impatiens Posted May 22, 2009 Share Posted May 22, 2009 I need to set up a new phone in DC because I'm moving from Toronto. I am excited at the prospect of no long distance and no roaming charges within the US. Any suggestions for carriers and plans? Contract or pay as you go? Does anyone actually live without a cell phone? I've had one since ninth grade so I can't imagine living without one, but I recently discovered that one of the associates at my office has managed to do without one through undergrad, law school, and a few years on the job. :shock: I'd love to get a Blackberry but I'm not sure I want to deal with a $90/mo phone bill (based on an estimate I did on the AT & T site) and I might regret being chained to my e-mail. I want bbm to keep in touch with a few friends and I'd love a qwerty keyboard because I hate texting/T9 on a normal phone, but mostly I want a Blackberry for vanity.... and so I think it's slightly not justifiable, especially if wireless internet abounds and everyone schleps their laptop around anyway. I've heard that Columbia has a deal with AT &T for discounts... does anyone know if SAIS/JHU has a similar setup or if this is a common thing they have with most universities?
