My phone was stolen.  

Probably while I was at Starbucks writing this afternoon. It was in the pocket of my coat, which was hanging over the back of my chair, and apparently it proved too great a temptation for some dickhead. I noticed it was missing as I was leaving the mall, and went back to both the restrooms I’d used and the Starbucks to see if it had fallen and been turned in. Not, it appears, so much. I called it as soon as I got a chance, and it had been set to go directly to voice mail, which pretty much put the nail in the hope I might’ve just lost it, because it was not set to go directly to voice mail when I last handled it.

I’m annoyed that I never did get around to insuring it, although it was only in the past week or so that I thought most recently that I needed to. I’m very disappointed to have lost the pictures of Young Indiana that I hadn’t yet uploaded.

But what really pissed me off is that I couldn’t find a phone number to call Meteor Mobile at from anything other than one of their own phones. I had to talk to a chat agent, which was fine in that she blocked the number and whatever, but I didn’t want to use chat. I wanted to speak with someone. On Twitter they assured me the number is available under “Contact Us”, where, shockingly, I had already been clever enough to look rather extensively without finding it. (Turns out it is, but so far below the fold that even with my browser window extended to full size, the number is still not visible. *sigh*)

Just in case somebody else is searching for this goddamned number, Meteor Mobile can be reached from a non-Meteor phone at the following number: 1890 808 585.

I’m grumpy. :p

Ack. That is disappointing indeed.

Cool detective work on the number, but yes, the grumpiness is entirely deserved. Bah. Some people...

I'm sorry to hear that. That sucks. :(

There's been a rash of "apple picking." I couldn't figure out where the apples were coming from until I saw it in print--Apple picking. Then, I felt like an idiot. Thieves are keying in on the distinctive headphones.

You don't happen to have a smartphone with any of the locator applications active, do you?

That's terrible. ::Hugs:: Having had electronics disappear before, it is the files you get most annoyed about.

Ungh! I hope Meteor Mobile can help you recover the phone. >_<

Hugs. Nothing I can say but that I'm sorry you got robbed. It sucks.

Ugh, yuck. I hope it's not too burdensome to replace.
