Just over a month ago I dropped my cell phone and broke it. When I dropped it I really thought it would be alright because I've dropped it a million times without damage. Not this time...
It's really sad. I've had this phone for 4 or 5 years with the same battery. I love my phone. I can still dial out and people can still hear me but I can't hear them. Pretty lame. I've been slow at getting a new phone and now I've received my cell phone bill for a month that I didn't even get to use the phone during. Crap!
I had to decide whether to buy a new phone or just cut off service completely. Since BF and I are still unsure of the date we are leaving to Australia I don't really know how long I will need it for. I miss my phone :( I tried getting it put on a temporary suspension but Rogers was really stupid about it. They said they could put me on a temporary plan for $8/mo until I get a new phone but then I'd lose my current plan which is grandfathered and have to go with a contract. WTF>!>!
It's been really frustrating not having a phone because there are absolutely no payphones everywhere. I've been caught in many situations lately where I really wish I had my phone. Also, it keeps me entertained on my transit commuted every day.
So I picked out a basic phone that I can use until we leave. Finding it a good rate is the problem. I don't want to order it offline because it can take forever so I tried going to a Rogers dealer and he wanted to charge me $100 for a phone that is $69.99 on their website. I don't think so buddy! Today I got on the phone and called around to different stores that may carry Rogers phones and finally I found one that would sell me the phone for the same price as their site. Rogers video ... thank you. They have none in stock today but will be getting them in during the next few days. Woohoo!
