Why is this a good ticket?
The above example is a good ticket because it includes all of the key information about the issue. Device, error, when it was last working, if the issue is recurring, personal details.
If you include all of these details we will be able to resolve your issue much faster.
You can also call us and we will create the support ticket for you, but please be aware that this does extend the ticket triage and resolution process.
