*UPDATE my cell decided to unfreeze, of course I wouldn’t stop checking it like a crazy OCD person! It probably will happen again so I have the back up cell all programmed in my purse. It is so easy to activate a cell nowadays*
Oh what a night I had when my 17 month old cell went kapooie!!! I was having some freezing issue and then it just finally froze up and all I could do was use the phone part of it only! Verizon really couldn’t help me on the phone since I couldn’t navigate the phone to do anything except dial. So I begged them to let me get an early upgrade since I am due one in August and my plan was to get a iPhone 4S for a big discount $199 instead of at full price at $749, they just would not bend on that. They told me the earliest I could get the upgrade would be in July. So I called the kids house frantic to see if they still had their Blackberry phones? Paul’s was not working but Lisa’s was, it was a little scratched up but it worked. So I activated it for now! I am not wild about the camera it has some kind of lines going thru the viewer and it has those same lines on the pictures you take, she thinks she may of dropped it at one point and did that. I was able to get all my pictures, contacts and apps back. Facebook for some reason will not let me use their “check in” feature on this phone, something is wrong with the GPS but I can live with all of these issues until July I am sure. Hey! I didn’t have to spend a penny. The deductable if you have their insurance is $50, no way am I throwing $50 away to get a refurbished cell for just a few months. So I will suck it up and be happy I have a cell to use. I am going to just for the heck of it swing by Verizon over the weekend and show them the frozen cell and see if they can do anything and if not have them take a look at the one I am using to see if they can figure the GPS thingy out. The camera part I am sure is something internal. The phone was thrown in a drawer for the last 4 years. Lisa had a Thunderbolt since this phone, now the whole family have iPhones. Once I get mine we will be a iPhone family. Even Chris Lisa’s Mom got one last month.
Another working weekend of course. Joe and I have a comedy show on Sunday at the UCB Theater at 9:30. Have a great weekend.
