    Wonder if their is any way that OD can set the handhelds up so that while we are on lunch the pickups won't be blasting off like crazy. Conway and fedex both will not receive a Pick up on handheld until lunch time has been ended. Just a thought, whay do y'all think?

    Has of now the answer is No..We are getting ready to switch to new handhelds first of the year starting here. Look's like they will be Samsung Unit's.Basically a smart phone with OD software.

    I agree. It makes it hard to take an actual break when you're stressing over what's coming through.

    Set an alarm on your phone and leave the handheld in the truck... truck is supposed to be locked when you’re out of it anyway...

    Lol I kick my ride and keep it in truck majority if time, they tend to call while were on lunch as well which I always thought was a no no. I worked for Conway years ago and they had the capability of not letting pickups go thru until we exit lunch I just hope our new handhelds will be able to do such.

    Only time you're stressed is when you don't get to go boat riding with Billy on Sunday.

    Man that's funny. It would be nice if they can work that into new handhelds.
