yesterday, i made a step forward. i got a new cell phone.
my two-year contract with my previous phone expired on saturday and it was time for a new one. the old one isn’t working right. the keypad is locked most of the time. i have to bypass it to make phone calls. super annoying. yeah, it was time.
i have been researching for the past few months…talking to people…checking out their phones…reading reports…doing my phone search due diligence.
after a lot of discussion, wanda and i finally came to an agreement that i would get a smartphone. cynics would say i wore her down so i could get what i wanted. geez…that sounds so trashy. i would prefer to say that we arrived at a mutually beneficial meeting of the minds.
whatever. i suppose that discussion is for a marriage tuesday post at a later date.
back to the phone. the mac-heads of my world have told me there is really no debate. get an iphone. i suppose i don’t disagree with them. the problem is that we are long-time verizon customers and have had exceptional cell phone service and reception for the past eight years. no reason to change.
besides, most of the AT&T (the iphone service provider) customers i know seem to spend a lot of time complaining about their service and reception…so i really don’t want to change providers.
so i’ve been left with a decision. wait for steve jobs biiiiig announcement on june 7 (when he might grace the world with his decision to let verizon in on the apple action) or step to the plate and get verizon’s new htc android incredible?
now i just have to wait until june 25th for the back order to come in.
really. do you think alexander graham bell had this kind of hassle in mind?
