Since we switched to another provider, we no longer have a landline.
We consciously made that choice because we were rarely, really only called by those extremely friendly Microsoft employees, by family or acquaintances there.
I haven't had them on the Smartphone yet, but just listen quietly, make sure it's not a collect call and wait.
Hi there, just to add my 2pennorth...when I get calls like these I just say "hang on a minute while I find my credit card", put the phone down and pick up the newspaper..after a couple of minutes I can hear a voice from the phone getting peed off and it goes dead....sorted!
I totally cannot understand why you all hate so much and keep trying to fool them, those nicest Microsoft employees.
They have warned me many times and helped very well and patiently to keep my computer clean.
Only they could never answer my question how they could see that my ZX-Spectrum 48K, not connected to the internet, contained so many wrong things.
I couldn't even thank them for it, they were probably in such a hurry to be of service to someone else, I just heard a click.
