The day I decided to go to the store and use my Christmas bonus gift card and buy a new one, I not only took the wrong gift card, but my radiator cracked! But, I replaced the radiator, missed that month's art guild meeting and finally purchased a new cell phone (after having to go back home for the right gift card). The day I tried to swap phones, their computer kept coming up with a non-specified error- call back in 3 hours. After calling them back 3 times, they put in a trouble ticket and said call back in 24 to 72 hours. I called them 2 days later and they said do this and I did that and it finally swapped just fine.
That old phone was a good friend, but the battery would no longer hold a charge for more than a 5 minute call, and then power down - even with the charger plugged in. It was useful to get me out of being stuck somewhere, calling work when I would once in a great while gonna be late, keeping in touch with friends.But it became so handicapped, it had to be retired. My new cell phone was only 25$ and even know it is a very basic phone, I can locate myself on Google maps and get directions. Which is good since I suck at navigation.
