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.
