hangin’ around while charging

just would like to share what i found via lifehacker — a cool DIY project! 🙂

ever had that instance where you had to charge your phone on an outlet that would make you either (a) leave your phone or gadget on the floor or (b) stretch the charger cable for 20 kilometers to reach the table and risk having to trip someone because it’s blocking the way? well, the solution is an old lotion container. 🙂 how? see here:

well, you could prolly use some other plastic container and just use the basic pattern on the original poster’s site. 😀 a DIY project for the hubby perhaps? 😀 heehee…

remember that post where i said that i just got GOLD? 😀 natanso! (lol)

not exactly. lemme explain.

since i got a postpaid SIM and only had one handset, what i had to do most of the tmie was turn off the phone, open it, swap SIM cards, close it, turn it on, then text. then i’m paranoid that someone might be texting or calling me on the other line. i turn off the phone, open it, swap SIMs, close, then on again… tiring and not so SIM friendly because my SIM is secured and removed by sliding it. it’s harsh on the SIM and on the copper contacts of the unit and card. so to solve this problem, i thought of buying another unit.

one day in farmers, meeting up with A that night, i asked her if we could go around and ‘window shop’ for a new handset. she knew my dilemma and obliged. searching for the ‘best bang for the buck’ phone, i told her that we should just settle for a second-hand unit since this should be just a temporary handset since i had my eyes set on the Nokia E63. heehee… since that would take forever and a day to save-up for, i opted for the el-cheapo phones on the 4th floor of Farmer’s Cubao.

I got Gold… and a “sumpungin” phone!

the good news first… I got GOLD!!! 😀 haha…

not literally real gold but I got myself to subscribe to Smart Gold Lite plan. It’s P300.00 per month with a special P2/min call-rate Smart-to-Smart calls. (do i sound like an advert already?)

anyway, i just wanted to try it out since i’m a big boy now and i think i’ve grown out of the prepaid stuff and can handle the responsibility of paying the bills. well, sort of… in the lite plan, you don’t exactly get a bill sent to you via mail. you’re supposed to be sent an email/reminder that you have accounts to settle with Smart Communications. the store rep told me that if i choose to upgrade to plan 500, i’ll be sent a monthly bill via mail. but i don’t know if i actually spend that much.
