That’s exactly what I did when I had that major problem a year or so ago.


The second person I got finally understood the situation, after a number of hours, and escalated the case to a higher level in their system.


The person I ultimately got to discovered and fixed the issue within a half hour.


But, again, that was many hours, days, and phonecalls later.


This could have been a much more serious issue if I had been working and dealing with this in the work environment where demands on one’s time are great.


I don’t mean to complain or to be negative.  This was just my experience.

I think everyone who has used this service repeatedly has had the same sort of experience every once in a while.  The standard advice, which I follow, is once it becomes apparent that the particular tech you happen to be working with on the issue at hand doesn't know what they're doing, make a quick exit from the call with whatever excuse you care to use.  Then, if so inclined, call back.  You generally end up with a different tech and in many cases they do know what they're doing.
