Narrator: Now listen to two students discussing the letter.
Woman: Hey, Jimmy, did you read this?
Man: I did, yeah, what do you think about it?
Woman: I don't know. I don't think it'd be a very good idea.
Man: Oh, yeah? But it's true that a lot of us have our own phones.
Woman: Yeah, but it's good to have both.
The service we get with our own phones isn't always reliable.
Maybe it's 'cause there are a lot of hills around here,
but, my service doesn't work that well in this area.
A lot of times calls get cut off or the reception isn't good.
I can't hear the person on the other line.
Man: Yeah, I've had some friends say that too actually.
Woman: So it's good to have a backup option, something we can use if our own phones aren't working.
Man: I see what you mean.
But when you think of the money...
Woman: Well, I don't buy his argument there either.
Because I don't know if you've noticed this on the housing bill we get from the university,
but right now we only pay per call.
Man: Oh, really?
Woman: Yeah, so if you don't make many calls, you don't pay much.
I mean if you use it a lot,
of course, you'll pay more,
but students can avoid that if they just avoid using it as much as possible.
Man: Oh, I see. OK.
Woman: So I think they should just keep it the way it is now.
