Smash

My company smartphone slipped out of its holder on my belt this afternoon and landed hard on the pavement today, screen down. It spiderwebbed. The phone still looks like it's working. It rings when I call it, and makes tones I recognize, but the screen is so badly broken that I can't activate anything. I've filed a ticket with my employer to find out what to do next; however, there is a chance that I'll lose access to some things, including my work e-mail, because it depends on 2FA codes that are sent to that phone. If you possibly have been trying to use my work e-mail to contact me, you should use my personal e-mail, which is kastandlee followed by @ and gmail.com.

Phone Fall Down Go Boom

I'm astonished the phone does still work, even though the screen is destroyed and thus inaccessible. If my employer authorizes getting the screen repaired locally, I'll head off to Reno/Sparks to get it done.

I hope it does not take as long to fix this issue as it did to replace my computer.
