No New Photos


I often find my post topics in the photos Mommy and others take. So this morning, as is my wont, I went to look for inspiration in photos. Do you know what I found? Not one single NEW photo - and to be honest, I have exploited all of the old ones to ad nauseum.
WHAT THE PUG is going on? Well, I did some inquiry and it seems that when Mommy's iPhone broke last month most of the photo taking STOPPED. She has taken some pictures with her Kindle Fire, but the quality was less than good inside and THAT is exactly where most of them are taken. SO, that means no real new photos until that phone is fixed.

I tried not to get too mad about it because I KNOW Mommy is trying hard to amend the situation. But her phone is almost 2 years old so it is out of warranty AND her contract for the "free" phone does not expire until May. So her carrier-who-shall-remain-nameless but advertises the largest 4G network in the USA said SORRY we cannot help you. You will need to buy a new phone.

A new phone is very very expensive and Mommy has been trying to get it all together to get a new one BUT it is hard. She finally decided to get an older model iPhone which was closer to her budget and get a SIMless one so she can just add the SIM from her old phone. AND VOILA, as the guy at the phone store said.

Well it was anything but VOILA, I tell you. Oh, putting the SIM in was easy - but getting the phone going was not and none of the online supports suggestions worked. Plus to continue she needed to be on wifi and to be on wifi she needed the internet wifi code for the phone. She couldn't get the internet wifi code without the phone being activated and it was NOT because she could not get on the wifi. After some HBO words and a few aborted attempts to throw the phone across the room, She got the phone to open and download all of her stuff from the "cloud" where she had backed up her old phone.

Then she chatted with the carrier to register the IMEI number. The "tech" could not find the phone model in his system because it is NOT A "XX" phone - i.e. the carrier did not sell it so it is not in their system. Mind you - this phone was bought SIMless so it could be used with any carrier. The "tech" said the specs had to go to engineering to add to the system and THEN he MIGHT be able to register the phone and bring up service. This, he typed, would take 1-3 days. 

It is now day 4 and in the meantime Mommy noticed the phone will not hold a charge for longer than 12 hours. She turned off all auto downloads, all notifications, and wifi and the phone will still not hold a charge. She is taking it back to the APPLE STORE and hopes they can help her. If they are nice enough she might even change carriers. . . she is THAT frustrated with the whole phone thing.

And that, in a nutshell, is why we have no new photos for the BLOG.

OMD! That is terrible! Our pawrents bought new phones last year and it was the furst time they found out about how phones are priced now days. Yes, now they are about 87 million dollars! We can imagine how frustrated your mom is. And who is suffering? You! Poor, innocent Noodles is suffering with no new photos! Why must YOU be the one suffering? It just isn't right and we hope your mom gets squared away very soon!

Keep Calm & Bark On!
