Not doing so well with my resolution to post more than last year – so much has happened since I last wrote.
Personality style – I am typically a laggard. Rarely do I ever pre-order anything, except maybe an old-fashioned book, the hard-cover type for my collection. Yep, another place technology has me trapped. Now I not only order the flipping hard-cover version, but I also now purchase an electronic copy. Really, WTF am I thinking?!?
This year, I stepped out of my ‘slow and steady adoption’ philosophy and I jumped on the bandwagon and pre-ordered the Samsung Note 7. ERROR. This was really a stupid move on my part. I am still trying to get my pre-ordered, delivered-on-time, amazing device replaced. There you go I have plenty of fodder for entries if I use this space to jot down my drama trying to replace my beloved, potentially explosive, phablet.
To date, I have responded to every, single warning message. I have physically been to numerous stores attempting to do a ‘ship-to-store’ replacement device. I have talked to the support people multiple times for both my carrier and Samsung. I have downloaded the update which turned my battery from green to grey and tells me constantly to replace my device. I am at my wits end! I am seriously considering buying an unlocked Samsung Note 4, like my sons and obtaining a refund. There are multiple good reasons for considering this move and I am damn near done waiting for the powers that be to get their act together. Stay tuned….
