    Before the discussion questions I have to rant...

    Went to alltel kiosk at walmart to get a new cell phone. I've had alltel for 3 yrs no problems, have 3 lines that my family shares under my name (much cheaper that way) and I have upgraded my phone 3 times, and my moms 3 times...and have paid my bill every month on time for three years straight...so you would think one could upgrade their phone whenver the heck they wanted to but nooooooooooooooo for some retarded reason I have to wait like 6 more months before I can get a new one even though I've had the current phone for a year...which makes no since at all b/c you'd think they would want you to upgrade and sign a new two year contract wouldn't you??? I'm goin to the real alltel tommorow to gripe. Oh and to top it off you can go to any walmart and get an alltel phone at completely different prices (one phone is free at one store and costs 40 at another)....and alltel sells them for double that...IDIOTS :lol:

    Okay so that got me thinkin, why cell phone provider do you use and what current phone do you have???

    My current phone is the Kyocera Se44...aka the slider:

    Is that a good phone??? Cuz it was one that I was looking at...but then decided I liked the LG LX5550 better....although now I'm in love with the Motorola V710...

    i almost got the LG lx5550 also, but decided it was too big and that i didn't really need the advanced features that it offered over the motorola.

    All phones are evil and mobile phones are created in the devil's rectum.

    I'm thinking of getting one though. :meh:

    we had the same problem with verizon wireless a few years ago and that is why we switched to sprint. the only way we could update our phones was if we paid the "msrp" which was always about $400 even if the phone was only $40. with our last phones we had to wait two years to get new ones and about a year and a half in all the phones stopped holding their charges so they were pretty useless. we switched to sprint

    Was happy with Cingular for two years. Trying out T-Mobile now. Not a fan of two year contracts.
