Yes I love my electronics. I have been an early adopter of new tech and toys for as far back as I can remember. Anyone remember Laser Discs? Yep I had a nice collection of those too. Its especially true with iPhones, I have been there on release date for each one ordering my new phone. Often because new phones came out before contract expired I would always be hoping for that grace period from ATT saying yes you can early upgrade for the lower price. This time around things are different (maybe a sign of the economy) and do you know what is stopping me?
am was notorious for waiting until receiving several notices of lateness before finally paying my bill. In the past I just wasn’t organized and yes a bit lazy and would just let it go until threatened with cut off (or they actually did cut off the phone). Yes I racked up the late fees and it never really hit my how those add up but now Im being hurt with something worse. I can’t upgrade to the 4S until after my contract expires. Seems this time around payment history is a factor on who gets out of their contracts early to upgrade at the lower price.
So I have to wait while all my friends laugh and tease me as they talk to their phones and Siri talks back. Unless I want to pay full price, but not sure Im there yet, we’ll see in a month or two.
So moral of the story is to make you payments on time, its not just late fees anymore…
Did you pre-order your new 4S? or you waiting out for the 5?
