It’s Not Me, It’s You

Don’t tempt me. Because I am in one of those moods.

On Saturday night, I damn near lost my phone. By “lost”, I mean the idiotic thing was deactivated. Which should never have happened. See, my service due date was this past Saturday and in anticipation, Prime and I bought a plan for my phone online. Everything went through, so I should have been okay, right?


My carrier is TracFone. Nothing has ever gone off without a hitch for the entirety of my tenure as a customer. That’s not an exaggeration. The very first time I bought a top-up card for my phone, the units were never credited. We had to tangle with customer service over it.

It’s been like this for the resulting eleven years I’ve had my phone. One disaster after another. Hell, Prime had to fight in order to get my current phone activated, as it wasn’t working properly! It’s been a frigging mess!

He had to do it all over again yesterday. Because apparently, the plan we had purchased for my phone wasn’t added. So he tangled with them again and my phone has been reactivated.

But this is it for TracFone. I have had it. I’m probably going to hop over to Cricket in the next couple of months. I am officially done.

Sorry, TracFone but it’s not me, it’s you. It’s always been you. From the first day, it’s been you. I’ve had nothing but difficulty with you guys and I’m tired of it. It’s been a near constant battle just to keep my phone operational; I’ve done everything right. You guys haven’t. So I’m done with you.

I’m hoping I can bring this phone to Cricket; I really don’t want to buy another one. We’ll have to see. But in the meantime, I’m going to work on getting this one unlocked and hopefully, I’ll be kissing TracFone goodbye.

I won’t miss them, believe me.

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
