Summary

This Mystery Call was a mixed bag of surprises. T-Mobile’s and Vodafone’s efforts were shocking, and demonstrated a lack of knowledge, while 3 was marked as the crème de la crème.

T-Mobile and Vodafone had me feeling suicidle at their lack of knowledge and enthusiasm, while Orange and O2 got my blood boiling with their rude comments.

Virgin and 3 must be commended for their top notch service, but Virgin’s Gift missed out on top scores due to the confusion over subscription services.

I was surprised by the amount of effort 3 went to to make the experience exceptional, and Kishan by far stood out amongst the CSAs for all his efforts.
