New Captivate owner


May 16, 2011
Ok, so the little robot told me to say hi, so here, hi.

I'm switching from Verizon (after 15 years at least) to AT&T mainly because they offer slightly more for the price. Verizon doesn't offer unlimited texting (it's 5000) or unlimited M2M minutes (or rollover), or a $15 data plan, so buh bye Verizon.

I actually ordered my Captivate off the AT&T site, got the refurbished phone for $9.99, it arrives today. Well, dummy me, I didn't go to Costco FIRST, and so I will be returning the refurb in favor of a NEW one for $19.99 at Costco.

I know this is last year's phone, but hey, I am on a budget, I can't afford $100 or more for a phone, and even though Costco has the HTC Inspire for $49.99, I still like saving that $30 and besides I heard the HTC has horrible battery life. (now I know there will be a thousand people probably tell me the same thing about the Captivate)

Anyway, so that's my hello. My name is Rod and I'm from California. :D
