If you know the tune to the Beach Boys “Help Me Rhonda”, sing it with me now….”Help Verizon, help, help Verizon…Help Verizon, help, help Verizon, help Verizon yeah, help get a new phone” OK, here’s what’s happened….I have lost my cellie. My little LG, that Ii should taken in over the holidays because the camera wasn’t working, is now MIA. Since Tuesday. Not good. I innocently traveled to the Verizon store in Towson yesterday, to check on getting a new one. After explaining my situation, the phone I want will cost $450!! I stared at him open mouthed, he stared back somewhat sympathetically…”Yeah, I know…you might want to check around to see if you can find a used phone onEbay, or maybe someone has a Verizon phone they’re not using you can buy from them.” (OH, and he also wanted the last 4 digits to my social security number to get into my account….no way baby…and he was able to get in without that, just so you know…)
Here are my phone requirements….not too much really. It has to work well, and have at least a 2 mega-pixel camera…..I use it all the time for this blog. And I need a larger screen, like the LG had or the Dare does,(all the better to see it with)…and well…that’s about it. My big mistake, and I realize this now…is that I didn’t buy insurance on my phone. That’s $3.99 a month seems pretty cheap…now that I need it. But I’m so lost without my cell phone….something has to give. Today. Any ideas????
One good thing….my brilliant daughter backed up my contact list at Verizon online, so I won’t have to recreate it now….one big plus…so I owe her!!
