I am so upset... darn it!! My husband called and we were joking around laughing and my phone dies without warning, I guess it was not charged well :mad: :blah: :angry: then he kept trying to call back and i could not answer it!!! Finally it started working for like a few seconds enough for me to tell him it died and now he won't call back I am sure and that was like probably worth one whole phone call. We only got to talk for like 2 minutes...and it must have costed like $7...and to us it is alot, we have to regulate the calls because of money...and I have been needing to talk to him lately, missing him and going through some stuff :angry: :blah: :mad: :banghead: :shake: :cry:

poor thing, he is probably so upset too now....DAMN CORDLESS PHONES!!! damn MCI for charging $3.50 for the first minute too!! :blah:

Awww Mrs G that really sucks! Due to past power outtages I have a corded phone on hand in case of emergencies and it works well for the cordless phones too. They are much cheaper than buying another cordless phone. I do my best to keep mine charged up at all times. How often do you two talk? Could he call today maybe? For your sake I sure hope so!

He could call back this morning but he didn't. I am sure he is figuring it would cost more money now on top of those dropped calls. he was not supposed to even call last night because the night before we talked for an hour. we do not have set time that we talk, but lately we have been needing to talk. friday I was very upset and I guess he called last night to check up on me. .....but now without that last call, I feel incomplete, until I talk to him again :(

Someone told me you should always have a regular phone if you have a cordless. Sorry this happened to you. I know how much our phone calls mean to us.

Hey you can get one almost anywhere Kmart, Target, Walmart etc. For your sake I hope he tries again today. You New Yorkers are so lucky to get 30 minutes per phone call. Here in Michigan we get only 15 minutes! My guy gets out in seven days, so my phone bill will be so much lower because he calls three times a week.

Well, if he calls, it will not be until this afternoon now or this evening :( I do not think he will though, I hope he does not think I did this on purpose, he did not seem to understand why the phone died, maybe not knowing about charging phones LOL

Awww i feel for you, especially lately with what mci did to me, not once but twice, anyways, besides the point.
I have always kept this old phone, the kind with a cord. just for emergencies and that did happen once where my phone started dying. Luckily it has an extremely long cord that i could reach from the kitchen to the living room to get comfy.

o, mrs. g, sorry to hear this! Hopefully he'll call back soon ... i was in target last nite and saw the "regular" type of phones there and they were really cheap, like 5 bux or so. It didn't have any of the latest "perks" like caller id or anything but i got one just to have in case of power outages, etc. the cordless phones can be unreliable at times, as I've learned from experience with the cordless going out due to non-charging (my son likes to leave off the base ALL the time!). Anyway girl, run out and get one ASAP! :)

Sorry Mrs G! I know how it feels, the piece of crude cordless I have doesn't hold a charge to save my life! I've been disconnected more than once! After the big power outage 2 summers ago, I have a corded phone just in case. They still sell them. ANd get an extra long cord, because when you are used to roaming the house on a cordless and suddenly you are tied down to one chair, it will make you crazy!!!!!

Man, that sucks!!! I hate when things mess up our calls; it's so frustrating! Hope he calls again soon.

Awww... I feel for you Mrs G. I hate that and the calls dropping like that leaves you feeling like the call is unfinished.

I dunno about in NY, but I had some phone line problems last year that caused a few dropped calls and I called CBS and asked for a refund because of the high cost for what they could see was less than a minute or two. And hold onto your britches, but they DID refund me the whole amount of those calls. I dunno if it's possible for you, and it took me two months to see, but it couldn't hurt to try.

Just a thought.

you ALL are so nice and very sweet to try and comfort me, he still has not called and get this one...yesterday afternoon (monday) I realized my phone had been disconnected since the night before? I think! The cord seems to be loose! I have no shopping near me to buy a phone and since it snowed I have not gone out much, I will get one this weeked.

Back to work :(
