My Pixi ~

So my phone died...
And when I called Verizon about getting a new one and explained to them what I wanted they told me I could sign a new 2 year contract (AGAIN) and they would give me a $50.00 credit for whatever phone I wanted... So I went into the store to see the phones and I think I hear the person LAUGH when I pulled out my ghetto old school flip phone...
HEY! ~ No laughing... (Yes, those are teeth marks on the front)
 And when I OPEN the poor thing I can't see anything. I can't tell who I want to call, I can't even tell what the time is or the date...
So needless to say I need a new phone. However, I really did not want to sign a new 2 year contract OR get an ugly phone that was Free with my plan... Matt wanted me to upgrade to have unlimited texting so I asked Verizon if they hook up people who have been with them for a long time (10 PLUS years) and they pretty much told me they have the best service and so they have to charge a premium so no; no discount... So we went searching for my new phone. We hit up Cricket, AT&T, and a few other places that I can't remember. Matt decided to get online and do a little research. After a few days he found a phone and plan in my price range (cheaper than my previous plan with other options) he got the Verizon Palm Pixi and we are going to service it though PagePlus (I think) which uses Verizon Tower Service... so I am getting a WAY better phone on a way better plan for cheaper...
 I really only like phones for talking, but Matt got one that I can easily text with and surf the net with too... he also made sure my plan would have that as well; I think he thinks I want to carry my phone around with me all day like "normal people do". ~ Ugh, Hello Stay at Home Mother of TWO here... not going to happen...
Let's just see when I decide to learn how to use it... 
after I get my hot pink cover he promised I may be a happy camper again!! :)
CAUTION PEOPLE : Now, DON'T go getting ALL excited about getting in contact with me... I am still going to suck at remembering my phone and picking it up... remember who you are dealing with! :)

It's pretty :-) I have you and Matt down under M&M in my phone. I really don't want to separate you two but since you have your own phones I guess I'm going to have to. *sigh* Way to mess up my phone contacts! (This is said with as much sarcasm as I can muster!). Good luck with your new phone and I can't wait to see the hot pink cover!!
