Dabs  support  screwed  me once, which was enough to repel. I  will  never
forgive them for that. New PC broke within 4 days (hard-drive failure), it
took  weeks  to  delivers instead of days (although it was said to  be  in
stock) and replacing the unit was again which took a month. Never again.

To  add to this, I also had to make several phonecalls. Ripped me off  for
national rate, but it wasn't BT. *sigh*

BT  and  Dabs will make a great couple, much like eBay who  bought  Skype.
Whatever the complain, the phone will be in sight. Rest assured, the phone
will not stop ringing.

Best wishes,
