It can only happen to me...

Hi all!!!



as you can tell from my previous entry, I have been absolutely happy about getting myself the slim-trim motoL6. I have been doing lots of nonsense with it involving lotsa finger movements (I think alot of you aren't thinking straight already....me neither...ahem)



in any case, i was very fricking happy, kept thinking 'great deal! wow! $8 only!!!'.



Fantastic hor?! HOR?!



Yah, I thought so also!




Untill I went to my office.....




the moment I step in, a beep sounde on my phone....and I thought, 'yea! someone misses me!'



And looked at my phone.



It Flashed.....'EMERGENCY CALLS ONLY'....



Freaked out, I started running around the whole room, pointing my HP all over at walls and at astonished colleagues....



My Greatest Fear is realised........



my hp kena zero reception in the office....




KNNBCCB......




Beyond CJD already,



AKK

My understanding is that you wanted to switch service provider anyway i.e. you are going to be screwed either way.

The bad news is that you are hence tied to the Starhub contract for what? 2 years?

The good news is that you could have been $160 poorer.

Erm, enlighten me on this, since I am a complete handphone ignorant.

Is this problem of yours because of the handphone or because of the service provider?

Ensui said...

LOL... :D

well, its either your handphone's or Starhub's fault. Ask around your colleagues if they experience the same bad reception.

1) if they are with Starhub but different hp and have bad reception, then its Starhub's fault.
2) if they have a Motorola hp but different service provider with bad reception, then its Motorola's fault.
3) if they have the same hp and same service provider, then at least you're not alone in this. :D

dun worry, girl. no matter how much bad luck you have experienced, we are all here for you. :)

Its a blessing in disguise! A silver lining in a dark cloud! A lotus growing from a filthy pond! (getting out of point here...)
Look on the bright side, you HAVE to leave the office to make/receive calls. isn't that a good thing?

nadnut said...

if its starhub fault, write a letter in to them... i have a friend who did that...

Winter said...

sometimes it happens if your workplace is a secluded room and/or with thick doors.

ollie said...

Hahah.. I went phone shopping today, and I think the Nokia phone isnt too pretty. The motorola is damn chio! :D

Hmm.. I think it should be the service provider's fault. Go call up Starhub and comprain. They can do something about it de. :D

Zhe Bin said...

This is the first time I hear you go "KNNBCCB" leh! At least as far as I can remember! LoL. This is funny.

lancerlord said...

Too slim until no reception. :)

My colleague also had "No reception" problem but it was on another brand/model/service provider. He also furious mad. Ended up used it to listen MP3 on the first day in office. Muahahaha....

Derrick said...

Or bi =D $8 lor. Hah! Fantastic deal hor? HOR?!

marsha said...

Damn!! I hate poor reception. just moved to new house with new phone and then discover that in order to get 3 bars, i have to walk into the bathroom. no where else...just the bathroom...but must be near the window, you know. Otherwise, it's still one bar, ok?

i think i have a very faint idea of what KNNBCCB is...but isn't there an extra B in there somewhere? :-) Otherwise, it should be KNNLLBCCB?

Tempest Blue said...

haha... i think starhub has a pretty good reception on campus wat.. must be the thick walls in the office.

what's CJD? Creutzfeldt Jacob Disease?

barneysaurus said...

Aiyah, should follow me by 'walking on sunshine'! Geddit? Geddit? Haha....

Seriously though, me still think Singtel is the best for recep lah. But I like my current number too much, and there's no true number portability in S'pore.

Tempest: Let me be kaypoh and answer: Chou Ji Dan :D!

ivanny said...
