I just called to get an authorization return number for the jitterbug phone and to cancel my account. The first person I talked to was extremely pleasant and understanding, but had to get another person to handle the return. The return gal was absolutely the most arrogant and unpleasant person I've talked to in a long time. I did find out the reason they no longer have a Samsung jitterbug is because Samsung quit making flip phones. All of you who read my blog and have told me you use a flip phone should just protect your phone at all costs. If you need a new one you will never get the same kind again. What a shame!
Yesterday my son Steve took me to an ATT store nearby and we selected an Android phone - I think I have that correctly, and at any rate it is not an iPhone. I just dropped the damn thing trying to see if it is a Samsung, but I'm almost sure it is. It's going to take me a long time to get used to it, and it's a good thing I rarely use a phone. Now I have to make sure I ALWAYS keep it where the Destroyer can't reach it. Only yesterday, just hours after I brought it home, I caught him chewing the box it came in.
The rain has been heavy and constant until just a few hours ago, so I got a quick walk in. I think I might go out again before it starts back up.
So that's my news for today - I have to say that I just don't understand the attraction of this phone, although I suppose when you get used to it you can no longer do without it. To me, it is too big to carry around or to put into a pocket but people do, and I might end up like everyone else.
That is all I have to say right now, so cherish your flip phone if that is what you love and use, because there are few of them left!
