My digital phone (land-line) got activated today. I can't tell you how much I've missed having a "real" phone, as in one where I can call anyone I want and just not worry about minutes, overcharges and so on. Very, very cool.
I have this now-ancient Panasonic cordless phone set. One's on the base and I have one satellite. I spent a good coin on this phone set. The antenna lights up when a call comes in, both handsets have speakerphone built-in, the buttons are big, the display is very readable and, well.. it's an awesome phone set.
For those that know my home phone number, no I did not transfer my existing land-line number to this one. The reason is because from day 1 (more or less) I received almost nothing but telemarketer calls. And since people primarily contacted me via my cell phone anyway there was no reason to keep it.

Being that Verizon is #1 on my fecal roster I've been shopping around for a different provider and phone plan. Sprint is going to be the one because:
- They have a $29.99 a month plan.
- They give away a free Motorola RAZR v3m with their current plans.
As some know, I already have a v3m with Verizon and I like it a lot, so... this should be a no-brainer. What I have to find out is how much of a whack I'm going to take for the early termination fee from Verizon.
Being that I don't necessarily feel like dealing with Verizon's ass-tastic customer support, I think I'll call tomorrow.
