I am in a conundrum with my cell phone. My present phone, a Motorola v60t, has seen better days. The threaded socket in the antenna mount is totally stripped, and it takes about .1lbf to remove the antenna mount. Not cool.
I have long been an AT&T Wireless customer, and I have no real reason to switch from their service–I have had solid service from them, and the prices are low enough to have kept me from switching to a lower-cost carrier. [There has been value in keeping the same cell number lo these many years; while cell number portability is now a reality, it’s not a great concern to me at this point.]
My issue comes, of course, with Cingular’s impending purchase of AT&T Wireless. I want a new phone, but the great thing about my present phone is that it’s mine, and I am not under contract to AT&T Wireless on it. I can change my plan on a whim.
I know what I want–I want one of the new Motorola 3G wireless phones. Wiggin’ metal sweet. I just don’t know whether or not to make the leap to get the phone only to have it not be workable when Cingular takes over.
