I thought I would bring this up to see if anyone has had similar experiences...
About 3 - 4 years ago, I had just got a Samsung Instinct phone, and I had never been happier with a phone. Well, one day my dad and I went to
Washington D.C. for a little sight seeing. When we were within about 200 hundred feet from the J. Edgar Hoover Building, which is the headquarters for
the F.B.I, my phone let out a vibration. I thought I had a text, so I pulled the phone out to see who it was. It turns out it wasn't a text message,
but a reset of my phone's firmware, along with a total erasure of all my data (numbers, previous text messages, emails, bookmarks, etc). I thought it
was strange and just chalked it up to a bug.
Last year, I was working for my neighbor, who is the head of a local political polling business. He says he does "A.I. polling," but I call it what it
really is; automated annoyance. This is irrelevant though. I was his driver, as he had broke his leg. We went to D.C. one day, as we did everyday. I
was left to basically just bide my time around town. I went to Subway, sat in the park on 3rd, or was it Third Street (there are two), and walked
around town. I made my way near the J. Edgar Hoover building once again. When I was near, I pulled out my phone to check the time as I had to pick my
boss up. Again, the phone's firmware was reset and all my data was lost. This time it was an HTC Android.
Today, I went to D.C. to see a friend from school. He was sightseeing with his girlfriend and I thought I would join them. We walk toward the Capitol
Building. On the way there, we pass the J. Edgar Hoover building. I had the same phone as last time, and guess what happened for the third time...
Now, I don't claim to be monitored by the F.B.I or anyone, at I least I don't think I am being monitored, but what are the odds of 2 different phones
doing this on 3 different occasions in the immediate vicinity of the same building, the F.B.I headquarters no less? This has never happened anywhere
else, and I don't know of anyone who had this happen to them anywhere.
Anyone got some answers or similar stories?
