New Cell Phones

Last November, our contract with ATT for our cell phones expired which meant were we able to get new phones. Well, we've been putting it off and putting it off. We couldn't find a phone we really wanted and we didn't want to spend a lot of money on a new one.

Last week, Radio Shack ran an ad for the Sony Ericsson W580i. Such a neat neat phone. Matt's had his eye on it for a while, but the price just wasn't right until last week. He got his phone on Sat. and I had to order mine. I wanted the pink one, he got the white one.

My new pink really fun phone arrived yesterday. We had Bible Study last night and when we got home I tried to load some music on it and it wouldn't work! I was so frustrated b/c I am the techie in the family and I couldn't figure it out. I was the one who set up Matt's phone to load music and yet I couldn't get mine to work.

I start looking at it and I just thought that maybe there wasn't a memory stick inserted yet. BINGO!! That was the problem. I go back to the packaging, search for the stick and I am not seeing it. Now I'm pretty upset. Mind you Matt's has a stick in his.

This morning, Matt goes by Radio Shack and asks them why I don't have a stick. Come to find out, the white color is the only one that come with the memory stick. If you get the pink or the black phones you have to buy a stick!! WHAT!! It's the SAME EXACT PHONE just different colors.

I call ATT. They push me off on Sony Ericsson. I call Sony. They give me a promo code for a free memory stick! Which is really great, I just have to wait 4-6 weeks for it to arrive! I was really looking forward to using the mp3 aspect of my phone after I delivered. That could always happen if I wanted to continue to be pregnant for 4-6 more weeks huh? haaha NAHHH

Moral: If you plan on getting a new Sony Ericsson W580i in pink or black, just know you will not get to use ALL the fun features of the phone(mp3, camera, video), BUT Sony Ericsson is running a promo until March 31, 2008 so you can get a memory stick for free!

Isn't it cute?! Luckily I can use the FM radio feature, oh and the phone part.


  1. I have the older version of this phone and Casey has the exact same phone in white....we love them!

  2. cool phone!
    the winner of the bible will be anounced shortly...GOOD LUCK!
