The only way that seems to get any useful reponse these days is to email the gentleman at the top of this forum.

http://www.adobe.com/support/open_letter_to_adobe_customers/

There is a feedback forum which we are told is also monitored by adobe.

I just got helped on the phone with Paulo- they do care- THANK GOD! leave your serial number and info. Alos give them information about what happened to you ie i had someone hang up on me, i suggested the outsource people immediatley give a customer id so they can be held accountable. My product is working now and thank you thank you Paulo- I also posted on illustrator on facebook, i think posting there also might give you help. The management is getting employees from different departments to help clients help- there is a light at the end- happy client once again, truthfully illustrator is the best and i hate to look for another program. Have faith you will be helped. thanks again. teresa vigil - wedding photographer in california.

I can not get past the music to speak to someone. I am back on for more than an hour and it just plays music non stop - not sure how to deal with this.

I can not get past the music to speak to someone.

Ah, the music. Reports have been circulating that the "hold music" is old Ravi Shankar cuts, played at about 120db. Sort of makes one miss "elevator music."

Back when I called (when you were but a pup), I do not recall any hold music, but then a live human, with concern for my satisfaction, picked up the phone so quickly, I dobut I had time to even listen.

I only wish that we could go back to the "good old days," 'cause they WERE the good old days. Once, I ranked Adobe TS up there with WordPerfect, before Novell and Corel, when they were in Orem, UT. They set the bar very high. Sad that the model has faded, almost everywhere.

Good luck, and hope that you can both get through to TS/CS, and can get your issue handled.

Hi there

Did you call the generic helpdesk or was it the Activation center?

Click here to view the Activation Center

Cheers... Rick

To make it easier to get help with activation questions, we’ve recently added a new service where customers can choose to chat live with an Adobe customer service agent to activate their product. This is available from Monday to Friday between 6am – 2pm Pacific time.

To chat with an agent, visit our online Support Portal at http://www.adobe.com/go/supportportal

Once you have signed in with your Adobe ID, go to the “Serial Number” tab and select “Activation”. Click on “Proceed to online form”, and then the chat invite will show up on the next page if an agent is available.

Alternatively, you can go to the Activation Phone number page at http://www.adobe.com/activation/phonenumbers.html

If an agent is available for live chat, you’ll see a pop-up invitation for chat appear shortly after you land on that page.

Did you post to the PS forum? Now, installation problems can be an issue, as most users (the people on that forum) do not have issues.

If you did not, I would suggest that you do so, and please furnish all details. Most installation issues are OE, or an improper setup, or Extraction of the archived downloaded files. If you are having issues with physical DVD's, then the exact details will be useful and highly important.

Good luck,

If you viewed in the "Threaded View," you would have seen that my reply was to this LINK.

Hope that this helps you.

This does not address your concern, and it is a valid one. It is also a concern for too many, in my book. Still, I have found over the decades, that there is much more good, accurate information in the product fora, than from TS. The exceptions are with registration, Activation and licensing issues, as most users do not have a lot of experience with these, and have no way to, for instance, reset your Activations.

Years ago, I had to use Customer Support for a S/N issue. Way back then, it took 5 mins. including hold-time, and the deed was done - perfectly. I was possibly lucky then, and have been fortunate to not have to try lately.

The "open letter," that John mentions points out that Adobe knows that there is a problem. They seem to feel that changes are necessary. I hope that they do address the issues.

In the end, have you tried to solve your problem in the particular product forum? TS seems to have one script, "uninstall - reinstall."

Good luck,

Hunt

There's a facebook site that someone (a user) has set up... That seems to generate pretty quick results... probably because it's out there for the world to see... Don't know it offhand... but try a search here...
