iPhone & Texting Not Allowed Here

What would you do if you had no texting? What would you do if you had to sell your iPhone? Well, that is what happened to me :( Can you believe it?!?!? Seriously, some days I am still in shock and disbelief. I have had texting since my 2nd year in college. Oh.my.gosh!!! That makes me sound so old. My friend's daughter, Morgan, whom I love with all my heart, has texting and she is only 9 years old. Yes ladies, she is only 9 and has texting!! I love her to pieces.
Anyways, stay on track Lindsay...so hubby and I decided we should downgrade our plan.

First we decided let's get rid of our iPhones since the internet is silly (hubby thinks) to have when you have internet at home. Umm...doesn't he know I have to check facebook throughout the day?!?! Kidding...sorta ;) Well, I thought ok, we can get rid of internet because he is right I do have internet at home, why pay it twice.

Second thing he suggests is let's get rid of the iPhones since you have to have internet to have one. My mind was thinking OH.MY.GOSH!?!?! Baby, did I hear you right??? I just got my iPhone in March, and now you want me to sell it. I didn't even want to consider selling it. I loved it. I love the photography app, ShakeItPhoto. I think it is so cool. I used it ALL the time. Well, I had to give in and sell it. I now have a $20 phone I bought at good ol' Walmart. 
:::I teared up a lot:::

Third thing hubby suggested was get rid of texting. Seriously, come on now baby. I need want to keep something. What is the point of a phone if you can't text?? I mean seriously let's face it, texting is totally convient and an 'easy out' if you don't want to actually talk to someone. Sadly, I am addicted to texting. I love texting, I am a true serial texter. It keeps me entertained.
But we got rid of that too :(

Our phone bill is 3/4 less than it was. We were in shock how much our phone plan dropped in price. Oh I forgot to mention, we only have 550 minutes together (mobile to mobile, nights and weekends free). So needless to say we do not even talk on the phone because 225 minutes each is 4 hours a month and that totally adds up fast. Funny thing though, people don't call us now...even on the weekend. Is it true that people only want to text and not verbally chat? I am totally a little offended to be honest, but I was one of those people just two weeks ago.

With all this being said, I am no longer dependent on a cell phone. I rarely even carrying it around with me anymore. I leave it in the bedroom when we are hanging out at home, whereas before I was truly addicted to my phone. I always always had it on my body.

My life has truly changed with the lack of options on my $20 cell phone.

I totally understand! I had a blackberry and when I got to France I have this crappy pay as you go plan. I barely use it. I hardly carry it with me. It does have 1 kinda cool game on it. But I feel ya!
