Last week, my authenticator died. i did a quick search of Ownedcore to see if there was a method of getting into the system faster.
i stumbled upon a year and a half old thread in the news section and decided to try it out.
Called in, selected English, got a message about "longer than normal hold times" then tried the exploit. was speaking with a CS rep INSTANTLY. total time spent on phone was around 2 minutes, including time listening to pre-recorded messages. total time on music hold less than 5 seconds.
What we are trying to do: Bypass the Enter queue and speak to a CS Rep immediately.
Method: Start your call as normal. select your language. Select the type of assistance you require as normal. Wait through any prerecorded messages. once you are truly on music hold, press the following on your telephone keypad: 1111112 (one 6 times, then 2)
This has been tested on the North America Phone System, in English Language.
Further testing may be required for EU phone systems.

I have posted this after receiving confirmation from Ground Zero that it was Acceptable for me to do so.
Cecu had another good, related tip to share, dont rep me for this suggestion, as it is his idea.
