T-Mobile’s lead came primarily through the gracefulness of its support on the phone. It often scored the best either in shuttling a customer from an automated phone system to a real person or through direct phone contact. Verizon also did well with direct contact and was good at helping online.

As with past surveys, the best help came from talking to a live person, whether on the phone or in person at a store. The lowest scores came from methods automated response systems or web-based help, which dipped individual responders’ scores as low as 704 and 684.

Most requests for help were closely split between technical problems, usual billing questions and inaccurate charges. Call quality and concerns about high price were also significant factors.
