My phone has been hanging on by a thread for the past few months. It has been thrown multiple times by my little destructor (Elyn) and has been dropped a few times by yours truly.

Today, I was talking on it and when I hung up, the face piece almost fell off.

It was then I knew that my phone was never going to last until I was eligible for a free one. In 2010.

I only get free phones. I have NEVER spent a dollar (other than to buy a car charger) on a phone. I don't see why I should. I don't need anything fancy. Just something to talk on and send a text with.

I asked Matthew to stop by the AT&T store so I could run in and see what they had in stock.

The cheapest phone that was available was $150.00.

And it is a VERY basic phone.

Do you know how many new pair of shoes I could buy with $150.00? Do you know how many GROCERIES I can by with that much money?

I did not get the phone.

But, seriously, my phone WILL NOT make it until 2010. It already has portions of it held together by scotch-tape thanks to the AT&T guy coming to my rescue the last time Elyn threw it.

My sweet husband offered to switch phones with me.

Mine is pink.

I told him no, but thanks.

I got home, looked online at the AT&T store to see if they had any deals. Nope. None.


So, I went to Ebay.


I ordered a new phone (well, new to me, old to the person selling it) and it should be arriving on my doorstep in the next few days.

I didn't have to take out a loan, I get several accessories with it, and I think it's probably better than my current phone.

I just hope the scotch-tape holds for the next few days!

I completely agree with you on waiting for your free phone or spending the least amount possible. Technology is not the biggest deal to me, Jordan on the other hand...

If I'd know your dilemma... I would've given you my old Razor, and then I wouldn't have had to come up with any more reasons why Madison couldn't have it. For some reason, "Because you are 11 years old" doesn't work very well.

Seriously. This was spot-on. And, pink phones rule.

I always buy phones off ebay when I need one and am not eligible yet. Hope it works great once you get it!

Jenn said...

I'm with you...I will not pay for a new fancy phone when I can buy a perfectly good used one somewhere else. I so love Ebay!! Oh and we love Craigslist, too....that is where we got Grace's DS for christmas...Half the price!! :)

When you really get in a pinch, you can buy a GoPhone and stick your SIM card in it. I've had to do that a few times!!

April said...

Yep, we just do the free phones once every two years with the renewal of our plan, too. So sorry yours has fallen apart, but I do hope you'll enjoy the new one! Ebay is great, isn't it?!

oh the destructive power of children on cell phones! and i guess it depends on where you shop for shoes...glad you got a new find! you should take pics and show us. I want to see!

$150- that's just plain silly. Glad you had such great luck with ebay!

You are too funny. Seriously, you ought to be a columnist or something. I am going to try to update my blog real soon.
