They are your typical monopoly. I have a two line phone. When a line
is busy, it lights up. Noticed it on one day when I was the only one in
the house. I picked it up and I hear this guy on the line talking trash
to some girl. I said hello and the guy tells the girl he'll call her
back and hangs up. Long story shorter, it was a Bellsouth guy on the
pole in my front yard. Told me they do that all the time. I got the
guys supervisor's # and left 5-6 messages, he never returned my call.
Just last month, I was trying to get call busy forward setup on my line.
I talked to 7 people, all of who gave me different timeframes in which
it would be working. The last person I talked to was a supervisor. I
told her I ought to take my service else where. Her comment was 'would
you like me to connect you?' I said, to what? she said, 'to customer
service to disconnect your service.'
They bloody don't care. Any time I have the opportunity to put my money
elsewhere, I'll do it.
