I have been wanting a cool new phone for quite some time now. I first fell in love with the iPhone (I don’t care that it is not open source). Then like most geeks I know the G1 was my new item to desire. I am half way through a contract right now with AT&T and they will not let me get the iPhone at the discounted price. Being in the contract means that I can’t switch over to TMobile to get the G1 either. Bummer huh.
Last night my wife and one of our friends went to a party. While there I met a girl that has a 3G iPhone that she has only had for about a month. She said that she would rather go back to her old phone and that she would sell it to me for $100. That is a heck of a deal right? The sad thing is that I don’t have $100. 3 kids are depending on us to have a good Christmas this year. On the other side of that coin my wife said that she wasn’t sure that even if we did have the money to get the phone that we may not have the extra money each month to pay for the iPhone data plan.
It sucks so bad being a poor geek
