The server actually asked at one point: "Is there a number you can be reached at, other than the cell phone?" and she didn't even giggle. I replied, "Well, no actually. That's why I am calling you, to get the phone working."
Apparently, they have to call me back to verify the account change. (never needed to do that before...)
Also, sage ich "DeutcheTelekom macht spass! Es freut mich gern!"
[Therefore, say I "Voicestream/T-Mobile is fun! They make me very happy!"]
Feel free to fill in your own sarcasm.
