Itâ€™s no surprise anymore that whenever you call the PLDT hotline to report a problem, it will take ages and a day to get to talk to a support personnel. And you would still be lucky if that person can really help you or even give you a sound explanation.
Now PLDT is offering its subscribers a way to report complaints, do balance inquiries, apply for a service via SMS, etc. 24Ã—7.
This service is FREE but it still only available to SMART and Talk nâ€™ Text subscribers.
Hereâ€™s how to use 77171 TXTPRESS:

Now the question is, will it really offer any value to customers who wants. After texting, the only thing theyâ€™d get in return is an automated response. Does it really translate to a prompt action or follow-up? Or even a callback for that matter?
