Unhelpful error messages

Under T-mobile website errors were almost a pleasure to get as there was always some humour involved plus a message that at least gave some idea as to what went wrong.
Now with EE I get regular error messages such as below

I stopped using EE when they burned £20 of credit I had on a PAYG. At xmas I had £25 when I next powered it up 4 months later it had £5. I complained and got no where, so refuse to use them anymore.
3 has better costs anyway for payg data.
