13 Aug 2008 New Phone
 |  Category: money  | Tags: , ,

Tim and I had a short time in the afternoon to go down to Saint Cloud and do a little bit of shopping between his conference call at noon and church meeting at 5:30. We needed a nice outfit for him for Glory’s wedding, and I needed to buy Glory a fun gift! 🙂 We had a little bit of time before we needed to be back in time for Tim’s meeting so we stopped by Verizon and checked out their phones. The battery life on my old phone has been poor for a while, in fact in May we stopped in and they gave us a brand new battery for it, which the last few days has been only lasting me about 5 hours before giving the high pitch beep that it’s dying.

We didn’t have a lot of time in Verizon to decide what we wanted to do, and there were a lot of people shopping around. So we went ahead and decided which phone I wanted depending on price. We were up for our new every 2 which gave us $50 off of the phone, and this phone also had a $50 mail-in-rebate, so when I get reimbursed it’ll cost me a total of $3 for the tax. Pretty nice! Pray that it wont get lost in the mail, ’cause it’ll come out of my blow money.

I think we were pretty easy customers for the lady that worked with us since we already knew what we wanted. But we were also not budging when she tried to sell us all the different packages for the phone. It was simple, we don’t have the money.

Tim and I have been playing around with it. I can take video which is a first for me, and the camera on it is nicer. Tomorrow we leave for a weekend with our jr. highers for lots of fun down in the cities. I’ll probably be taking lots of pictures and video just for fun! 🙂

    Dana…I bet you will love that phone! They always try to talk you into a higher plan, don’t they? My husband has Verizon too. Anyway, you can e-mail your pics or video to your computer so that you can post them on your blog. Nice phone!
