“Are you looking for something on pay monthly?” Well, yes I am, like I said before. “Alrighty”, he said, like he was Ned Flanders from The Simpsons

“Everything I told you before.” What? She had been babbling on about prepay before. I had made in clear always my interest is in contract email

All that for £30 seemed pretty good but Ayub had so far neglected to reveal one major piece of information. “You’ll have to pay an extra £5 for the unlimited bolt-on”

I got the feeling Ed was keen on small talk but I wasn’t in the mood for this after taking so long and trying so hard to find an answer

That would bring my monthly charge to £23 a month, still well below what I was prepared to spend

When I said the whole push email thing was alien to me, he said: “Okay, no worries. We have a budget to work with so that helps a lot”

Summary

This wasn’t really an overly difficult enquiry and most of the networks should have done better. For some reason, Virgin’s Anna didn’t understand what I was asking about and Orange’s CSA wasted too much time on information I didn’t need.

Ayub at O2 seemed uncertain for a lot of the call and had a habit of springing nasty surprises. Ed at Vodafone was too informal. Louise put in a solid shift but was convinced all 3’s phones offered push email. T-Mobile was by far the best performer here, with Shaun’s a really decent performance.
