Ode To My IPhone


Just in case you've ever wondered...this is what an IPhone 4S looks like after it is ran over by a CAR!  Yes, it was involved in a hit and run accident today.  My son dialed my number after the accident and the brave little phone tried to ring but it was more of a final gasp.  I had a screen protector for it that was guaranteed for the life of the phone, but it didn't do much good in this instance...so hard to get good quality products anymore!

I am sad about my phone, but thought I'd just go to my cell provider and get another one...WRONGO!  Because I was not eligible for an update on my service, I was told I would have to pay retail price for a new phone to the tune of $700!  I about cried!  Here I was holding my dying  phone (maybe it was dead already) and now I was going to be charged more than double what this phone cost me new!  Insult to injury in a nano second!  The other option was to add a line to my contract and not use that line so I could get the phone for a better price.  That made sense for about two seconds, but it may be my best option right now.  

I miss my phone.  I don't want to pay extra.  I just want Suri back.  I just want Shazam to tell me what song it is I'm hearing.  I want my life that I had stored on this precious little friend that went everywhere with me. 



Thanks for listening to me whine.  Thanks for reading.  This is my 100th post and I was a little worried about what I would write.  As usual, life wrote the post for me--I just had to type it.

  4. I think that A lot of the developers trying to create mobile computing applications today don’t have a lot of experience with the backend server technologies needed to deploy a robust mobile computing application.

  7. I've found that it isn't safe to take your phone out, unless you have it on a leash. You just can't trust a smart phone not to run directly into traffic. Sorry for your loss!

  10. Oh this just makes me ill for you! I cracked the screen on my Original iPhone but luckily it still worked! Don't know what I'd do without my 4S. I have a similar photo of my dad's $800 iPad that he left on his hood then drove down the highway... yeah, you can imagine.
    I did also want to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment on my lat/long sign post! So sweet!!
