At long last

After two years of unbelievably horrible service, my Sprint contract finally expired today, which means I finally got to cross No. 76 off my 101 Things list.

I couldn’t afford an iPhone contract, so I went to Verizon and had my number transferred to a cheap Motorola ($20 after mail-in rebate) instead.

My former Community World staffers will be pleased to learn that if any of them calls me, my new phone will play the official theme song of 8110 S. Harvard.

My plot to make my own one-of-a-kind ringtones was foiled by technological deficiencies, so I wound up having to settle for Verizon’s more conventional offerings. This means that my phone will NOT be playing “Zaphod Beeblebrox for President” every time my boss calls. I did, however, find a suitable alternative….

  1. Like the Monty Python ringtone. Aunt Jean has hers set so that when she gets a text message you hear the “thwannnng” of an arrow followed by, “Message for you sir!” (Holy Grail)

    Ha ha, awesome.
