Got a new phone

I dropped my old one by accident so I got a new one along with a phone case, screen protector, and a new popitsocket! So far I’m really enjoying my new phone the phone was $49 the case $12 the screen protector $13 and the popitsocket $10 and since I’m married to a Walmart associate I got a 10% discount

Enjoy your new phone. I’ve been thinking of replacing mine since I think there is something wrong with the speaker in it. I get static when listening and it’s often hard to understand whomever I’m talking to.

My smartphone was $150 + taxes + shipping. I ordered it from Consumer Cellular by calling them. I didn’t have to do anything. They handled it all. I didn’t have to take the SIM card out of my old phone and put it in the new one.

I got an $850.00 iPhone12 for $150.00. That was in February. I’m still trying to figure out if there’s a catch. I got it from AT&T who consistently has bad customer service in my experience.

I called them three days ago and the woman was cagey. I asked her why I cannot see my wireless phone account online and I also wasn’t sure about how much my monthly bill is. She assured me I can see my account online and told me my monthly bill was $95.00! I had to get off the phone because my counselor was at the door.

My sister helps me a little with my money sometimes and when I told her my monthly bill was $95 she flew off the handle. Got mad and told me even people with great jobs and money don’t pay almost a $100 a month for telephone service. And I’m living off a janitors pay. This is typical of AT&T in my experience and I have to get on the phone with them again and straighten this out.

Yeah, thats a lot. You’re probably paying off that phone in your bill. I bought my own phone then got service for $15.00 a month. Mine is prepaid though.

That’s good. I don’t have a car anymore and have to use the public buses, so any business I can do over the phone or online is what I do.

I was able to go cheap because I don’t use my phone for internet or anything much. I use my computer for that. I just use the wifi in the house for internet anyway.

I don’t have cable TV anymore either. I use an antenna. What I was paying for cable and the landline phone I used to have, I spend on a smartphone and save some money.
