Lesson Learned

Well It finally happened.  I have ranted about how we as a society have become hooked on modern technology.  If I had only listened to myself, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  I am not hooked don’t you know.  Yeah right and I have some ocean front property for sale in Little Rock, Arkansas don’t ya know.

Anyway I bought a new Apple IPhone X at the end of the year.  Things were gong great and I loved it.  Then, it happened.  I waited too long to charge it and it was dead.  So I plugged it in and it showed it was charging.  Then the little Apple showed up on the screen and it booted up and some how it had cleaned the phone of my passcode and facial recognition so low and behold it was “LOCKED UP”.  Nothing, nada, nil, I could not get in.

Well I took it back to the AT&T store only to discover they couldn’t help me and told me I would have to take it to an Apple Store.  One problem, I live in the sticks.  The local movie house just started showing “ET” last week.  The nearest store was an hour and fifteen minutes away.  After I get there I have to wait 2 hours and 10 minutes before someone could help and still no answer as to why the phone did what it did.  It had to do a “factory reset” of itself so I lost apps, pics and phone numbers.  Gotta love modern technology.

From all of this I learned that I am a member of the dumb arse club.  I had not backed up phone numbers, I had backed up pics and my favorite apps all had to be reloaded.  No one could get in touch with me and since my phone is my hotspot I couldn’t access the internet.  I am going to have to rethink the way I do things through the internet and look into getting a landline.  Hell I had even slacked off writing in my journal because I had been recording my thoughts on WordPress.  Changes are a coming for sure.

As far as the Apple IPhone I was not impressed at all by their tech support.  Really disappointed.  Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you enjoyed it.  Share the love!

  1. When my grandmother died and we were cleaning her apartment out I was presented with a box of photos and allowed to pick those I wanted. Priceless.

    I sometimes think that today’s digital methods will change all that. One day in the distant future, my kids or grandkids will probably drop their iPhones into a swimming pool and all the photo memories from their youth, parents, and grandparents will vanish forever.
