Blackberry Blues

I am one sad person. We have Virgin Media and they emailed me the other day to let me know that, since I’m such an important customer, I can have a Blackberry free. Well not entirely free as I would have to sign up to their £10 a month contract but the Blackberry is free. Wow, result. One minor problem though, I am with O2 via Carphone Warehouse on a 24 month contract. Hmmm. Where’s the contract? I’m sure that 18 months was mentioned somewhere. Was it that I could stop it then, or was it an upgrade? After much delving in drawers, rummaging through files and searching along shelves I admitted defeat, I couldn’t find it. I emailed CPW with my query and they replied very quickly, with the news that to leave them I would have to pay £159 and that I’m not due for an upgrade until next July. Seems a trifle unfair as the disconnection is more than my contract but all that pales into insignificance when I consider that I’m missing out on a Blackberry. Oh woe, woe and thrice woe.

Can I justify having 2 mobile contracts just to get a Blackberry? Hubby thinks not.
