Journal SlashChick's Journal: I Have A New Lover! 5

I bet the title scared the crap out of some of you. (There are no less than 5 of you reading this journal who want to date me.) But that's okay... who needs men when I have a new Treo 600? :D

I went to the Sprint store today in Campbell and gave the girl there a good sob story about my poor Treo and its untimely death. My friend (after examining the dead Treo's butt) finally figured out what the real problem was -- I'd shorted the power connector out. Actually, some pieces of the power connector should be inside my car charger, because they were certainly no longer on my Treo. (I can exchange the car charger as well; I'll do that later today.)

Whatever pins I had damaged on the power connector were apparently critical to the operation of the Treo, so it decided to become a paperweight. The girl in the Campbell store was very friendly, and after establishing that I hadn't dropped it and that I'd owned it for less than a year, agreed to exchange it for free. So my friend and I drove up to the Sunnyvale Sprint store (location of the nearest working Treo 600) and I got a free refurbished Treo. My new Treo is sitting happily beside me, blinking its little green light. I haven't tried syncing it back yet, but I will once I get home later today. So a happy ending for all... there's a new man in town for me!

Edit (after reading comments): All 5 guys mentioned above have met me in person at least once.

One more edit: All data has synced up happily to the new Treo and I am now getting to know him better. Seems to be a smooth transition, all in all.

  • For what it's worth, if you've taken some of what I say as flirting or as 'wanting to date you' well, haha , I already know you're too pretty, to geeky-cool, and too involved in a business that is goin to make some people, and hopefully you weathly to be intersted in an unmotivited, but oft called cute, yet definitely not sexy, and only somewhat geeky, since I don't put the effort into even that to truly be uber...
    of course i could just be assuming that you were counting me, and there probabbly are 5 guys

    Not really, but if you're going to post a provocative subject line, turnabout is fair play.

    Funny about the pins, a friend of mine was about to buy a new DVD player yesterday. It played sound, but no video. Just trying to turn up something useful, I noticed that the pins on her S-video cable going to the receiver were bent. We replaced the cable and I was the hero. Maybe something about the lunar eclipse was bending pins....

    Glad to hear Sprint was good to you, I am considering a Treo purchase and using
  • At least if you wear it out in less than a year, you can trade it in for a new one! :-)
  • Who have no clue how to pleasure you. :D

    -Badda bing -

    I'll be here all week! Try the veal.

  • Except it hasn't shorted (yet).

    It really was a stupid, fragile design and I'm very glad that they've gone to a more Universal Connector like design on the Treo 650.

    Glad you got yours replaced though.

Nondeterminism means never having to say you are wrong.
