I forgot to mention. I finally broke down and picked up a new cell phone so no more missed calls, lost voicemails or better yet endless minutes where my calls are just sitting in space.
The whole experience of purchasing a phone really is rather unpleasant. I can't help but feel like the cellular companies are all out to rip me off and that you can't trust any of the sales people. You need to pay extra for any sort of warranty these days and it seems almost impossible to buy a phone with out all the bells & whistles they want to upsell you on. No I don't need a camera or an mp3 player built into my phone...I need a phone...and yes I want to get a signal anywhere I go! Ughhh. I certainly didn't leave with a good feeling.
