I Hate Getting a New Phone

Oh man, sometimes your day goes to shit.

Great plans for the day undone. I noticed my phone was not charging. I have two chargers in the house, one cable. I moved the cable from one to the other, still not charging. I went out to the car and got my second cable. Tried it on both chargers, still not charging.

I had 72% left on my battery. I got in the car and drove to the Sprint store. The very nice attendant there told me he could see some stuff in the charging port and would try to clean it up for me, and see if that solved the problem.

It didn’t, even though he got it pretty clean. The charge to have someone LOOK at my phone would be $75. And then whatever to fix it. The phone is 2 ½ years old. I just paid the buy out on the lease. Grrrr.

So…..I bought a new phone, iPhone 7. I HATE getting a new phone. Especially now. Remember the days when they plugged your old phone into your new one, and you went happily on your way with all your apps, music, photos? No. Now, it’s all saved in the cloud. I, ME, have to download it all….and re-open it and reset it all up.

First I had to update a brand new damn phone. That took a half hour.


I have spent about an hour getting all my music loaded up and into it’s respective playlists. Now I am trying to download all the apps I had, which was quite a few. I remembered that usually when I update a phone, I have to then shut it down and reboot once more to make it work correctly. I apparently can’t click on more than one at a time. So, I have to wait for each app to load and then click on another.

And I have to reset up all my email accounts. I have 4 or 5. My “notes” did not transfer through though they should be stored in the cloud but are not, apparently. I have passwords there. To a lot of things. Grrrr.

Can you say, aggravated, frustrated, angry…….

Then of course, the smaller issue of all the icons on my desktop are out of order.

I guess, thank God I am not working and trying to deal with this. Small favors.

Needless to say, I’m not getting anything done that I had planned to do today.

Love and light.

  1. Bummer on having to get a new phone. Perk of a Droid, though? Easy transfer. Got this phone this past September. Scanned my old phone’s serial number, went through the transfer process, 15 minutes later, new phone had old phone’s contents. Thankfully, that was the case. I hope you get everything figured out with little to no hassle. I know that’s gotta be aggravating.
