You'll be fine. With my occasional youtube video sharing, internet browsing, emailing and texting, I go through only about half a gig a month download.

Because I want him to be healthy enough that he lives past 40 so I can have more time to be a dick to him.

would have preferred power like i put into the sedan, but it's really only going to be me driving it, and i'm not going to be putting people in the back seat so it shouldn't be much of an issue once I get them adjusted for me.

Had to go to AT&T store a month ago that same day and get a new standard SIM for my old phone since I didn't have the new phone in hand until yesterday.
So I got the new phone from my mom yesterday and a new micro SIM that came with it, but we were unsure if it had been deactivated.
So I went to the AT&T store just now and the dude just gave me a new micro SIM.
Left store, called AT&T up and was told the IMEI of the new phone was already active. Weird. So I guess they hadn't put the IMEI of the old phone back, but no biggie.
All the person at AT&T had to do was update the SIM ID to the new micro SIM's ID, so all is well.
Slight bummer is that I can no longer easily use old phones as backups since the SIMs are different sizes.


tl;dr: New phone is ready for kitteh pictures.
KITTEH!

My driver's seat will shift forward slightly under hard braking. Not enough to be a problem, but just enough to annoy me. They're power seats though

The main killer of pumps I had was just mud or bad design. If you can mount it on your bike where it avoids mud, or cover it up somehow, the better. Also, pulling the pump off the valve before releasing the seal screws them up quickly.
