Count’em. 5!

Today was a fun day at work, with most of my time spent repairing a number of customer’s machines that had been sent in with problems for me to look at. And since I don’t usually have any kind of technical specs or schematics, it means that I had to dig out some of my old troubleshooting skills.

I made an appointment yesterday afternoon for 4pm to have the local Verizon store finish the initialization of my new phone and then switch the numbers. I figured that I would hold off doing anything else besides charging it up and being sure it turned on, since I figured a SIM card change out might be necessary, and I was right. In fact both my old and new phones needed a SIM change.

I told the young lady that I would transfer all the data between the phones, and that all I needed was for her to do the new phone setup, and then transfer the phone number from my old S8+ to my new S21, and Jan’s number from her old S5 to her new-to-her S8+. All this took her about the 20 minutes and I was on my way home.

I’ve got the data transfer going right now, and it looks like it’s going to take about 4 hours doing it by Direct Connect phone to phone. Looks like it copies everything, Contacts, Apps, Videos, Photos, etc.

In the meantime I’ve been slogging through the 187 page manual that I downloaded yesterday, trying to catch up on all the new stuff on the phone, especially the 5 different cameras.

So far I like the Jeep’s new tires. They’re a slightly firmer ride, and the handling seems crisper. And the braking is definitely better. Happy so far.

Jan got a new addition to her Flamingo Flamboyance, a glass Flamingo Birdbath. We have an number of Cardinals and Blue Jays flitting around the yard so Jan wanted to put something out for them.

Looking forward to a nice long weekend plus, since with the Monday Memorial Day holiday, I don’t go back to the office until next Wednesday.
