried using this app on 2 occasions after the huge overhaul they've had. On both occasions, I purchased the credit, it would charge me instantly, but the credit would never show up in the app. The only way to contact support is through email, to which they never replied, twice, or, through Rebtel Help page on Facebook, it takes them, on average 24-48 hours to reply, even though they've read your message. Their first excuse is always: "We had technical issues, it should be working now." And it never does, so you let them know that's it's not working (they don't even bother checking your personal account to see if YOUR specific problem has been resolved) and then you wait another 24-48 hours for another vague excuse, and then after another 24-48 you finally get your problem fixed. Horrible, horrible customer service.
