So my phone is dying. It's taken to calling random contacts even when no one touches it, not ringing through even though I have 5 bars and full reception, etc. Doesn't help that it was dropped in the toilet at one point and that it's almost 3 years old. Not bad for a cell phone.
We've been with Sprint since 1998. That's a LONG time in this day and age and, honestly, we've been pleased with their service. So much so that we do not have a land line. I saw no need for one since my cell phone met all of my needs.
So we each have cell phones. Our plan includes:
- 1400 shared anytime minutes
- unlimited text messaging on my phone and 300 text messages on MacGyver's phone
- data plan on my phone
- Sprint-to-Sprint service so it doesn't me and MacGyver anything to call each other
For all of that, we pay $120 or so. Not too bad.
But my phone is dying and it's time to get a new one. I'm torn between sticking with Sprint and getting an Instinct or going to AT&T and getting an iPhone. However, I don't want to see a significant increase in our cell phone bill, one way or the other. I know the Instinct and iPhone each have their own advantages but what it really boils down to is the cost of the plan.
