Like I need one more thing to do before I leave on this trip next week.
I upgraded my cell phone so I could have international calling. It arrived a few days ago and I finally had time on Saturday to activate the phone and get it set up.
Transferred all my contacts, get my calendar moved etc.
One big problem.
The phone vibrates, it talks, the alarm works, it makes all sorts of cute little noises, but the damn thing won't ring when a call comes in! WHUH?
That's right. IT WON'T RING. Not any type of noise. It blinks at me, it will vibrate, when I miss a call, it beeps at me. If someone leaves a voice mail, it beeps at me. If I get a text message, it makes that cute little noise. But the damn thing WON'T RING.
And if I hook up my headset, it won't even vibrate. So I have no idea if a call is coming in unless I am looking at the damn phone. This is my business phone. Unacceptable.
Yep, I love this new gadget. My friends all call me iPod stupid cuz it took me months to figure out my iPod. Everytime I would sync it, it would be blank! LMOA...figured that one out. Finally.
So, on my way home today, I stop by Verizon and hand the phone to the tech guy. He says how may I help you. I said, make it ring. WHUH? Make it ring. So he tests the call sounds, they all work. Yeah, they do. Make it ring. He calls the phone. Silence. He gets one of the other techs to look at it. They both look at the phone. They can't make it ring. They ask me what I did. WHAT *I* did? It hasn't rung since I activated it on Saturday. You make it ring. This thing has more bells and whistles than a dixie clipper, you make it ring. It talks, it vibrates, the alarms work, but it won't ring. Fix it.
They can't. Verizon is overnight shipping me a new phone. Arrives tomorrow.
Maybe I will just stick with my old phone. It rings.
