Dr Arthur F. Earle Website Launches

Because my grandfather is important to me and has been influential I decide to create an online biography about him for me and all of my cousins to have. It’s based on an autobiography he created about ten years ago and is in his words. It’s very well written and quite an enjoyable read.

11:16:03 Online Customer Support: Yes, you are right.
11:16:03 Visitor: this is WAY more than the 100Mb plan
11:16:52 Online Customer Support: Please note that in call and surf you will be charge for per MB, text and call according to your usage.
11:17:29 Visitor: so to not get a very HIGH price for the data, you have to not order voice

11:21:22 Online Customer Support: Is there any thing else I may help you with?
11:22:02 Visitor: your product is limited in that you cant use the phone for voice calls with the reasonably priced data
