Why make us listen to horrible hold music. Silence would be better.

Because if there was silence people would think the call had been disconnected.

A simple message occasionally would fix that.

I'm wondering, did you get the reason for your call resolved?

Yep, no issues with customer service. They were great. The hold music was just very bad.

I had occasion to call them today and found the option to receive a CALL-BACK very handy - no music on hold. Brilliant system!

That is what I did, though I don't mind waiting if the hold music is bearable.

Thanks for the laugh.  All kinds of things pop up on the board, but this is a first for the music.  I wouldn't mind some 70's hits for on hold.  Nothing like some Cat Stevens to calm the nerves... Year of the cat baby...

Plenty of great 70s music. Just keep the Cat off the playlist.

Long way home?  Bet you don't like Supertramp as well.  You are a 70's hater!

The 70’s was a great decade. To be born. :-P

Disappointed with the unnecessarily hateful, unkind comments. I was taught, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." For that I am grateful because it makes me happy, and happy people are healthy people.

No idea what you are referring to.  You must have misunderstood something.  Nothing but help and good fun that I see .

Yeah, J.G. Your comment is really out of left field. I don't see anything even beginning to approach unkind, let alone hateful. Unless you really dislike '70s music.
