I am twenty-five years old, and thus far, I have never actually had a cell phone. Hard to believe, huh? I was just never much of a phone person, and if I am out and about, I am usually with someone else who has a cell phone...since probably every single person on the planet has one, except for me. :o)
I am beginning to be more interested in perhaps going ahead and getting one though, if only to have on hand in case of emergency, or when the power goes out at home and my cordless does not work. Rare, but it happens... and lucky me, my husband is usually either at work, or the conditions are such that he is not home because he has rushed out the door (to volunteer) for a fire call. It would be nice to be have one at home for back up. And let's face it, mobile phones these days are just really awesome... I often find myself wishing I had one just to play around with, to check Facebook (I admit it, I'm addicted to the games!!) while on a long drive (as a passenger!! lol), or in a waiting room... A Blackberry would be awesome! Just today I recieved some information about Boost Mobile and Re-Boost. They have great payment options, you can pay for your plan online, over the phone, or in person at any of their Re-Boost locations, or you can choose to have your payments made automatically for those who are ::ahem:: forgetful... like me. Convenient. Not to mention I see you can get a $20 credit for signing up for auto-pay! Nice! You family or friends can actually even add funds to your account (as a gift or to help you out) without every tying their debit/credit cards to your account. Neat.
I don't really know what the going rates are for mobile plans these days, my husband has one and it runs around $50 a month, I have no idea if that is good or bad or average, but his phone doesn't have a lot of the extras that a Blackberry would have, and Boost Mobile's plan for the Blackberry is $60 per month, but includes more or less unlimited everything. The only thing that I see that costs extra with that plan are international calls and texts. Oh! I see another unlimited plan for just $50 a month too, probably very similar to what my husband already has. I admit as someone who has never owned a cell phone before I am a bit overwhelmed looking at the phones that are available through them, but I see a pink one!! Oooooh! Pink! ;o) I am such a girl. And so far behind with technology that all I can really comprehend is "Oooooh, pretty color!" I could see myself now, getting one of these phones and having to ask my husband over and over how to do this or that. I am sure you are ALL much more phone savvy than I am... so, check out Boost Mobile, or let me know about your experiences with them, I'd love to hear about them! :o)
