T-6 Hours to leaving LeasePlan

Posted On // Leave a Comment
I'm finding it harder and harder to focus on work. I really need to finish up some things for the Spec Enhancement project, but all I can think about right now is the people I'm going to miss working with at LeasePlan. In fact as I was writing this, Donald Higgs, one of our switchboard operators, stopped by with a really touching card for me. I'm really going to miss the people here, and I hope that I can stay in contact with some of them at least.

On a more mundane note, I'm also trying to figure out what I'm going to do about a cell phone. My old one is LeasePlan's so I've got to find a new one. It was an old Motorola P280 phone and, with almost divine prescience of my imminent departure, the phone stopped working last night. I'm looking at a Motorola V600 to replace it, since that has BlueTooth (which will work well with my Palm Tungsten T3), and it is a quad-band world phone. My problem is that JBoss (my new employer) will pay for the plan if it is with TMobile, however I don't start with them until May 2nd. I'm looking into trying to get some kind of pre-paid SIM for the phone, but the TMobile approved pre-paid plans I see don't include that phone. I'm thinking that an unlocked V600 could still work with a pre-paid plan, but then I'm not sure about porting the number over to the new plan. More research is required...
