We wanted to show you our new thingy...

FURST....I had pre-posted Yesterday's post...   BACK before I made the Switch from Wildblue to Verizon.....    I was just too LAZY to change the tense of the post... to past...      Sorry for any confustion...           We are NOW and have Been  on VERIZON InterMutts.      

THIS is our new   INTERMUTTS   provider thingy....   It is called a Jet Pac         4G     Mi Fi   That is funny.... they made a Wi Fi Pun .
     We couldn't get it to NOT have glare...    the silver phone is our Land Line handset... the Black one is Dad's Cell Phone... all opened up...    and the WIRE thingy.. is what charges our intermutts thingy up.  
 Check it out.... it is 4 inches Long   and  2.25 inches Wide   and half an inch high...   actually SMALLER than a Smart/iPhone thingy....        There is a bright red LIGHT thingy that goes around it.... you can't see it in these two pictures... and fur SOME reason...   in the basket picture... it looks PINK...   BaaaaWaaah...  
 Here is where it LIVES....      
There are NO wires coming into the House... NO MODEM and which is grrrrreat beclaws there are lots less thingys to collect DUST... since MOM hates to do the DUSTING thingy...  No Router is needed for me to be WiFi...   with MY YapStop ...      It works up to 200 Yards away...    butt what the heck... it is so small that it fits into a pocket and that means it will go ANYWHERE...   for a Day and a Half...  before it has to be plugged in to reCharge...    
  IN FACT....   If I take take the Jet Pac ... I could take my YapStop to the PARK for Park Day... and be totally connected and see what all of YOU are doing in OTHER parts of the Blogville Park...  
      We can even take it on VACATION and stay in touch with you...      Isn't that COOL?  
AND guess what ELSE??????    YES, furends there IS more...   THIS Verizon thingy  is  $40.00    LESS per month.  
   We think this thingy is working quite well.         The only downside (so far) is that we did have to ask all of you to send us an email so that we would be able to Store YOUR addys in our Contacts.
     And we REALLY REALLY do appreciate all of you fur doing that fur us.    We KNOW it was a pain under your tails .    
     We DID go into our Blog thingy and FIX it so that it now Shows our New Email Addy... that way anybuddy who missed our posts about the new addy will be able to find it THERE under the Tab    called        CONTACT ME...   
    Now to tell you about What the WildBlue Tech Supervisor told us... when he came to our house on Thurs. April 11th. 2012, to take away the big DISH from our Roof... and the Tria and the Modem...             he told us.... that FINALLY WildBlue was Admitting that   ALL THIS TIME SINCE  OCTOBER 26th, 2013  ( 5 1/2 MONTHS)    all the troubles we have had with our intermutts......    was beclaws      THEY   have a PROBLEM with the Satellite BEAM.   
NO FOLKS....  
 it was NOT my YapStop...     
    it was NOT my Router
It was NOT their Modem
   It was not the Wire coming from the Roof through the Wall and into THEIR MODEM.
    It was NOT our Surge Protector
   It was NOT   our WALL PLUG
It was NOT  ANYTHINGY that we did Wrong.         ALL that TIME it was  THEM and their BEAM.
    FINALLY after all the HOURS mom spent on the PHONE with their Tech peeps   and all the DAYS we had to stay home... WAITING fur Tech Guys to actually come HERE to TRY and FIX stuffs that were NOT Broken..        All that time....    it was THEM and their Stupid Satellite Beam... which they have TOO MANY CUSTOMERS ... TRYING to use.     
       Bye Bye    WILDBLUE.....         you are HISTORY !!        Just Sayin'.

My Master finally convinced Momma to give up the land line. She hates the cell phone stuff because she keeps saying it is stupid half duplex communication, whatever that means. Oh well. Welcome to the 21st century, right?

Kisses,
Dexter

Totally pawsome that something so small can do so much! We're glad you got rid of the P U Wild Blue stinky satellite connection.

Now that it's all said and done, it's time to kick up your paws and get on with living that great doxie life!

Three cheers for modern technology!

Hugs,
Lily Belle & Muffin

$40.00 less per month is lots of dough for more treats and beer.

Idaho PugRanch said...

Good you are all fixed. We went through similar last year with century link. Furst thing they would ask is "is it plugged in?" WHAAT! After many calls and a new modem they finally admitted it was a problem with their line. By then Mom had decided ADIOS to them. We are happy with our cable but yours is nice and portable,that is pawsome!
hugs

I love how only after they are losing a customer they admit to wrong doing! I like the travel options you have with the provider, that's pretty awesome!
