Sprint has dead zones at my work, my home, and daycare, so I’m dropping them when the contract is up August 26th and going to Verizon.
But I’m worried. I have heard so many nightmare stories. I swung by a Verizon kiosk today, and the unknowledgeable sales gal there told me to come down on the 27th and NOT to call sprint.
My thought is that if I am on Sprint for even a portion of a day, they are going to charge me for another month (or maybe claim they have me for another two years). I want them to know I am jumping ship, so I can have them stop billing me. So, is it so bad to call them? I’m thinking that the Verizon salesperson is trained to tell me not to call them, lest Sprint give me a sweetheart deal. But since I don’t see any cell towers popping up near my home, work, and daycare, Sprint is out no matter what. So I won’t be falling for any Sprint sales pitches.
My current phone has the world’s dullest ringtones. I found a way online to make my own, and it requires 3 applications, various tweaks, and then I have to say and sign the alphabet backwards, without vowels, with my eyes closed. Well, not quite that, but I work at a supercomputing institute, I am a sys admin, I have technical skillz baby, and I never could get one of my homemade ringtones to work. So, are there any phones available through Verizon where I can just use a nice .wav for a ring? Or one that doesn’t require backflips to make my own ringtone?
Your opinions are welcome. Thanks.
