Feeling Naked Without a Cell Phone

UPDATED (07.10.2008 - 12:52 PM) - Liz told me the phone was delivered to the house FTW!

UPDATED (07.09.2008 - 12:36 PM) - Just got off the phone with Verizon. They're overnighting me a new phone (XV6800) and giving me all of the rebates. w00t!!

Well, I haven't heard anything yet about my phone - i.e. no one's found it yet. The day is still young, though, but I'm not holding my breath. Since Verizon will not budge on my end-date renewal (which is next Saturday) and, to me, 100$ is nothing to sneeze at, I'm looking at other temporary options. One is to use Skype for the next week. I'm not sure how the whole Skype Credit thing works (i.e. do they dock a bit out of the credit every time you make or receive a call?), but it's only 10$, so that could hold me over until next Saturday. Verizon said that if I have an old cell phone they could put my number on that phone for now. The only phone I have is one that a babysitter of ours gave Hayden to play with. It still works (you can't make calls with it but it's functional otherwise), but it didn't come from Verizon (she used T-Mobile) and I don't know if that matters anymore.

Any other ideas?
