    I prefer a live person to talk to. If I wanted tunes or an ad I'd listen to the radio station of MY choice.

    Muzak is fine, but I HATE when I'm hanging out on hold & the music stops every 10 seconds so I can hear a recording that tells me that my call will be answered by the next available operator....no kidding.

    I think it's good to go with nothing... I hate being put on hold and having to listen to crappy music. Usually when I'm on hold I try to do work, it's very hard to do that with crappy music or stupid messages blasting in your ear. You will never be able to please everyone, so nothing is better as far as I'm concerned (we just had this discussion at work as we're getting a new phone system!)

    I'll go with A for now but if you don't come back on the line within two minutes I'll hang up and consider a new company to deal with.
