    Default PB Tech

    So ordered a new phone as mine is playing up, SWMBO collected the parcel at lunchtime. I opened it at home and inside no phone but a copy of Office 2016.

    Oh Dear -- Guess they got the orders mixed, hope no one was wanting their Office 2016 urgently, may be a bit hard to install a phone into a Laptop or PC

    Haha bit of a stitch up there. They are generally very good - we order from them nearly every day and I can't remember the last time there was a mix up. They do deal with a massive amount of stock.

    Please let us know if PBT handle & resolve this quickly, or if they make you jump through hoops to get your phone .

    I hear plenty of good & bad stories about their after sales service

    Have heard nothing so far today, SWMBO is dealing with it, I almost feel sorry for them. My current phone is totally crapped out and unusable hence the need for a new one urgently. However its nice the boss not being able to ring me.

    I've heard of diversification, but this one's ridiculous. What a disaster if NZ Post or NZ Couriers et al follow PBT's ground breaking lead.

    Office 2016?? not only the wrong goods, but amazingly slow to get to the wrong person. Was Swiss Post involved here? Possibly the multiple holiday periods and parties held it up a bit (Xmas 2016, 2017, 2018, New Year 2016, . . . . )
    Once the updates and bug (fixes{?}) start arriving, your porch is going to need some serious acreage.
