a few things to consider when deciding on an email address or cellphone number
if you have a contract with a company be it cellphone...telkom etc you have to consider this in you decide to move for what ever reason you have to change numbers and your email address.
i am so tired of contracts...hence the reason i have aprepaid cellphone no billing confusion...double debits etc...and a gmail address...why because it is free and i can access it from any computer anywhere in the world.
the only thing i need to sort out now is a prepaid sim card which i can insert into my laptop 3 G and leave it there for a couple of years without having to take it out to make one paid call at least ever 2 months...other wise i have to have the rica done again every 3 months...any ideas?
you got to think to yourself it is a clever way to bind people in a contract or service...offer free emails they register then use the email but if they decide to move they have to change the email address...so sometimes it is just easier to stay with the company.
