Phone Woes

So, my phone is broken. The speaker on it no longer works. I can still hear people when they call, I just can't actually HEAR the call coming in, as it no longer rings audibly. Sad day. Really.

SO, I have employed the Cup System.

I put my phone on vibrate and placed it inside a ceramic mug. That way, when the phone vibrates (rings) it makes a loud noise in the cup and (hopefully) I hear it! It's a so-so method, but more effective than leaving it on the table where it vibrates right off onto the very quiet floor.

SO, in conclusion, if I don't pick up, I might not have heard the phone vibrate (ring) and so will call you back whenever I remember to check my phone for missed calls. (I am trying to do this more frequently now.)

AND, if any of you have a Verizon compatible phone that RINGS...feel free to send it my way. :)

I do have my old phone if you want it.
Let me know.

Does your phone use the GSM standard? (i.e. does it have a SIM card?) A youth minister I know bought a cheap tracphone without activating it and just put the SIM card from a dead phone in, and it worked. Might be worth checking into :-)
