CrackBerry Delight

My beloved cell phone broke 2 weekends ago. My bf actually broke it on the way up to a weekend visit in Erie, where I moved from to come here to the burgh. I didn't let him know that he was the one to break it though cause I didn't want him to feel guilty. So I played dumb once it broke and just said "that's weird, I don't know how this thing broke." I really didn't budget to have to pay for a new phone but problems come unexpectedly so I had no choice but to buy a new one. I have Verizon and really enjoy their service. I have been wanting to buy a Blackberry for quite some time now. Its convenient since I am always stuck in airports and bored. So I can just cruise the internet now while I wait. Well at least that's what I thought.

I got the phone pretty cheap. Its a $400 phone, and after I got all the discounts and rebates, I will have only paid $100 for it. Not too shabby. Maybe I had to high of expectations though, but it seems as if the internet is so limited as to what I can do that its almost not worth having. I cant check any of my emails, I cant go to Youtube or Myspace. Nothing. I have no internet at home anymore, so this was supposed to be helpful. I am paying $100 monthly for this new plan and I just feel that I am not getting what I am paying for. I am thinking about taking it back and getting something else, which I can now do thanks to their new 30 day guarantee.

I have been thinking about switching companies and getting to iPhone, and since they just dropped their prices for it, this seems like it might be a good idea. My plan will be much cheaper, almost $20 per month cheaper. Plus the phone is much cooler. So I am not sure what I am going to do yet. But or all those people that have a Crackberry, I am not sure if I am doing something wrong or what, but hopefully the phone will start to grow a little more on me.

Beware of the cancellation fee. It's the one thing stopping me from getting an iPhone.
