I had a lesson in patience today. Yesterday at work, my cell phone went out. I was miserable. I got to thinking, how did we get along and survive without cell phones? I make the joke if I had a cell phone and facebook in high school, my Mom would still be kicking my butt today because my usage Thank God we didn't, probably wouldn't of graduated. Well it made for a long shift without checking emails. blogs and keeping contact with the outside world. I immediately decided I was going to Walmart and pick up a new one and switch things over. This time I was going to get insurance too.
Bought the phone, charged it up overnight, jumped up this morning and began the task to switching things over. Got that done, then I started looking at my other phone that went on the blink yesterday. I only had it for about 120 days and its foolish, simply foolish for me to waste money. I began rummaging around for my receipt and found out I was passed the return date. I poked around and found a customer service number for Samsung and placed a call to them. I was pleasantly surprised. The operator took my information and walked me through a reboot process after I described my dilemma. It seems my system was frozen during its update yesterday and I had to reboot the entire system for the update. He was cordial, polite and very patience with me during this process. Needless to say, my old phone is performing like an champ and now I have the task of returning the new one and updating my old data. I think this time I will buy a larger sd card for memory and just put the apps on there I use mostly when I am away from my computer. One thing I learned from this little ordeal is patience, don't be so quick to jump the gun. Also I learned to use only Samsung adaptors only, don't try to configure an ATT one for this phone, it may cause further damage.
Patience is the virtue I continuously pray for
