Okay, this is the deal. My daughter texts like eight BILLION times a day.
You think I'm teasing don't you? Nope. I'm not. Promise!
Well maybe just a teensy weensy bit, but not much.....
So anyway, her PHONE is fine, but her charger went the way of the grave day before yesterday. I resisted the urge to hold a ceremony because she was giving me dirty looks. Turns out, she's got an odd phone, with an odd charger so to replace it we'd have had to get it off eBay and it would have cost like thirty bucks and I'm pretty sure her phone isn't worth that much anymore. I'm not even sure HOW it's still working as much as she's used and abused it, but that's another matter. She didn't really want to replace it so we had to do some creative thinking.
Hubby has two phones. Work and personal. I have one, daughter has one and my parents have one, all on our accounts. Soooo, this is what we decided to do.
Hubs personal cell is almost identical to daughters old one. So she took that one, he took my old one, and I went to get a new one since other than hers, mine was the oldest. I chose the Motorola Flipout just cuz it's too darn cute and it comes with an orange cover for the back and I love orange. I'm not a techno weenie (ahem like some people who live in our house) so I go for cute over function. I talk rarely, text a lot and that's about it, so really? Does it matter?
Finally got hold of the person we still like that works at the phone store and she suggested we upgrade another line and get the phone for the upgrade price. So that worked out well. Went tonight, picked up yet another phone, kept the broken one and did some research. The crazy phone is selling for over $200 bucks on eBay. Crazy isn't it? So when we get our taxes back, I'll send the broken one in and get it fixed, put it on eBay and make more than BOTH phones would have cost combined.
Funny how it all works out in the end. Now I just have to not DROP this one! Rawr! Who knew those little turds were that persnickety? I've had a Samsung Solstice for two years, have left it at WalMart three times, at Ross once, practically scored touchdowns with it, and not even a scratch! Oh well, another interesting 24 hours in the Riley household, but guess what? I gots a pretty new orange phone! Yay!
