Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |curiouscurious]

I need your help. It's a cell phone thing..

I am growing up.. and part of that is admitting my past failures. One of which is a credit rating that makes people want to throw themselves off of buildings. As such I am unable to get a standard cell phone contract (though it may be possible with a security deposit that I won't be able to afford until I'm gainfully employed again, so let's ignore that possibility for now). Distressing, true, especially since I *can* afford the payments. But try convincing them of that. :D

So the practical upshot is that I'm looking into prepaid phone services.. anyone have any experience with them?

Sorry, lovey. I bypassed that whole situation by going cell-only. Best of luck!

Mine is a Motorola Tracfone (purchased at Tarjay for $70.00) and I love it, actually. I live in horror of real cellphone plans, as they are much too complicated for a moron like me. Granted, I'm not on the phone very much, as beyond being a moron, I'm also hideously, violently shy and find it hard to talk on said phone. You know all this. :D But my Tracfone's never crapped out on me, and as long as I pay vague attention to the minutes, I couldn't be happier.

I'd actually been looking at a TracFone so that makes me feel better.. they've got a good deal on their website and Ebay's actually got some good TracFone deals.

Gracias baby :)

I had an ATT plan. The only draw back of it was the shitty connection. I remember for the Oscar party, getting everyone coordinated, I think I spent about $300+ on air time. In four days. But usually I'd throw 20 bucks a month at it and it would be perfect. :D

also? hi. *lick*

I like your icon.

I had a co-worker once who kept his door shut to cut down on noise from the copy room. A sign on the door said "This door is not closed."

One of my sales girls does a "Les Nesmen" when she wants to get some work done, you walk up to her desk and talk to her and she puts up her hand and points to the sign that says, "Please knock." The sign is in the shape of a small door.

Also.. hi hi hi... I miss you.


ATT has a good thing but I think I'm going to wait and go with that once I get a job since it's per-month plans and I'm not ready to commit to that yet.

If Kilties likes the other plan, then I would say go with that. The ATT thing was monthly, but if you put a couple bucks on the plan with left over minutes, the minutes would roll over and you wouldn't lose them. Which was nice.

But like I said, the connection was always shitty.

Just chiming in to say that it's somehow reassuring to hear that people I respect so tremendously, who appear to me so together, have futzed with their credit scores in a bad way. I've done the same thing.

Not that it's good that you have that problem. Just that it gives me some hope that I'll have it together one day, too.

(Why do I think you're laughing at the notion that you have it together?)
