It took me quite a while to figure out my phone. I'm very technically challenged to say the least, plus I don't handle change well, so for a lengthy amount of time I complained about this item I had wanted for so long.
What really upset me the most was that I lost my ringtones. I had 4 ringtones on my previous phone. They are ones I have had for a long time and I don't care if they are cool or not, but I wanted them back. Unfortunately, each time I tried to look on my Blackberry it made it appear to my technically challenged brain that I could no longer just buy songs individually. I had to pay a $10 monthly fee and then I could download as many ringtones as I wanted.
I don't want thatthankyouverymuch. I want my 4 songs and that was all.
There's no way I was going to pay $10 each month just so I could have my beloved ringtones. So I shed a tear (ok, not really, but it's good for a dramatic effect) and said goodbye to them. I've come to accept the boring "riiiiing, riiiing, riiiing on my Blackberry, although I have never liked it.
I've been having some "issues" with my phone and have been really frustrated with the lack of good service I have been getting on the phone or online. Saying I've been frustrated is a nice way of saying I was pulling my hair out.
Yesterday I had some errands to run and I happened to see that the new Verizon store was open, so I stopped in to see if could get help there.
There I met my new bff ... Matt.
I explained the troubles I was having and he helped get them figured out. Since that went so well, I decided to tell him my ringtone dillema. He said the best words I've heard in a long time:
"Oh but you sure can still download one ringtone at a time if you want to."
I nearly jumped across the counter and gave this stranger a hug. Scandalous!
Matt showed me how to do that on my phone and he also showed me how to download them online.
As I left, I thanked him very much and then said "I heart you Matt. You have made my day." Then I was embarrassed when I realized I actually did say that outloud, so I quickly exited the shop.
Once I got home, I ran to the computer and sure enough.....THERE WERE MY RINGTONE SONGS! I bought each of them again and then I had my family call me so I could make sure they worked (all except Austin who's in school). And yes, I'm sure my whole family knows by now what a dork I can be sometimes.
So If Jay calls me I hear: It's Your Love (Faith Hill & Tim McGraw)
If Ashley or Chelsea calls me I hear: Daddy's Little Girl (Michael Bolton)
If Austin calls me I hear: International Harvestor (Craig Morgan)
And if anyone else calls me I hear: Don't Worry 'Bout A Thing (SheDaisy)
The last song might seem like an unusual choice for me to be wanting to have back so badly, but that song reminds me of the bible verse I try to remember about not worrying.
Oh I am such a happy camper! I really do heart you Matt. :)
