What’s Worth More?

Okay, so a brand new, kickin’ ass, cell phone is finally being offered to customers from Cingular – the Sony Ericsson W600i. Here’s my dilema... I could really use a new phone and I’m fine with switching services to get it (I’m currently on Verizon, which is now trailing Sprint in crappy cell phones, amazingly). I can go get the phone from Cingular for $200 (with rebates)... OR, OR, OR, I can get it for FREE from Amazon – only catch, I have to get a new phone number.

Money or hassle? What’s the better choice here people?

When I changed carriers a few years back I had to get a new number and it honestly wasn't as much of a pain as I thought it would be. I'd go for the sweet phone.

Wait, didn't they pass that law a couple of years back that makes it so you no longer have to change phone number when you change carrier?

Yeah, but Amazon isn't set up currently with Cingular to do that. I could have it done, via my new service agreement with Cingular, but I wouldn't get the phatty discount. I'll be fine with changing my number. I hope.
