~rands's review of Xbox customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Xbox customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
~rands: I waited for ** minutes for it to give me the option of MS calling me back. Then, I waited ** minutes for them to call me back. To my chagrin, when they called me back, I was put on hold for another ** minutes. Isn't that why I gave you my number, to avoid waiting on hold? Once I got to a real person, they wouldn't help me. It's my account. I never asked for the 'added protection.' I don't remember password well, why do you think I checked the auto-sign-in feature on the xbox? Suddenly, that's not good enough, like somebody is sitting around my living room, playing my xbox on a daily basis and using my account. You want me to go to an email address I only have because it was the first one I ever got (and it was free)--hotmail. You want me to remember that password even though it has been longer since i have longed into it. I pay good money for xbox live and can't use it and you won't help me recover it. Sorry, sorry support.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Xbox. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Xbox problem?
~rands: I'd give them a four out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
~rands: I'd give them a one out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about Xbox's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~rands: For that I would say five out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Xbox customers?
~rands: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for Xbox to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from ~rands taken from his Xbox customer service problem that occurred on November 23rd, 2017.
