Cool Web Site To Check Out
Been watching dandelions grow. With low clouds and drizzle, it has been low key around the home. We had friends over for lunch and enjoyed hearing about their two-month vacation. It gave us new ideas of places to see and things to do.
Other than that, I have been watching movies on the internet and spent two days trying to get the $ 19 - free prepaid phones set up on a single account. I have failed so far but opened a can of worms I should have left alone. I was on phone with Verizon tech assist for six hours one night, then told to go to local store for photo ID to access account. ( should have known to stop. ) The next day was three hours in the store and my phone that worked was turned into a phone that would not. So after that, I spent eight hours on phone with tech support. They were sorry that I had such an issue, but to return to the store and see the manager. That brings me to ten AM at the local store. Yes, my phone does not work, they confirmed it. So a new sim card was installed and it still would not work. Their tech spent three hours on phone with Verizon tech support and I had to identify myself several times. After another type sim card was installed, the phone works. I have to pay $ 85 a month instead of $ 80 for unlimited data and calls in the USA, Canada, and Mexico. This is something I am willing to live with. There was more to this story, but best not said online. I still can't log into my account, but I am sure they will fix that when they want my money.
This did stress me out, but I am happy again. The phone was purchased ( actually free ) to test for signal in the Cabana and places we travel. Yes, Verizon has coverage everywhere we traveled. The next battle will be getting rid of our old carrier and switching to Verizon. We need phones that work on the island this Winter.
This is a great site to view places most people will never see. Somehow they gained access to restricted places with a 360-degree camera and placed the fantastic pictures online. Use buttons to look around.
