(New) Phone!

We got me a renewed/refurbished ( who can afford new phones, anyway?? ) phone and it arrived yesterday.  There was the rigmarole of Fedex needing an actual person there to sign and us insisting on isolating etc, but in the end it all worked out.

So we are currently trying the new-to-me phone out to see if it is working all right and that its battery holds up etc, and if not... then we have to return it.


Such First World Problems. I am genuinely ashamed.

RIP Phone Camera

Toward the end of last week, my phone camera suddenly died.

It wouldn't turn on, and would keep giving me a "Warning, Camera Failed" error message.

It wouldn't take photos, wouldn't scan UPCs or QR codes - it wouldn't even turn on to begin with to do any of those things. AND it messed up the Flashlight too, which believed itself to currently be in use by some Mysterious App.

I consulted The Google, as one does in such situations, and followed all the steps advised by wiser ones who had tackled this problem before me.

Nothing worked. Not a single thing. As a last resort, I backed everything up and did a Hard Factory Reset. 

Still No Joy.

Samsung says it has to be a Hardware Failure problem, then.

Now comes the headache of dealing with the phone company and the insurance... OR NOT, depending on how infurated they make us. !@#$ Money Grubbers.
