What are the hours and when should I call?

Lenovo operates the call center for this 855-253-6686 phone number Mon-Fri 9am-9pm, Sat-Sun 11am-8pm ET. The short answer is that you should call on a Monday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 61 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Lenovo phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Lenovo staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Lenovo is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Wednesday, which averages 300% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 61 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Monday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Friday.

The best time to call Lenovo

In summation, the best day to call Lenovo is Monday. It isn't the least busy day, but the fact that hold times are shortest combined with it being on the busy side tells us that Lenovo staffs up on Monday to handle the higher call volume, and that makes it the best time to call.

Calling this Lenovo Customer Number

I have a Lenovo laptop, but I accidentally dropped it, and now the corner of the screen is a bit unhinged. This wouldn't be a problem, but since the Lenovo folds to become a tablet, this tiny flap is causing my screen to think it's been put to sleep. Therefore, if I jiggle the screen the right way, it turns off my computer. This is an obvious problem as my laptop has to sit still while I'm typing; otherwise, it will turn itself off. I basically can't do any work while I'm on the move anymore, so I thought I would call Lenovo to see what they could do for me. 

I didn't know if there might be some sort of warranty still good on it since I haven't had it longer than a year or something else that could offset the repair price. If the piece could be replaced, I know it would have to be done by someone who works at Lenovo, so either way, that was the place to start. I expected to be on hold for a while because, between sales and technical support, there are a lot of reasons why people might be calling Lenovo. However, I was very pleasantly surprised as the company has its stuff together. 

I dialed the number, and an automated voice assistant greeted me and quickly sorted out why I was calling. It said, "Hello, Thanks for calling Lenovo. Let’s get you to the right place. I have three options for technical service, sales, or customer care. For technical support or warranty questions for a product or service you already own, please press 1. To speak with Lenovo sales for new orders or questions about a product, please press 2. To speak to customer care about an existing order, please press 3." I chose technical support since they would be the ones to provide me with a solution, and then I was told that I had to press 1 for English, which I did. 

Then it gave me two options: "If you require technical support for Thinkpad, ThinkCentre, or server products, press 1. Do you need technical support for IdeaPad or the technical center, press 2." I pressed 2, and after a loud dialing, an agent named Roy picked up. Roy had a very thick accent, but he was able to talk about my options. I would have to pay for the repair, but I had options to save me from replacing the laptop.

More Lenovo Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact Lenovo customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

Lenovo Customer Service Live Chat

shop.lenovo.com - Customer Service
Click "Click to chat" at the top
lenovo.com - Sales
Use this link to connect with customer service via 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, Lenovo provides this option.

Lenovo Customer Service on X (formerly Twitter)

twitter.com/LenovoSupport - Technical Support
Use the link to connect with customer service through Twitter
Lenovo, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account.

Lenovo Customer Service on Facebook / Messenger

facebook.com/lenovoUS - Customer Service
Use this link to connect with customer service through Facebook
Some customer service teams, like that of Lenovo, accept inquiries through Facebook Messenger. This is a good option if you have a Facebook account, and you may even be able to converse live with an agent this way.

Lenovo Customer Help Desk / Web Support

pcsupport.lenovo.com - Technical Support
Use this link to find customer service help through their website
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Lenovo 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.
