TWFE sells out: The phone arrives

Sprint wasn't BSing me.
My Sprint Ambassador program Fusic phone arrived at 10am sharp. It's only been one week since they first contacted me, and I now have an unlimited use free phone in my grubby little hands. If you want to impress me, the faster the swag arrives, the better. Way to go, Sprint!

The operation manual is as thick as "Atlas Shrugged," and not much more interesting. But Sprint was kind enough to photocopy a quick start manual, which allowed me to...turn on the phone. A mighty accomplishment in itself, if you ask me.

Even funnier, once I called the home phone to find out what my cell number was, it came up as a call from Rodrigo Villeda? So if you see Rodrigo on your caller ID, don't worry, it's just Big Al.

I'll have much more later in the weekend, as I figure out this new fangled technology. I need to start reading Ayn Rand the manual...

And if any other Fortune 1000 companies are reading, TWFE is willing to continue to sell out. Just make a good offer. Despite what you might think, I do have standards. To include TWFE in your viral marketing schemes, my email is in the sidebar, guys...


  1. Mine's on the way--should be here next week.

    If you figure out how to use the phone as an EVDO modem in the meantime, let me know how it works out.

  2. I will be sure to let you know, Rob.

    I've been able to figure out some of the features, others I'm having trouble accessing. I anticipate a call to customer service sometime over the weekend...

  3. Can you guys, like, suggest to Sprint that I'd be a great phone tester??

    I would be a GREAT phone tester.
