Well after my old Samsung Link drowned in the washing machine and then scorched in the dryer, I had to head out and replace it. After looking around at a couple of options, I decided to get aâ€¦ wait for itâ€¦ another Samsung Link but this time in red. They are now under $70 and the phone has survived a bit of abuse (Wendy put it on the roof of the Festiva and drove away). Itâ€™s not a Blackberry but it does give me access to my e-mail and the web when I need it. It may be my favorite phone that I have ever owned.
The one thing that I never liked about it was it didnâ€™t come with a carrying case. I tried several but I never found one that I really liked or really fit it that well. Ironically the night that I wrecked my original phone, I finally found a great case at Walmart by foneGEAR. It provides a snug fit my phone, has a magnetic latch on it but still offers easy access. It lists for $20 but I picked on up on sale for $10.
Oh yeah, I get asked all of the time how I like Virgin Mobilityâ€™s service in Saskatchewan. Virgin uses SaskTelâ€™s coverage map which means that I get coverage all over Saskatchewan (except at the cabin). The only thing I donâ€™t like about Virgin is that I wish they would e-mail my bill (rather than text me) and their website is really inconsistent. We have been using Virgin for over a year and I have never seen a website that is so hit and miss as you are adding services or paying your bill. That being said, any time I have had to call them about anything, they have been great.
