ANDDDDD..... I terminated my contract with Verizon. I was going to switch to AT&T and get the iPhone because my brother has that phone and he absolutely loved it! BUTTTT.... After spending about 35 minutes there, the AT&T guy ran a "credit check" and found out that I would have to pay a $500.00 deposit in addition to paying $210.0o0 as the out-the-door price for the iPhone. Basically, I would have to pay them over $700.00 to even start a contract with them. Call it what you want, but I call it highway robbery. I was waiting for them to start charging me for the air I was breathing while standing in their store!!! I explained to them that I did not have bad credit because I don't even have a credit card - I don't want a credit card! And IF I DID have bad credit, I would lose my job since I work for the government. Also, why couldn't they call up Verizon Wireless? I have never been late on a payment for the entire time I was a customer of Verizon!
Needless to say, I did NOT go with AT&T. Quite upset, I drove away and headed for home. I had to do something though.... I needed a new (working) phone. My crazy, heavy schedule demands that I have a means by which people can contact me. I practically live out of my car.
Anyways, I began to drive home when I saw a Sprint store on my left. I decided to pull in, and try my luck there. When the Sprint guy asked what he could do for me, I told him that before we go any further, he might as well run a credit check on me now to avoid possibly wasting time. When he told me I came up approved and that I wouldn't have to pay any type of a deposit, I got so excited! He even worked some magic and waived the activation fee for me!
I started to look at the Instinct (Sprint's version of the iPhone)... BUT THEN I was gloriously directed over to the Palm Treo Pro.... the brand new version of the phone I had. In fact, it just came out about 2 weeks ago. It was love at first sight. I walked away that night with a beautiful black Palm Treo Pro. Fully loaded with the Windows Operating System, Microsoft Office, Text Messaging, Instant Messengers, web browser, games, ring tones, alarms, calendars, etc and etc!
Now if only all my pictures had transferred over like the guy said had happened.... I can't find them anywhere - they disappeared. And my contacts folder won't open. I will be making a tiny visit back there soon to get that figured out.
Isn't it pertyyyyy!?!
