Hate the phone?

JPTaylor said in another thread that he hated the phone. I totally agree. I've never liked using or talking on the phone. I go out of my way to avoid it. Thank god for email. I'd even rather travel to meet face to face than use a phone if possible. Not sure what it is about it, but I agree...I loathe it. Cell phones as well. That's why I'm going on the "pay as you go" plan soon--I'll save $$ over my already minimal $20/month plan. I've ordered stuff off the internets that cost a few $$ more because their site didn't require me to "call for price".

I also hate any phone(the ringing especially). Bocephus if you're on the virgin mobile you can get it down to $15 every 3 months if they take it from you credit card (other wise its 20). Somehow I'm squeeking by on a cell phone for $5/month. Usually its off and lost somewhere.

I'm with T-mobile now so I think I'll keep my current phone and stay with them--if I pay $100 upfront I get 1000 minutes good for a year. basically $12/month for more minutes than my $19/month plan offers now (60 a month)

we probably end up paying about the same per minute in the end. Mine is 25 cents/minute for the 1st 10 minutes of a day then 10 cents after that. I sometimes have to add more minutes before the 3 months is up.

Doesn't that work out to $8.33 a month?

I would never photoshop her with gangsta dude! Any photoshop that may or may not ensue would be done in good taste and be complimentary.

Yup, phones blow.

cells most of all. I broke down and got one (family is all long distance) but it took me years to jump off that bridge.

My girlfriend hates talking on the phone. In the 10 1/2 months we've been together we might have had 2 conversations over 20 min.

we just e-mail our plans to meet up (neither have e-mail at home) We end up having to use the phone maybe 1 time a week.

i didn't know girls like that existed :D
