Please just send me an appointment to install the line

I've received an email asking me to ring you to make a second installation appointment.  I just want you to send me the first available one, like you did for the first appointment.

I have a strong aversion to ringing people I don't know, especially call centers, and an even stronger aversion to being rung by people I don't know.  I see no reason for you to insist on me ringing you, when I didn't need to for the first appointment.

Yesterday was the day of my first appointment.  An engineer arrived, looked around, then announced I didn't have a BT line and that he couldn't fit one - there would have to be a flat roof team sent out.  Today, I got the email saying you'd ring me (please DO NOT) or I could ring you, to book the next appointment.

Just make one for me, asap, and email me with the details, like before.  Don't make me jump through hoops to get you to do what we already agreed you were going to do.

I assume it's okay to give the email reference, since it means nothing to anyone else:

Email ref: E0702

Re: Please just send me an appointment to install the line

I was sent an email to say my new installation appointment will be 15/8/2023, AM., which is next week (Email ref: E0701).

Could someone check that they know to send out a "flat roof" team to install the line to my flat, please, as the last installer who visited said they'd need to?

It occurred to me that there might be a failure of communication and they might send someone else who isn't able to install it, over a flat roof.

Hi @FedUpAlready I've added notes to the order about that for you to make sure there's no delay getting things set up for you on the 15th. - Adam

Re: Please just send me an appointment to install the line

Hi Adam,

 

It went fine, but the young woman who installed it hadn't been told about the flat roof.  As it turned out, she could connect it to the line to the flat above mine, which the first installer has said wasn't possible.

 

A couple of questions though.  I had an email about automatic compensation, due to the delay, but it didn't make it clear whether I'd get any, or how much.  Am I likely to?  If so, what would that look like - just a negative account balance?

 

Also, logging into my account, I found details for my phone line which say:

Credit limit £55.00
Credit used £0.00
Credit remaining £55.00

 

I can't find any explanation of what that means.  Is that per billing period, or do I hit a problem once I've made that many calls?

That's a shame that the notes we added didn't get acknowledged but I'm really glad the service is up and running for you now. 

 

Yes any compensation is credited against the account balance. 

 

As I need to cover off a few bits of account specific information I've updated a ticket on your account about that here: https://www.plus.net/wizard/?p=view_question&id=236070835

 

Re the phone credit you mentioned that's in place as a cap to any spending on chargeable calls and it resets when we generate a bill each month.

Re: Please just send me an appointment to install the line

Hi Adam,

It's now a couple of days past the 30 days you mentioned, but the automatic compensation hasn't yet reached my account.  Is that normal?

I've just received notification of a bill for £25.49, which I wasn't expecting because I thought the balance of my account would cover it for a while.  My account balance shows as £0.

I'm now wondering if something went wrong with paying it into my account, because "within 30 days" seems like enough time to get that done.
