Because it is significantly more expensive to call a phone of a different mobile company than yours, it's quite common to have one.. of each company. If you make a lot of calls. I barely ever even made calls before or remembered to carry my phone with me. Mostly because I don't like to carry bags. It's all the more to be worried about being robbed for. Now I have my old movistar, two claro (one of my number and one my boss left me.. not sure what to do with one of them) and a nextel. And also pictured is the office phone. Which has recently been ringing off the hook from the telephone company concerned that we didn't receive our phone book. Read: obsessively concerned. I'm okay with that especially since the first time they called I thought they were trying to charge me for an ad we put in the book.
By the way Nextels are awkward to talk on. And, I keep missing calls because I haven't learned their rings yet. I have a feeling an embarrassing moment in a hushed church service is going to happen to me soon. Here's to hoping I can find their silence buttons!
