three strikes you are out, three bars you're in network

spent a few minutes this afternoon walking around withing a few feet in search of cellular phone's bar. was expecting a phone call, yet i know there usually is a phone with red diagnal line on my phone from my cube. that's translated as no service. i can barely hear the phone ringing, but as soon as i pick it up the call hangs with 'no service...' message displaying.

knowing i'm expecting the phone i walked out and walked about staring at the phone, neverminding anything on the ground i might trip over.

i used to laugh at phone commercial, yet i realized i was doing exact the scene from the phone commercial. walk two steps forward and get a small bar, then two more steps forward to get 2nd bar, and yet two more steps from that point lose the 2nd bar i just obtained. walk back, and it doesn't come back and walk a step to the left and there it is again. it took me a full two minutes to secure a spot that has three service bars displaying, ensuring a reliable and audible service.

sigh* when i switched over from sprint to t-mobile, i thought the services were better. last 2 years, it's been deteriorating. about 6-8months ago i could actually make a phone call using cellular phone from my cube, which i sadly can't.

of course, i'm not a phone freak. except to call general contractors or dispute credit card bill, and to answer occasional rings, i make like less than 1 or 2 phone calls per month.

but this still is sad. limited service area, and walking around in search of cell phone service bar.

wonder why the phone bill does go up, if the service area is being reduced.

time to shop for new phone service plan? or just give it up all together?

oh well, oh well...
