Cell phone blues.

Posted Thu Jul 21, 2005, 05:17 AM by Tracy | |

Technology can be a bitch sometimes. A spiteful capricious little bitch.

I turned on my cell phone yesterday and it intuned the power-on jingle then shut itself off. Turned it on again. Same worthless musical ort and I am greeted with the default screen image.

I press the search button only to find no entries. Wha??? Apparently my phone went on hiatus and wiped itself completely out. I have no idea how this happened. I hadn’t changed batteries, dropped it or otherwise disturbed its little electronic pea brain.

Now I have to replace everyone’s numbers. So maybe you could call my cell sometime so I can capture the number?

  1. I don't know who your carrier is, but when I got a new phone from T-mobile I had to re-enter all my information again. The customer service guy told me a trick: at the t-mobile website you can type in all the information in a form and then have it sent directly to your phone. Much easier than trying to punch all that information into the phone. Of course, this is only useful if you have hard copies of all the numbers! I bet other carriers have this feature on their website. :)
