Since losing my phone in Tucson last month I have been ‘waiting’ for the resolution of my predicament to show up. Twists and turns in making the right decision for me, and emotional ups and downs have accompanied this period.
Today I decided, finally to sever any connection with the previous arrangement with my mobile phone provider, and go in a new direction. While I have kept my account with the provider, I have changed plans and purchased a new phone.
It’s an evolutionary thing. The original account was not in my name, with only one line, one phone. Then another line was added for me, and I got a phone too. Then the original account ‘owner’ died, so I rearranged the account to drop that line, and put the account in my name only, one line, with two identical phones – one for use, and one for backup.
This plan worked fine for almost three years. Then…oops! I lost the phone I was using. So I tried to use the backup phone, with the original SIM card in it. I was advised that I couldn’t use the SIM card, so I ordered a new one. Then I found out that the backup phone was not working well – I remembered that I’d dropped it, so the speaker was busted. Others could hear me, but I couldn’t hear others well.
See where this is going? It’s a process of letting go of the old, and beginning a new thing. I expect to receive my new phone later this week, and have already arranged for the new plan, effective when the January cycle began a few days ago.
Although I had to buy a new phone outright, over time my costs will be lower than they have been each month. So it’s a good thing. Funny how the process works. I’m sure many, if not most, people don’t pay attention to a process like this. But I find it kind of fascinating. I’m always watching to see what the Universe is up to in my life!
