I am not kidding. I never thought I could do such a survey without bursting into uncontrollable laughter but I actually spent at least 10 minutes writing about the type of under wear that I use. I felt a little bit strange at first but they managed to skilfully stay on the types of design and material rather than how I like them to fit. Had they started to ask about fit I would have got really uncomfortable and think that I was been watched. Does that make me paranoid?
I also did one survey this morning about my HTC phone and the battery life. It appears that customers have been complaining about the battery life on the new HTC Sensation, saying that it was appalling and I’m afraid that I had to concur. My battery life had reduced to about 4 hours without any use. I was pulling out the hair that I don’t have over this until I found an app that controls the battery usage and I immediately increased battery life by more than 50 times. I think that smartphones often have so many apps running at the same time that the battery gets overwhelmed and it just shows that HTC customer service does respond to complaints by using surveys to gauge the attitude of users towards their devices.
International calling cards cropped up in a survey I completed a few days ago and this would have been the first time I had ever been asked a question about my international calling. I was asked if I use a calling card to call abroad for international numbers and which card I used. I was a little surprised because I didn’t realise that there was that much interest in calling cards and most of the calling cards that was listed are only found in areas where there are specific immigrant communities. I suppose that the immigrant communities must provide a sizable amount of revenue for telecoms companies as they have to keep in touch with home on a regular basis. I was asked that if a one of the major mobile networks offered international calls to my chosen destination for the same price as a local call would I switch networks. I would actually consider t if they allowed me to call one international number as part of my free minutes. So, telecom companies, if you’re reading this blog, make it happen.
Coincidentally, I was recently asked in a survey if I would ever consider travelling on a holiday by standby to save money. Well, I just did this over the Christmas period. The only problem was that I couldn’t get back on the date I wanted because the flights were so full and I was forced to stay an extra six weeks by the beach. Life is so unfair.
Anyway, until next week, be good.
