Cell phone stuff really gets me irritated. I’m all for raging capitalism, but the cell phone companies are flirting with outright bamboozlement.

Take Verizon, for instance. They’re probably the leading cell service provider, but in my opinion they’re way overrated. They have the best coverage, other than that they are garbage.

I could go into graphic details and illustrations backing up my infallible argument, but I don’t feel like wasting any more time on the subject. But trust me I can back it up. Don’t believe me though, see if I care. I’m sure you already have a Verizon phone anyway.

I’ll be waiting for the T-Mobile wisecracks and “my Verizon cell is the greatest thing ever in the history of the world” rantings in the comments. But I mean it, if it was up to just me and I was starting from scratch I would seriously consider T-Mobile again.

Anyway, what brings all this on is today we went in to the Verizon store and got a new phone for my wife. She had an ancient brick that I had busted the antenna off of, and for 5 bucks more than a new antenna cost (with a renewed contract of course) we just got a decent new phone.

It seems really nice, it’s an LG VX 3200. Much better than the brick!

As an aside, ever since we got married, my wife’s cell phone has suddenly quit ringing. That thing used to be going off constantly, but now it sits peaceful and silent all day long. Interesting. She adds: Sigh!

I think that means you can call her again.
