I've read your posts over the last few days, and it seems as if your mind is already made up. I just have one question. If your Alltel service is still working fine, what's the big rush for the conversion to happen? I could understand if they turned off Alltel service and we were all sitting here with no service until the conversion. But we're not, so I just don't understand why everyone is so upset that it's taking longer than originally planned.
This confusion can easily be avoided if you pronounce the word intended aloud. If it has a voiced Z sound, then it’s “lose.” If it has a hissy S sound, then it’s “loose.” Here are examples of correct usage: “He tends to lose his keys.” “She lets her dog run loose.”
not rigidly fastened or securely attached
to miss from one's possession or from a customary or supposed place
Also, just because a word has an "s" at the end, doesn't mean it needs an apostrophe.
