I gave up.
March 12, 2017 4:45am CST
The iPad that my big brother left to my sister has no sim card. The phone that he left to me has, but I did not remove it; it is just here. I use the phone to check this site, post on face book and play candy crush saga. (My other phone has the CC soda). I am a very patient person; I don’t give up so easily. As such, I was requested by my sister to put her micro-sim card in to the iPad, which I did immediately. Then here is the problem: From 2 PM to 5:30PM, I was doing all means to activate the card in the iPad, but to no avail. I even placed the sim card in my iPhone and miscalled it-it rang. I put the sim card back to the iPad but it has no connection. There was no ‘carrier’ in the iPad. I also went out to the veranda and miscalled it, but it did not even ring at all. I gave up. I have to be in this site before dusk, because I will log off later. I missed 3 and ½ hours of trying to activate the sim card for my sister. Another reason why I gave up is- my sister was not at all checking on what I was doing. She is still busy playing in her other phone while I was already sweating profusely remedying the iPad. She was unmindful of what I was doing. It seemed it should be my responsibility to activate the sim card FOR HER. I give up! I told her to message our brother and ask him about the problem. Do you give up on a favor asked of you?

I recently bought a headphone with a microphone, where the recording is a mess. I tried all what was required for it to behave but it has not. I even called in my technician to check. I am getting a replacement now but the courier guy who came to pick it up told me that there were 3 others too who had asked for replacement. I am waiting for the new piece and if it acts funny then I will ask for a refund. I have no issues with Amazon. They will refund if I opt for it.

So you put the sim card from your device into hers in order to activate it? I'm confused. Even if it did work you'd want your sim card back so you can use your own device. Her's won't work without any sim card, I don't think.

i put her sim care in my iPhone, so the sim was already activated, but when the sim was inserted back in the iPad, the gadget cannot recognize the sim card. but her problem is now solved- i removed the sim card yesterday and she put it in a phone that she is not using anymore. i guess the phone is now activated.

This may sound surprising to you but I don't own a cell phone. I don't even know how to operate one. If I need to call someone I use the landline or ask one of my grandchildren to call the person on their smart phones (does that mean users are stupid?) I use the PC or laptop when I need to go online. One good thing about not having a CP is no one bothers me in the most ungodly hours.

I too am naive as regards these apps in my brother's phone as I am using it now. I wonder why when I put the first letter of the word,the letter is repeated. No,we are not stupid. And I also wonder why smart phones are termed smart,if at all. Hahaha!
