I'm so frustrated with my wireless service because the coverage is spotty in my house. The calls often drop. So I find myself standing out on the sidewalk to talk with folks on the celly.
I've called Verizon a couple of times to bitch. The first time, they had me reprogram my phone. Didn't help. Then last week I barked my way up to a manager and I got them to send me a new phone. Free.
But here's the catch: 15 days from when I activated the phone, I I'll be locked into a two-year contract with Verizon.
So I get the phone. And it's much nicer than my current, scratched-and-beat-up thingy. It's one a them Razrs.
But the signal's no different.
The prudent thing would be to return the phone and suffer until next July, when my contract ends I'm free to start over with whomever.
But that would mean parting with the new toy.
That's how they get you.
