New Phone From T-Mobile

September 24, 2008

No, not the phone you’re thinking of. I mean the Motorola flip phone that arrived today so that I could move my cheapskate cellphone business from TracFone to T-Mobile.

Since I posted about that decision a few days ago, a couple of things have changed. One is that I went for a slightly less basic phone than the one I had in mind: a Motorola V195s seemed like a good deal at $30 (no contract required), given that it included a $25 prepaid card.

The other thing that’s changed is that I have formed an opinion about T-Mobile service, and it’s not a positive one. All I needed was for the phone to be activated and my existing cell number to be assigned to it. I spent hours on the phone, and spoke with about half a dozen people altogether. All seems to be well now.

But, given that Android for now means T-Mobile, my enthusiasm for an Android phone has diminished. Of course, there’s plenty of time for that to change.
