I absolutely LOVE it how, even tho you’re a customer with a certain phone company, they send you advertisements offering a “FREE phone!!” Um, I already have a phone with you people…I BOUGHT it FROM you…why are you offering me another one?! Crazy.
Went to pay my bill the other day at my company, and I was curious where I was at as far as the contract was concerned…how long I would have to wait until I could upgrade and such. I figured I was about 1 1/2 years with my current BlackJackII, but I just thought I’d check into it.
Well…the salesgal told me I could upgrade NOW if I wanted to… “Huh?” sez I…”I don’t think I’ve had the BlackJack for 2 years already…” I was right…there was still 8 months left in my current contract. Here’s the “fun” part…she tells me that since I bring in enough “revenue” from being a customer with them, they allow me the option of upgrading early…even tho I’m on 2 year contracts, I’ll always have the option for upgrading every year.
Am I being obtuse, or did she just tell me I spend too much money on my phone…and their way of rewarding me for doing that is to allow me to upgrade more frequently? I’m sorry…but cel phone companies and contracts and such baffle me. 😀
