Well!  I just got back from lunch and there was a box waiting for me on the front door step.

Yep AT&T came thru and got me a replacement phone.  I guess missing the deadline by 1 minute yesterday they came thru for me.   I just put the phone together and it works!

The replacement phone started from Ft. Worth Texas and came by FedEx.   I thought, oh no it had to go to Memphis and back like things normally do. But they were smart enough to send it to the regional sort center here, check out the path it went:

Interesting that they would leave a $450 phone without a signature.  But all is good.  Thanks AT&T, happy customer again. Tilting away....
