  • I've had to unplug my phone before! My FIL has serious boundary issues. My DH goes to school at 8am, and goes directly from there to work until 9pm. My FIL will call him at 4am demanding he come over and fix his computer, or look at his TV or just to ask him stupid questions. My DH hated it but didn't want to say anything, so I took the prerogative to start unplugging the phone before we go to bed and plugging it back in when we wake up. It worked, and now everyone (except maybe FIL) is happy again!

  • This where you either unplug your phone or if it's a cell, put it on silent. I love that feature. I always turn it on in the AM!!!
