Thanks for the info. If you go to the site at the bottom of the message, it will direct you to a form to fill out.

You put your model and serial numbers in there along with name/addy/phone - and you can SCHEDULE YOUR FREE APPT ONLINE.

Mine's getting fixed this Friday morning.

What I'm getting at is that if you fill out the form - there's no reason to pick up the phone at all.

When you input your model/serial numbers in the form - it checks those numbers and tells you if you need service or not - it's not just a dummy form with no logic.
