I've been receiving e-mails from Verizon lately letting me know that my "new every two" plan was due and I was eligible for a new phone.
Now, I'm pretty practical. I kind of think, if it isn't broke, then don't fix it. And my phone was not broken. I had an LGvs3800.
This turned out to be an excellent phone. Every other phone I had was always dead or dying well before my two year contract was up. Not this one though. My "New every two" was up on August 16, 2008 and this phone STILL works.
I just started thinking about an upgrade and how nice it would be. A few weeks ago I mentioned it to J that I would be interested in upgrading and he basically said "Go for it." But, again, I couldn't get past that I really didn't NEED it. I finally talked myself into it by telling myself that I should upgrade now while my phone still worked, in case the new phone (or J's phone) decided to die. Then we would have a back up in my old phone.
So I visited Verizon's website and found a phone that I really wanted. I had already decided I wanted another LG since my last one lasted so long. I picked out the LGenV3.
I knew I didn't want a touch screen. I also wasn't so sure about the full keyboard thing (now I kind of like it, after playing with it for a day). But this one really stood out. Then I checked the price and saw that you got $50.00 off if you purchased the phone online. Nice! Also, after a nice long chat with a Very helpful Verizon employee (Charlston) online I found out that I could also take off my $50.00 credit for an upgrade. Nice (again)! I ended up with a $129.99 phone for $29.99. Triple, Nice!
So far I'm very happy with my new toy. I'll probably put an update up once I get to know her better.
Now, should I name her like Cate did?
