I just lost my job last Thursday. My phone was their phone, so I don't have a phone.

Yes, that's a good plan

Sorry to hear you lost your job ;(.

Using an unlocked smartphone would be a viable option for you if wifi is what you want to use for data. T-Mobile will be more lenient in this regard if you wanted to use their network. ATT a little less so, depending on what phones you had in mind.

Search for my recent post on this topic where I give the run down on the Nokias that would work w/ ATT, etc.

Well, you can find lots of android phones out there satisfy your need.
iphone is great, but more expensive. Since you just lost your job (sorry for that), I guess you don't wanna spend too much on the phone.

Don't forget

If you use At&t (postpaid and not prepaid), a smartphone will require a monthly data plan at an additional cost. Prepaid plans do not have the same requirement.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
