Sometimes I amaze even myself. I know, that’s really some feat! ;)
My Helio Ocean started acting up recently. One of the buttons has gone a little haywire and the native browser stopped working (the “white screen of death”!). I had put off calling Helio Tech Support because I never seemed to think about it when I had a half hour or so to spare — that, and I had already tried several fix suggestions in the Heliocity forums which worked for others but not for me, telling me that mine probably wasn’t an easily fixed problem.
So Monday morning I finally ‘mustered (mustard) up the catsup’ (nyuck!) to give Helio a call. The tech helping me was very cheerful and when I explained what all I had tried so far, she didn’t insist on putting me through the paces again. So after trying a hard reset, I find that the wacky key is still being neurotic and nothing helps — so they are sending me a new Ocean.
Have I mentioned lately that Helio rocks? :D
So I’ve been going over a mental “to do” list in my mind of the things I’ll need to re-load on my new device. Email and contacts are easy-peasy, those are stored on the server and are sync’d up very easily. My ringtones and wallpapers I either found via various Helions at the Heliocity forums or made myself … then it hit me: how the hell was I going to find them all again?
A bright idea struck me: I know, I’ll bet I mailed most of them via one of my Gmail accounts. Sure enough, I did. AND at some point (I don’t remember doing this) I had set up a filter to label everything sent to my device with the tag “Helio” … so now I have a nicely tagged collection of every wallpaper and ringtone that I sent myself (or pretty close to it!).
Go me. Go me. Go me.
