Stilettos and Diapers: I got a new phone, and of course, got a deal.

8.31.2009

I got a new phone, and of course, got a deal.

I am so excited that I got a new phone! I have been debating it for over a month, and I finally did it! I bought this Blackberry Storm.

Wanna hear about my good deal? Well, when I started looking, it was going to be $100 with my new every 2 discount. Not too bad for a new phone, but I didn't want to pay it. I went and played with the thing like 5 times just making sure that I would love it. I went back the day before I was leaving for FL and found out it was on sale; I could get it for free! I was totally sold, until she told me that in California I have to pay tax on the MSRP ($500).

Um, no thanks. I have a plan to scam Verizon, and I'm not afraid to use it.

When I got to FL, all I could think about is buying a phone! I went to Verizon and what do you know? No crazy California tax, even though that is my billing address. Winner, winner! I got my sweet new phone, and a silicone case with white damask for $19. Happy dance!

The only problem now is that I don't really know how to use it. If my hubby were here, he would have had the whole thing figured out by now. I can't even change the ringer, and I get little dings whenever anyone does anything on Facebook. And why can't I reply to anyones tweets? Someone please help. I know, I know, read the owners manual. I just don't want to.

Sorry for my bloggy absence, but I am having so much fun with my family at the beach. I am getting a great tan and my belly is pleasantly plump from copious amounts of snack food. Cooper is having a blast with his cousins. Oh, and the baby? The reason I came here? Still hanging out with her momma. Not interested in entering the world...not yet anyway. Hopefully I will have news soon!

  1. I've been on the hunt for a new phone, too! I am on my 3rd pink razr, haha! I am just not ready to part I guess. I'm going to have to check out this new phone. Let me know if you figure it out!

  2. That is a fabulous deal! I'm always so impatient when I find a new phone I want, so Verizon gets all of my dollars.... Comcast, on the other hand, gets scammed up and down by us, so I don't feel so bad :-)

  4. Wow... I buy all my phones on eBay, and I've still never managed a deal that good!

  5. Sounds like you're already loving the new phone- I love when good deals make something even more enjoyable than it would be if you just bought it without a deal.

    And I'm also glad that it's not just me who feels like that =)

  6. Oh girl...i was so excited about my new Storm and now three weeks in it died, and I just got another new storm. This new one is slow as Christmas! I'm thinking of taking it back and demanding that they not sale it to anyone else :) How is yours treating you so far?

  11. Color me jealous!!

    I'm still trying to come up with reasons to hubby as to why I need such a phone...besides "everyone else has one!" That doesn't go over so well! ;)

  12. You are so lucky to get a new phone! I have put it out there to my husband that I want one for my birthday, so we will see...

    Thanks for your comment about my vinyl! I bought a pre made one at Target last Christmas and when I took it off there was a little sticky residue that I had to scrub off.

    The vinyl that I have bought on etsy is a higher quality vinyl and I have had no trouble taking it off.

    XOXO
