Instank Ink Free Trial not applied and IMPOSSIBLE to get through to HP

HP Recommended

How do you avail of your 2-month instank ink free trial? I have been billed since day one despite setting up as instructed. Have also tried calling the help line, whatsapping the given number and using the virtual agent several times and have not received any human help or answers - it's a disgraceful service.

I cannot comment on "Whatsapp" - it is not available in my region.

Might be OK - might not.

One thing I gleaned from the video on the subject is that support might not always be available (not all hours / days).

Presumably, one's conversation is saved until someone can answer.  ??



Some regions in the World offer WhatsApp to connect with HP Support

What else?

Contact Instant Ink support via the Website for your region.

I would guess that "hours of operation" apply - that is, you may have to wait for regular business hours.

Hi @Jay_G24, I have not received a private message from you and when trying to message you directly, the system tells me I have 'reached my limit' for sending private messages, when I have never sent one before.
