More Ways to Contact Bell Canada Customer Service

There are of course other ways to contact Bell Canada customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.
Live Chat
If phone-based customer service is not available, or the wait times are long, many people prefer chat as a next-best option. Some even prefer it to calling on the phone. Luckily, Bell Canada provides this option.
Bell Canada's website - Customer Service
Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Bell Canada customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
