When your cellphone contract expires, the generally expected thing to do is to stride immediately into your local telecoms agency and sign yourself up for a fresh deal on whatever phone grabs your fancy.
The contract for my cellphone expired last march and, well, I really didn’t know what to do. I had been nailed into a 24 month term and the phone had actually been perfectly satisfactory, battery issues aside, and no doubt its replacement would do just the same job, but the idea of being locked into another two year relationship with anything then on the market really didn’t appeal to me.
There was just so much choice, and I really didn’t like any of it. Thank goodness, I thought to myself, we’re talking about a phone and not a car.
