Technology, what a challenge to the senior citizen. We have a Verizon Modem to connect to the internet since we cannot have a land line. The little modem is about the size of two fingers. It has its own cell phone number. We have had it a few years and it is getting old and it’s contacts are getting bad.
So I took it in to Mr. Verizon. Sorry sir, we cannot fix that, it is out dated… BUT we have this replacement, a super duper little thing that will replace some hardware, it is battery powered and completely wireless. COST? FOR you sir, longtime customer, $30. WOW
What if I don’t like it?
Return it within 14 days, and for a $35 restocking fee you are back to square one.
(It is the small oval shaped thingee)
I did not like it. Now Imma thinking. It cost $30, if I turn it in it will cost me $35. I cannot see paying $5 above the cost of the device to return it. So I guess I will keep it and have my old device re-installed (whatever that means). The replacement is not as good as my old sick one. So it is in the drawer saving it for back up. Something about this deal doesn’t make sense.
It is a cute little thing, but did not do the job.
I asked Sherry if she would like an e-tablet. She said, ‘I told you I did. Somehow I missed that. So while I was talking to Mr. Verizon I asked about the tablet. They just happened to have one sale (can you believe my luck?) (ha), so I bought Sherry one. She is happy with that one so I won’t be taking it back. LOL.
I have already ordered a replacement for our sick little modem, I love Amazon. LOL
