I’ve posted about cell phones a few times now. And I’ve established that the technology has passed me by. I’ve gotten some good advice each time about how to find the best rates, and which phones I should buy. I’ve searched and searched for the best rates & phones.
I still haven’t made any decisions, but I’m starting to realize that the reason it’s so hard for me to make a decision is because I simply don’t think I value mobile data accessibility enough to pay the going rate. Even with the 19% discount from Verizon my employer provides, I still can’t find any plans at a price point that make me feel really good about it.
I’m probably just expecting something unreasonable (like my wife, who pays Sprint only $30/month and gets unlimited everything – although her phone sucks too much to really take advantage of it…).
I’ve never had a cell phone with data access, so I’m sure I don’t know what I’m missing. I guess I’m just a little skeptical right now that I would really benefit from a data plan, which is why I’m hesitant to pay for it. I feel like I should value data access – everybody that’s anybody has a data plan these days, right?
anyway, I still hate the cell phone industry.
