@Pomgolian: Re: FFS
you would have thought that, I did.
Many phone numbers in our bit of Devon are one number shorter than many, it is not at all unusual for web forms etc to insist that our number is wrong, which I respond to by adding in a digit so that they can't contact us...
Ironically when we moved in, there was a problem with [BT] moving our account across and switching the necessaries on re broadband.
The most helpful person at BT insisted that:
- The number was wrong, I pointed out that BT allocated it to us
- It couldn't be working because it was wrong [see above], I pointed out that I was using the number to call her...
- An engineer visit [£] would be needed to asess it as there had never been broadband, my retort was the house is about 500 years old (presumably hasn't moved more than a few inches over the period), and the lovely chap we bought the house from had broadband from BT
A few hours later our broadband was working.
Funny old world innit???
