Well, Shit.....


Previous Entry Well, Shit..... Oct. 5th, 2009 @ 12:54 pm Next Entry
my iPhone is dead. Deader'n dead. I called my mother (to check on Snips), it worked fine. I put it in my pocket, then went downstairs to go get lunch. In the car, I pulled it out and flipped the ringer from "off" to "on"...and nothing.

Usually, you get a vibrate and the screen pops up with the "on" or "off" symbol..this time? Nothing.

I've tried to reset it. I've tried to turn it off - but it IS off. Sweet Geek came over and plugged it in (thinking that *maybe* it was low battery - but it shouldn't be, because I charged it on the way to work this morning). :sigh:

Since the boss'll be in, I can't call Apple...so I get to go to the AT&T store to see what they can figure out. Probably have to buy a replacement....since it's exactly 1 month out of warranty. (Of Course it is.)

:blah: If I didn't have another year to go on the contract, I might consider something else...but I *LIKE* my iPhone. Or - did, when it worked.

ETA I did a forced reset - again - and this time it worked. I'm thinking the cussing under the breath helped. Didn't hurt. At least I don't have to buy a new one - yet! (And...I still have 50% in the battery. So...not sure. According to the Apple iPhone support, "frozen" iPhones are common. Great........

Have you seen "Eagle Eye"? Turned me off cellphones big-time. Not that I even have a cellphone... well, I do, but it's never charged or on...

Re: iPhone?

I haven't, but I know about the tracking and stuff. I have turned off a lot of the features on my iPhone, and I try to turn it off every evening.

If I'm ever in a position where I have to get out - and get out fast, the phone will NOT go with us. I don't want to get "pinged" if I'm trying to relocate.

I kinda have to have a phone, what with the 60-mile 1 way trip every day. The iPhone was a vanity gift to myself (yes, I admit it!) - but any cell phone can be pinged. :sigh: It's something I live with, mindful that it'll have to go when push comes to shove.
