Call from a mobile and use the callback feature, You don't lose your place in the que and when at the front your mobile will ring 0800 438 448,

If it's not difficult then ask here on Geekzone or the Vodafone NZ community or can you do it online in ' My Account '

Sometimes callback is offered but sometimes not IME. It does work very well however.

Really? We use it where I work and it runs perfectly fine off both Landline and Mobile Caller ID's (using Zeacom)

The call back feature seem like a bit of stopgap measure, it's not really fixing the problem, it's just delaying dealing with it.

When I have to ring I'm ready at that point in time to make any changes/checks at my end, I'm in front of my PC. with the callback I most likely will not be infront of my PC.

I think that actually been able to talk to a CSR in a timely manor is what counts.

If its withheld or alike it usually shows the exchange phone number, If its a transfer it will show the number from the switch board, If they call from work usually it will get another IVR. Mobiles are the easiest.

We introduced 35 staff or there abouts 2 weeks ago.
From 11AM-4PM there is a wait under 10 minutes if not none at all for technical assistance.
If you call at a peak time expect a wait. Given every man and his dog are calling. If you call during billing week expect a wait when trying to speak with customer care.

11-4pm is not when working people can call due to a thing called work. Why is there not more emphasis on 4-8pm? I know that business is important but when you have residential paying you $250+ every month id suggest you make those people a priority also.

Most of our staff are on to 8PM. Its just lots of people call. The issues with our call volumes as they are repeat calls about the same thing or people calling us for everything (Unsupported issues).

Having just moved over from Telecom, I can honestly say that VF's service is far superior, and the staff much better to deal with IME.
