Remember my post about defying my tarot reading about getting the iPhone? I pulled the 9 of Cups when I asked if it’s best to get it right now. This card just confirmed that it’s OK. The problem was, they can’t give me the discounted price because I just got a BlackBerry Bold (which was defective, mind you) last March 2009. And if I insist on getting it, it would cost up to $600 just for the phone alone. Well, the other option wasn’t explained to me the last time.
There is a way around it. If I change my personal plan to a family plan and add a line, I can still get the phone for $199. It’s a sweet deal. And with my Employer’s 17% monthly discount, my total monthly bill would still be less than $130.
So anyway, I just got my new iPhone 3Gs 16G (white) and I’m guilt-free. I miss the simplicity of the iPhone. Now I can easily sync everything from my mac, surf with the enlarge-able safari browser, make use of Maps again, and try the new available apps. I was totally crippled when I gave up my old iPhone. I thought I could survive with the others, but there’s just something with me and Apple products. LOL.
So do I blame the 9 of Cups for this purchase? No. I thank it. And yes, I’m a mess.
