New Phone

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.
RIP
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:
*NOTE* 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.

  4. You got an iPhone? I don't know you any more dude. Though nah. I know the joy of having an old indestructible phone. I had one for five years myself before I upgraded, and I only upgraded mostly out of convenience. My old phone still works, even with a huge crack down the screen.

  7. wow! this is so envious. I was thinking of buying a new phone too, my brother wants me to choose a phone for my birthday and I only have very limited options, like..

    sony ericsson experia series..

    do you have any idea how confusing this is for me? hehe..

    I don't know what to choose between mini pro, ray, arc s or neo? haha

    Have fun with your new phone..gosh! ^_^

  8. Nice! I was skeptical about the 4, but i've had mine for a couple of months now, and it never ceases to stop blowing my mind, especially coming from a weak Bberry.

    Make sure you read up on all the shortcuts/quirks, they really do make all the difference.

    Let me know if you find any apps that you especially like, I can share my finds with you as well, if you want.

  14. The iPhone 4 is a solid phone if you're willing to do a bit of tweaking. I had one for a while and really enjoyed it.

    I have a Samsung Blackjack as my backup phone. I've had it for years and you're right, it is a workhorse. It has outlasted every other phone I've ever owned aside from my old Motorola V551 (That thing could survive a direct nuclear attack).

  15. Why didn't you stick with Android phones? Why did you switch to Apple, why?!
