My phone must be on its last leg. Even with a new battery, it can't even keep its charge while it's being charged. I plugged it in at two bars out of three this evening, and now it's down to no bars of charge. It's too bad. I liked that phone.
Since I'll have to get a new phone anyway, I think that it may be time to switch to somebody other than Cingular. I get great reception just about everywhere except my apartment and my office. Other peoples' apartments half a mile away? Just fine. The Microsoft building between the two? No problem. But, of course, my phone spends 99% of its life in one of those two places, and it's annoying to not get reception in either one. Other people get reception in my apartment and my office. Time to find out who they pay way too much a month for service.
