Big Girl Phone
I've been on T-Mobile for a while. I switched when my Virgin Mobile phone took a crap, at the time they didn't have an android phone (I wasn't going to spring the cash for a handset I didn't actually want) and T-mobile was the only company supporting the android. With the switch my bill went from about $30 a month to about $70 a month for a no contract deal with t-mob. Last year when my G1 died a miserable death I sprang full price for a new phone and have been rockin the super smart phone to it's fullest potential. Recently t-mob discontinued their no contract plans thus forcing customers to sign a contract. I was about to do it but with enough question asking learned that it would cost me more and I would have fewer and more limited services. Boo. BOO!!!
Last month Monkey suggested putting me on his plan. We did the math and determined that by having a family plan in conjunction with a 25% discount through his employer we'll both have less expensive bills. WIN. There is a contract, which I hate, but that's more of a symptom of my state of brokitude that drives that more than any fear of commitment. I don't want to be penalized if I can't pay my bill exactly on time. I like a little flexibility.
Anyhoodle. I upgraded my handset to the HTC EVO. Man this thing is slick! I've been using android phones for a couple of years now and the improvements built into this version are so sweet. I'm not going to gush but to say that I'm really impressed with the magic boxes we get to cary in our pockets these days.
And also... squee!!
