Memorable car of the day:
Now I love this one, He is going to be late delivering those barrels!
Yesterday started off a little warped
We are online with a device from Verizon called the ‘Orbic’. That morning it was DEAD, a message flashed dial xxxx or bring it into the Verizon store.
My first technical device!
There is one 10 minutes away so off I went. A techie took me immediately. Looked at the orbic, asked me a couple questions. Handed it back it is good to go. GREAT!
Back at the RV, UHUH the same thing. So back I go. I have a new Techie and explain it to him. “Oh you are probably out of ‘gigs’ and need to buy more!”
“No sir, we are unlimited!”
“That is not possible we do not have unlimited plans!”
“Mine is supposed to be,” I said, knowing that my plan states every month UNLIMITED!
He played with it for a while called another guy over for a few seconds. Handed it back and said, “I renewed the data, you are fine.”
Somehow, I could not believe it. At the RV same problem. There is another store just 15 mins away in Oxford, FL. So Sherry goes with me this time, I have back up! LOL
Went in to see John. You can tell this guy is solid. We saw that he had a good demeanor and a “ A REAL I know what I am doing” look. He asked about 3 questions. Typed faster than anyone I ever saw on a keyboard (I thought of Betty of AZ, LOL). “Ahh you have the old Unlimited plan, good!” he said as he continued working. Reminded me of Grandson Josh.
He took the thing apart, studying something…. Comparing…. typing. The wrong SIM card is installed. He replaced it. Apologized for taking so long as he worked. Total of 15 minutes. “There it is, it is a wonder it ran as well as it did; somethings are hard to explain.”
Back at the RV it worked perfect….. I wrote Two Atta-boys for Brother John…
I hadn’t thought much about it, but when we received the Orbic replacing the recalled Eclipse, they had a rough time getting it online. It took 2 trips to that Verizon store. Finally a Technician took the SIM card out of the Old unit and put it in the new Orbic and it worked. So that is how the wrong chip was in it, but the other guys did not even look inside.
(The only technical advice needed, was Keep the string tight!)
(I know it is hard to know every device on the market, but if unfamiliar one should ASK!)
