The preppy phone has broken... people can call me, but I can't hear them... It is one month before my phone upgrade, and because I have been with AT&T for so long they are willing to offer me the upgrade early, but it won't qualify towards an Iphone...
I have my old Cell phone that still works, and can put my SIM card in that to get by until the end of May, but I'm wondering should I just give in and get an Iphone? I know that every body has one, and I know all of the great features that are available on the Iphone. But I also know that even with the discount they're still $200, and then I have to upgrade my plan to $75 a month before taxes and extras (the PBF says his bill is usually closer to around $90). The question isn't so much is it worth it, because I know if I had the Iphone I would use it all the time, rather the question for me is whether or not this is a wise decision. I mean as a medical student I'll be living on borrowed money, and I'm just not sure it makes sense to increase the amount I'll be paying in a phone bill.
So what do you think readers? Is it time that I just bite the bullet and jump on the Iphone train? Or am I better off to save the extra $420-$660 a year that I'll be spending on my increased phone bill and hold off until I'm at least a 3rd year medical student, at which time some of the medical applications become almost necessary for rotations?
