Kimberly and I have both recently gotten new cell phones. The Motorola RAZR V3. It’s available in any color you want as long as that color is black… I mean gun metal.
Overall, we’re pretty happy with the phones so far (though the UI sucks – I could rant for hours about everything that’s wrong with mobile phone UIs, but I’ll spare you that for now).
In the process, Kimberly ended up switching to Cingular / AT&T / Ma’ Bell or whatever you want to call them. This followed, let us call it, a “confrontation” between Kimberly and her old cell phone (guess who won).
The best part is after the initial fees, her bill is actually going to be lower. Rock on. As a bonus, we’re both “iPhone ready” if / when we decide to upgrade to one of those.
If you happen to be around the Kenosha area (hey – it’s not that far of a drive from Chicago), our wonderful service provider is Superior Wireless.
My brother happens to work there, but I’ll guarantee you that you will get good service regardless of who you are. The best part is that all of the employees are very down to earth people who aren’t going to try to bullshit you into spending money you don’t need to. They also won’t try to sell your grandfather the latest blackberry (unless he actually wants it, of course). And if you’re going to get screwed by a phone company, I’ve found Cingular to be the least painful.
