Cell Phone Migration

So, as I mentioned the other day, I've given up on my Virgin Mobile paygo mobile service. It's not that I have a problem with the paygo model — I actually like it more than an XXX minutes for $YY.99 per month plan — but Working Assets offered me a free camera phone (an LG PM225) and I've been wanting one of those for a while. Plus, I was using the Virgin phone at a rate that was equal to what the Working Assets plan cost. Now, the trick for me is to not tap the Internet features (including picture messaging) at a rate that makes the Working Assets plan cost more than I was spending with Virgin.

All this means we have a spare Audiovox CDM8500 phone laying around ... which makes Celeste very happy. She always has enjoyed playing with phones — cell phones, landlines, remote controls (she holds them up to her ear as if they were telephones) — so now she has her own phone to play with. She's already figured out how to turn it on, and this afternoon I heard a voice coming from the phone ... Celeste had accessed a menu that was prompting her to record voice dialing cues.
