Phone update…take 20

Hello hello!  Happy Tuesday!  So I’ve discussed my phone/internet issue quite a bit and have FINALLY come to a conclusion.  Since my current situation (phone with Cricket and internet hotspot with T-mobile) works great for my situation, usage, and budget I’m just going to get a new unlocked iPhone and stick with my current plan.  I heard really bad things about Sprint coverage (as well as T-mobile) so I didn’t want to switch if what I have works.  If, when I go to Europe this summer, I need to switch providers or figure something else out I will then do it at that point in time.

After much debate, I got the new iPhone 7!  What?  Me, with the latest technology…I feel so cool now.  =)  I went with this because I do keep phones forever so I thought I might as well get the latest and greatest since I’ll have it now for quite awhile.

Be prepared for better pictures in the near future – I don’t have the phone yet as I get it this afternoon so until then you get a blank post just telling you of my update. =)

Have a great Tuesday friends!

Happy Thursday friends!  Welcome back!  As I left you on the edge of your seat yesterday waiting to hear about my internet and phone debate, I have yet to come to a conclusion or do anything other than scope out some other options. However, I plan on discussing those today.  And I know most people probably don’t think or shop around this much for these services but, well, I’m not average and really want a good deal because I stick with providers (and devices) for a long time.

I left off last week talking to T-mobile and Verizon about phone plans, data hotspots, and international data packages.  Quick review, right now I have Cricket Wireless for my phone and T-mobile hotspot  for my internet.  Both have been working great but I am needing a new phone so thought I would check what else is available because I need international data for this summer and possibly more hotspot data.  Cricket does not offer international plans and there has been some conflicting information about T-mobiles hot spot international plan but I *think* it will work overseas for ZERO upgrade charge! =)

“ET Phone Home”

TGIF!  Woohoo!  We made it to the weekend!  How is everyone?  I’m doing good.  Glad it is the weekend, that’s for sure.  Since I’m not training anymore, I don’t have to get a long run in.  AHHHH!!!  It’s a glorious feeling. =)

So today’s topic is somewhat tiny house related and somewhat not.  I have an iPhone.  I’ve had an iPhone since they first came out.  I laugh at that because I am not tech saavy or into getting the latest and greatest so the fact I had an iPhone before they were popular is kinda funny…especially given that I had that stinking 1st gen iPhone until they made me replace it because the technology changed and they didn’t support it anymore. ha!  I upgraded and had that phone until the battery died (and is not replaceable) and 4 years ago got the iPhone 5.  It could have been 3 but I think it’s been 4 years.  Since then I switched to Cricket Wireless and love that I pay $35 a month and have the exact same service I had with their competitor in which I was paying $90 a month.   I’m going to switch gears for a bit but you’ll see why so hang in there with me….

This is a short post because I’m getting ready to head to Colorado Springs for the Tiny House Jamboree!!!  What?!?!  Yes, that’s right!  A whole weekend (3 days actually) of all things tiny house!!!   I already have my schedule planned out with what presentations and workshops I’m going to attend. Can you tell I’m excited???  =)  I’ll try to post throughout the Jamboree with updates but I may be missing for a few days while I absorb all the Tiny House information, which of course,will be relayed back to you all on here.  yay!

But back to today’s topic:  my internet.  As you recall from a previous post I have a wifi hotspot to connect to the internet. Remember this?
