    Grrrr, happens to me too ! Or, the rep you’re talking to can’t handle your problem, and transfers your call to someone who presumably CAN. The new rep has to have you repeat everything AGAIN. They have no clue what you just told the last rep.

    Directv says at the beginning by recording that they have your phone number. Then when you finally get someone, they ask what is your phone number?

    Well yea you have to repeat…legal & security concerns keep us from capturing but the account type tells the system where to route the call. So if you are willing to pay 5 times as much for our products…we can have a person waiting on your every call…

    The one I really like is after talking to a rep and giving him/her all the details, they say they are transferring my call to a specialist. And I hear them pushing buttons and then on-hold music, and then “click, click”. And then after a few seconds, a woman’s voice is heard, “If you would like to make a call, please hang up and then dial the number.” … CLICK

    I forget which carrier it is (but I’m thinking AT&T) that has on their IVR (Interactive Voice Response aka automated menu) the following:

    blah-blah And in what state is the service located? For example, if it’s in Ohio, please say “Ohio.” blah-blah

    (That is pretty much an exact quote. I had to call them quite often for the company I worked for in regards to phone issues, etc as we were the IT/Help desk for a lot of businesses.)
