Receiving a #highfive from a techie

I have a compelling desire to share this:

I knew that the Verizon store was in and around that area. I just couldn’t find it. GPS was not helping. Thus I  called their customer service, and they connected me to the store.  Ugh! it was tucked away in the only corner that I didn’t look, and a 1 minute drive from where I placed the distress call.  Feeling quite miserable that I was about to ‘appear in person’ to a group of techie folks, who may have felt sorry about my lack of direction savvyness and were probably expecting me to discuss an  iPhone error that I could have fixed at home..

I walked into the store quite bravely with my head held high (above normal heights probably!)

After the necessary introductions and getting the issue resolved (thankfully it was not me. It was an hardware error!),  I decided to buy a bluetooth. I just couldn’t use the tiny one that I had bought a couple of weeks ago. It lacked elegance, even though it was mostly for connecting to a couple of handhelds that will read through the BT onto my iPhone

I chose TonePro, fell in love with it.  Then, a thought occured to me.

“Can I be online with two phone lines at the same time?” I asked

“Do you want to speak on two lines at the same time?” was the response.

“No no. no. no.” I said.  (Possibly animated vigorously by a stereotypical Indian nod?)

“I am just wondering if this can be detected by both my phones at the same time, or should I turn off one BT , to use the other phone?

“We have never tried” he said.

So we decided to check. We got the blue tooth detected on two iPhones. Yes it worked on both phones. We could receive incoming on both.

YAY!  exclaimed all of us.  “High five to you”, they said. “We discovered a feature that we never checked before”

I walked out the store with my head still held high. Higher perhaps.
