That Banging Sound You Hear…

…is my head hitting the wall.

Transferring a phone number from TracFone to TracFone is not easy
Transferring a phone number from TracFone to TracFone is not easy

I absolutely hate taking on new technology because no matter what anyone promises you, it NEVER goes smoothly.

I am one of the last adopters to any new software, figuring that someone else can do the beta testing.

I don’t replace my computer until I’ve dragged it behind my car for a couple of years.

So when the battery on my old TracFone started turning off at random, I waited and waited and waited.

Then I finally bought a new phone, another TracFone because I don’t use these darn things very much.

Now, they promise that transferring a number from one TracFone to another will be easy. Activating a piece of cake.

They lie and I know it.

So I’ve had this new phone for a couple of weeks now, dreading this moment.

Now I have two—count them—two dead cell phones. One doesn’t work because it’s been deactivated. The other because it has not been activated.

Sigh.

Bang. Bang. Bang.
