Cingular Rocks!

Have I mentioned lately how much I like my cellular phone provider?

I've been having problems with my phone battery lately. Figured it was a memory problem, started keeping the extra charged up and not swapping until the phone dies. Figured I'd reset the batteries. Nope. I lost the spare (the original battery, fortunately, as my other battery is a longer-capacity lithium ion) carrying it around to have it for changing out. Oops.

So today, I decided to stop by Cingular and price new batteries. Turns out the problem might be my phone, so he recommended I have the guys at the other office (the one with the service department) check it out. Cool. Then he lowered my bill by $3, changed my mobile-to-mobile minutes from 1000 to 5000, added rollover to my plan, and changed my 250 text messages to unlimited for the next three months. Keen.

I've had this phone since my birthday before last. But I've brought it in for problems off and on. So that must explain why, when I brought it by the service center, he swapped it out "under warranty" with a new phone for free. Score!

Eventually I'll replace the battery I lost, but it doesn't feel so urgent now.

While I was at Sam's, I figured out that if I bought milk there, I could delay the Kroger run until tomorrow. I've got all the ingredients for tonight's dinner in stock, and that'll give me time to sort coupons tonight on dinner break, to take advantage of triple coupons tomorrow.

So I've:
  • Fixed my phone battery problem
  • Gone to the allergist
  • Picked up dog food at Incredipet
  • Done the Sam's run


After I fix my lunch and dinner, I'll change for work (I wore jeans today because it's a nice mild 67°F), then if I have time I'll verify the stack of direct-pay statements in Quicken.
