Subject: Regarding Phone in App ###.

Dear Mr.XYZ,

I live in Appt ###. We have a problem with our telephone. We are NOT able to make any calls inside the apartment (i.e. we are not able call any other room numbers) and even people in the apartment are not able to call our room. we know this - we can't change the technic ! But we are able to make phone call outside the apartment (0 dial). Would it be possible for you to look into this sorry, no solution possible

Have a nice day


Note: Name and Email Id info are changed here obviously.

But what we really appreciate is atleast we got the reply. Wonder if they reply mails like this including their comments on the same mail we write, for avoiding using long English sentences. We are also thankful in a way that problem is only with calling inside the apartment and we are able to call our folks back home. Our neighbours have to knock our doors now to speak to us.
