New "Free" Phone
I got a new cell phone today. Every 2 years, Verizon encourages it's subscribers to re-up for another 2 years. Part of this encouragement includes a "free" phone. Of course they would like you to upgrade to something more pricey, with lots of features that increase your monthly bill, but it is possible to get a relatively free phone.
I upgraded to a phone that has Bluetooth. It's not that I want one of those things stuck in my ear, but instead, I think there is a way to access the internet with my laptop using Bluetooth and the cell phone. This would come in handy when I am somewhere without WI-FI. We shall see. The phone is free, once I receive my $50 rebate, and it has some other features that my "old" phone didn't have. (Like picture caller ID.) This will come in handy when I don't have my glasses to read the name of the caller. I will see their picture. I get to choose the pictures. That could be amusing.
The battery for my cell phones tends to wear out after 2 years, so this works out just fine. A free phone is cheaper than a $60 battery.
