Crystal and I decided to go in our our first big purchase together on Saturday and signed a two-year contract with Verizon Wireless. We got a family plan and share it with Crystal’s parents. We got all of the phones for free except for mine, only had to pay one activation fee and a GE employee discount of 20%. Not a bad deal.
Any of you who know me well should be shocked by the previous statement because I have been vehemently opposed to the thought of owning a cell phone for a long time. Especially since I have a significant other and the whole “he’s on a leash” thing (even though Crystal claims she would never use it for such purposes) that I don’t like. I have several reasons for coming around. Firstly, it is a large inconvenience to try to combine schedules with my fiancée without a cell phone. Secondly, my busy schedule demands for it as it is saves more time than it consumes. Lastly, Crystal allowed me to have a Motorola RAZR V3c which comes with a whole host of fancy techno-geek features. Are those reasons good enough to actually use a cell-phone? The 2-year contract with Verizon Wireless says they are.
