A Week or So Later with the iPhone.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

I have had my iPhone for over a week now and am still really excited about it. After going on a week long car trip – I have to say I really enjoyed having the camera in the phone to take quick pictures (something I did not have with my BlackBerry 8700c), I organized my overcrowded personal email inbox somewhere in the middle of Ohio while Amy was driving, sent some of my pictures that I took of my son Evan to his grandparents while we were on the road, mapped our route with turn by turn directions, and amazed… Read More »

My iPhone

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I finally did it, I had to…I bought an iPhone and I have loved every minute of owning it. I had an appointment the second day I owned it and the person I met with wanted to “zoom the pictures like the commercials”. I also now have the ability to carry around tons of pictures and movies of my son, as well as some of my favorite Curb Your Enthusiasm so I can watch my favorite show while waiting instead of reading some lame magazine. Sure, the camera is not great, but it beats mine on my old Blackberry (there… Read More »

Vonage Customer Support: 45 Wasted Minutes I will Never Get Back

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Time is very precious to me. I have a lot to do and not enough time to do it. Today I had the displeasure (second time now) of dealing with Vonage’s support via phone. My issue: My outgoing caller id was incorrect. I thought this would be simple. My thought process on how this would go >> Vonage customer support: Ok Jennifer, the incorrect name you see was the previous phone number’s contact name, let me update that for you and at worse, have you power cycle your Vonage adapter. Me: Thanks! Call time: 5 minutes. The end. The reality…. Read More »

blackberry 8700.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

After much research and some procrastination, I decided to bite the bullet and buy a Blackberry 8700. I have been using it for three days now and it is by far much nicer than I ever expected. I thought I would miss my Treo 600, but really I only miss my Rocket Mania game. First Impressions: Great keyboard. It is easy to type quite fast and it it has a good feel. Bright screen. The screen is plenty bright and the text is easy to read. No buzzing! I can actually place calls without hearing crazy buzzing in the background…. Read More »

phone recommendations?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 5 Comments

Once again I am looking for a new phone to replace my aging Treo 600. About six months ago I took my phone apart and performed a minor surgery on it to get rid of the buzzing….and now it is back. I have finally had it and am in need of a good phone solution. The keyboard/keypad is most important to me as I type a lot of email/blog posts from my phone while in transit to work (on the train…not driving) and while on vacation/when I am without my iBook. I do not want to press one key three… Read More »

treo 600 surgery.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

The problem: My Treo 600 has been buzzing for the past year or so when I get low on battery. Buzzing to a point where I decided I needed a new phone. Since the new phone did not work out, I decided I had to go back to my old standard: the Treo 600. Unfortunately, I still had to deal with the buzzing, so I finally decided to do a search for “Treo 600, buzzing” and finally found some documentation of a possible fix. Excited, I took a drive to my local hardware store, got the hex tool to open… Read More »

minute 1 back with the treo 600.

I finally got rid of the Nokia 6682. Even though I have issues with my Treo, the second I had to type in my password to access the phone, using the QWERTY keyboard…I made peace with my Treo. So far, so good with my Treo re-activation. I had some word with Customer Service yesterday about how it was going to be “impossible” to use my phone on the Cingular network, but after talking to someone else this evening, all is well. My SIM card has been re-activated and I am supposedly going to have service in 3 hours. Good to… Read More »

day 14 with the nokia 6682 and cingular.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well well. I am not in the best of moods. After working on an important several paragraph email for 30 minutes this morning on the train, I have made my decision to turn in my Nokia 6682 phone in the next few days. Yeah, I am not even going to see the full 30 day trial. Perhaps at this point you are asking yourself…30 minutes on one email? Yeah, that is right. Without a QWERTY keyboard…that is what you get. So at the 30 minute mark…my phone decides to freeze. Freeze hard so I am forced to restart, and lose… Read More »

30 days with the nokia 6682 and cingular.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

The time has come to retire the Treo 600. I got to the point where I actually cared about taking/making calls and the buzzing was driving me and my friends crazy. I have looked at multiple phone/wireless companies. I really liked the Sony Ericsson 910a, but it finally came down to price/technology. The 910a is an older phone (older=there is a new generation (990) already announced), and for $400 I had my reservations. The Treo 650 seemed like the perfect upgrade…but I have been so unhappy with the phone part of my Treo, I am not ready to try that… Read More »

ahh, good to be back.

A few days without internet access is finally a great feeling for me, but comingback to what seems to be endless email…not such a great feeling. During these internet free days (and lots of phone usage) I have finally come to the conclusion that is time to finally leave Cingular. My reception is embarressing and I become violently frustrated when I recieve a call and all I (and the other person) can here is buzzing. Yeah…some is my aging Treo, but it really got worse after the Cingular transition (yes I upgraded the phone’s firmware). A couple of my friends… Read More »
