I want a slide phone but no one will give me one for free and allow me to stay on my mingy $20 a month phone plan. I can get an almost respectable one by switching to a $40 plan with a $35 call allowance. Would mean I could not use the excuse of cost of call to abruptly terminate calls.
Sod 'em all. I will buy my own.
$500 from phone companies? I don't think so.
Look online. Can buy one I like for $360. Wonder if it comes with an Australian warranty? The seller is in Australia, but who knows? Never needed to claim on a phone warranty anyway. Seems to good to be true. I credit someone's bank account with that amount and they will send me a phone. If it goes wrong, who to I contact?
Look at Ebay. Now what if I bid on the same phone from a reputable Ebay seller up to the amount of what I could buy it online for? Sounds like a plan? I am looking at buying Sony Ericsson W495 I think.
Nothing wrong with my old phone of course, but given I am an inner city chardonnay drinking latte sipping queen, I should have a new phone.
Life really is such a battle.
