Wasted a whole hour of my life......

Don't you just hate it when you waste a whole hour of your life,  if you are anything like me, you don't have an hour to spare.  This is why I keep my life on a Treo Smartphone.  The one I have is around 3 or 4 years old, and every now and then, I have issues with it shutting off etc.  So I am a little scared there will come a time when it will shut off and delete any information I haven't synced to my computer.  Therefore, I ordered a new (refurbished) Treo 750 because I am eligible for an upgrade.  So I just spent an hour trying to upload the system into my computer, and transfer all my VERY pertinent information, work schedule etc.  and it wouldn't do it.  So I PATIENTLY called the help line for ATT and they spent around another 15 minutes with me before deciding that the CD and system that goes with the phone is faulty.  Could that be why it was sent back by the previous owner?  Possible.  Because it is a refurbished phone, they cannot repair it and they won't exchange it.  So now I have to waste more time, dropping it off at the post office and sending it back and the even better thing is......even though they took the money off my credit card as soon as I pushed the send button, for some reason, I won't see a refund for 2-3 weeks.  Fabulous.  Hope my phone doesn't crash at this time.....maybe I am ready for a BRAND NEW phone.....I just don't want to spend the money, you know?

You probably got the one FG sent back. Same problems, same story but it was brand new when he got it. POS. They sent him a new one and gee, same problems, same story. It's sitting on the counter and he got something else. Have him show you next time he's in. It took his stuff from the Palm (I think, because I highly doubt he re-input it all!) but he now uses Outlook. Likes this one MUCH better.

I totally don't trust technology! Everything I have (schedule, address', etc.) is in my little black organizer. Kevin hates that I hand write everything, including balancing the checkbook, but I just don't trust my computer to save it all and not destroy it! You are a brave woman! You should totally treat yourself to a new phone/organizer... you know you deserve one!
