21brandon21: One thing I think everyone can agree on is that Call Waiting music in NZ is terrible.


I could go one step further and say NZ Music in general is terrible :)

Please don't even get me started on Lorde and how over the fawning about her "talent" that you can't pick up a magazine without reading about, I am.

Jaxar: Copyright laws. Companys have to pay to play you hold music. It is either a limited cheap selection or something not covered by copyright. Unless ofcourse you manage to get some sort of customer base that is willing to pay a small premium for variety in their hold music.
KiwiNZ is right imo. Focus on shorter hold times. Best solution for all and VF has said they are working on it.

Yes, and they said the exact same thing when I was working there back in 2005. What has changed? Not having a dig, but they (ex-TCL anyway) had horrible wait times back then, and it looks like they still do today.

If you go looking for complaints around the interwebs then Yes you will find them for every single business, Take what is written on the Trademe message board with a grain of salt

Dozens of messages on the VF Facebook page complaining about the hold times... I'd say the Trade Me boards aren't too far off the mark at the moment.

Ah geez, flog a dead horse why don't you. VF have publicly admitted they don't have this part of their support working well right now, but are taking steps to rectify it. It takes time, recruitment isn't just a matter of walking down to the university and picking the first 10 people who have correctly tied their shoes laces. Also, those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
