I finally have an i-Phone.
My son's been recommending that I buy Apple.
I talked with several i-Phone owners and after hearing the rave reviews, I bit the bullet.
Calling Rogers to order my i-Phone was the easiest part of the transaction.
The phone didn't arrive in the promised 3 - 5 business days, as Rogers said.
It took over 2 weeks, because the courier company sent it with my mailing address on the bill of lading.
The courier carrier couldn't deliver it to my mailing address and called to tell me so.
I asked them to write my street address on the package, but no, they insisted that I call the original courier company and ask them to call the current courier carrier and make the change that way.
They did and the phone was sent out to my office.
It finally arrived!
Shiny, white and new.
I can turn it on, I have been able to charge the battery with the slick wall plug that doubles as a computer cord and I can slide the screen to the unlocked position.
That's the limit of my discovery for tonight.
I've tried to activate the phone. I cannot.
I've tried to pinpoint my trip tomorrow to Grande Prairie for my acupuncture treatment. I cannot.
So, it's fine with me that I've been able to do the baby steps that I've accomplished so far.
There's always tomorrow night for another online lesson in i-Phone use.
I think I'll call my son and ask him for help.
He'll love walking me through the process!
He's a techie at heart, so it will give him great pleasure to help his techno-dinosaur mom crank up a new i-Phone!
I'll let you know what I learn to do tomorrow.
I would consider making a call a ripping success.
