Swear at Automated Tech Support, Connect Straight to Human

Added on by TEK.GADG.

You know those automated tech support lines, the ones that make you answer too many questions before connecting you to the right department? Yeah, I hate those too.

Redditer floppybutton found an interesting method of skipping those steps in Apple's support line to connect to a human right away. Basically, you just drop a few F-bombs at the innocent robot on the other side of the conversation. Upon detection of that rage-filled word, Apple's automated line will connect the user right away to a human representative.

Best tip ever.

For other support lines you should use gethuman.com for customer service numbers that connect to humans.
