    Hey @PookCanada, I sent this tweet, a message on FB messenger and emailed. Can I please get some help?

    Sorry to report that our website & email are still down at the moment. We're hoping that @enom @enomsupport are able to fix the issues they are having soon. We will give you more updates as we know more. If you have any questions please contact us here or via Facebook messenger.

    This pointless dependency on sim and phone being always online is the biggest drawback of whatsapp and it fries my mind as to why people put up with this ****. Why can't it be like facebook messenger or skype? if one device is down, you can easily continue from another.

  • Carol_Frazer Carol Frazer (@Carol_Frazer) reported

    @sainsburys typically every time I want to use my nectar points online then there is a technical issue and I can’t unless I go to the site defeating the purpose of online ordering. Your Facebook messenger assist aren’t helpful either.

    @BreakfastVC @SpecificTest @lockheimer If millions of people (specifically the ones without a default RCS messaging app installed) have no problem installing a 3rd party app like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, etc then it shouldn't be hard for them to install an app such as Google Messages.

    Is anyone else having issues with Facebook Messenger where your stickers won't load and once you access that, your messages don't get sent so you have to clear cache and relaunch the app to send messages again???

  • mandy04943435 galloping crazy (@mandy04943435) reported

    @AfibWithRiver This can come in many forms. For those i felt close enough to, and it wasn’t a safety issue- I’ve sent messages on Facebook messenger. Some coworkers have gone to wakes. Otherwise, just a pause, a moment to reflect is pretty darn powerful.


    Down horrendous just replied to a man via Facebook messenger

    @clhubes I had someone arrive completely at random in the middle of the day and call me via FB Messenger four times while frantically texting that they were here now for the thing. I brought it down and they took it with no eye contact and ran away.

    @HouseofHelpers right guys, need a swift resolve of my issue. You guys are a disgrace. I contacted your team via Facebook messenger on Wednesday, it’s now Saturday and all I’ve had is a few pleasantries exchanged. Let’s get this resolved today please!

  • eral375 Earl Cook (@eral375) reported

    I was advised by their Facebook Messenger account to submit a Support Ticket to find out what is going on with my RMA. I understand that things have been chaotic for everyone but the design of their system does not appear to intend to provide any help with products.

  • millar_sheila Sheila M 🇬🇧🇪🇺 (@millar_sheila) reported

    Been waiting for a response via Facebook Messenger to my query re whether Day 2 LFT purchased in November can still be used, now time critical and I’m still awaiting an answer having given additional info 2 days ago. Awful service.

    @RiotGrlErin What about Facebook messenger? As soon as you hang up they start acting like a thirsty assed one night stand "was it good for you?" Like calm down boo, I'll let you know if the call quality was good or not...
