Steve Herrod :

Hi, I'll be happy to help with this - can you let me know how many extensions you have and other than Internet & PDQ what other services the business requires?

Steve Herrod :

Am I right in assuming that all services are with BT at present?

Customer:

one pdq 1phone line one samsung dc s816 ibroadband

Customer:

yes

Steve Herrod :

Thanks - but how many handsets are connected to the dcs816?

Customer:

one phone line

Customer:

2 handsets

Customer:

are you able to help

Steve Herrod :

Yes, I hope so - for two handsets the dcs816 is probably overkill

Steve Herrod :

how long has it all been setup?

Customer:

over ten year bt took in on from a company called eurotell

Customer:

i pay bt insurance

Steve Herrod :

Ok, based on what you have I think you would only need a BT Featureline and Business Broadband

Steve Herrod :

the Feature line provides basic phone system services

Steve Herrod :

and is approx £20/month

Customer:

how do i go about getting this done say phone bt because no one get back to you

Steve Herrod :

Business Broadband should be between £11 and £30 /month

Steve Herrod :

which would work out at £150 /quarter maximum

Steve Herrod :

is there an Account Manager at BT assigned to your account at all?

Customer:

could you give me his name and phone number as i get passed around all the time

Steve Herrod :

they will have several usually so no idea of which person it would be

Steve Herrod :

is this the number you have been calling?

Steve Herrod :

0800(NNN) NNN-NNNN/strong>

Steve Herrod :

one way of getting a very quick response would be to use twitter to contact them (if you have an account) - I've used that several times previously when they have been unresponsive

Customer:

do you have any idea of cost to get the system up and running

Steve Herrod :

well as you already have a phone line it would need converting to a feature line

Steve Herrod :

which should be £60 although they may do it for free if you commit to a contract

Steve Herrod :

and the broadband should just remain as is

Steve Herrod :

if they need to send an engineer for the dcs816 then they may have a call-out fee as well but I would think they can waive this as you're signing up for new services

Steve Herrod :

and insurance would just be cancelled

Customer:

sorry i am just serving a customer

Steve Herrod :

that's ok

Steve Herrod :

This is also a number to try as well if you haven't already used this one

Steve Herrod :

0845(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>

Customer:

thankyou now can i print this of so i have all the info you have given me

Steve Herrod :

Yes, you should also be able to bookmark it so you can view it at anytime

Customer:

so sorry i dont know how to do this

Steve Herrod :

no problem - are you using Internet Explorer to view this page?

Customer:

yes

Steve Herrod :

Ok, there should be a little star icon in top right hand corner

Steve Herrod :

IE9 add to Favorites

Steve Herrod :

Customer:
