[If you've been trying to call me, skip to the bottom]

In the past I have told you about the impending death of my cell phone. Well, it is on life support. Two nights ago I tried to receive a phone call and when I pressed the connect button the screen froze up and then the phone turned off ten seconds later. This problem continued throughout the night.

I went to the Cingular store at lunch yesterday and was told that I had an out of market, out of warranty phone. If I wanted it fixed I had to send it back to Chicago. I wasn't going to do this for a $50 phone. Essentially, bye bye phone.

All of this means that I need a new phone. And, as I've discussed before, I want to keep my existing Chicago number as I plan to move back there in a year or so. So I called my phone dealer in Chicago and bought a new t616 and am having it shipped here. It's not exactly the best option but I need a phone and that one is hott, so it works out in the end.

Now, if you are trying to call me during this week you are likely to run into a problem as my voicemail is now turned off (not sure why). So, shoot me an email and I'll give you my work/home numbers for contact. In the meantime, I am going to go out and buy a bluetooth usb adapter for my laptop.

Update: My voicemail is working once again.
