So initially he threw a temper tantrum because I wouldn't throw away my phone, and three other phones that my family have and pay $200 contract cancellation fees for all phones so that he can bask in the glory of owning "the RAZR." Now this fight got really comical when he started accusing my Sprint cell phone of being "ugly," "fat," "obese" and "bulky," and was shocked that I could not understand how convenient it is for him to carry a ubiquitous cell phone that has lousy reception and feels like you're talking into a pancake.
After several hours of deliberation, I looked online and saw that Sprint is launching an ultrapricey, ultrathin knock-off of the RAZR entitled the Samsung A900 - a.k.a. "The Blade". The problem was that the Blade was sporadically released over Thanksgiving weekend, and it was impossible to buy one because none of the Sprint stores had it in stock. So, after spending days calling stores to find out that they don't have the Blade or they just sold their last one, my boyfriend decides that he can't take it anymore, he hates the Blade and he absolutely has to have the Razr!
So finally I give in and agree to let him spin off his phone and buy the Razr at T-mobile. The only problem is that he had a contract with Sprint, and I sure as hell wasn't going to pay a $200 cancellation fee so that mi amore can get an slimmer cell phone. So I decide, reasonable bloke that I am, to add my mother as an extra phone on my plan to take his place because she has been nagging me for months that she wants her own cell phone.
This morning, I walked over to the Sprint store to spin off my boyfriend's cell phone number and to set up a new phone for my Mum and guess what I saw sitting pristine on the store counter -- the Blade. Apparently, the shipment "just arrived." How convenient. So by then I decided that it was fate that had brought me and the Blade together and I bought the bloody cell phone for myself!
