Just to note... I wasn't trying to back up anyone's opinion I just was provoked to reply since I had similar experiences that a company try their hardest not to let you do what you want to do.Monk said:PokeParadox said:I hear you there... it took a lot of "I don't need the phone any more." before the sales guy would accept I needed to end my mobile contract (since I got a second one for a better phone/deal.)BackAssward said:intense_mc said:Any big company wouldn't flame anyone for expressing dissatisfaction of service, especially when it comes to "I'm leaving you" - that's why there are retention and loyalty departments. There shouldn't be this big 'oh piss off then' attitude if someone gives a legitimate reason to cancel. What kind of customer services is that??
I guess you never actually tried to cancel something from a big company. The retention department is exactly that... basically the mafia. They won't let you cancel, no matter what legitimate reason you have, without a half hour of interrogation. They beg, they plead, they offer incentives to stay ("I am canceling cable because I don't have a TV any more" : "but you might have one in 6 months, just stay with us").
That doesn't actually counter intense_mc's point that the big companies don't say "well pith off then", though does it? You've rather backed up his point saying just how far they will go to wheedle or cajole you into staying with them. I don't know how much farther you could get from "well, pith off back where you came from then" than "please stay, don't leave me, I'm all alone in the customer services department!".
They will get it don but not without some hiccups.MisterBrisby said:"We will build them ourselves" ?
Please don't get me wrong and don't feel insulted, but is the OpenPandora-Team actually capable of doing that?
Do you guys have the technical knowledge and abilities of assembling thousands of Pandoras with the same quality as a factory?
I'm interested to, I can do the travel from Paris for a week end and help. I have done a part of my study in electronics and embedded computing, so if I can help (and get my pandora^^)craigix said:

The problem is their moulds only last about 10k pieces before they are damaged. I think they make them from aluminium rather than steel.
