>Today I came home to find a notice on my door from property management. It was an unfriendly reminder that my lease will be up in AUGUST and if I renew now, I won’t be subjected to a higher rental rate for going month to month.
Um, first of all, there are quite a few empty spaces in the complex. It might be smart of you to make the form letter a little more enticing as opposed scolding. Use the customer service skills God gave you. Try a little marketing. You might be able to keep a few renters in place.
What’s really interesting is that today my sister told me about this really great apartment near a friend of hers, in a more hip part of town, for about $100 a month less than I’m paying now. Did I mention it would have all the same amenities I currently enjoy? Looks like I might have to move in a few months.
>It’s that time where I am free of my current 2 year agreement with Sprint. So now I’m trying to figure out if it’s better (i.e. cheaper) to just renew my current agreement or switch to a new carrier. I need a new phone. Every time I answer my current phone it’s all staticy for a couple of seconds.
How did getting a cell phone become so complicated? It used to be just a matter of usage. How much time do I spend chatting on the phone? Now, I have to figure out who is on my network. Do I want a camera phone? How about internet access on my phone? Do I want to play music on it? Do I need to send text messages? What the hell is BlueTooth and is it safe?
I’m getting to the point where I’m just going to close my eyes and blindly choose. Does it really matter, anyway? I know I hate Cingular. I had them for a while and the coverage sucked. If they have the fewest dropped calls it’s because you can’t even begin the damn call!
Sprint is OK, but I think their plans are a little pricey. Coverage is fair, customer service is passable, but not exceptional.
I’m leaning towards T-Mobile. 600 minutes for $39.99 seems pretty good. Plus, I like their phones.
Verizon is my second choice. Supposedly, they have a really good coverage area. The problem is that their commercials are annoying and I went to their main website and it was down. Not a good sign.
