the customer service personal I have been dealing with to get my account unblocked have been the worse I have had to deal with, rude, liars, cuss, etc. how they keep their jobs is beyond me. the female who answered the phone in WA even told me to F*** off, now employees there.
Thankfully I do have the names of almost all who I spoke with and will be writing a letter to HR at the corporate office. Not that I think anything will transpire, but at least my voice is being heard
Please offer same incentives for you products in and around the world here in the USA. My issue is not getting 12 month gold card with purches of office 365 university ed. I was directed by YOUR BING search eng. to what turned out to be a UK office site with this offer and noticed CANADA was also included in this offer. I was not even offered a 3 moth gold card for pointing out issue, which your tech. even stated that in the address bar eg came up when it sould be uk. I also noticed other sites saying you were giving this program away in other countries for free? I have payed a premium for your games, cards for xbox, programs etc...I am very upset with this particular issue and consider bringing it to attention of BETTER BUSSNIS bureau and media outlets .

I had the misfortune to have buy a new laptop. This came with Windows 8 (W8). I did not buy a mobile phone. So why is W8 designed for mobile phones but installed on a computer? W8 is rubbish.
The so-called charms are anything but. They appear at anytime except when I need them.
Why did the idiots who miss-designed this abomination needed to put everything in different places. The Start screen is not the same as the old start button. It was much easier to start something under the old system.
Windows 8 is supposed to be more stable. Absolute bat crap. Virtually all of the apps etc stop responding soon after they start. It is particularly annoying because it takes several attempts to start anything the first place. The Power button works less than 20% of the time and even then it might not shut down the computer. It turns of the screen and then stops. I have to remove the battery to shut down the computer!
And why if I want to start something I have to go to the search "charm" and type the name of damn program into it. Why? What dickhead decided that that would a good idea and why hasn't he been sacked?
Furthermore, if I have a page displayed that has a vertical scroll bar, it move up and down randomly. It is incredibly difficult to put the scroll bar in the place I want it to be and have it remain there. Likewise why I do want the size of the page zooming in and out if I go anywhere near my mouse pad? The mouse pointer jumps randomly around which means if I am typing something, often I will find I am typing in the middle of what I have written before. Well done Windows 8 for being so effing annoying.It must have taken hundreds of man hours to make sure this 'feature' works properly.
One final point. How much did all those other companies pay Microsoft to have their mobile phone apps added to W8?
I've been on the phone over one and one half hours trying to get Customer Support. The Customer Support for your products is beyond deplorable. You have chosen to transfer these jobs to people in other countries. The result is an extremely poor phone connection and unbelievable difficulties in understanding what they are saying. I have nothing against other cultures but the quality of assistance is terrible. I have spoken to 8 people so far and have been cut off and had to start all over again. Each time I have to explain everything all over again to each person. No one documents anything on my account. I have a new laptop with Windows 8. I had to buy the software separately so purchased and installed Home and Business 2013 a couple months ago. Now I need Access 2013. I purchased it two days ago through Amazon and when I went to your website to download it, it said it had problems. I was busy and decided to wait a couple days. I backed up my system last night and had a few minutes this afternoon and tried to load the Access 2013 again. Well it wiped out ALL of my software and everything else. I can't even get a date and time on the bottom of my screen. All I have is internet access. I HAVE WORK I HAVE TO GET DONE TONIGHT!! I've been on hold for help reinstalling my Office 2013 Home and Business 40 minutes so far this time. They have to call me tomorrow from the "Access" department to help me install that because they put me in a queu. I heard from other people that they tried to load Access and it wiped everything out. That's why I tried to do everything right. Microsoft - you should be able to do better than this!! You should be ashamed. This is HORRIBLE service! Your products are not Cheap and you should at least provide adequate service. You really are making me want to buy an Apple next time. All of my Apple friends are happy and don't go through this. They can not believe how you treat your customers.
I'm now a WORD-7 user. It appears you have changed your Picture Engine so many of my picture (Jpeg, etc.) do not print, preview or convert to PDF. PDF is required by my publisher.
The book I'm trying to get ready has many pictures and so have spent much time resizing, etc. with WORD and with paintshop pro to get a .jpg picture that will print. Here is one example:
Sorry, but it won't even copy to this review packet!!!
Please contact me at the email address orphone number, below.
Finally, Why are you sending your tech services, abroad? I can hardly understand the dialectically impaired speech most of your "Service" Reps use. Bill Gates, You and your organization are a dissappointment to me. I'm an old man raised in Index, WA. There you were known by your word, so that defective anything was replaced, ASAP. I guess since you pirated your MSDOS from IBM you have gone the way of the god of this world. Your "experts" from India and the Phillipeans have cost our school a lot of money and several months of my time. I pity Ya'll.

Since when do YOU decide that everyone in the world wants to change THEIR FONT to
“TACOMA 10” (default) I now MUST GO BACK TO ALL THE DOCUMENTS THAT I EVER TYPED AND
RECREATE MY WHOLE DOCUMENT LIBRARY TO THE ORIGINAL FONT THAT I CAN READ.
This is MY “PERSONAL COMPUTER” I would like to think that YOU would realize that, when some STUPID PROGRAMER DEFAULTED ALL COMPUTERS TO HIS/HER WAY OF THINKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you going to go to all the libraries in the world and “REPRINT ALL THE BOOKS” ( is that next)
I WOULD LIKE TO SET MY DEFAULT TO THE ORIGINAL FONT (ARIAL 10) This used to be my
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHY IN GODS NAME DID YOU DECIDE ON
“A FONT THAT I CANNOT READ”
If this sounds like an insult to your intelligence---THEN IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If YOU can change MY computers default, “WHY CAN’T I”
I have heard so many complaints about this, I wonder if you have the ability to “listen”
How would you like it if I wrote this letter in “Bickley Script, would YOU be happy”
After spending most of the day on hold between the Microsoft Store and the MarketPlace I still can't get a refund of $108.24 because the MarketPlace can see the charge but the MS Store can't see the charge for a product I did not get due to a computer time out on th MS website. I sincerely hope this is not practice that corporate condones. I don't understand how the different department computers can't communicate or see the same information. I can see the charge on my MSN account. This is MicroSoft you would think their customer service would be a little more updated.
