There's no way you should be paying $135 for that, unless you have insurance, etc. on both lines. The lowest minute tier is 700, so 700 minutes plus unlimited texting is $100. So you should be at $110-$115 every month, including taxes. Smartphones would add $30 apiece to your bill. ATT would be exactly the same amount every month, and withtheir horrible service as well as a useless device like the iDont, probably isn't worth it. I would choose the the newest Droid (the Incredible) because on the iPhone: -cant take out the battery -no removable memory -no multitasking -only Apple-approved apps -cant customize your phone AT ALL -doesnt work with Windows -Incredible has a MUCH better camera -Incredible has a MUCH faster processor -instant Android OTA software updates -cant get service in an ATT store- have to find an Apple store -works on ATTs horrible network The Incredible is amazing- everything is so smooth and fast due to that processor. I've had one for a few weeks now, and absolutely LOVE it!! Definitely worth every penny :) PS. Ask Verizon if either of you would get a monthly discount based on where you work- would save you anywhere between 10% and 25% a month
1. Carrier furnace blower stops during AC cycle?
It sounds like your motor may be cutting out on thermal overload. This means that your motor may be getting too hot. Some causes could be; clogged vent holes in the motor, worn brushes in the motor, failing bearings in the motor, your windings may be failing, or it could be a bad capacitor. The only way to know for sure if it is one of these, or something else, is to have someone test the motor.
2. What is WRONG with CARRYING a SMALL dog?
Proper times a dog should be in any form of carrier: -Going into a vet office -Going into an airport -On an airplane or in a car Times a dog should be on it's own 4 legs: -Inside any pet-friendly store (should not even BE in no-pet stores, the sign says no pets not purse-pets only!!!!) -On any type of walking excursion -Outside Bottom line, any form of carrier is meant only contain and restrain a dog for TRAVEL purposes- carrying a dog through a shopping mall or pet store is and always will be both damaging to the dog's mental state, and just plain stupid. Dogs are not meant to be carried, they are meant to walk. Does it sound normal to you for a mother to carry around a 10 year old child 24/7 that is perfectly capable of walking on it's own? Of course not! If it CAN walk, it SHOULD walk.
3. What is the best baby carrier/car-seat/stroller combo?
I did all the research possible before I had my baby. Originally, I wanted to purchase a pink Graco one from Babies'R'Us...but heard that their systems are just too bulky! Anyway, I have two answers for you. The best one I found was called The Orbit Baby. You can check it out at OrbitBaby.com. It's fairly expensive, I had to save up for it...but it is VERY useful! Check out their videos and features. :) I never have to unbuckle my little girl back and forth out of the car. I just click the carseat out and click it right into the stroller. It's fabulous. (And believe me, when you are dealing with a sleeping newborn or infant, it matters!) Another way to research is to check the reviews on Babies'R'Us. Also, check the reviews from Buzzillions.com. When you type in what you are looking for, make sure you type in "Travel System". That's the only way to do it. Best of luck to you!
4. Is this baby carrier safe for a newborn?
It's generally recommended to avoid carriers that put the baby an upright position until they are able to support themselves in that posture comfortably. Small babies tend to feel more secure in the "cradle hold", and it is not natural for them to be placed in a position that forces upright posture. I carried my son in a maya wrap sling for as long as he was comfortable in it. Slings allow a variety of positions for the baby, it can adapt to your needs much more than this style carrier. I even nursed him in the sling using the "tail" as a blanket. Slings can be a bit more tricky to learn to use, but there are many pictures and instructional videos online. I think its a worthy investment.
