I am ending one week of frustration with my beloved iPhone SE. After sending my phone to Apple to get fixed, and it spent time in sunny California, and it finally got back.
No Sim card, which you need to dial phone numbers.
Evidently, a SIM card is considered an accessory, according to Apple. Jeez, uh, would you mind putting that in Webster’s. under cell phone accessories? A cover, a screen guard, maybe, but a SIM card which is in the inside of the phone?
So I called Verizon, who is my carrier. Sim card? Sure.You have 7-10 days before you receive it. After complaining and being bumped up to a higher supervisor, I am promised one in 3-5 days, which might as well be bumped to 6 or 7, considering the Memorial Day weekend coming up.
So if you are a phone contact of mine, enjoy the continued silence gratis of Verizon AND Apple.
The two tin cans and string are looking better every day.
Bear with me gentle reader while I recap what has happened with this iPhone. I received the new one from Verizon and it was defective.So I went to Apple to order a new phone. I mean this was their brand new phone, let them replace it, right?
Got a new phone back, and then needed a Sim card that Verizon had to order and mail to me.Then I ordered a protective glass from a company on Amazon, which arrived broken.So what else can happen?
While trying to get ready for my company today, I threw a bath mat and some dirty clothes in the washer……ALONG WITH MY iPHONE.
Here’s hoping the back of rice works.
The other phone came today.
It was here when I came home from work.
My cord to connect the phone? One is at Undisclosed, and the other in the office.**good place for them, eh?**That was the first stumbling block.The second stumbling block is I have an Otter box on my phone, in order to save it from things going bump in the night.Jim struggled big time to get it on the phone for me.We’re going to bypass that aggravation by going to a Verizon dealer in town and having them set up the phone, including getting the otter box off so the sim card can go into the second phone.I’ll probably put another$25.00 out to put protective, tempered glass on the screen: again, to protect it from things going bump in the night.
Two tin cans and a long piece of string, anyone?
