Definitely not likewise,   in around 2003, when other registrars started
to become more general, and extremely much cheaper than  network
solutions, my original domain was about 3 months from expiry, I made
sure all of my details were up to date, then in a few weeks before
expiry I went to move to another registrar, this kept failing, the
reason, was that NS "Acceptance" of my up to date details 3 months
prior, did not record, be it a form screw-up, or a DB failure causing a
backup restoration, I'm not to know why, and  they certainly did not,
and could not be bothered looking into why, therefore any attempts to
get them to fix it, including days of emails, and several lengthy
international phone calls, ended up with one same result every time,
them demanding I renew with them before they fixed it.

This was not a once of response, hence my many support tickets, emails,
and phone calls, in the end I refused to bow down to their criminal
extortion and immoral practices and just let that domain go and
commenced this one with my 75% cheaper registrar, who,  in the very few
times I've ever had to contact them (general inquiries - never a fault),
have always bent over backwards to help you, and, replies usually within
an hour, not days like they used to be.

Hehe, I understand your pain.
