    I agree.

    If I was in her position, I **** sure wouldn't be posting it online. It's sad really and I do feel for her a little bit.

    I've learned, you never post things on a dog forum that you don't want opinions or judged on.

    ETA- I have a smart phone, unlimited everything and only pay $40 per month. If I were you, I'd get a cheap throw away pay as ypu go phone. Hell, my car insurance isn't even $80 and I have full coverage.

    Totally off topic.... but out of curiosity what phone company do you use??? My husband and I pay about $175 a month for both of our phones together and I'm shopping around for better deals so we can drop our cost down a little.

    alrighty guys, carry on...

    In Canada, FIDO offers $57 unlimited nationwide calling, texting/MMS and 2GB of data which is enough for who constantly have wifi access at work or home. And there are small companies coming out like WIND and MOBILICITY with unlimited everything for less than 50 dollars. Other providers are slowly offering competitive phone plans as well.

    And like I said, if I am jobless, i would not be spending that fortune with my phone. I'd find the cheapest deal around. Or Pay as you go. Or better yet, NO CELFONE AT ALL until I find me a job.

    I dont know about the US phone carriers. But I'm sure they are far better than their canadian counterpart.

    And STEPHY is in Canada. Just saying.

    For many people, myself included, a cell is the only phone we have. In order to get a job you need a phone number to be reachable by prospective employers. So I personally would say a phone is essential to getting a job.
    Doesn't justify the $80/mo though since we have other Canadian members who have found better deals.

    I have to say keep in mind with changing carriers it usually takes TIME to switch numbers and I'm sure its her CURRENT number on job applications.

    ETA: The last thing you want to do during holiday hiring is miss the first call (not call back that day) because they usually go on to the next person if its retail.

    Food for thought, some carriers force you to pay a couple hundred bucks to cancel a contract if you signed on for a year or more. I have no idea if they do that in Canada, but I had to suck up a bigger than ideal monthly bill temporarily until I found a new job because I couldn't afford to cancel it.

    I'm pretty sure you can keep your number between carriers if you want. I think it might be a law in the US that they have to let you keep your number if you want. It takes no time at all to switch carriers-we've done it with little hassle.

    You know what amazes me though. All these people who do not know intimate details of what all is going on (yes she posts alot of it but I'm SURE there is some she doesn't post either because its mundane or not something you would think about) know SO much about what she can and can't do. You don't know EVERY detail of someones life from the internet. Just sayin'

    Mobilicity allows you to keep your number. For free.

    Don't complain in detail on the web about being penniless and people won't post suggestions, both friendly and unfriendly, for getting out of that state. Problem solved.

    yes but it takes TIME to switch them ;) or what if shes in a contract or a million other things. Heck some carriers make you buy certain phones. So that might have to be added.

    I am still trying to figure out how Come this thread is about her phone. We are talking about a false friend.

    Easy peasy don't clicky if ya think she is a liar . I happen to believe her and feel
    For her situation. You don't , why come here and he snippy.

    I know she has ruffled fur here ,but even if she did yall ripped on her in those threads.
    So why keep coming back to be viscious. Bad form.

    my point is everyone saying its so easy. What about Romys example? How do we know she hasn't looked INTO cheaper. I'm just saying being downright mean to people because you don't know their reasoning is getting ridiculous.
