My Sprint contract was finally up (thank you Lord!) so it was time to get a new phone. If anyone remembers this sad, sad day (seriously - if that is the worst that happens in my life, I must be pretty darn blessed) then you would know that we decided to just endure the phone below until my contract expired. We were originally holding out for uVerse, but I had decided that if uVerse wasn't available in our area by the time my Sprint contract expired then I was getting a phone anyway.
It has been tough going the past few months. I mean put yourself in my shoes - unable to surf the web from my phone, unable to send and/or receive picture mail, and texting on this thing was a nightmare... and the reception, puh-lease! If you have a received a text message at all from me the past few months then consider yourself my good buddy because it took forever to type a simple message, and I have a hard time using abbreviated web spelling. I can't bring myself to do it!
I am so glad that I did not get a phone in April because at the time I remember vehemently declaring that I did not want a smart phone and I did not want to be soooo plugged in all the time! This was before I was without internet for over a month. This was before I had a beautiful little angel baby who I constantly want to share pictures and/or videos of. So over the past few months I have been slowly changing my mind until I finally decided that I wanted to just spend the money and get an iPhone.
This is a big step for me because I have only ever taken the free phone!!! So now you can count on hearing from me much more than you would like via Facebook status updates and/or pictures of Isla when I am out and about, frequent and verbose text messages, and lots and lots of videos and phone calls. :)
Are you starting to regret that Apple ever came out with an iPhone? Probably. I bet the only people who are excited are Cookie and Boo!
