I bought a new phone.
I know, I know, I said that I wasn't interested in keeping on top of this kind of thing. I still don't care. But necessity breeds desperation. Or something to that effect. My writing is shit. With my 3-year contract coming to a close, I needed a new plan. Add on to the fact that Rogers is now charging for incoming text messages as well, I really need to add text onto my family plan. Yeah, I'm in the dark ages. I don't text. Why is it that people use phones for everything except to make fucking simple phone calls? Huhh??? Answer that shit for me.
Anyways, I hated texting because my old phone had that stupid alphanumeric keypad, where you had to press '2' three times to get to 'C'. Yeah, that kind of thang. So no, I didn't text. That was pretty much the only requirement I had when they asked me what kind of phone I wanted. Just something with a full QWERTY keyboard.
I really wanted a simple, utilitarian Samsung Jack, but apparently, those are smartphones and Rogers makes you buy a data plan for smartphones. My bill would be over $100 a month, and that shit won't work for me. So, here it is. My old Samsung really showing the wear and tear of three full years of abuse. I'm not sure I'll be using this phone for so long. Yeah, iPhone when I start making more money.
