My phone has been turned off due to nonpayment and I have no idea how long it’s been off. I just don’t make phone calls. It’s been…(checks history)…4 days since I’ve made an outgoing call. I think I’ll just leave it as a brick, because (A) I don’t have eighty bucks, even if I wanted to give it away for a terrible product, and (B) fuck ’em.
Naturally, this will require a bit of planning and research. Cell phones have definite perks in emergencies.
As an inveterate cynic, I note that turning off my service has not stopped calls from other student loan debt collectors, just as bankruptcy doesn’t make the payments go away. Apparently debt collectors have special priveleges on cell networks.
