Appalling customer support

[ Edited ]

Please supply a contact phone number - as no one responds to my emails (see below) I need to speak to someone asap. I AM PAYING A PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION FOR A SERVICE I CANNOT USE!! All I need are my login details - I can't even cancel my subscription as I can't log in.

I have still had no response – you sent me this ‘holding’ email on 2 March but nothing has happened since. Please could you sort this out as a matter of urgency.

Hi - any news on your investigations on my account yet? This is getting frustrating now as I'm paying for a service I can't use. Look forward to hearing from you asap!

I am having problems logging in to Spotify. I think that I may have 2 separate accounts as all was fine until I started using Spotify via Sonos. 

I had to change my username to that above when I got Sonos and I can\'t remember my password. However, when I click the \'forgotten password\' it asks for my username. If I put in the number above, it says that I am using my Facebook login details and sends me to Facebook. Once there, if I access my login details, it gives me a different username/number to the one above.

This is driving me mad - all I need is my Spotify password but it\'s proving impossible to retrieve it. Help asap please!

For your reference this is Case #: 284432

Judging by your emails there, it seems your login details would be just the same as the ones as you would use to log into Facebook.

However, to log into your Sonos with an account created through Facebook, it's a slightly different process. You'll need to follow the steps shown here

Re: Appalling customer support

Thank you but as usual I have ended up in a continuous loop of frustration. I did as suggested above - set a new password for my device - and (no surpises here) got a message saying that my account is not connected with Facebook. I don't want to log in via Facebook, I just want to login to Spotify and be able to use it!! As I said in an earlier email, it appears that when I started using Sonos(November) and had to create a new password everything went pear shaped. 


Can someone just sort this out? There seems to be a complete mix up between my original Spotify Free account and my Premium account. Can't you just cancel any existing accounts I have and just set up a new one? As I can't access either I'm really hacked off at paying premium rate and having no service.

Re: Appalling customer support

I'm filing a complaint with the BBB regarding their service. This company is pathetic.

Re: Appalling customer support

@mamabear51 please don't post personal details like email addresses on a public forum. It sounds like your issue is not the same one as this thread was dealing with - please try uninstalling and reinstalling and if that doesnt work start a new thread and post details of what you are doing along with any error messages you get

Re: Appalling customer support

I agree. The lack of customer support for a service of this sort is appalling. I have searched for some time to find a telephone number or email address without success. This company obviously has written off serving the customer and sneaking off to the bank to deposit the profits they make by ignoring the customers who keep on subscribing. The only answer is boycott. Stop paying any fees to them until they show some respect. Christopher Owen
