FYI [Dec. 15th, 2003|08:17 pm]
just so everyone knows for some reason my cell phone battery isn't holding charge. i charged it fully twice today. and it JUST cut out on me again. hopefully i can do something about getting a new one (it's not under warantee anymore) after the holidays. 'cause this is just pissing me off...

You might want to visit your local provider anyway.

Depending on how old your cell phone is getting a new battery might be only a stop gap measure. It being the holidays and all your provider might be more then happy to offer you to upgrade to a new phone for only slightly more then what a new batter might cost. At least this is what I found out when Ro and I visited a Verizon Wireless store on Boylston St. a few weeks ago. Even though I was no longer under warranty they let me upgrade to the next model of phone and also upgrade my plan for more daytime minutes and long distance. I'd have to consult a bill to tell you exactly how much this ran us, but it really wasn't all that much more then a new battery would have cost. Plus they ported all the old info from my old phone into my new one.
Seriously. If you've been a good customer thus far, your provider will most likely work to make you happy in order to keep your business. Especially during the holidays. Worth checking out.

Re: You might want to visit your local provider anyway.

i meant a new phone, and not a new battery.

i should be more clear on these things.

and i need money to do such things, and right now, i'm nearing broke. 'cause when i got a job i made a few purchases i had been holding off on, and made some money decisions, based upon the fact that i had gotten a job. and i didn't even get paid for all the time i worked there. and there is the whole haveing to pay full utilities thing...

*sigh* but yea, my parents might be getting me a gift cirtificate for a new phone for christmass, which is why i'm putting the thing off. that and the extream fear going anywhere near reatail land this time of year. darxus and i made the mistake of doing that saturday. that was not happy.
