All hail, modern technology!

So, I'm ditching my poor, pathetic cell phone. I have Alltell service, which is an oxymoron in much the way "military intelligence" is--the phone drops calls at least a half-dozen times a day, it gets no reception in places like Boston and Washington, DC, and if I stand in one certain corner of the computer room upstairs, it thinks I'm roaming.

The phone itself is a brick, like something out of the 1970s--good to hit people with, not so good to place phone calls on.

As it turns out, T-Mobile offered me a new phone for free, and the same plan I'm on now for $59 a month less. And to sweeten the pot, they threw in text messaging, Internet access, unlimited email access, and unlimited AIM access--still for $59 a month less than I'm paying Alltel. And I'll have the same phone number.

So. New phone and new service should be up and running end of next week. Goddamn, why've I been spending so much money with Alltel?
