Being on disability, I finally got too poor to afford a land-line, with all its attendant fees and taxes. (My actual phone calls came to about eight bucks.
The phone bill was for over fifty, with another fifty for internet service. Can't argue with that, I just can't afford it anymore.) So I got a safelink tracfone for free, when I heard about it. After a full night's battery charge, it refused to send or make calls after I'd jumped through the hoops to have it registered and confirmed. Spent an hour on the land-line phone, when I still had it, listening to a representative go "okay ...
okay ... okay" and little else (reminded me of the old Britcom "Fawlty Towers." Finally her supervisor came on, and we thought we had it sorted.
But, no; today it's back to not working, just showing message on the tiny little screen that says "see phone restrictions -34" whatever that means. So I'm sending it back, with a letter of complaint.
