Cellular happiness!


Scratch that last entry - looks like my phone has been brought back from the dead!

When I went to the Cingular store in Mira Mesa where I bought my phone they did a cursory once-over but couldn't find anything wrong, and suggested (of course) buying a new phone. I asked if I could get it serviced and they said they didn't do it there but referenced me to PCS Connection which is a Nokia service center. So after work today I took it over, just to see what was wrong with it.

Well don't you know they got it working!

The VERY nice guy (whose name I didn't get - tall Filipino guy with a scar on his right cheek) took it apart and cleaned it (with a freakin' toothbrush no less), and the little fucker started right up. And he didn't even charge me! (I was going to buy another cover for my ear bud but they didn't have any.)

So let me recommend:

PCS Connection
9932 Mercy Road (at the 15)
San Diego, CA 92111
858-549-1860

They're a T-Mobile store, but they also retail for Cingular. They rock!

Dude! I wish Sprint had sent me there when my last phone died.

Wonder if they fix Kyoceras...

My phone was made by Kyocera. It's got video issues.

You could try calling Kyocera directly... they are here in San Diego. The number I have for Kyocera Wireless is 888-236-2746 (I've needed to call them for stuff about my phone before).

Good luck!

Yeah, I know they're local -- they're a floor down from me, among other places. :) I hadn't called them directly because I thought they'd just tell me to go through my provider, who've not been so helpful. But perhaps I will.

Suggestion as well...

Cingular Store close to Wal-Mart off of the 15 freeway, but closer to Sizzler and Kinko's. I got tons of free accessories and discounts because the sales lady was rushing me out the door with freebies because she had to go on a date, lol. Go near closing!

And my anti-recommendation...

The Cingular store near Mission Valley Mall. They wouldn't match the web promotions where the Wal-Mart area Cingular store did (and I got a free leather phone case to boot) A $230 or more phone for only $50!

Plus the people at Mission Valley were rude and didn't credit back my account when I returned the phone in the trial period (after I could find out it was tons cheaper off the website). I had to follow up to make sure they credited me. :-P Mission Valley Cingular sucks!

Hahahaha, not at all. She is a player! More power to her, because at least she is completely honest about it. Otherwise I would think it was bad.

I asked her, "how can you afford to go out drinking so often?" Her reply was, "I have boyfriendS". I thought that was funny. It was funny how many guys were calling her at work.

Gosh, you make me sound like I am a model! Lol. I am just me, but thanks Alan. :-P
