So after suffering through Cingular (now AT&T) wireless for the past several years, my mom, Tim and I finally made the switch to Verizon. We got an awesome deal through Costco (you just have to love a company that reimburses you $85 that you never even spent!) and have been playing with our new razor phones for a week now.
Well, enter the hands free earpiece. It was FREE, along with two other accessories. I didn't have to spend $19.99 this go 'round. I'm on the phone A LOT and especially when driving so this is a good thing for me. Last week I needed my hands for scrapbooking when my dad called. I just plugged my little earpiece in and started chatting. Everything sounded good on my end and it was really nice to actually HAVE service in my house for a change.
Until my dad said I sounded like I was talking in a seashell! Huh? The beach is hundreds of miles away... I told him it sounded just fine on my end and I needed my hands. Well, he couldn't understand me and wasn't going to continue talking to his daughter on her seashell so I unplugged the stupid thing and stopped scrapbooking.
I ambled into a Verizon store at the mall the other day and discussed this situation. They basically told me that even a blue tooth wouldn't sound much better and unless I wanted to pay over $100 for hands free convenience, I was gonna have to just live with the feedback as they continued to call it.
So, if you call me and I sound like I'm at the beach, unfortunately I'm not. I'm just talking on my seashell.
