So the Brazilian guy the Celtics signed is 6'11" 270 and likes to hit people. I'm sold.

And despite the negativity around Gerald Wallace, I think he'll contribute a lot. Especially with ballhandling since Rondo will miss some time. He just didn't fit in Brooklyn.

Yeah I was just looking at tmobile's site, and base plans are 50 bucks + another 10-30 a month for the phone.

So what's up Rose?

Suckers. Rosez was grandfathered in.

Mine's actually the old 15 minutes unlimited text+ 10 cents a minute.

I know my mom has the one I told you earlier, so I guess T-mobile said **** everybody else and went more expensive.

Also the phrase "grandfathered in" is about literacy poll tests, and how old white men could fail and it didn't matter because they were grandfathered in.



There's your edumacation for today.

Edit: yup, grandfathered in.
Yeah I just double checked and if you pay for an unlocked phone you can still get the $30 one.

Where do you get said unlocked phone? Is that just paying up front for the cost of the phone? I literally don't know shit about phones.

Yeah you just pay upfront. Amazon sells them. Just make sure it says "factory unlocked" and that if you have a GSM provider (AT&T T-mobile) you get one of those or if you want Verizon/Sprint you get a CDMA phone.

I think Windows sells their phones factory unlocked directly, and I know Apple does. T-Mobile used to sell phones they owned unlocked, I don't know if they still do though.

Because otherwise the phone is locked to work with a specific carrier and only that carrier. BUT you can pay for unlocking services through interested third parties on eBay for like 10 bucks.

An unlocked phone is a phone that isn't locked into a particular carrier. So yeah if you buy a phone outright you should therefore get the phone for the $30/mo since you aren't paying so much a month to cover the cost of the phone.

Also buying an unlocked phone saves you a lot in the long run.

So I just got a new phone, a smartphone, and frankly I don't understand shit on how to operate them. I tried to call my girlfriend and I end up getting to my father and I hear his voice and think they are copulating.

Shit happens.



Huh huh??? great joke right? will you use it professor?

CDMA/GSM are the types of signals basically. GSM is the world standard. CDMA is the old standard that basically only Murrica uses.

I think let me look if you can, just to make sure.
