I am 22 years old, I work for an Insurance Agency, and I am a Sales Professional for a company online. I plan to get either a Masters or a Doctorate degree in Information Systems Security (which I am currently working on right now), as well as my Networking Degree. I am not just some kid wanting a nice shiny new phone lol. I could afford the security deposit, but paying $400 and not getting anything from it, or seeing it for 12 months does not interest me. This about 1/3 of my monthly rent, as I could find other uses for $400. You may find me being arrogant, but believe me, I am not "just some kid".
I am asking about Boost Mobile, or other suggestions for non contract phones. Have you never heard its always to pay the car off up front, then to owe money to the bank?
