    Just wanted to let everyone know that I have NOT been ignoring anyone if it seemed that way[​IMG] (I have thought about it).. I have DSL running on a phone line and out here in the rural area that I live in, there are not a lot of options to choose from right now.

    I have been offline..meaning no phone and no internet since June 2nd other than on my  Blackberry and that is like not even having internet in my opinion.

    I want to thank Brian, Jerry and all of the moderators (except for Abi) for jumping in and taking up the slack. Abi has been off line too[​IMG]

    Anyway.. I heard someone complaining a while back that I just wasn't handling the issues fast enough so while maybe I'm not, this time it was AT&T's fault[​IMG]

    I'm really just being funny in my own dry humor way and letting everyone know that I can now read your posts again and get PM's.

    Back to the Fun!!

    You know that's right. I don't mind reading email on the thing but browsing the internet is just not happening.[​IMG]

    Well with the storms rolling through here right now we'll see how long I stay on and I don't have a crackberry [​IMG]   So far I've had to reboot twice and I just had the power out for a minute causing another reboot

    Glad you got your phone situation resolved.  Don't you just hate it when that happens?[​IMG]

    AT&T and I had a come to Jesus meeting!! That was after it took me 25 minutes of talking to an answering machine to finally get to a real customer lack of service representative. Then they kept telling me to go to ATT.COM to get help for common problems and I just screamed into the phone.. I WOULD LOVE TO IF I COULD MORON!![​IMG]

    I am feeling much better now..

  12. Hey Jeff, If Verizon has good coverage in your area, I suggest losing the Blackberry and get a Droid. I used mine just like a computer while on vacation this past week. I can also tether my laptop to it via USB and use it as a modem which is about as fast as your DSL. Just a thought for a solution to your AT&T issues.
