I need a new cell phone plan and provider.
I'm planning on not using a home phone and just using my cell phone.
these are the current plans and prices i'm looking at:
cingular: 450 anytime minutes, 5000 nights/weekends (9pm-6am) , plus rollover minutes for $29.99
or 900 anytime minutes for $44.99
verizon: 450 anytime minutes, unlimited nights and weekends (mon-fri 9pm-6am, weekend is midnight saturday to midnight sunday), $31.99
or 900 minutes for $47.99
nextel (sprint): 450 minutes, unlimitied nights/weekends (7pm - 7am), $32.79
or 900 minutes - $49.19
sprint: 450 minutes, unlimited nights/weekends (7pm - 7am), unlimited mobile to mobile, $35.99
or 900 minutes - $53.99
i'm thinking i like the 900 minutes on cingular with rollover minutes. i don't like the 9pm-6am nights/weekends, but i do like the rollover minutes. i could probably get by with 450, but i don't want to hassle with increasing the minutes later and not get my company discount if i change plans after i quit my job and start using the phone more since i won't be using the phone at work for calls during the day.
i'm a guy, so i have no idea how people go over 450 minutes. that's a lot of friggin' talking. but i guess i'll just get the 900 minutes to be safe.
all plans require a 2-yr contract.
is it even worth it to get a blackberry or anything like that, or should i just wait and see if i really need it?
i'm thinking i'll go by a cingular place tomorrow at lunch and check out the phones they have, but i have to order online for my company discount.
and cingular models that are just plain crappy?
any cingular models that will be good and last?
/heading home, so i'll check back in a bit
