They're very nice in person. I'll have to ask them for a workaround the next time I'm in the store.
Let's both hope there is an internal phone number for the staff to do in a situation like that. Heaven forbid that happens, the only option is to call using your Verizon cell phone...and all the employee can say is "can you hear me now?" because the connection is so bad!

It is subsiding now and I only have 2 more days of single tab each day but I think my DH and dogs are still a bit gun shy LOL
Wow LM, that's a sucky reaction! I bet you'll all be glad when you get back to normal. Sounds like you're close - hang in there.

My SIL has a muscular condition that warrants her to be on maintenance prednisone when it flares up. She balloons up when she's on it, but I haven't heard the hot-flash comment from her. I was on the 3-week, step-down program once. I also was "tossed back" a few years but I had good results. I could deep-knee bend AND get up without grabbing onto something, had as much energy as when I was a skinnier, younger woman, and wanted to go-go-go. Kidded my doctor that I would need to do the 3-week program when I had to get the house ready for market just to have the energy and interest!

OK, our Florida guests are all back in Florida, I took a day to make bagels and take care of a few other issues. I was planning on visiting a former neighbor today who just had a baby. Last night I started getting a sore throat and a little chest congestion so no baby visits for a few days. I don't like feeling crappy. It doesn't happen often so I'm not very good at it.

Geesh Andy, don't you know summer is not the time to feel lousy? Just make sure you don't pass it along to that little guy that adores you. That is one present he doesn't want to remember. Get well really quick. And one for you. Sounds like you need one right now.

Little Guy was here Wednesday. I hope I didn't infect him.

"Little Guy" might be the one who shared with you! Either way, I hope you feel better really soon the weather is too nice right now to not get out an enjoy. Although if you aren't on that beautiful, freshly painted deck I suppose there is nothing stopping you from getting better while outside. (PS - Hope you aren't allergic to those flowers...)

He was able to patch me through to the LOCAL store, and was able to get a rep, who told me she would put me on hold for 2 minutes. 45 minutes later, she reappeared, apologized, looked up my account, and told me there was nothing they could do since I didn't get the insurance, unless I bought a new phone at full price.

Thankfully I'm eligible for an upgrade in August. What a PITA. You can't even call the LOCAL store directly and talk to a real person. Grrrrr.
Have you Googled for a local repair place? I know that we have a few in this city, it might be worth checking out.

Dawgluver.........

+1.....we have a local guy that works on Cell phones and iPhones in particular. I got his name from the "kids" at the AT&T store, after my first iPhone went for a swim in the loo. Maybe if you go in to your Verizon store your "kids" will have the contact info of someone LOCAL. Good luck Dawg. BTW .... When you say "top button". You mean the on/off button? I rarely use that one, except to "reboot".

Thanks guys. Yes, the on/off button. I'm not terribly concerned, as I can upgrade in August. It was just the wasted time on the phone, and what local business would not have their own phone number, where you could talk to someone at the store?
