Well my previous phone Cingular 2125 died on me over the weekend. I was without a phone for a few days. What a horrible thing. You realize how dependent you are on a cell phone when it is your only means of communication. I travel from client to client frequently with my job and my office phone goes days on end without me ever talking on it. I also work from home and my cell phone is the only consistent thing I have for my job.
Over the weekend my phone decided to not pick up the network (Att) even when it had a full signal (5 bars). On Monday I called ATT for some help, after a few tests the TEch told me that it was probably an issue with an antenna. Even though I had full signal strength. Even though I did not believe him I tried a few other tricks. Put another sim card in my phone and it had the same results. I was then able to put my sim card in an older phone and have all my contact info and at least make calls. So I chalked it up as a dead phone. Since it was over a year old there was no warranty. Att was very nice in saying that I could get a new one with a new 2 year plan if that was what I wanted to do.
So I just signed my life away again to Att and now have a Blackjack (Blackjack). I will post after I have had the thing more than 24 hours. So far it is a nice phone. I do miss having my small candy bar style phone.
