    Cell Phones

    So, who has, or perhaps a better question is who doesn't have a cell phone here?

    I for one have never owned a cell phone. I have an iPod, laptop (PowerBook G4), Xbox, and PS2, so I'm not a techno-phobic. I personally don't get all the different plans and I hate all the charges. Anyway, now I realize I really want a cell phone. All my friends and family (yes, my grandma has a cell phone and I don't) have one and I'm tired of being out of the loop.

    Does anyone have suggestions on phones and/or plans that I should look into and what phones/plans does everyone have?

    Right now, I'm looking to score a really geeky and somewhat weak phone: the Samsung n270, a.k.a. The Matrix Reloaded phone! There are some pics of it below. It has web browsing, text messaging, and voice recognition and that's all! No camera, no mp3 playback, etc.....but damn it's sexy!!

    So, what do you guys have to say?

    I have a LG VX-6100 for about 2 years now. I has web-browsing, text messaging, voice recognition, a camera, pix messaging, and you could e-mail stuff to your computer, if you get verizon wireless it has get it now which is a service where you could download games and other types of programs for your cell phone. Its very durable too, i dropped it hundreds of times and it never broke. It has a bunch of scratches on it. Here are pictures:



    Verizon Wireless is my Carrier and I have the 450 minute plan (450 minutes every month, I don't even use all of it). After 2 years you start another plan and you get a free cell phone)

    Alright, thanks Supermariomp3. I may check that one out. I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the clam-shell style phone (I like sliders and candy-bar styles, but I don't know why) but it's probably cheap or free around where I live.

    How much do you pay per month or per minute or whatever?

    So you can only talk for like 7.5 hours a month? Or does it just run out after you've talked for 450min and then they start charging you per minute?

    Ugh, I HATE cell phones because of these damn cell phone companies that make their plans so convoluted, you get ripped off.

    Sorry, for that rant.

    Can you explain your plan a little bit more to me?

    And Darkprinny, what do you pay? I was sort of looking into a Go Phone because my credit isn't the best. I don't talk that much, so would it be a good idea?

    I don't know cuz I never used all the minutes, but since you only pay 39.99 a month for those 450 minutes i guess if you use more than 450 minutes its gona be more than 39.99. But no one really uses all the minutes. Plus its free to call on weekends and after 9:00 PM during the weekdays. Oh yeah text messaging and pix messaging is 25 cents a message but if you want UNLIMITED TEXT AND PIX MESSAGING its 5 more dollars to the monthly bill.
    I guess that sums it up. Sorry for the long post.
