More issues with DPH-540

Found some more issues I have with this phone.

Seems that closing the phone doesn't mean hang up like other flip phones that I have used, so have to make sure I press end when I'm done.... :roll:

And, it doesn't have speakerphone function....something all my other phones can do. :`(

Also, found an oddity....I wanted to look at its settings via its web interface, but it kept saying locked by SIP provider setup. Which didn't make any sense, since I own the device and I'm using Broadvoice's BYOD plan.

Turned out that because the phone hadn't been left at 'home' state (it was showing the Phonebook screen) that it was 'locked'. :?

I've been meaning to get a pair of over ear types....though they are pretty pricy and then I learned that I was going to get laid off. So, it dropped off my radar.

But, now that I'm working a nice cold basement near the door to the data center, I once again thought that I should get around to investing in a nice pair. Especially that day where they had the door propped open and fans blowing....

Then while I was catching up on my email, I spotted that Sony was changing its MySony rewards program. And, they were offering a one time coupon of $25 an option to its 10:1 points conversion. I have so few points that it translates to even less cash, so $25 was a big deal. So, I lept at the chance to get it.

It as noisy last night

But it was because there was quite the thunderstorm outside last night, and not because I've been carrying the HOT phone for work this week. In fact, no pages or calls over night. Even though I woke up to find no network to the University.

Now that service is back, I'm reading that a lab is shutdown due to water leaking in and the network outage was because due to lightning damaged switches.

The bad thing is that when I got to my computer, I could hear the sound of dripping. At first I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. My condo is on the second floor of a three story building. But, when I walked over to the patio door... I soon found out where.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
