    Oh, How WE Worry About Our Droids!!!

    As a moderator in the forum I see people frequently post about things that are really insignificant. Silly little problems like how come I only have 2 bars today when I had 3 yesterday.

    But let something like that happen to me, and I will go to the corners of the earth to find the answer.

    Yesterday I tried calling my pharmacy up which happens to be in a Target store. Instead of getting the usual recording I got three beeps and a disconnect.

    So I called in with my VoiP phone and placed my order. You know the usual stuff a moderator has to take. Anyway I forgot about it until I had a few minutes to kill later. So I tried it again. Same thing happened. I try calling other contacts. No problem. I try again to call Target. A few beeps and a disconnect.

    So I conclude that it's got to be my phone. I think "I need to change the baseband on this, it's an obvious piece of crap." I again tried VoiP and call went through just fine.

    I get someone from the news team and another mod to call the number. They can't get through either on their Droid. So it has to be a Verizon problem, right?

    Now I've now spent 3 hours on this stuff. I call Verizon and the friendly rep tells me she gets the same thing too but it can't be Verizons fault! Why not I say, I can call it on VoiP? She says she doesn't know what to tell me.

    I call the store to inform them that they have an issue with Verizon phones. The very nice girl says interesting, will tell her manager. I then ask what's the regular Store number so I can reach the pharmacy there, because you got to understand people, drugs at my age are very important. Come to think of it Drugs at my younger ages were very important too, but I digress.

    I get the direct number to the store and it has a different area code on it. Huh? I know I've called the pharmacy with the 440 area code before.

    I try the same number with a 330 area code and it works like a charm.

    My conclusion: The area code changed to 330 in that store but calls were still being allowed to the 440 number for a while. I look at the number on my bottles and sure enough, it says 330.

    I spent 4 hours on this last night. 4 hours to find out I was dialing a wrong number.

    And don't tell me you wouldn't have done the same thing too. You guys are just as obsessed about this phone as I am.

    And I'll try to be a little more responsive then saying "what are you worried about" the next time someone ask a really insignificant question

    Heh heh, you won't do THAT again.
    When I saw area code 330 I glanced at your location.

    Where are you? I grew up in Warren.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    Good story. I've had advanced troubleshooting sessions that ended with a simple solution like that too. Sometimes it just makes you laugh.

    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Ive had problems like this too, Ive come to the conclusion that all the problems I had before with my droid slowing down 1-5 days after installing a rom was most likely Helix 1's fault and not the rom or kernel like I always assumed, I spent countless hours reflashing roms, kernels and SBFs lol
