  • 94 minutes... My insurance company kept switching me from "a" to "b" and back. So, I decided those b#st*rds were NOT going to outlast me. I wasn't even mad about it. I was surfing the net. When they finally came back, I said, "Hang on a sec, I'm almost done with this level".... That made the rep. mad but she waited. LOL

  • the longest I have been put on hold was 57 hrs. I had a speaker phone and a cell phone so I just put the phone on speaker and nobody ever came back. If I needed to make a call I used my cell phone. It was a 800 number so I didn't worry about the bill going up. I finally just got tired of it and hung up the phone.

  • WOW< Juggalette0327, 57 hours! I thought my 9 hours was outragous. I did get through. Our call was about a 10 dollar er minute call I was charged for for long distance. It was a scam company and a lot of people were up set. This was in the 1990's .
    we have free long distance and refuse to use a pay phone.

  • I have to hang up after an hour or I won't be able to say anything nice. So, 1 hour is my longest for being on hold.
