This is the first time I've used IM in a help setting.  I was happy that
I didn't have to wait 55 minutes on the phone just to talk to someone. 
I was a little disappointed that the level of help wasn't much
above a scripted response.   I did get my answer I needed though--when
I switched from turbotax basic to permier, it automatically ignored
the settings where I said I wanted to download a copy.   Instead
of telling me there's no downloads available, it went ahead and
processed the order, silently switching it to shipping/shipped.   This
24 hour delay from their web site to their customer service
stuff is a little odd.   
Please wait while we find an agent to assist you...
