My dad lost his phone the other day. In a mix of helpfulness and greed, I offered him my phone as a replacement so that I could inherit my wife's Razr that she no longer needed since she just upgraded to the Blackjack II. I know that the Razr isn't exactly famous for being much good, but it does look kind of sexy and my wife had never had any issues with it at all.
So I give my dad my working phone, my SIM card into the Razr and I'm good to go. Within one day of owning it, it just stops working. Just like that. It shuts down for no reason that I can tell. Great. Now I have no phone and I'm early enough into my latest contract that I can't get any deals on upgrades anywhere. Now I have no phone. We went to the AT&T store last night but everything was way expensive. (I kind of liked the LG Shine, but no matter.)
For how long will I have no phone? It's hard to say, but it's going to be tough with our car situation. I depend on the kindness of coworkers for rides to and from work and now we can't coordinate easily. However, there is a small ray of hope. My wife, in the several months that she owned the Razr, never turned it off. She'd charge it nightly, but she never shut it off allowing for a full battery charge. So there's a possibility that it's just a battery issue. The AT&T store was out of batteries last night but we might check Batteries Plus on Nolensville Rd. tomorrow.
If that fails, I guess I could ask my dad for my phone back and let him solve his own lost phone issue. Heck, he might have even been eligible for a free upgrade in the first place. But I felt like such a nice guy giving him mine. So much for that. I should have just given him the sexy Razr.
Good times as always. Anyway, here's "No Phone" by Cake. If for the title alone, it just seems appropriate.
