I'm also a Geek!

Ok so I've had my past cell phone for just over 2 years now. It was my big Christmas gift back when I got out of the Air Force.

Well my 2 year contract is over with and I thought it would be a good time to just get a new phone. Now, there is noting at all wrong with my old phone. Nothing at all. The battery still last a few days. It's just 2 years old. I've had a leather case on it the whole time, so it still looks new.

Now I got a brand new LG cu500. I even got my a new bluetooth headset, but I'm not going to walk around town with it in my ear. If anything it will be in my pocket 'till someone calls. Some of the reps that stop by work have them glued (it would seem) into their ear. Me, I'm not cool enough to get that many calls. So far I like it. It does everything a cell phone doesn't need to do. I can connect to the Internet faster than my Grandmama's dial up. Well a lot faster. I thought that since I'll be stuck with a phone for 2 years, I might as well go all out. There are just a few times that I like to go out and get something nice for my self. I did that with my sunglasses (and they got fucking lost at the last boat race...$210, didn't even last a year), and my work jacket (Carhartt FTW).

So yeah, it was a lil pain in the butt getting the phone. The account is in my mom's name. She is in Las Vegas right now.

But at last, I got my phone!

I sometimes wish I could get cellphone service here in the enchanted forest. My old phone (with its pull-up antenna) works sometimes if I climb a tree with it, but it's getting very old...

Let me know what kind of "range" the new model has!

I can't seem to find the community bulletin board, so (I hope you don't mind) I'm posting this here:

Yes, there's no need to walk around with a lump of plastic in your ear in case somebody calls.

It's not that you're not cool enough to get calls; it's that you're cool enough not to stress over it.

It's said that success isn't measured by who you talk to; it's measured by who you don't have to talk to.

Congratulations. I'm enough of a tech nerd that any new 'toy' is cause for celebration.

Sometimes the needs of a pregnant wife outweigh the needs of the many...

Dude, I just got this cool phone that I can carry around with me everywhere! Well, at least until the string reaches the end of its length and then I can't hear what my wife is saying into the can on the other end.

RockDog: well maybe up get change it up and get one of those cool bag-phones!

They should bring those back!
