well I finally got through to someone at AT&T. I guess they had gotten my plan wrong and tried to charge a bunch to my debit card. Then it was declined and I got an email telling me that my card was declined and that I should call a number included in the email. After waiting and waiting I finally managed to get ahold of someone. (yay!!) and she got it all straightened out and my new phone should be arriving tomorrow. Presently, I can't actually afford a plan that I can use to talk really... but at least if my car decides it hates me or somehting I'll be able to call for help. 45 minutes won't really go very far... but I can always move up when I can better affort it. and hey, at this point, I don't know who I'd be talking to anyway too much.
