I LOST MY CELL PHONE!


The most Earth-shattering and unthinkable thing happened to me yesterday! I mean you never really realize how important your cell phone is and how much of your life it holds in it...until you LOSE IT!! Numbers, pictures, EVERYTHING gone!!! How in the hell did I lose it, I had just finished telling my Mother, "Happy Mother's Day," and picked up my friend for church?!?! I am crushed. Needless to say, this has just a few, but very SEVERE implications...
  • Those losers that tried relentlessly to get a hold of me because they hadn't "got it" that I press "Ignore" and really don't want to talk to them now have ALL ACCESS to me, because OF COURSE I won't recognize their numbers when they call!

  • I no longer have the "relapse" luxuries of my "Little Black Book" portion of my contact list!

  • I don't know what in the hell these random text messages mean, nor from whence they came

  • My phone was discontinued, so I have this cosmetically disadvantaged replacement phone that I don't know how to operate!

  • And lastly (but TOTALLY not least)...when I say I had pictures in there...I mean I have some PICTURES in there!!! Need I say more?

My heart is truly broken, and my social life has come to a screeching halt! And the worst part is, I had to go almost 2 hours yesterday without it...there was a strange and inexplicable silence in my world.

In comments...consolation, how to mend a broken heart, and how to reduce dissonance regarding those pictures being in the wrong hands!

Sorry about all that! You can retrieve numbers dialed and received from your detailed billing statement and start entering them into the new phone. That way, you'll have your caller ID back. As far as the pictures, were you naked? Were others naked? Your phone has probably been discarded now that you deactivated the SIM card, so wouldn't worry too much either way about the personal cell porn (heh).

Fringe~The detailed billing did help a bit, and I also have a pretty good memory when it comes to numbers of family of close friends. The pictures, well hmmm, let's just say I tried to be creative with my Valentine's Day messages and various relapse solicitations for those "Little Black Book" members and just never erased the damned things!

Cell porn...the connotation of that phrase may have officially made me feel worse! Shame on me!

You were ignoring my calls???? Oh. That's cool. I've got loads of other people to talk to. I mean lots of people have been blowing up my phone, so... I probably wouldn't have had time to talk anyway. (sob)

In regards to "PICTURES" on you cell phone then saying more is always better. I hope you stuck a return address on your phone. I really hope it was my address.

Tera said...

Dagromm~You are too funny! OF COURSE I wouldn't ignore your calls :)

LOL, no I didn't have a return address on it (no, not even yours ;) but alas! I guess I have bigger worries like...someone who is Internet savvy getting a hold of those pictures! I don't need to see my ass on an e-mail forward!!!

Susan said...

Oh dear. I've been through this exact same thing. It turned out, though, I had just loaned my phone to someone when I was drunk. They handed it back to me a couple of days later with a blush. Imagine my surprise when there were new pictures saved on it. The big question was were these pictures I had taken of people through the night or had the friend decided just to mess with me.

Ahhh cell porn. The age we live in.. lol

Tera said...

Susan~Wow! Hey, do you guys think we could call it something other than cell porn? My stomach is in knots...am I in denial?

mist1 said...

I wish that I could offer some helpful words, but I'm not a helpful individual. Tell us more about the pictures.

Tera said...

Mist~I guess people love smut! EVERYONE seems to be very curious about the pictures! Let's just say they weren't rated G...nor PG...hell, nor PG-13...shit, I don't even think they were on the border of R or MA!!!!

EsLocura said...

I have no words of wisdom for broken hearts, except perhaps crazy glue, the cell phone thing sucks, I get a headache just thinking about it. as for the pictures , brb, need to delete something on my cell phone.

Tera said...

Es~Yeah, this sucks big time!!! Oh my goodness, I am in tears (laughing)!!!! Make sure you delete all of them!

mist1 said...

Down play them all you like, Tera. They'll turn up on the internet soon enough.

Tera said...

Mist~LOL!!! "Down play?" If they're OFF THE CHARTS as related to the aforementioned scales, that's hardly "down playing!" Oh please don't scare me like that!!!

Maybe someone ran over the phone with a car or it caught on fire?

Anonymous said...

What just pictures, we all have done that haven’t we, it’s not like there was a video of you doing who knows what, or was there? Depending on your carrier they might be able to give you a print off of your phonebook or transfer it to your new phone. Now more about those pictures……

fringes said...

Changing the name from cell porn still makes it cell porn. Haha...sorry! (Going now to peruse and ponder my outbox...)

heather said...

while i'm sorry about your loss, i'm sooo glad i don't have a cell phone! the stuff j sends me on the home computer is bad enough sometimes, i'd hate to think of what he'd send if i wasn't there in the same house to yell at him and smack him upside the head. lol

Tera said...

Anon~Trust me...I called my carrier and tried everything, there was nothing they could do! LOL!!! Sorry to be disappointing, but there was no videos...good thing I opted not to explore that feature that often!

Fringe~Sad but true (sigh).

Heather~My, what a brave soul you are not to have a cell phone! LOL @ J getting smacked upside the head!

Tera said...

Now that I've figured out who Anonymous is, I must recant my response to him (or her ;)..."but there was no videos..." should be replaced with, "but there was no videos...at least not ON THE PHONE..." Damn it!

Nina said...

You better take this as a lesson learned and hope you're not the star of some raunchy porn site! Stop taking nasty pics on your cell phone, Tera Nichole!!!!

Tera said...

Nina~LOL!! That's why I wanted you to read this so bad!!! Ha! I just KNEW you'd scold me! You crack me up...and hey I don't need anyone else making me stress out about my ass being splattered across the Internet for the whole world to see!!!

P.S. That's why "Nicole" doesn't have an "h..." (hmph!)

Nina said...

I was wondering if I should leave that out :)

Nance said...

How the heck did I miss this post?
This is why I have a generic cell phone. If I lose it, I have NO WORRIES. I can't even take a regular picture or text with my cell phone. Hell, I don't even know how to enter someone's number. That's what my kids are for.

Tera said...

Nance~LOL! I know exactly where you're coming from! My 10 year old is the electronics guru around here! I am of course not so worried now, but it was horrible!!!

Hi Tera,
Really sorry to hear abt ur loss, although u mustve recovered from it by now since its been a while. I had to go thru the same trouble when i lost my cell phone last yr but luckily i had backed up all my contacts on (ZYB) www.zyb.com

Its great, its free and its a hell of a lot easy to use. U just register with zyb free and use ur GPRS enabled cell phone to upload all ur existing contacts and calender info in a few minutes.
Atleast now i dont get a heart attack each time i misplace my phone........
ciao

Tera said...

Techsavvy~Welcome! And thanks for the tip!
