Oh, Alltel, oh Alltel!
Wherefore art thou Alltel?
Why do you forsake me so?
Why do you mislead me so?
Ok, this one’s for my girls.
Jill- you apparently called me 3 times yesterday and NOT once did my phone ring or show me that I had a missed call.
Rachael- You apparently called me back, after my phone hung up on us, and after I called you back and got your voicemail and again my phone showed no missed call.
This morning, I checked my voicemails.
The phone said I had 2. When I got the voicemail lady’s voice she said, “you have 4 unheard messages.”
I am beginning to have love-hate relationship with this cell-phone-forsaken-state of South Dakota, and I will flatly tell you that ALLTELL SUCKS BALLS! and they do a poor job of it at that. They are by far, the absolute worst phone company on the ENTIRE planet earth, and their technology sucks ass and I hate them. However, they are the only choice. Cell service is spotty, yes, and there are only a few places here that I can actually talk on the phone (which is completely torturous for those of you that know me!). I understand that there are only a *handful* of people where I live, like 100 in 850,000 acres. I get that, I really do. But the fact that their phone or service or wherever the breakdown is can’t:
1. show me a missed call
2. show me that I’ve got a voicemail
3. show me that I’ve got the correct number of voicemails just goes through me.
I know. I know. I can’t control it, but I’m wondering if I call them and say, you suck, your phone sucks and this is what it’s doing (or rather not doing) if it would improve the service any?
Probably not. I’ve learned; not a single corporation anymore, really cares about keeping people happy. They only care about making money.
Asshat Alltel. That’s what I think about you.
So girls, as much as you don’t want to leave me voicemail, my phone doesn’t let me know you even called so please do, because I can’t return a call I missed if I don’t know I missed it.
