Any one else think IG's customer support is an utter disgrace?

Question

I've had trouble with them since I opened the account, but it's come to a head today as I had a problem with the platform which has stopped me from placing trades.  An urgent inquiry you would think, but I've been unable to raise anyone on the phone line, it just rings for hours without being picked up, and the live support team are useless.  40 minute plus wait just to have someone that is completely clueless about the platform or trading tell you to ring the phone line again.  I've missed out on an entry point I've been waiting on for a while now because of this, and I'm becoming so exasperated I think I need to change brokers.  Am I missing something here? their website says its 24/5 customer support from experts yet I've never managed to find one.

IG support is terrible.  I have had an account for more years than I care to remember and they have lost the link between my live account and my community profile.  Each email reply I get is from a different person who just repeats the same irrelevant questions and points the last person sent.  There's only so many times I can handle the instructions "clear cookies", "use chrome".

Has anyone else had the link between their account and community profile lost?  If so, how was the link restored?  I keep getting asked t o complete my profile even though I have been posting on the forum for 4 years.

I don't understand why @IGCharlotte doesn't often reply when tagged, or why other representatives of IG don't bother to address issues raised on here. 

it would help if you used the correct tag which will auto fill if right such as @CharlotteIG and the font turns red. 

But as I mentioned in another thread earlier today in the forum;

... this forum was set up for clients to exchange info and ideas and was never meant to be a back door to the helpdesk, though occassionally a moderator may perform that task - based on long term observation - I can say it's more likely they won't.

    • IG's "Trade of the Week" video (26-Apr) suggested going LONG on GBPCAD. After I'd put on a small position I read your post on CAD strength. I wished I'd seen your post first  I was stopped out within a few days.
    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........
