Delusions of Grandeur

Wireless woes

Posted on: September 5, 2003

My current cell company is cingular, which is known for being pretty reliable around these parts. Lately though everyday between 8-10:30; 1130:1:00; and 4:00-6:00 you’re lucky to get any of your calls connected. Instead you typically get this insanely annoying busy-signal like sound. They’re supposed to be changing their network down here so it’ll support all the nifty color phones that have all kinds of cool features like cameras. And it’s about time too…..every single company here other than cingular has cool phones. But that’s not the point. The point is that they charge you for every single second of time that you go over your plan, but they don’t pay you for the minutes you DON’T use and moreover, they don’t reimburse you for all of that time every day when service is near impossible. It’s outrageous. Of course you’re forced to sign a TWO YEAR contract with them so once you find out how annoying it is to have sketchy service for half the day it’s already too late for you to back out of the plan. There should be some sort of 90 day money back guarantee or something. But that wouldn’t ever happen because that would be good customer service and since cingular is a subsidiary of Bell South….which incidentally is run by complete morons, but we won’t go down that road, it isn’t likely that cingular will ever do anything that might be construed as consumer friendly. Blah, so there’s my current rant. On a side note I think I’m starting to develop a nervous tick…..have I mentioned that yet? My right eyelid keeps doing this fluttery thing and has been for the last week or so. It’s very annoying and slightly worrisome. More worrisome are the frequent dizzy spells I seem to be having lately, especially in the morning. But I’ve got a doctors appointment on the 23rd so hopefully that’ll be either resolved by then or the doctor will know what’s causing it. In the meantime my cute little dragon clock from wales says it’s four o’clock so I suppose it’s time to start cleaning up around here and get ready to head home…..bring on 4:30!!!
