I was going to upgrade my smart phone to the new Samsung Galaxy S3, but when you came up with your new Share Everything Plan, I decided against it. I know I can keep my unlimited data plan, for now, but if I don’t upgrade by 6/28, I won’t be able get a subsidized phone after that date, and keep my current plan. And that’s what pissed me off.
In one regard it may be a good thing. I don’t need a new smart phone. My old DroidX works fine. And I definitely don’t need to waste $300 for a new one. Heck, l’m not even convinced I need a smart phone at all. This staying connected all the time thing, and being inundated with a constant stream of news and propaganda, can’t possibly be a good thing.
There’s a lot more to living, and while it’s often spoken in jest, I honestly believe there is such a thing as “too much information (TMI)”!
So for now I’m going to keep Droid X, and decide at some [later] time what to do. Maybe I’ll just go back to a dumb phone, or even switch carriers. Virgin Mobile is offering smart phones at only a slightly higher price than your subsidized versions, and includes 1200 minutes of calling, with unlimited texts and data, for only $45 (half what you’re charging), and without a long term contract.
Who knows, I may yet decide to upgrade to a new smartphone phone before 6/28 (although that is highly unlikely), or just upgrade later and go with the 2 GB data limit.
I just can’t decide, but one thing I’ve learned in life is, sometimes it pays to wait before making tough decisions. Often times things work themselves out on their own. I’m just hoping this is one of those instances.
