Might have luck early Sunday. And just like any other online service you can usually request to be transferred to a US call center if necessary.

RAT BASTID Sold Me A Defunct Phone! mad

j/k

well, half kidding:
The seller is a Windows re-furb/reseller;
prolly never checked the iPhone passed acknowledging
that it turned "ON".. so I'm giving him the benefit
of the doubt that it wasn't intentional.

The iPhone is defunct
(I did bring it to the AT&T store yesterday morning
on the way to our traditional Memorial Day Bar-B-Que)

It failed all their attempts to Activate too,
and I was advised to return it to e-Bay ASAP.
(I just contacted the seller to get an RFA#)

MEANWHILE...

The guyze @ AT&T took pity on us and UpDated
our iPhone(s)3Gs to iPhone(s)5s AND Account which
brought down the monthly cost by $40 per month...
...AND Tossed in TWO New LG Mini Tablets (ANDROID)

Judas Priest! Talk About "A LEARNING CURVE"!!! eek

Ted's in there SCREAMING @ Me about it being
"MY F'n FAULT" for trying to replace his busted phone frown
while I'm trying to locate & download & read PDFs


QUESTION:
ANDROID, huh?
What have I gotten myself into? crazy
...does this thing have the potential of becoming
A VIRUS TRAP? shocked

I've been blissfully using Apple products since 1989
without any consideration for Anti-Virus BS
since Norton 2.3 (..er sumsuch)

Ain't that a kick in the head?

In spite of my best efforts
my new iPhone5 can't connect
to my OLD iTunes app.

Despite multiple restarts of
the phone, iTunes & the G4

iTunes is unable to detect the new phone(s)
System Profiler sees it in my USB2 ATI Card,
but it doesn't appear on the DeskTop
so I can't even Eject It Safely.

You can eject it.

Unfortunately though...

Never understood the switching sim cards thing. I thought we all went over that in here some time ago. Not necessary and creates more problem than it solves.
It's less about the data that is on it and more about the card ties you to the carrier.

I just pulled da' plug with no obvious ill effect
same as simply unplugging a phone from your charger.

Yeah, thanx
no use banging my head against the keyboard
we all knew I needed an new(er) computer.
the last links on your page may prove helpful
(if only my rich uncle would kick the bucket smirk )
