CT02-026 In the Matter of the Complaint filed by Judy Callaway on behalf of Midwest Tire and Muffler, Inc., Rapid City, South Dakota, against McLeodUSA Telecommunications Services, Inc. Regarding Poor Quality of Customer Service, Failure to Transfer Service to New Carrier and Disputed Billing.

Complainant states that it began service with McLeodUSA on June 19, 2001. Complainant has had nothing trouble with the local McLeodUSA representative since service began. Complainant states that the McLeodUSA representative stated that it would reimburse the Complainant for the termination fees that would be charged for switching service to McLeodUSA. Complainant never received the credit. Complainant received poor customer service from the McLeodUSA employees during the numerous calls regarding the missing credit and problems with its phone service. Complainant switched its service to another provider and McLeodUSA will not release the Complainant's 800 numbers to the new provider. Complainant requests the McLeodUSA release all of their lines to the new provider, give the past due credit, and remove all termination of service fees McLeodUSA is now charging.
