I went down to the Mall this evening to get a haircut. (Short hair+goatee plus plus!). I’ve also pre-ordered Halo 2 (and the guy at EB said they’ve got about 400 preorders for it so far), and I’m buying a Sony-Ericsson T610 mobile phone! I’ve wanted to get a Bluetooth/iSync-compatible phone for a while now (ever since I got my PowerBook, really), and I’ve worked out this would be the cheapest method.
I’m on a $33/month plan at the moment with a Nokia 6100. I talked to the guys in the Optus shop, and they said the only options were to cancel my current plan (which would cost ~$450) and upgrade to the $45/month plan, which offers the T630. I’m not even using the $33/month, so that’d be silly.
The other option is to buy the T610 outright for ~$480, transfer my SIM card over from my 6100 to the T610 and continue on with the $33/month plan until it runs out towards the end of next year. After that, I’ll just be paying for what I use.
