    Default Yet another fatality. Or, Cellular collateral damage.

    I am the Spalding Gray of phone death!

    Now, if I had actually killed any of the many phones I've had die in the past couple of years, I'd be the first to admit it, but this is beginning to look like a curse. I was at the Esther Bone Memorial Library yesterday with a client, and I saw that the reading tables had power outlets, so I figured, "Eh, why not plug my phone in to pull a little more charge?"

    A brownout later, and Verizon is sending me a new (refurb, of course) Rezound by next day mail, that should get here today.

    My wife never has phones long enough for them to die on their own. She leaves them in her pants pockets and they get washed.

    *sigh*

    The refurb replacement runs at 120F. Too hot to hold to my ear to talk on. They are sending another one to replace it.
