My mother just phoned to let me know that she and Ray have a new cellphone number. Mom has become high-tech enough to use her cell for all of her long distance calling. She noticed she was running out of minutes and was wondering if she was allowed to change calling plans so she got on to her dial-up internet and tried to check it out for herself. In this age of Blackberrys and Bluetooths and Razr’s and wireless internet and laptops, somehow the p’s always seem to put things into perspective.
Some snippits from our conversation…
I finally had to call the customer service number the other day and talked with the nicest girl! They sent us this new phone that we get for FREE! To buy it would cost $79.99!
I called again today after we got the phone to see how to activate it. The girl told me to just turn the phone on and I said, “How??”
…Then the new phone rang and I got all nervous so I asked her, “What is THAT? How do I answer??” I tell you, this girl was so helpful!”
I’m standing right here looking at this new phone! It answers when you open it and hangs right up when you close it…it’s a Noika flip or something!
We even have rollover minutes now! This is so good for your father!
This afternoon your father and I are going to figure out how to get the welcome message the girl sent us…we are just going to take our time and do it right!
The girl told me she needs a new phone, too. I told her she might want to get this one, it is really slick!
Your father has it all set up here…he is even charging the battery!
