Ten on Tuesday (Phones)

I've wanted to join in the last couple of weeks with this lovely meme. :) Thanks to Chelsea for hosting, and thanks to Krys at Eat This Soup for the questions!

1. What type of phone do you have? Do you like it?
I have the Blackberry Curve in Smokey Violet. I love it, except for the fact that the camera sucks, and it's about a year old, so the battery is starting to wear out.

2. How old were you when you got your first cell phone?
I was...20? 20 or 21.

3. How many cell phones have you owned since your first?
Um...let's see. Three? I had a basic silver flip one that was a pay-as-you-go, a Blackberry Pearl Flip (in PINK!!), and now this lovely Blackberry Curve in Smokey Violet. What can I say? I like my phones to have colour.

4. How much is your average monthly phone bill?
Well, my portion of the bill is about 46$. We just switched our plan - we used to have a Blackberry and a Samsung Gravity and paid, like 140$ per month. Now we have a family plan with three blackberries on it (Harry has a Blackberry Curve, and Keith has a Blackberry Bold) and pretty much pay the same amount, although Harry does give us 50$ for his portion.

5. When you were a kid/teenager, were you allowed to have a phone in your room?
Not in the slightest. I'm not even sure I was allowed to be on the phone in my room.

6. Do you like talking on the phone or do you despise it? Or somewhere in-between?
Eh. I'll call if necessary, mostly to find out information, or talk to my mom or Harry, but I don't really talk on the phone at all.

7. Do you text a lot? Is texting/talking while driving illegal where you live? Are you guilty of it anyway?
I text ALL THE TIME. I actually had to bump up my text amount from 1,000 to 1,200 because I kept going over. Now that Tat and Keith both have Blackberries, we BBM, which is practically free. YAY!
It's completely illegal. I may glance at my phone at a red light occasionally, or get the passenger to respond for me, but I never respond myself. It's just too distracting!

8. What sort of texting keyboard does your phone have? Touch screen, slide out, or something different? Do you care?
QWERTY keyboard; it's just a normal, regular keyboard. I love it, especially after my last two phones which had the old school 1=ABC 2=DEF type of keypad.

9. Look at the last call in your call log – who is it? What were they calling about? Who calls you the most?
It was a telemarketer or something, but the actual last call was to Harry, yesterday, at about 4:08pm. I think I was calling to tell him I was done at the dentist.

10. What is the longest phone call you can recall having?
Either my boyfriend in 10th grade or my mom. My mom can talk. Sweet Jay-sus.

Fun! Maybe I'll do it as a scheduled post over the weekend (I am going away).
