Rated 3 out of 5 by Hate the 800 number prompts The customer service people are nice and helpful, if I could ever get to them. Requiring the password to be typed out from characters to numbers in order to get to someone is a joke. After I finally get to a representative, they hang up on me so I have to go through this twice before someone actually talks to me. December 10, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Efficient and Convenient Since starting my trading with my Fidelity account, I find it to be easy to move money into and out of the account, as well as place and receive orders. While the trade cost is a little higher than other places, I am happy with the quality of service and dependability of the company. December 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleased with Fidelity I am happy enough with the older style of account listing and do not use the new now. Fidelity offers a great deal of useful information on its site and it is easy to gain access to. December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Customer Service Had an issue with IPhone App and uderstanding something about trading. Talked to John K. He gave me excellent service & was very proactive. Got back to me quickly with answer on IPhone App. Very polite, helpful & gave acurate information. John gets 5 stars for Fidelity November 25, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by User Interface is a security and privacy hazard I think it makes no sense and is a privacy hazard to give portfolio totals and other account information - on the left of each each page in your web interface and definitely not on a mobile. I think account # should be masked with maybe just aliases and just list the stocks/positions. Giving account info and totals in such bold letters can be seen by anybody in a public place and hence is a security hazard. I even noted parts of an account number and positions from a co-passenger on a train. I have to look either side before I can use your interfaces. The new one especially both in web and mobile seems to think the position value is the key information to login to. The main reason to use these on a daily basis is to tract current positions, if possible with a level II and also potential stocks that I may want to take a position. Not to see my account total every time I login. November 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to use Fidelity's on-line set up is very easy to use. I can manage my accounts and also watch potential investments that I am considering. November 17, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by secure Left Fidelity after 35 years, 1.5 years later, I moved all my money back. Looked for help to invest my money. Seem Fidelity is only interested in pushing me towards managed accts. Don't want that, so am seeking outside help to invest my money looking at the long term, buy and hold. November 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Service for Fidelity Despite having 5 accounts with Fidelity, I do not have a single person with a direct dial phone, email or fax that I can reach for any kind of service. This company does not offer customer service. I have no confidence in their ability to assist me with my investments. I am researching alternatives. November 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A quality outfit Fidelity has a great website that is easy to navigate. Although I have not used their customer service department, it is my expectation that it will be of the same quality as the other components Fidelity offers November 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by My one issue I used to work for a company that had their stock plan through Fidelity. I stopped working for them three years ago. Their stock plan has been showing zero $ on my portfolio page for three years. I don't want see it on my portfolio any longer. But for three years Fidelity has been able to figure out how to remove it from my portfolio. In internet time, three years means that means Fidelity doesn't really care or they would have fixed it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Everything I need to invest Everything needed to invest is found on the website. The one complaint is the inability of the site to find a company's symbol if there is a misspelling. Google can do it why can't you? When I don't know the correct spelling of a company or the exact name I go to Google and they find it. Perhaps you should speak to them. Aside from this I have recommended Fidelity to a fair number of people. October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by investor I have had a 401K and also a stock account and Fidelity has been fine. October 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Improvement I need to applaud your team for improvements to the site. I am a new user. Several months ago I registered several complaints/improvements re: working the site. As of today, whether it is based on larger feedback or mine--vast improvements made. The early start is the only reason I did not give best marks across the board. October 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid Good with the basics. Good customer service. Could improve in flexibility of web views. October 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy and Reponsive I find Fidelity to have easy internet access to all of my accounts. I'm able to make quick deposit and easy trades whether at work, home from a desktop to the ease of use via mobile access. Fidelity also provides online webinars that cover various topics for beginners to experienced investors. October 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Secure but hard to communicate with agents Overall the account works well. The major problem is getting a hold of an agent or getting them to respond to my emails in a timely (<24 hours) fashion. They often do not return calls or emails for more than a day. This needs quite a bit of improvement. I cannot manage my account effectively if I cannot communicate with staff effectively. October 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK - Needs lower fees Lower fees - The options platform was confusing, so I don't use it. Most important is lower the fee trades. The no load funds are great. Very good for a long term buy and hold, but lower fees for trading. October 7, 2014
