Phone Me

For Christmas Studly Doright bought me a new iPhone. According to him it’s the biggest, baddest iPhone available. I’m properly humbled and intimidated.

In my typically stubborn way I dove into setting up the new phone, heedless of Studly’s advice to let someone at the Verizon store assist me. “They said it’ll be easy!” Studly assured me. “Just switch out the memory cards and you’re good to go.”

It was not easy. I’ve lost all my contacts and have had to download all of my apps and remember the passwords and try to recall user names until I’m ready to scream. Plus, the navigation between pages is totally different. And all my contacts are screwed up. Argh!

It literally took me an hour to figure out how to get from the home page to my app icons. If you don’t hear from me again, it’s because I’ve been admitted to a psych ward–preferably one where no electronic devices are allowed.

Peace on earth and all that jazz.

  1. I bought for everyone in the family small pocket-sized password log books. A slightly larger one for my parents. You use pencil to add the info and in the notes section you put the date you created that password and when you change it (because they say you have to every so often) you erase that date and put the new one.

    It works and you can carry it with you in your purse. 🙂

    Also, that customer service sucked. They should have not let you leave till you were set up properly.

    Good luck. 🙂

  2. When I do a big upgrade, I let the pros at the store do it. I went from a 6S to an 10R in June. They had me do most of it but they guided me while doing it at the store. Took an hour but one well spent. Now I’m ready for the 11. Think I have to wait. Ugh!
