It has been one of those days – and all over technology. Well how was I supposed to know that my iphone could, at the touch of the screen, become a giant display? Of course I discovered that it only required another spaced tap to reduce the size. I had searched the net and couldn’t find anyone with the same problem. No wonder – it isn’t a problem but a stupid user.
As for the BT phone line. It seems that arbitrarily BT have disabled the phone line, though not the broadband. Honestly – I pay by monthly direct debit! Anyway, I got this information from the website. So far, so good. However, when I tried to find out when it would be restored it was a whole different matter. Firstly, I tried phoning them from a broadband phone, only to discover that they wanted to disable the broadband to check it – Duh! (Never thought I would use that kind of slang, but I feel like using a whole lot worse.) Sending an email to ask for info was not any easier, the form is definitely not user friendly. But in the end I managed to send an email off. Not even an acknowledgement in 2hrs. Pah!
And I am supposed to be a techno-savvy OAP! Still, the rant makes me feel marginally better.
