What I mean is, my last phone was a Blackberry Pearl. Yeah. I got it 2008-ish, I think. Ive never had a smartphone, because I couldnt afford it. The Blackberry worked, my cell bill is like $20 added on as a family line to my parents bill. Compare that to the the cost of the new smartphones, plus somewhere up to $100 a month for a data plan? No thank you.(Emphasis added.)
But my Blackberry is finally dying (NOOOO!), there are lots of alternative options to traditional overpriced phone plans (T-mobile $30, Straight Talk $45), thanks to Obamacare Im not paying for birth control every month now, and the Nexus 4 was coming out. A high-end phone at a relatively low price ($299 vs its $550 ATT Optimus G counterpart), that gets upgrades straight from Google.
So I got one.
So, since you and I are now responsible for paying for this unmarried student's birth control pill habit, she now has the wherewithal to get herself a top-of-the-line phone (only $300!??!? Tell me more about this fantastic deal!!!) with a data plan.
Meanwhile, my employer dropped the family healthcare plan that I favored and reduced my options to precisely two, my commute is now at least twice as expensive as it was four years ago, and I have a $20 TV I got from Craigslist, no cable TV, and the barebones cell phone family plan. And when I want condoms, I buy them myself.
But hey, ERV, glad I could help you out with that. Enjoy.
