Something New... And Pink!

Hubby and I have been looking to change our cell phone plan for a while, so I went to U.S. Cellular (our carrier) yesterday- and came out very, very happy!!

I came out with a national plan (instead of the local plan we had), more minutes for us to share (yay!), and unlimited texting, picture messaging and Internet access on my phone (Hubby didn't want it)- for LESS money than we were paying before!!

We also got credit on our account because we were switching from Motorola Razr phones to something else. U.S. Cellular has this battery switch thing where you can take your old or dead battery in and they'll switch it with a new one for free. What they didn't anticipate was how many people had Razrs- they can't keep batteries for it in stock!! So they are letting people with that phone upgrade at any time (even if you're not eligible for a new phone yet), AND you get a $20 credit on your bill- per phone! So we both got really nice new phones and $40 off our next bill!

Here's my phone- isn't it super cute? I just love it! It kinda reminds me of a makeup compact, and that's about the size it is, too.

It's got a nice screen, and a QWERTY keyboard, which makes it SO much easier to text and do stuff on the Internet. It also has a pretty nice camera. I can play music with it, too, once I get a mini SD card.

Not too much else. It's raining today, so I'll be inside. I have to finish one thing for my FRIENDS swap package- it's taking longer than I thought to make!! I should be able to finish it today, though, and mail the box tomorrow. Everything else is all ready for it! I also plan to work on my Round Robin quilts. I'm the "hold-up" in the group right now, and I really need to get cracking!


  1. Every girl should have one! It is impossibly chic! Ann :)

  2. Jen, let me know how functional this is for internet, e-mail, etc--I'm thinking of *gasp* getting a real cell phone plan for next year, when I'm moving every 3 months, and US cell looks like a good deal--and they even have coverage in middle-of-nowhere Maine.
