My last cell phone was held together with packing tape. No, really, it was. I dropped it too many times and the back kept falling off. I thought that clear packing tape was a classier option than duct tape. (read that last sentence again when you need to feel better about yourself) Yes, it is a matter of degrees, but I do have standards!
It's not that I didn't want a fancy new phone with texting features and all that, but the thing was that if I got a fancy new phone I had to change calling plans. The newer calling plans offered fewer minutes for more money. Why would I pay MORE for LESS? Mama didn't raise no fool, so I"ll keep my packing taped cell phone, thankyouverymuch!
When we found out we would need new unlocked cell phones for living in the Bahamas, we did very little research. I wanted an iphone. Those guys are awesome. So my terrific sister secured two iphones for us from friends of hers who had recently upgraded to the 4G iphones. I had plans to restore some modicum of my coolness.
Yeah that didn't happen. See when we updated iTunes before turning them on it LOCKED the phones. That's not cool because locked phones don't work. I felt like this
Then I signed Jackson up for school. About 48 hours before he was to start I realized that if I didn't have a cell phone I would be chained to our home phone all day long. In case of emergency and all that.
When my hand was forced I went to the cell phone store and paid $50 for the least expensive model possible.
I was so pleased that it actually has some features that an iphone DOESN'T have.
Can an iphone listen to FM radio? Nope!
Can you make a fake phone call on an iphone? Nope! (Well you can, but you have to buy an app for that)
Take that apple!
