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 Radio Shack 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 Radio Shack 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 Radio Shack is Friday. The most busy day to call is Tuesday. Again, this is based on a sample of 800 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 Tuesday.

The best time to call Radio Shack

In summation, the best day to call Radio Shack is Friday. This is not the day with the shortest wait on hold in the phone system, but we still recommend it for its ideal combination of low call volume and short hold times. Plus we believe that Radio Shack staffs the call center well on Friday.

Radio Shack Customer Email Addresses

Corresponding with a customer service department by email may not be your first choice, especially if your issue is urgent or time-sensitive. But email is a nearly ubiquitous form of communication, and Radio Shack will reply our your email.

Radio Shack Customer Service on Facebook / Messenger

Some customer service teams, like that of Radio Shack, 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.

Radio Shack Customer Help Desk / Web Support

support.radioshack.com - Customer Service
Don't call the store, the phone mail jail goes to great lengths to avoid human contact by anyone at corporate HQ. Keep following every prompt and do not accept any option that involves calling or locating a store near you.
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Radio Shack 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.
