Call me some time...

With the switch from T-Mobile to Verizon, the company I work for has TONS of useless leftover phones. The bosses want me to put them up on eBay, but I'm probably just going to take them to one of those eBay consignment shops and let THEM deal with the hassle.

There's about 70 phones, including 30 or so from our previous contract with Nextel. Most of the phones are in fairly beaten up shape, and nearly all of them were the free phones the cellular companies toss at you when you sign up. I doubt we'll get anything for them. The only thing we'll probably get anything for are the Palm Treo 600's, and those are pretty badly beaten up. I figure we'll be lucky to get $50 each.

For some reason, although we had only about 12 Treos, the previous office manager had bought 50-something cases and 25 or so sync cables. I hope I can get at least a little something for those.

I spent most of the day figuring out which of the massive tangle of cables went to which phones, then bundling everything up nice and neat in little plastic baggies.

Was this near where you are? It was an AP video. I just saw this I didn't see it there earlier when I was on line before 2 PM. so I'm not sure how long ago it happened I didn't notice them say the time if they did. I saw this one that page that opens when I go online with my Walmart dialup. Ps they said there going to change it to Netscape connect i wonder why? this may change my email address it's till part of AOL too i think. i don't know if this means they wont let me pay with my Walmart credit card anymore or not. anyway i just saw that video and remembered you was out there in California so i thought I'd give the webpage and tell you about it. if this gets one of those error's like some of those Walmart connect news things it's probably on the AP web page where ever there page it since it came from the AP. that associated press seams to get a lot of stuff like that they tell us all about.

That was in Merced, which is a good 6 hours or so from here. I used to live there, though back in the 1980's.

Here in San Diego, we got nearly 1-1/2 inches of rain.
