I have been having this issue with my phone where it drops network and picks up network like a light switch. Off. On. Off. On. Constantly…for hours. And then it is fine for a week and then it starts its shenanigans again.
I have factory reset the phone. I have switched the SIM card. And a couple days ago, after it rebooted multiple times through the night which meant I had no alarms to wake me for class the next morning, I took it to Bell to send it out since it seems to be a hardware issue. Of course this always happens when I am in London, without a car, despite me being in Toronto, with people who can drive me places for 1/2 the week every week.
So I trekked to the Bell store at the mall where the customer service rep told me b/c the issue is intermittent, Samsung likely won’t see it and will just wipe my phone and send it back. He said I would need to send it out 2-3 times and they may replace it after that. He sent me to a Samsung-authorized phone repair shop in the mall and they told me the same thing about sending it back and forth to Samsung until they decide to replace it. So, I sent it out and was obviously not too pleased with the service I was getting. As far as I am concerned, in the Android vs. Iphone debate, this is a definite strike against Android.
The one positive note from this phone experience is I was in the mall where I could hit up DAVIDsTEA and buy a mug I definitely did not need and some tea samples. Then after paying for those, I remembered the teas my sister brought from Copenhagen which are all large quantities in brown paper bags. So I picked up tins. Now I am trying to taste them to see if they are worth a tin or if I should trade them or give them away.
This tea is an interesting one because unlike most people, I hate seaweed, which is an ingredient in this tea. Seaweed, gooseberries, and sea buckthorn. All rare ingredients for teas so while I wasn’t overjoyed with some of the ingredients, it at least is something different.
The seaweed flavor is not strong at all, so sorry for anyone looking for that flavor note. Instead, I am getting a lot from the gooseberries and their sour grape sort of vibe. At first I was unsure of it but as the tea has cooled, I think I am enjoying it more.
