So after more than a month of constant phone calls, emails, and even a few blog posts, I am happy to say that Sprint finally did the right thing and agreed to take back the phones. I don’t know if it was because of the aggressive promotion of my post about the issue, or if I just happened to get a sympathetic representative. I may never know, but I’m glad that this chapter is over. After consideration of what I was put through, I have switched my line over to Verizon Wireless whose service costs quite a bit more, but whose service is more reliable. Hopefully their customer service is more customer-friendly. We’ll see. I was with Sprint for sixteen years. If Verizon is any better I’ll be with them for the next sixteen (and maybe more!).
You were driving across Long Island when your car broke down. You go to call roadside assistance, but you can’t get service.

I hopped out only to find the gas tank missing. Or on the opposite side of the car anyway. I swing the car around, and go to open the tank. It doesn’t open. I come back to the car to look for the release switch. There isn’t any! Continue reading
So I finally got rid of my Scion TC. It was a reliable ride, but over the past five years, I have grown a complete hatred for Toyota. After two top-of-the-line Grand Prix GTPs, the Scion was a big step down. I’m happy to say that I’m back in the game. Continue reading
