Well... Friday was totally unproductive as far as studying went. Yesterday was reasonably productive for studying. Today was totally unproductive for studying. Let's hope I get lots of studying done tomorrow before VSU Culture Night interferes, or else Tuesday could be a little stressful.

Found a Cingular flier in the mail today. All their plans now have unlimited nights and weekends + nationwide long distance included for free, plus their $39.99 plan is now 400 anytime minutes. Sounds like a good deal vs. some of the old plans, right? I've got $39.99 for 300 anytime minutes, and I could chose two of three options: (1) unlimited nights and weekends (2) unlimited nationwide long distance and/or (3) unlimited mobile to mobile + text messaging.

Well, looks good in theory if you don't use mobile to mobile. (1) is worth $9.99, (2) is $4.99... so if I had (1) and (2), I'd actually be better off upgrading to the current Cingular plan.

I do use mobile to mobile, though. I use it so much that I rarely use all of my anytime minutes. =) So I've actually got (2) and (3) right now. (3) is $14.99 for unlimited mobile to mobile, plus $9.99 for 500 text messages (vs. unlimited which I get) = $24.98/month for what I get for what was (at the time) $15 or $20 worth of options. Not bad! laugh Ok, I admit the 1000 mobile to mobile and 250 text messages would work for me, at $9.99 and $5.99 each. Still $15.98...

Cell phone plans remain anything but simple today is still the order of the day.
