So I got a new phone. This may not seem like Earth shattering news but to me it's sort of a big deal. I've had my previous phone for close to 5 years now and have enjoyed it's indestructible qualities and lack of high tech hassles.
Meet the Samsung BlackJack II.
My phone/side kick for the past 5 years. This birthday gift from the summer of 2007 was damn near unstoppable! It survived being dropped, wet, smashed with weights and hit by drum sticks and kept on ticking. Sure, it stopped vibrating, recording/playing video or music, was locked out of my voicemail account and stopped connecting to the internet, but I still loved the damn thing. No expensive data plan or voice mail hassles meant a cheap phone bill and ability to dodge people I wanted to avoid (ie: work). Sadly, sometime last week my precious phone stopped reading it's SIM card meaning I could no longer receive or send calls/texts. Not only that, but I couldn't even access all my contacts either.
This tragedy forced my hand. I begrudgingly upgraded to...*gasp* an iPhone.
finally caved/sold out
Yep...I had to step into the 21st century sooner or later. Now I have a fancy smancy iPhone (with expensive date plan & all =/) but I swear I'm still the same black hearted jerk I was before, please don't mistake me for an Apple douche! I've had this phone for almost a week and as much as I loathe typing on the touch screen I gotta admit, it's a damn cool.
In fact, this is how I look walking around with my new phone:
Yeah I choose a iPhone4 because it was $100 cheaper than a 4s and I really don't need that Siri contraption to guide my life.
