My Cellphone

Currently, I am the not-so-proud (or pleased) owner of a Nextel i730 cellphone.  I have owned said phone since February (or maybe March, I know that it was winter) of 2005.  Thanks to the Nextel service plan, this phone has been replaced two or three times and fixed approximately a dozen times, free of charge to me, other than my regular fix-it monthly expense.  For the last year, I have been in the market for a new cellphone, but lately it is becoming unbearable to own a phone that does not even work properly (J.R. and I own only cellphones, no house phone for us).  J.R. would dearly love to upgrade us both to iPhones, or some similar smart phone.  I however, am a little nervous about turning myself loose with such an expensive phone after all that I have put my current phone through.*

Thanks in advance!

  1. […] My cellphone was found. One of my guesses regarding its whereabouts was correct, as it was in the snow outside of my in-law’s barn.  I […]
