I picked up a "bonus" $25 recharge card when I bought a quadband phone for my dad from T-mobile (All together, it was about $50. Factoring in the $25 refill card, and the original $10 activation minutes, the phone itself costed $15. Which is _very_ good, considering how it was quad band and had bluetooth and just about everything except for a camera.)

But I digress. We're not going to use that phone much, so I decided to use the $25 recharge card on my own phone. T-mobile's system is odd: Apparently, the cost per minute is calculated based on last recharged amount. So when I recharged with the $25 card, my cost per minute rose from 10 cents per minute to 14 cents per minute. And a quick check revealed approx. 250 minutes = $30. Then I added $100 to my phone, making it drop back down to 10 cents per minute. So now I've got $130 = 1300 minutes.

Lesson of the story here? If you use T-mobile to-go, and you happen to have random recharge cards on hand, do those first, then recharge with $100 to get the best cost per minute deal.

T-Mobile ToGo! So uh, yeah. Dunno, phone number _should_ be ported over from Nextel in a few hours, so another post (or a modification to this one) should happen sooner or later.

I have a camera phone now. Samsung t319... o.O

[Append: 1-08-2007, 15:44] Yep, old cellphone number transfered over to the new phone. So uh, yeah, flawless upgrade from the evil that is Sprint/Nextel and the rapage of 2-year contracts and $200 early termination fees.

Still have to manually move all the numbers from the old cellphone to the new one. But that can wait a bit.

Mmmm, my Motorola i560 only functions as a GPS device now. Yay? Need to figure out how to connect it to the iBook for GPS Warwalking.

My 'review' of the t-319:
Menu options are much less complex than the i560. However, there are a lot less options. As in, there's no way to configure the software-based keys (the ones whose functions change depending on what you're looking at) next to the arrows. Actually, there's no way to configure what the arrow keys do either. (on the i560, you can set them to do specific menu options from the main screen) And there's no way to turn off the goddamn annoying camera "shutter-click" sound. Why, Samsung, WHY? Now I can't secretly take picture of people. Oh, and volume/silence in general is an issue. There is a silent mode, but that can't be triggered with the volume keys outside - you have to use the menu or hold the # key for about 2 seconds. And silent mode doesn't apply to the camera. :P Lastly, the hang-up key is combined with the power key. So if you hold the hang-up key for a bit too long, the phone shuts down. XP

Other than that, it supports IM (AIM, ICQ, Yahoo), which rocks, as well better support for images and stuff. There's a working calendar that doesn't run on some slow java-based app, which is good. Alarm, calculator, unit conversion, todo list, time. All in all, good, comfortable design; I agree with the 4.5/5 rating on most places.
