If you get a call on your home phone and caller will offer you a deal, will you be interested entertaining the call? You probably will listen for a while as a courtesy to the caller. There are a number of telemarketers bugging subscribers selling all sorts of items or offering services. Be careful, some of them are bogus, in other words scam. I intentionally did not have my home phone listed on the directory for this reason. Those who knew my number are my provider, my bank and few relatives. Likewise some pizza stores or food chains who might have saved my number when my niece order s online. These pizza stores needed a phone to call, to verify the existence of the buyer.

I got two calls from my service provider offering me a package that would convert my television to internet television.  I am aware of the plan as they had advertised the product and services. I forgo the offer.  I have and old model television. I do not have an HDMI port on my television. An officemate told me I could buy an extension cord I could use for the television. The cord has both component and HDMI plug in.  I had been busy or possibly a bit lazy to go around for the extension cord.  I put the idea on hold for a while. The package is actually cheaper than subscribing to a cable company. 

A month after, my service provider called me again. The sales agent offered to upgrade my plan to a faster internet connection, additional phone features, and additional equipment.  The sales agent of course gave me a little morale booster saying I am qualified as I pay my bills on time. For some few additional pesos I will have a telpad, new phone handset and a new modem.  The telpad, and new phone handset were delivered a week after I closed the deal on the phone. For the new modem, I have to personally pick up from their sales office.

I checked my bills online today I still have same amount of bill. I can wait before I go to their sales office for the new modem and possibly for the additional phone features. I do not have much use for my landline anyway. The upgrade on internet speed can wait. I like the telepad and the new handset. It is good the items were delivered at once. I do hope the telepad would last within the three years locked in period. It kept me more occupied.  It is brand new. It was delivered in a sealed box with warranty card.
