Well, well, where shall I start... I should really start this post on Friday evening before I go to bed and do it nightly, so I can remember what all I did. However, that would make sense, and well, we all know life gets busy and sometimes we forget our senses and just live.
Well world, I have joined the cult... my new blackberry is in the mail. I have mixed feelings about it, but overall, I am kind-of excited! I called up my cellphone company because my Motorola Razor battery will not hold a charge, so I was just going to order a new one. I must admit the salesman I got was GREAT at his job. He informed me that a new battery would cost $60 but that he could do better! Little did I know that by better he meant an upgrade. He informed me that my plan had not changed since 2004 and my phone was due for an upgrade because it had been 4 years with it. However, I liked my pink phone, it met all day-to-day needs. I don't text or browse the Internet on my phone, I just phone people with it, but with me working out of town, I end up with a lot of long-distance charges. I mainly just call M when I am leaving work, or my sister if I am bored while driving (using speakerphone of course), but it all adds up. He told me that I could text people instead, which would save on long distance and overall would save on my bill as well. I thought this was a great idea, although I know it will take me a while to learn how to text... yes you read that correctly, LEARN how to text. So he gave me a sweet deal on a plan, which now allows me to have voicemail, Internet (3G), call display, tons of daytime minutes, early evenings and weekends free, call waiting, etc. all for less than I was paying before. I know, I know that all sounds great, but my phone was just not capable of handling all the plan upgrades, so he offered me a blackberry curve 9300 for..... $2.00. Yes, that is it! Not only did I save on my plan, which now has more to offer, but I don't have to pay $60 for a battery, I only pay $2.00. What a GREAT deal! This is what my new gadget will look like:
