Tonight me and my no car self will be at World Gym, begging like a junkie to get in. Hopefully with my feminine wiles I will be allowed in without a membership and be able to workout on the eleptical for 45 minutes until my
Yesterday Kelly got a text msg on his phone saying that we will now be charged a data plan of $30 bucks a month. UM NO! We don’t use the internet on our phones.. Yep, we have smart phones, and nope they aren’t that smart since none of the features are enabled on them. Well we use to have the internet on Kelly’s until I gave him the choice of that or cable.. So I promptly get on-line and begin reading the disclaimer on the website. It basically boils down to if you have a smartphone you are now being forced to have a data package. This angers me. Not once was I told when I got my blackberry that I would BE FORCED to have the internet on it! So I call them, and at first customer service tried to tell me that we moved our sim card, and that they can tell when we do stuff like that. I count to 10 and tell her in my best nice voice, “No ma’am. We have had his phone since May of ’08 & mine since October of ’08. I then sign in on-line and tell her well on line it has it right? I then begin to rant.. just a little bit.. about how neither one of us use the internet on our phone and we should not be charged for this. After she lets me cry it out she tells me that the only way to fix this is to put a block on both of our phones. Done. FINE! So we are now both officially blocked from the internet on our phones. SO for those of you sweet people who send picture texts, can’t get them, don’t bother!
Now on to the reason for the post, our upgrade is in May. Kelly is desperate for me to get an iphone. I know most of you out there think I am a total freak of nature and something has got to be wrong with me! Well here is how I look at it:
- 300 for a phone- ludicrous!
- They won’t give you insurance
- Mandatory 30 bucks a month for media
This to the budget queen is a lot to swallow.
- I then begin to get tempted..
- I could blog on my phone
- I could do mobile uploads
- I could get picture texting
- I would have my own “garmin” at all times
