I have the original iPhone. My iPhone and I have been inseparable since the day I got it. It has not only saved my butt a few times, but has allowed me to run my business from other states...all while looking slick and cool.
I have been in denial for a while, but now see that my beloved phone is loosing the battle with age. It's getting close to four years old. Rarely does the phone ring any more...which is fine by me, I don't like answering the phone anyway. In the optimal situation, the phone will ring. It's kind of shocking when it does. However, most of the time, it sits next to me silent. Then when I pick it up to make a call, it will say 5 people have called, I have 3 voicemails, and 8 texts. I have no problem getting emails. I will get emails on the same phone, from someone telling me that they have been trying to call me. Really it fits my personality perfectly, it's just not conducive to running a business.
So after years of turning down Mario's suggestion of upgrading to the new iPhone, I finally caved. That iPhone 4 finally convinced me that it was time. You want to know what sold me? The camera and video options. It's now obvious what's important in my life. Two way camera, flash, video...yep. It wasn't the fact that the phone will ring when being called, or tell me I have a voicemail when it comes in and not an hour later...it was the camera.
After waiting a month for the hubbub to simmer down with the new iPhones, I finally decided to make the purchase...only to find out there was still a three week wait to get the phone. I put my order in online and prepared for the 3 week wait.
A week into the wait, I got an email saying my phone has been shipped! So today I wait. The FedEx site that I may or may not have check 5 million times, says it will be delivered before 3pm. Around 11am I decided to take the chance and go to the bathroom. As I was coming out of the bathroom, I heard the truck! Woo hoo! I ran to the door and stood there all excitedly...and then looked down and saw the door hanger saying that they tried to deliver, but no one was able to answer the door because they were in the bathroom pooping!!!! What I heard was the truck driving away!
I immediately got on the phone and called FedEx to see if they could make the truck turn around....pretty pretty please! They put a request in to have the deliver guy try again. whew! However, it's a request and although it's likely it will be delivered, it's not a promise.
Today, I hear every car and truck drive by the house. Everything sounds like that truck, but it's not. not yet anyway. I was actually fooled a little while ago by the local "produce" truck.( "Produce" is questionable. They deliver twice a day. Once in the middle of the day and once at 11pm. What produce are they selling at 11 pm!)
So here I wait...with a full bladder. BUT I WILL NOT STEP FOOT IN THAT BATHROOM UNTIL MY IPHONE IS DELIVERED!!!!! I WILL NOT MAKE THAT MISTAKE TWICE!
