My old cell phone is broke. So I go to buy a new one. My brother is manager at Wireless Wave, so who better to talk to then someone I trust. Right?
"Motorola v220 please. It's the cheapest one. I don't need a fancy phone", I say.
"For forty dollars more, you can get the Motorola v551. It has more features. Besides, the Motorola v220 is a problematic phone", he says.
"There's a $35 administration fee."
"Now, here's where I make my money. You can buy a 2 year extended warranty or a 3 year extended warranty."
"Alright, so the phone actually costs $120, so you have to mail in this rebate."
"Let me see if I can apply my discount ... No, looks like I can't"
Oh well. At least I have a working phone now. And I have a video camera built into my phone. And this crappy ringtune.
