    Hi everyone, this is my first post here i usually just lurk.

    Like many of you i was really excited to order a Moto X after getting my promo code, unfortunately i wasn't as lucky to get one. My first Moto X order was canceled because i used a forwarding address. I called Motorola support and they said they could update my shipping address and they will reprocess the order again. I chatted with their support to update my address and here is how it went.

    I called the number listed above, spent around 30 min with them and they told me they can't process the order and i have to reorder again with the new address. I made a new order and a day later it was canceled again.

    There is no reason shown at all just canceled and call us. I called the number and spent 47 min with support basically just confirming my information. The lady would ask me to confirm my phone number and then put me on hold for almost 10-15 min. She then ask to confirm my address and then again on hold for 10-15 min and so on until i got disconnected, i didn't even know why it was canceled. At the point i was fed up and i didn't want the Moto x or anything to do with Motorola. Two days later i received this email

    i didn't want the order anymore, this was my response:

    I spent 47 min on hold with your support yesterday confirming my information, and you guys still cant figure out how to process the order. Now you want me to call again and do what? stay on
    hold? This is a waste of time, I don't want your stupid device anymore and I am never going to buy anything from Motorola again.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    i thought that would be the end it of it but i was wrong they completely ignored me and sent this a few days later. I don't even know what its supposed to mean.

    I thought i made it clear that i don't want the device but this is what i got today. They reversed one of the canceled orders and reprocessed it, yet they were telling me that they couldn't do any changes to the orders. They also reprocessed a canceled order without my consent and after it i made it clear that i don't want it.

    I spoke with chat just a few hours ago and this is what they said
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Fawn: Hi, my name is Fawn. How may I help you?
    ******** *******: Hi
    ******** *******: I would like you to refer to Incident # 131214-000146 and I want you to read the last thing I wrote there.
    Fawn: Hello. What may I help you with?
    Fawn: Ok. One moment please.
    ******** *******: My Moto x order was cancelled twice.
    ******** *******: When I got fed up with Motorola customer service and process, I told them very clearly that I dont want the device (Moto X) anymore.
    Fawn: Okay. Let me see what I can do to assist you. One moment sir.
    ******** *******: Now one of those orders were reprocessed and being prepared for shipping without my consent.
    ******** *******: I want the order 00266928 to be canceled immediately before it ships.
    Fawn: I apologize for the inconvenience let me see what I can do to solve this.
    Fawn: The order is at a point that its not able to be cancelled. Once you get the product you are welcome to contact us to get a free shipping label to return the product.
    ******** *******: Please dont waste more of my time and yours.
    ******** *******: If the order ships I wont accept it and will return it back to sender
    Fawn: I do want you to know that if you refuse the package instead of getting an RMA from us the refund process will take much longer.
    ******** *******: I will also dispute any charges made on my credit card.
    Fawn: You are welcome to dispute the charges if you would like. If you contact us once you get it and we give you a RMA your refund will happen much sooner.
    Fawn: I apologize for the inconvenience.
    ******** *******: you have no right to process the order when i clearly stated that i dont want it
    Fawn: Once the order is past a certain point there is nothing we can do to reverse it.
    ******** *******: it was already canceled
    ******** *******: i didnt make the order again
    Fawn: Just contact us once you receive it so we can get the refund for you quicker.
    Fawn: Again I apologize there is nothing we can do to cancel the order at this point. Contact us when you get it so we can give you a RMA

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    I really don't want the Moto x now at all, it will only remind me of the horrible experience i had with Motorola.
    I never encountered such a horrible costumer service before, and i bought hundreds of product online, am i being unreasonable with my requests?

    would love to hear your thoughts about this and a course of action.

    Honestly, I think you should keep the phone. Not only will it be easier at this point, but you'll get over this experience with customer support--especially once you start using the phone regularly. At that point, you'll be glad you have an awesome device.

    There are many retailers that do not allow cancellations after an order is placed. They do it for a variety of reasons, but in the end, it is cheaper for them to not allow cancellations than to allow them. I can't tell you how many times this has happened to me with many different companies.

    Bottom line is that if you had gone the RMA route, you would get your refund faster.

    they shouldn't have sent it in the first place, these orders were already canceled.

    It sounds like you had a pretty bad experience and that sucks. At this point why not just try the phone? If you like it keep it, if not send it back. Why make yourself settle for another phone you may not like as much just because you had a bad experience with the order process. Its not the end of the world. You might as well get enjoyment out of the phone now that it is on its way.

    This seems to be a "common theme" for the Motorola C/S as evidenced by this thread and also the Motorola Moto X forum, bad customer service! I too had a similar occurrence with an order for a Motorola Air Jacket case for my Moto X. What one would assume, would be a simple order, ended up being over an hour of phone time with them, numerous put on holds for 10-15 minutes, lots of apologizes but overall very inept at making a simple task a "cluster".

    This is one of many lousy experiences with Moto customer "service". No reason to go into it, but as ultravisitor said in post #2, you get over it after using the device..it's that good. Kinda like being in a restaurant with awful service, but if the food is good you eventually forget how bad the service was

    I wouldn't say it's a common theme at all. Just search the forum here and you'll see where a TON of us are extremely pleased with Motorola. That said, their decision to process your order anyway is weird and totally not cool. Your second cancellation is strange, it's almost like they were missing a part of whatever combination you ordered and someone cancelled it instead of putting it on hold. I don't know. If it's any consolation, I have zero reservations about Motorola. They got mine out fast, they threw in a $25 Google Play card because I couldn't get the redemption for a $10 one to work, and they were prompt the whole way. I don't blame you for feeling like you do, but like it's been mentioned, you should give the device a try. I'm a Nexus guy at heart and I've always messed with whatever device is in my pocket, but the Moto X is easily the most satisfying I've ever owned. Don't settle for what you don't want. You wanted the MX enough to attempt to purchase it, so give it a week and reevaluate.

    I'm not making excuses for how Motorola handled things in your case, rather just playing Devil's Advocate for a really nice device.

    I feel for you. I went through he-ll with the CSR, too. And, I chatted with "Fawn" as well and she was clueless. I asked for her supervisor and she was helpful - but I still don't trust Motorola...or their devices. If you really feel strongly about not wanting a Moto X, just get a refund. Unfortunately, a lot of incompetent off-shore CSRs are the ones to "handle" issues - and they do it SO badly.

    @Tony Rizzo Have you tried disputing the transaction with your bank ?

    I already contacted my Chase credit card and put a note in my file. I will give Motorola until the first of January then dispute the charge with Chase.

    They shipped mine . This is the first time i am not thrilled to receive a new device

    Folks I had a disaster of a time getting my Moto X which was very similar to what was discussed. I waited for hours on hold for someone that week. I feel your frustration.

    All I can say is try to understand the reps aren't the ones completely at fault.

    And never use the chat feature. All the chat people are not very good compared to the phone reps on Austin. They made things happen for me.

    Myb87- that is super frustrating! It kinda blows my mind that this could even happen.

    If you're asking for advice, mine would be to at least try the phone out. A grudge is hard to overcome but if any phone can do it it's the moto x.

    I sure hope this is priority one on Motos list. I'm sure they have a contract that can't get out of with their overseas call center that needs to expire but jeez. The stories keep coming.

    You only get the US reps on the phone during regular working hours. After hours and on weekends you get the call center in India.

    I can't complain about any of the customer service I received from Motorola, both chat and by phone. My dev ed took 1 week to ship after the Cyber Monday sale.

    While I can certainly understand the OP's frustration, I think we all have to realize that things like this are bound to happen. First of all, the Moto X is new, the Motomaker system is new, and there are huge numbers of orders being processed right now. Remember the complaints from all of the Nexus 4 people when they could not place an order or when Google ran out so quickly?

    I am sorry for the OP's situation and hopefully Motorola is learning from this as Google did.

    The main advantage of the using the chat system would be that you have a record of what was discussed and told to you and by whom.

    My opinion - return the phone. you seem set on not having it now, do not blame you at all after all that BS.

    second choice - call or chat with them when you have the device. Tell them the hell you went through with it and you are still leaning towards returning it. However, you want some compensation for your time. 50% off accessories and at least a $25 google play card.

    I go a $25 google play card just complaining about not being able to sign up for Moto care cause I am AT&T and moto care is a lot better.

    good luck and sorry to hear about the awful support.

    Motorola really needs to improve their CS. I have some Apple products and dealing with them is much easier and more civilized. If Motorola wants to compete in the smart phone market they really have to ratchet up their CS. Oh....I love my MOTO X!!!
