I just had a nice entertaining sales call from o2.

 

O2: “Hi, we’re calling from o2 to thank you for being a loyal customer and to let you know about some great offers we have for you to thank you for being loyal. Are you free to talk?”

Me: *watches code compile* “Sure why not!”

O2: “How do you find your O2 experience.”

Me: “Fine apart from having no signal anywhere.”

O2: “Oh.. right, are you happy with the amount of free minutes and texts you have? could we offer you more?”

Me: “I never use the ones I have, due to never having a signal.”

O2: “right, I see you have a data plan. Using the internet on your phone is good, do you need a bigger allowance so you can use it more?”

Me: “Never use the data, There are no places around here with an Internet signal.”

O2: “we are slowly upgrading our masts from 3G to 4G so you will soon have super fast internet to your phone. Does your phone handle 4G?”

Me: “4G? I’d be happy with 3G, No, I’d be happy with 1G or even just a phone signal…”

O2: “errr.. is there anyone else in your household with mobile phones?”

Me: “Yes.”

O2: “Ahhh.. are they on O2??”

Me: “Yes, yes they are….. currently”

O2: “And what’s their view of O2 and their accounts?”

Me: “They are happy, apart from not having a signal anywhere!!”

O2: “err, since you use a lot of Data would you consider or be interested in getting a contract with us with a tablet computer, we have a nice deal on iPads…..”

Me: “Didn’t we cover I don’t use the Phones data use because there is no signal anywhere.”

O2: “right.. errr.. ok.. hummm.. well Thank you, have a nice day….”

O2: *Hangs Up*

 

Phoning to talk about increasing use of phone and 4G. When there is NO phone signal where I live for even calls/texts. There is no signal during my commute to work, and barely a phone signal in the area I work (Phone only no data).  I believe the local Town has a 13 foot circle where you can get 3G, if the wind is blowing in the right direction.

This is a shame, I have been with O2 since before they were O2, My sim still says “BT Genie” on it. And apart from the last several years I never had any signal issues, I had voice/sms everywhere. And now, nowhere.

Isn’t progress great.
