Customers can never be kind and Loelia hits me.

We are updating our customer's information (so when they call they are asked to provide their current address, contact TN, email, etc...)
Besides this my co-worker Loelia hits me with her eyeglasses case or hand wallet just because.
It seems that this is due to the high availability (time on the phone without getting a call) that we have due to the holidays.
What is it like for you guys working as CSRs for other phone companies?

Do you still have an oldie (2 Yrs or more) cellphone as your main cellphone?
I still have my old HTC Desire HD (Inspire 4g in the US) running Android 2.3.3. I can handle my whole agenda with that device. It covers all my needs (Besides working as a C.S rep for a M.V.N.O; I also offer tech support to small/mid business for their computer networks and equipment; I am trying to establish a small tech support business on my own).

I do not live in the U. S. and I guess many people that work on C. S. for cellular carries around the world (and U. S carriers that outsource their customer service) follow this website.
Which phone do you have?

iPhone 5 OTA update

Sold a customer a 5 today, which promptly recommended an update which fixed an issue that prevented over the air updates. Ironically, I couldn't install the update to fix the bug...because of the bug.

Most of you PSer's at least the Shop Talk and Lounge people are accessing PS at work.... I wanted to know if you know of any sites that you are not firewalled from, of course we are all not firewalled from phonescoop. Maybe we have other similar websites we are not firewalled from.... Just an idea.... Here is a list of some we can access here. (all version including wikibooks, wikitionary, etc)

I will add more as soon as I figure out what we can and cannot access... add more if you can think of any.

I don't care how asanine you think it is, I'm not letting you add a new line of service to your husband's account. Especially when you're not an authorized user. I don't feel like getting fired this week.

The iPhone 5 Dilemma

That can't be. I was sure all of the leaks were fake. I don't understand. There's no way apple would make something so boring. Surely Steve Jobs is just playing a prank from the grave.

Are you effing kidding me?! Its just a stretched out iPhone 4S! The Samsung Galaxy Note II 4G LTE has a bigger screen AND more words and numbers on its name. APPLE FAIL.

Well, It DOES have fancy branded names like "Lightning Connector" for every single one of its tiny features, and I've been informed its "magical" and "feels goog in the hand."

I hate myself for wanting something so marginally better than what I already have.
