We took the iPhone to AT&T today to get the SIM card installed, and by gum if they couldn't use my same SIM card. Huzzah!! thinks I. All my contact info will be preserved!!
Yes, I can hear you all laughing now.
SOME of the phone numbers were kept. NONE of the addresses.
Well thinks I. But no fear; I backed up and will be able to recover the information
Yes, yes. Keep laughing.
So, if you know that you used to be in my phone, or if you think that maybe you were in my phone, or if you figure that by gawds you should be in my phone, please Please PLEASE respond to this with current name (don't assume that I can connect your LJ name to your real name - there's a reason that parties with LJ people have double introductions), current phone(s) and whether they are land or mobile, and, if you want, current address.
1. DON'T ASSUME THAT YOU MUST BE ONE OF THE NUMBERS THAT WERE KEPT. There was NO rhyme or reason to the kept and unkept contacts.
2. DON'T ASSUME THAT I KNOW YOU SO WELL THAT I DON'T NEED REMINDING. Even if you are related to me. I don't memorize any numbers anymore. That's why there is speed dial.
2a. DON'T STEW ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT I WANT YOUR PHONE NUMBER IN MY PHONE. Chances are that if you wonder at all, I probably do.
Comments will be screened, of course, and I won't respond to individual comments because they unscreens them, and even a moment of unscreening is too much if it has personal info. If you don't want to leave it as an LJ comment, email me at zoethe at yahoo dot com.
Thanks. Now back to playing with my phone! Even with the PITA of reentering stuff, it is AWESOME!
