[Q] G2 or Keep and repair Nexus 4
I've got a bit of a dilemma. I've got a Nexus 4 and really like the phone. I've had it since Mar 2013 and a few days ago I dropped it and cracked the front screen and now the touch screen doesn't work. I found someone locally who can swap in a new screen and digitizer, but at a cost of $215. I can get a new phone for cheaper, but I'm kinda picky and really love the vanilla android. I've been reading reviews on the G2 and I'm starting to really like this phone. I'm in Canada and on the Bell network. I'm also out of contract and eligible for a hardware upgrade. Now since I paid full price for my Nexus 4 I really didn't want to spend the $215 it's going to cost to fix it. The current plan that I'm is a little pricey and I don't use all of the 1GB data I have. I'd like to trim it down a bit.
When I called Bell they told me, becuase my current plan is no longer available if I wanted to keep it I would have to pay $4 per month to keep it. F!ck you guys! Charge me more to keep my plan. I'm not paying more to keep it.I saw a plan on the website call promo 55. It's a voice and data lite plan for $55. That one suits me better, although I would lose 500mb data and my current plan has 1gb. I think I could live with that if I had to. I tried to get them to add 500mb more to keep me happy, but they wouldn't and also if I wanted that plan I would have to shell out $369 for the G2 in stead of the $149. They seem to want people to get the higher priced plan because here in Canada carriers now have to off 2yr contract plans verus the 3yr plans and that seems how they are getting there money.
So do I get the new phone and call Bell again and try and negotiate to get a better plan and go under contract again or do I get my Nexus 4 repaired and just change to the plan I want and go with no term plan. Also if I provide my own phone to whatever plan I choose I can get an extra 10% off my plan. So in my case if I choose the $55 plan I would get an extra $5.50 discount. Any discount is good.
What do you guys think??
