Windows 7: Thinking about a new phone

Thinking about a new phone

I'm entering college end of August and I guess you can call me a "deprived child". Not in every sense, just that for the last 2 years and actually 95% of the time I've owned a cell phone, I've had no texting and no data plan.

Anyways, I'm hoping to score a job and I have some money saved up, so I want to ask my dad to take me off our family plan. I'm thinking of switching to Sprint since they're a lot more reasonable with their pricing. Our contract ends July 26th, but I don't want to wait since removing a line wouldn't cost anything. Currently, it's $95 a month for 700 minutes and 4 lines (AT&T). I was happy when they were Cingular but now they're like the Verizon of a few years ago.

Specifically, I'm thinking of going with a plan that includes 500 minutes and unlimited text/data for $60/month. And on top of that, mobile to mobile on any network is free, so I'd end up with extra minutes. I really like the Samsung Moment, since it's an Android phone. Honestly, it's not the most visually appealing phone but it's cheap and it's solid. Plus I have big fingers so the keyboard is a plus. Anyone have experience with this phone or with Sprint?

Pretty sure Sprint sells that phone as a Pay as you Go Phone and you can literally pay as you go, i.e. put $50 down and see how far it gets you, if it works you're good, if not then you at least get to experience Sprint and how much time you would use and have purchased the phone and able to latch on to a Sprint contract with it.

Thinking of going to I.E. 11, but....
I have Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit and I currently have I.E. 8 still. Now I do not use I.E. 8 as my web browser, I use Firefox; probably 99% Firefox and 1% I.E. 8. Reason is that I use Firefox for my personal use, but when I run in to a problem like connections to a website or just cannot connect to...

Seriously thinking about getting an SSD
I'm currently considering the benefits of getting an SSD. There are certain circumstances keeping me from getting one at the moment, but as soon as I can buy one without going broke, I plan to buy a 30-32GB one for the OS and use my current HDD for file storage. If you had to choose between the two...

Windows Seven, should be renamed Windows. Just simply Windows. No suffix. No XP, no Vista, no codenames, no numbers. Just simply Windows. This OS is by far the best I have used. Sure it has some bugs here and there, but that's what happens with Betas. It could be: Windows Basic Windows...
