Out with the old, in with the new, but in the meantime…

iphone dead

So my iPhone died on Friday night. I went to recharge it and when I returned, it was just stuck on the apple screen. Major BOO! I tried to recharge, restart, everything. Then I took it in on Saturday to the AT&T store, and the guy said it was dead and that I could fix it, but I could also upgrade to the new iPhone 4. I’ve wanted the new iPhone since it came out, but I guess it is good I waited since they went ahead and let me upgrade now. I’m super excited about the multi-layer functions, the better camera, and the video access. YAY! It will be great to have that all on my phone The thing is that they didn’t have any available and I have to wait about 2 weeks to get it. So, in the meantime, this is what I’m using…

this old thing

It’s my very first phone from like 7 years ago. No bells and whistles at all. I could find the cord and the charger for it, but not my second phone. Yikes. I was talking on it several times tonight, and even though it was charged, it turned off while I was talking. I don’t know why. I’m going to have to search more for that other cord, but I think I may have given it away to Goodwill. Whoops.

So, I’ll be disconnected for a couple of weeks. Just being disconnected from my smart phone has made me kinda realize how I’m constantly connected to it. I realize that’s part of the reason I get stressed out about talking on the phone as of late. I’m immersed in the phone (checking e-mails and sites) and online so much, that I don’t want to have anything to do with it when I get home. That’s so not good.

WEll, anyway, hope you guys are having a great week!

Until next time Swellions!

    Bummer! My iPhone 3G seems like it is on its way out too. Using that old phone is pretty bad, but at least you have one to use! I had a friend with a phone even worse than yours now. She had a nice one and dropped it in a toilet! From then on her old replacement was nicknamed “the brick”.

    Hope your new phone comes soon 🙂

    The AT&T store told me the same thing – that the iPhone4 was sold out, no one has it, must pre-order, must wait 2 weeks. Then I walked over to the Apple store and bought it. No pre-ordering, no 2-week wait. Just walked out of the store with it.

    Then I went over to the AT&T store with my new iPhone, just minutes after they told me that no one has them, to take care of some admin stuff on my account.
