Phone Stress!!


Well today was the first day that I could upgrade my cell phone and I knew exactly what I wanted when I began ordering the darn thing!

My small phone budget made me really happy when I found the $20 Blackberry Pearl (after mail in rebate) on the alltel website. But I would have to buy the internet and email with it which would be $20 more on my mom’s bill. Of course, I would pay that amount of money each month, not make her pay it.

Well, I was considering buying the Internet, but I went to see if I could find anymore cool phones that weren’t smartphones. Well, I thought i found this really great phone. It would be $100, but the Samsung HTC Delve was great and touchscreen which was better than blackberry! I ended up not ordering a phone yet because I wanted to think about it some more.

At church Heath came up to Taylor when we got there and was really excited. He said, “Taylor, I have to show this cool phone I got yesterday. I’m really excited about it!” And he brought the the Delve phone that I was considering to buy! He let me play around with it and, of course, I fell in love with it! Unfortunately, he told me that it required him to buy the internet capabilities…

So the problem is, the only two phones that I really like, both have to be upgraded to internet capabilities. And the phone I fell in love with happens to be the more expensive one.

So what do I do??? Is touch screen worth the price and the monthly payments?? Are blackberries as great as people say they are? Should I give up on my two favorite phones and just buy a semi-cool phone that doesn’t require internet?? Some personal experience from people would be nice. Any tips, anyone??

  1. the blackberry pearl sucks. micheal got one a couple months ago and it already broke. so he got another one and he has only had it a week and that one messed up.

  2. Save the money. Get internet. Get an iPhone. Be Happy.
