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. =)
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! =)
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?
