Why write me a response back at all?

I wrote this email to Samsung technical support a few days ago:

SUBJECT: Need Hayes commands (AT commands) for phone

Hi —

I own a Samsung A707 phone with AT&T service.

I can make a serial port connection to my phone via bluetooth. However, it seems like my phone doesn’t understand most AT commands.

Is there a list anywhere with all the AT commands that this phone supports?

Thanks for the help.

Matt

And here’s the reply I got back:

WOW. Is Renee a chatbot or did a real human being actually spend time writing this response? I especially like that they link to the tech support section of the website. This is where I sent the email in.

Fortunately for me, the people on the gnokii mailing list are helping me out.
