I'm not dead

I also haven't fallen off the face of the earth or moved to a remote location that doesn't get internet. I am however, busily packing all my worldly belonging to move to a remote location that doesn't get cell signal. Yeah, Seriously.  I am 6 miles from a university and I get NO cell signal. (ATT I have 15 acres mostly all hill side, I'll let you put a tower up.) I am borrowing a cell booster and I hope that works. I do have to mention  Windstream.Who will be my sanity saver if I have no cell service. They notoriously late for everything so when they tell me, I will have phone and internet Friday, I expect it by next Wednesday. If then. They are like this even with business phones. We waited WEEKS when we set up our office and when we moved locations. Its a little ridiculous. BUT as a promotion during March they are giving all new customers a Samsung galaxy tablet. Which pretty much makes up for always being late. Since I know to expect them next week instead of this Friday it makes things a little easier to stomach. Which is completely sad that I expect bad service and its ok.

I doubt I will get a chance to post again until I am moved. But I am checking in when I can and reading whats going on in your corner of the world.

  1. If another cell provider in your area has coverage there you may be able to get out of your AT&T contract and switch if you call them and tell them you can't use your phone at home.

  2. Good to hear you're alive and good luck with moving! Back when I had T-Mobile, I didn't have service in my own house. In Denver. You know, the big city of Denver. How the hell is that even possible? Needless to say, it made switching carriers kind of a no-brainer...

    1. I don't know anyone here that actually has T mobile. They had kiosks in the mall, but the guys all looked super bored. The booster I got worked great until sometime last night. I don't know if it was really cloudy and it lost GPS signal or what, but that is a goal for tonight.

  3. Could always use something like skype or gmail/google voice as an alternative but those cellphones are so convenient. I believe you can even have google voice on a computer and cellphone.

    1. I had a text now app. and that works well but I hate saying ok I'm going home text my app number now. Its inconvenient. I installed a cell booster and it worked all night but I woke up to it not working. I'll have to check it out this evening. I hate that I've become so reliant on my phone.
