Blind 86 year old trying to report a fault???

I am now officially frustrated withBT

My mother is 86 years old, very frail, blind, mostly housebound and has only a BT landline.

I have tried for 2 days, 30 mins each time to get through to someone to report this fault.

The fault tracker shows the system has logged a call.

Given her circumstances, how long will she be expected to wait.

Anyone?

Re: Blind 86 year old trying to report a fault???

if you were able to report a phone fault and said your mother was an elderly vulnerable customer you should have received priority fix

is you mother a BT Retail customer as many refer to their phone as BT but in fact have a different ISP

Thankyou Distinguished Sage...
I have not been able to speak to any human regarding my mothers faulty phone.
"Tracking a fault "seems to have recorded one of the many times I have tried to ring, but I don't consider that satisfactory. She does not have ISP....

assuming your mother is a BT Retail customer I have asked the forum mods to help as they are BT employees. They will post her
