This is my phone. It's a wanna be iPhone. I hate this phone. Seriously. I got my first one the beginning of August, and it wasn't working right. I can't really remember what it was doing but I do remember that once it started ringing and wouldn't stop! It wouldn't let me answer, turn it off, nothing. I took it back and they gave me another one. Thank God.
Fortunately that one seemed to work ok except for the fact that they put the stupid mute button right where your cheek hits. On a touch screen phone. SO when you cradle the phone on your shoulder, it mutes your caller. Not really ideal for a multi-tasking mama! I'm taking it that the genius who designed it didn't have kids.
Slowly I got to like the features of my phone. They have a cool live search thing where it locates you with a GPS and then you can say something like "pizza" and it will show you every pizza place close by. They also have a movie app where you can look up the theaters near you and get movie names and times and even the plot if you wish. There's a weather app where you can see a weather forecast anywhere in the world. Then of course there is email and web and music and tons of other stuff.
Just as it was raking me in, a few days ago my phone went nuts. Completely nuts. I will be talking on the phone and it will go to a dial tone. It doesn't hang up though because the other people can still hear me. If I'm sending a text message it starts putting in random letters or just deleting what I wrote completely. I can only call people in my call history, can't answer incoming calls most of the time, don't get most of my incoming text messages and can't access my voice mail. My email works occasionally but will delete emails at random, and it usually jumps to other screens. The weather, movie and live search functions? Forget about it! GRRR
SO the other day we took my phone into the Sprint store who told me I had to go to a different Sprint store to see a tech. The tech did a system update and said that should fix it but if it didn't to bring it back to ANY store to have it replaced. It didn't work so this afternoon we went to the first Sprint store who told me I had to call the insurance people about it and they would mail me a new one. The insurance people told me that they only replace it if it's been damaged; for a malfunction we have to take it to the Sprint store. Seriously.
SO sometime tomorrow I will go BACK to the Sprint store and beg for a new phone. I have such a love/hate relationship with technology! Sprint is SO getting fired after my contract expires. I can almost see me talking on my REAL iPhone!
