  1. Oh, and the default software that is packed in with the BB, isnt worth the disc is burned on. Too many faults, clashes, and conflicts between microsoft apps (that were specifically designed) for the computer.
  2. That is what a BT employee would say, i have the phone logs to prove it. While the issue is down to cr@p service, its not necessarily the technical side of things that are causing the problems. Although there have been some technical issues which were not on my fault (after performing nearly 70 broadband setups for friends n family), BT refused to acknowledge there was a fault with their systems. One particular instance was I could view websites, but logging in was not possible due to a fault with the packet carriers (the way the info is sent). Msn, myspace, ebay, orange, and
  3. I am a BT broadband customer, suprisingly unstatisfied with my service. I am fed up of having repeated faults with my line, service, and customer "relations". Is it possible to get BT to withdraw the contract, so I am able to move onto a better provider. I am tied into a 12 month contract and 3 months into it already. Sick of waiting in excess of 45 mins to speak to someone reading from a script.
  4. I was employed directly with the company. I had a contract, which I signed when I started last year. I knew the company are cheap, becuase there are similar job and shop axes each year especially june and september, like clockwork.
  5. There was no date specified on my contract, so it was effectivley an ongoing temporary position.
  6. This practice surely is illegal. Its like buying a 2 year old car at brand new prices. Im pretty sure the principal that applies to retail should apply to this. If it is labeled at 5.28 pu then you pay that, irrespective of arrears. If a shop charges a customer more due to a recent price change, even though they have a written quote then that is illegal, isnt it?
  7. There was a common technique used a few years ago round our neck of the woods. People would use glue or another adhesive on the ATM, inwhich the machine would pay out but the money would be caught between the rollers and the metal fixing of the ATM. The people that have done this would then approach the machine at the end of the day and force the machine to open *crowbar or something* and take out the cash that would be there. I dont know how valid this is, but it was a rumour that someone I know admitted to doing. As to wether it was an "Im cool look at me" statement or an urban m
  8. the best part is, they haven't adjusted the credit side of things. Their not holding their end of the bargain up. It should be interesting to see how the next few weeks unfold.
  9. Well the cheeky beaurocrats offered me 395, turned it down. I want all my money back 800, not including the most recent ones past march. They have ten days or I will legally kick their ass.
  10. Hi folks. I've been looking around ACAS and DTI regarding redundancy rights and all that jazz. But I am at a loss over the finer legal issues regarding my circumstances. My sob story is as follows. *Ques the single violin* I was working for a Photographic Printing Chain “Klick Photopoint”, this companies head office is located in Glasgow. I had held my position for just under a year, something like 51 weeks. My contract was a temporary position and my title was sales assistant. I was originally covering maternity leave and doing 36 or so hours a week. Once the girl had come
  11. The idea of educating at a young age the importance of personal economics is something that should be addressed. Practically though, I don't think it would take off, there are just too many variables to take into account. Plus with the way that the system works its not that simple to financially manage a minimum wage job. Especially in relation to where you live (South West, and London being the most expensive places to live). Irrespective of someone's level of income, there are always going to be issues of financial management. The majority of the problems that fall throu
  12. Its funny really. They claim they can help. I begged and pleaded with them last year as my charges were working around a viscous cycle. They offered me no help, both before and afterwards they refused to help the situation. When my wages were paid in weekly (minimum wage + basic tax rate) they gave me no living allowance, and I actually had nothing for 6 weeks. Within those six weeks I relied upon the goodwill of customers + colleagues to make sure that nothing untoward happened to me (within those 6 weeks I lost 2 stone in weight, and went back on pre scripted med's) As for Abbey,
  13. The fault looks like an Operating System fault, that is known by Orange and Most other European countries. It has been an issue since September (the month that the contract was created). The faults were notified to orange in November, December, February, March, and April. Orange will not take the device back as there is no Insurance policy covering it. But the insurace is irrelevant considering that it is a known issue, and should be covered under both the manufacturers warrenty and Orange's terms and conditions to provide a working device. Orange keep insisting that I perform a "h
  14. I have been an orange customer for a while now. Since upgrading to a SPV M600, i have had nothing but problems with this model. Orange will send me in circles and do nothing to resolve the matter. i would like orange to either send me a new product or I cancel and refuse to pay my outstanding balance. They roped me into an 18 month contract and I still have a long while to go. The fault is with the software on the phone, and not on my fault. Therefor it will be covered by warrenty!? I am not taking out an orange insurance policy as they are quite frankly crap, and completely unrelev
  15. So, technically its down to the bank to rectify a situation they shouldn't have created to begin with?
