Rants, Non Sense, and the occasional Haiku.
I got my ticket to see TOOL in January. FUCK. YES.
So AT&T’s biggest competitor is gonna get the iPhone…what does this mean?
Well it means a few things…one..a portion of the iPhone flock will soon be grazing in a different pasture which makes me ecstatic. I won’t lie. That phone is nothing but trouble for AT&T and Verizon can take some of the burden off our customer service and network. But how will the iPhone fair on Verizon’s CDMA network? Not so well I’m afraid.
CDMA doesn’t allow for its user to use voice and Internet at the same time, which may cause a few problems for some of the users who like to utilize their bluetooth devices and surf the net at the same time as they call to talk to their friends about environmental issues, the planet dying, and their favorite indie rock band that only they and 3 of their other friends know about. But most of the ones being effected will probably be business men and women though, and they shouldn’t be using an iPhone regardless but low and behold they are and therefore deserve the headache that’s coming to them.
So the business folk are in trouble? But who else? Well Verizon’s Internet is slower than AT&T’s so everyone that gets an iPhone and wants to play on youtube will be in for some lag and buffering pain. And don’t even start on the “youtube isn’t that important” argument because lets not forget we’re discussing iPhone users here. As well, no ones really sure how the iPhone is gonna perform on the CDMA network. Customers have left AT&T and gone to Verizon because of the iPhone. Customers have also said they will go to Verizon as soon as they DO get iPhone so Verizon’s taking a bit of a gamble. They may secure some customers, but if they paid any attention at all to the way apple screwed AT&T, they should know they also may lose quite a bit too.
So open the gates Verizon, let the flock mosey on in for a graze….your reps will hate you for it.
Can Now Sell The New iPhone
Shoots self in the face
I sell phones for a living. Cell phones to be exact and I’ve done it off and on (mostly on) for the past four years. What started as a fun job for a young tech savvy 18 year old has now become a frustrating daily waltz through customer service/store quota hell that I endure because frankly, I’m good at it.
But being good at my job doesn’t mean I love it all the time. I’ve got plenty to bitch about and that’s what’s gonna happen here. I make no promises of meaningful information that will forever change your life or some daily haiku zen bullshit about your blackberry….just a little humor, some random facts, and if I’m lucky, perhaps if you, or if anyone takes the time to read a little of this nonsense you will be able to understand a little better about what’s really going on behind the counter and restrain yourself from tryin to bludgeon me to death the next time you come into my store and I tell you that you can’t get a $600 dollar device for free because you’re “a long time customer”.
With all that said I sum up the blog with the following statement :
All phones are not created equal, upgrade fees will never entirely go away, and your iphone sucks 32 flavors of ass.
Douchebags wait in line to buy
Steve Jobbs can suck it
Hmm, guess I lied about the haiku thing…
