Wow! What a week and am I ever glad that it is over!!! My cell phone died - as in the white screen of death. So I had to take 3 steps back and use an ancient phone until my new one arrived - which was Thursday night. The bad part of my dead phone was that my son gave me a mini memory card, but since I didn't know how to use it, I just carried it around in the phone - empty. So now, all of my photos and my ringtones are gone. I miss my ringtones the most!
The phone that I had was ok, but very, very basic. It was extremely hard to text with it - well, hard for me because things like the space key was on a different button. So texting took twice as long - and for me texting when I know what I'm doing takes a long time!
Also, all of my phone numbers were saved on the dead phone, but backed up online. However, the phone I was using couldn't access my online backup. (So if I was supposed to call you and didn't, you now know why!) Of course, this was the week I needed to call lots of people whose number I didn't have, but should have had.
My new phone finally arrived and guess what? All the texting buttons for things like the space are on different buttons. My phone numbers are back - but now I don't need to call anyone. I have a choice between 4 ringtones. They all sound the same to me, but I can't 'hear' any of them. They are loud enough, they just don't sound like a ringtone, so I mostly ignore them. So, it will be another week before I can learn all the new twists and get new tones loaded. It's not that I don't like change - well, maybe I don't!
