I need a phone!

Post by bassnailer »

I broke my cellphone, and the folks at Bell want to sell me another fone for like a hundred bucks, change my plan around and try to rope my into another few years contracts. Rubbish. I hate dealing with these folks. All I need is another Bell phone that I can put my sim card into and start using. It doesn't have to be nice, I don't need to get on the internet with my phone. I just want to make calls and text. Does anyone have an old phone laying around that they would like to get rid of for cheap?

I'll see if I have anything at work. It will likely be a blackberry though. That ok?

Yeah, that's ok. As long as it works! I'll probably end up breaking it in 9 months anyway. (I work in construction, so I tend to break things easily).

Do you know about Sonim?

When you own your own hardware, the cel service providers lose their grip on you...

"What plan are you on?"
"Oh, I don't have a contract."
"Did you know you're eligible for a free flip phone?"
"No thanks, I own my hardware."
"I'll transfer you to Customer Retention..."

Once you're not in the grip of a contract to provide you with a phone, you can get any reasonable demand you ask for. About twice a year I call up Bell Mobility and say, "I've noticed Rogers is offering a feature I don't have. Could you please add that to my plan?"
