New Toy!!!!

Oooo, and before I forget, I got a new phone (LG VX6100) today.

Verizon may not be the cheapest carrier out there, but their service area can't be beat (around here at least if you're so far out in the sticks that they don't work, then nothing will work), they've always managed to do right by us in the customer service deparment and this time was no exception. They hooked us up with a bunch of good, new, and most importantly free phones and I was able to get one of them for myself (I had just replaced my previous phone in February after it broke I broke it for the 3rd time). Following parkero's lead, I called up their customer care line and complained (I am wheel hear me squeak) until they credited our accounts so I could re-download all of my old ringtones and games to the new phone (woo-hoo) for free. So I ended up with a bunch of new phones for the business and they were all free.

Sure there are cooler phones out there with tons of niftier features, but this one is good for now and it has all the features I wanted, plus it's new, plus it's free (free is very important this time of year ;). Besides, I should be able to upgrade again in a year or so (I basically switched numbers between my old phone and one of the new ones so that one will be due for an upgrade in about a year at which point I'll switch them back ;). It's days like that when it's nice to have a business and/or business account.

The only thing better than new toys is free new toys :)


So you have a new #?
Heh, nope, if I did that you and half of my friends would take another 5 or so years to memorize the new number :-p.

I switched the physical phones and left the numbers the way they were, so the other number dials my old phone and my number goes to the new phone.
Good job squeaky!!! Its funny that verizon is the same up here in CT, a couple more bucks a month but it works just about everywhere. and if it doesn't work, you are basically in a safe nuclear bomb zone.

Geek Kudos to you!
Heh, of course now I'm thinking about going back to my old phone since it has a few features I prefer.

Buying new toys is hard when you have fairly stringent standards for what you want in them.
I use Verizon too and I've never been happier with my service. Their customer service department kicks ass AND I got my phone for only $4. Ut may as well have been free! I have a LG as well, but an earlier model. I'm so happy with it.
Yup. I've never had any major problem with Verizon that they didn't work to fix very quickly. I've had to deal with a few other carriers in the past and none of them were anywhere near that accomodating (and just downright friendly most of the time)
