For the past four years, this little guy and I have been very close.
I got the ENV2 for my 20th birthday, and in our fours year together, we rarely spent time apart. It was my first phone with a full keyboard, and I felt so “cool.”
And then the ENV3 came out. And smartphones, and phones with touch screens — and my little ENV2 was a thing of the past. But, I just couldn’t seem to part with it — why spend all that money on a new phone when my phone was working perfectly fine?
Until about a year ago, that is. It started turning off randomly, the keys started peeling (see image above), and text messages would only send about 50% of the time. Clearly, it was time for me to get a new phone, but I still couldn’t stand to upgrade.
Then last week happened. I missed three phone calls and four text messages over the course of the day because my phone decided to have a huge delay. A couple of the calls were pretty important, so I hit my breaking point.
Two days later, I was on Apple.com (check it out if you’re ready for an upgrade — it’s cheaper than Verizon!). Yesterday, this landed on my doorstep.
My iPhone and iPhone case. I have finally joined the 21st century! Even though it pains me to have to pay $30 a month for a data plan, I think my phone and I will be very happy together.
Oh, and if you’re curious, I did not buy the iPhone 5. Clearly, I’ve never been one to run out and buy the newest gadgets as soon as they come out . My 4s will be just fine .
Do you feel the need to buy the newest gadgets?
Do you have an iPhone?
