Closer to the latter tenth, actually.
So, I'm thinking about getting a cell phone.
Prepaid or no contract, obviously, as anyone looking at my credit report would either collapse in hysterical laughter or call security to get me the fuck out of their store. Or, possibly, both at the same time.
There's a handy comparison chart listing options on the east coast, but most of the providers do Chi as well. And it's no longer just fly-by-night companies offering those sorts of plans -- not sure why I remember them as being a huge scam, but I'm working to throw this off -- but Virgin Mobile (too much for the young people, I think), Verizon (kind'a spendy, making it harder to not think of these as scams) and the one I'm leaning towards, AT&T's Go Phone.
There is a monthly fee rather than the pay-as-you-go style usually associated with prepay, but they offer free, unlimited nights and weekends. The actual prepay phones, um, you have to prepay.
Anyone have any experience with any of these? Only thought of it, really, because of the publicity about the disposables coming out. . .
Also considered the TracFone, since I send 'em $25, they send me a phone, but since I ain't got a land line at the moment -- or a permanent residence, I'm still crashing on my sister's couch -- what they provide seems like too little.
On the other hand, 30 day money-back guarantee, so if it sucks, back it goes.
Anyway, helpful suggestions appeciated. I know about the (possible) brain cancer thing. No worries, I'm a Gulf War vet. That'd be the least of my worries.
Did finally submit the paperwork to get the paperwork the VA needs to do their paperwork to get me that Comprehensive Physical. And did lots of cleaning. It was a productive weekend. Why I didn't really post here, actually.
