I hate wasting money on things. I bought a second cheap pay as you go phone since I had not been receiving text messages on and off for a long time on my current phone for nearly a year and been putting off sorting the issue out. The phone was only $20 but still I hate to see things going to waste especially brand new physical items. Well someone said it's probably not the phone and more likely the service provider. I am going to change simcards on that phone too but I was being desperate and impatient so got another cheap phone before even trying a new sim to find out if that was causing the problem. I have that sick to my stomach feeling, you know what I'm talking about right? where you feel you did something bad. So is there any ways I could turn this into a positive and make good use of it for money making pusposes or otherwise? Note I hate talking to people on the phone so I don't want to suddenly start up some adhoc telesales company I'm thinking at worst take the hit and ebay it but wondering if there are better ways. The packaging is ripped so don't wanna try get a refund.
