Y'll know that I am tech challenged. I also have not had a need to upgrade cell phones. So, boss lady has let me keep the oldest phone in the fleet. I've actually liked having it, even though I think it predated flip phones. The others call it a "relic".
I mean, I REALLY like it. Better customers have their own ringtone. PIA customers have their own as well. A couple of friends have their own, etc. Probably have 20-25 groups in it with their own ringtone, and everything else goes to a default that I chose as well.
What's more? The phone is small. I can fit it into small nooks and crannies out of the way, and it has proven durable too, because it has been dropped, scattered into many pieces, picked up, slapped back together, and is still working like it always has. Did I mention, I love this phone?
Boss lady is in receipt of a notice that the network is upgrading towers. Problem is, when they do that, this old phone supposedly will no longer work, on the new system. This phone predates having cameras or any 2G, 3G, technology. Carrier says anything 2G or older will need to be upgraded to function. I'm extremely disappointed, because I like the polyphonic ring tones that I have set up.
I also hate the costs of the new phones. I save the company money by keeping an old phone that the boss got for $40, 15 years ago. But, I guess that is her problem. I do however take the company serious and try not to spend money that isn't needed to be spent. After all, if the company makes money, I keep my job.
So. All that said, Is there a "Smarter than me" phone that will let me chose separate ringtones for different people, or groups of people? Any get a good vote for dependability? The phone will not be used for text, or data, only as a phone/voice mail system. If I knew of one with a great reputation, I'd even look for one on ebay, as long as it was a newer design than 2G. But, I feel like I can't get by without those individual ringtones. I paid for them when I began using that phone, and hate that I will now lose them. Any of you tech types out there use those individual ringtones on your 3G or newer phone? Any of you aware of 3G or newer than allows individual ringtones? I've got a friend with an iPhone, and she says if they can do that, she hasn't figured it out yet.
I DON'T WANT A NEW PHONE! Did I mention, I love the one I have? Thanks for any help.
