Ring up a memory..

I finally realized the other day that the ringer on my i-phone wasn’t working. People would call, nothing would happen. I wish I could tell you this is my only complaint with the phone; it’s not– but no ringer is a BIG deal. I set out to fix the issue which included choosing a good…
