    I hate to interrupt all the "emo" talk with something serious:surepal:, but here goes. Most of you know that I'm flying down to California next week to pick up Cam's crewcab. Well, I have problem and hopefully a member of the Brotherhood can help me figure this out.

    I'm trying to buy a cheapie "pay as you go" cell phone and get it delivered to Cam's house so I have a phone in the truck for the trip back. However, neither Cingular nor Verizon will let me buy a phone on my Mastercard and ship it to Cam's house. It has something to do with my credit card info not matching his address. I know I can stop into a store and buy one while I'm there but I was REALLY hoping to avoid making extra stops- I'm on a pretty tight schedule.

    Anyhow, does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get around this? Is there someone here who perhaps works for a cell phone company/store that can bend the rules on my behalf?

    Just call you CC company and add his address. Then the purchase will go through. Should only take a few minutes.

    Just stop By a wally world or target and pick up a Tracphone. They are pay as You go. Redding is a good size town and Cam could tell You how to get to one, and while Your there You could get some sunblock for Your pink skin:wink1: :D

    Can you just buy one here and bring it with you? They probably allow for roaming. I'm assuming you don't already have a cell phone already?

    At least one corded phone should be in every house. If the power goes out (locally), a corded phone will still work. A cordless will not.

    I can pick one up for you down here and fed-ex it to Cam's place if that would help. I'm in Texas at the moment but will be home by this Sunday. Let me know if that works for you. I'll PM you my phone numbers.

    Yeah, but every time I call there He answers with the corded. Then I have to wait for Him to find the cordless. What a pain in the ass. At least I get to chat it up with Kim While He's finding the other phone:D

    Funny you should mention that, Jon. She says you're quite the gentleman, but when Corey phones, she sighs, rolls her eyes, and says "Do I HAVE to talk to that backwater Okie again????":surepal:

    Ive just finished stretching string from here to canmore... kim can.. thats funny.. kim can PUT the can on her end... here you get the old tofu container to talk into...

    anyway... youll never make it over the mountain in my (ex) truck... it probably wont make it 30 miles before it blows up... and then big foot will get you.. he lives down here dont you know..
    and then when the local crosseyed deliverance people hear your sweet canadian accent.. well.. they just might make you their "special" friend..

    I think phoning home will be your least of worries....:-)
