i got a shiny new phone today!!! cellular, mobile, handy- pick your adjective, but it's a slide-open samsung and it's steel-blue and pretty! *joy*
my grandparents got me a trackphone for my 18th birthday (june before i started college, after high school graduation, summer of '06) and i've had that same one since then. it's a beast of a phone, though- i've dropped it on concrete, into sand and water, sat on it, popped the cover off more times than i can count, and peeled off most of the rubber edge, but it still works just fine. which is, needless to say, nothing short of miraculous as far as the average lifespan of a phone is concerned. but
it also costs my grandparents $50 per month for the minutes, most of which i use to talk to jim.
so jim's grandmother mimi has an extra space on her family plan, $25 activation fee plus $10/month for unlimited nights and weekends and free calls to anyone else on her plan (which includes jim), and a choice of free new phone along with it. oh frabjous day
, i am in heaven.
i only have like four contacts in the new one right now, but that's because the track phone doesn't have a simcard- it's not a conventional phone. it's also paid through february 15th, so i can still get calls on it up until then, and i have time to move all my contacts over to the new one. i still don't have texting since it costs extra
so stop texting me, you buggers
but this new phone has a camera
, it plays music
, i can have ringtones
. you have no idea how cool that is to me. ^____^
anyway, if you want my new number, call my old one. joyousness!!!!!
ETA: cait, i'm a horrible person and keep forgetting to call you at night. and during the day i never know when you're in class or at work... T___T i beg your forgiveness.
