Switching phone plans.

We're planning on switching from Verizon to Sprint. The reason being, we're paying about $130 a month for Verizon with basic phones. I have a Razr and he has a first generation Chocolate phone, it just doesnt make sense for us to pay so much money for basic phone service.

We found that Sprint released a new family plan that's about the same amount but it includes a full data plan. Meaning you get Sprint TV, Navigation, Internet, Texting, and 1700 minutes (but just for land lines, all phone calls to any mobile phone no matter the provider is free). As well as Martin's Sprint account has a special discount on it that would bring our bill down to $100. $100 a month for full data?! HELL YES!

The reason why his bill has a special discount (and is the most discount you can get from Sprint) is because he registered for his air card during a promotion deal assuming the the promotion would go towards the air card, but it didnt. It was only for phone lines. So they held the promotional price for him in case he ever decided to switch to Sprint. Nice move Sprint!

With that said, I have my heart set on the Palm Pixi. My Verizon upgrade is due next month so I thought I'd be able to cancel next month since last time I upgraded was in 2007 for my Blackberry Pearl. But turns out, my contract wont be up til June. The good news is, my cancellation fee today would be $80. Which beats $175 that Cingular charged us. But that's only because my contract end date is coming up. Martin's contract wont be up until 2011, so his cancellation fee is about $175 or $180. Which sucks.

Now, I assumed that I would get my phone next month. My Razr is on its 4th charger and 2nd battery. But Martin's telling me that if I get a job by next month I'll be able to get my phone *insert fuming face here*. WHAT?! I understand that maybe jumping to get my phone right now would be a bad idea, but hey, you told me I get a new phone in February! I tried to talk him into letting me get my phone and when that didnt work I went into spoiled brat mode. Which he handled calmly, the same way he always does. How does he not give in?! How does he just smile at me every time I throw tantrums because I dont get what I want?! Grrrr.

I understand his point of view, but I'm just itching to get a brand new phone already! I went yesterday to see my phone at Sprint since I was deciding between the Palm Pixi or the Samsung Moment. And I fell in love with the Palm Pixi! It has REAL web browsing, FREE apps (including Pandora, Flickr, Facebook, etc), 360 screen rotating, an awesome phone, its sleek and small and its just amazing. God, I want that phone!

Being married is so difficult when you're broke and you want things, this "team work" stuff is going to take some getting use to.

About

foolishxlady A blog about my experience as a military girlfriend. My boyfriend of 5 1/2 years recently decided to join the United States Air Force. I have a more private journal about this (since I dont want to violate OPSEC) here.

This was originally suppose to be a blog about my experience as a military girlfriend & fiancée. But two weeks before my finance's BMT graduation, he was discharged for medical reasons. So, yeah, that sucks! But he still has the option to re-enlist after two years. They want to make sure he's fully recovered before coming back.

This blog, however will still be where I write about being a newlywed. We got married on December 28th, 2009 in Las Vegas, NV!

With that said, we're not married and since the military thing didnt work out, we're still on a struggle as to what we're going to do from here on out. So if you're interested in hearing about peoples struggles, you've came to the right place!
