Decent app… unusable new system

The app is fine, works well, and does what it's supposed to.

The system of picking up and dropping off a bike on any street corner within the S-Bahn ring was fantastic — I used it all the time. Then a few years ago, they changed it to where you are only allowed to take and leave the bikes at one of the limited number of Call-A-Bike stations throughout Berlin. None of the stations are convenient to where I live or where I'm going, and they are often empty (meaning no pick up) or completely full (meaning ride to another station to drop off). I've stopped using the system after the change.

Be careful Call A Bike hardly works and overcharges

The pause didn’t work so I was charged 10Euro since the bike had been parked outside of a station area. I tried to rent a few more bikes later in the day and the app failed each time - not consistent. Today (2weeks later), I received a 90Euro bill and I haven’t been in Berlin or Germany for 10days, apparently the meter was still running. Denying them via my credit card and will seek a correction on my account. Horrible experience for something that should be simple and enjoyable. Great idea, epic fail on execution and technology.

THERE MUST BE SOMETHING WRONG WHEN THEY TURN OFF THEIR INSTAGRAM COMMENTS. This is the worst experience with customer support and a company I have ever had. I live in the US and rented a bike while I was in Germany. I got an email after that my payment didn't go through even though I see it in my bank. They threaten to take further action if not paid so to avoid a headache I'd rather pay 9 extra euros and be done. BUT there is NO WAY TO PAY. The customer support team rarely replies and only does so with what seems like auto-generated responses. I recommend you DO NOT use. NOT worth it.
