New cell phone

Samsung r610 I generally upgrade my cell phones about every five years or so.  To say I am a late adapter in this area would be an understatement.  Not only that but Wendy’s cell phone is almost 8 years old so she was due for a new one as well. 

After looking around for months, I decided to get a Samsung r610 and make the move to Virgin Mobile.  Believe it or not, it is also my first phone with a camera in it.

Everyone seemed shocked that I didn’t get a iPhone or a Blackberry but I have my iPhone touch which handles my e-mail, schedule, and has a enough games on it to keep Mark happy when he has to wait on me so I don’t really need a smart phone.

What I liked about Virgin was their rates and the fact that it used the SaskTel network in province.  While Fido and Rogers work okay in the cities, I need to leave the major highways once in a while and with Virgin I don’t have to sacrifice any coverage.  Now I just need to figure out how to send a photo via e-mail that I take.  So far, no success.  I hate to think that I need to crack a manual.

    Funny you posted this. I bought this phone last week after having my old cell phone for 4 years with Virgin. I researched it for sometime online, and so far have been pleased with it. I can’t seem to send photo’s either. If you ever find out, please let me know. ;)

    I was sold that phone with a promise of an online 45$ cashback that they said “oops, I’m sorry” when I went to get. Hung on the phone, got transferred all over, still no credit weeks later after someone on the phone said “we’ll activate it next week.”

    Also keep an eye on your charges. Mine is a pay as you go and I find sometimes money will disappear off the tops ups…50 cents here and there, when I have made no calls on it.
