The Telecom Digest for Sep 3, 2015
|Spirituality means waking up. Most people, even though they don't know it, are asleep. They're born asleep, they live asleep, they marry in their sleep, they breed children in their sleep, they die in their sleep without ever waking up. They never understand the loveliness and the beauty of this thing that we call human existence.|
|Anthony de Mello|

That's a good way to get started. You can always add a richer plan, or replace it with a simple $10/120-day deal, later. > they told me that the MEI was usable. However, evertime I call > someone, they hear only a couple of words and then it cuts off. That's not normal. Have you a Time/Temp info number (like the number 1-203-777-4647 formerly serving New Haven, before Frontier axed it)? If so, see whether you can maintain a connection with it for at least 50 seconds. Or try calling 1800Walmart or 1800Walgree[ns] or the like, so as to test connection duration. If such tests fail, I'd wager your handset is defective. In that case, try to transfer your PagePlus number to another handset (same cust service number will just swap MEIDs for you in their database). Apologies in advance for your lost $12 if indeed they turn out to be gone forever ... but I think this will resolve itself better than that. Cheers, and all best, -- tlvp -- Avant de repondre, jeter la poubelle, SVP.|
