Persistence...
So I let her believe I had an interest right until she actually asked if I was interested in their broadband, TV and phone package.
Never heard the phone get put down quicker after I said 'No' Grin

If you really want to wind them up, wait until they have given you all the bull then ask them if they can offer a static IP address.

She did ask how much I pay for BB and phone so I said £26.47.
She said "That's very specific" and I said "because that's how much it costs" Roll eyes
