    Broke S3. Sprint replaced with iPhone 4s.

    So after chatting with Del a bit today I was outside smoking when my much beloved S3. Slipped and landed corner first then face down on blacktop.

    It all happened it slow motion. I could hear the "Nooo!" echo off the walls around me. I startled the guy next door, he came running to investigate.

    There it laid. I was shaking as I swooped down and snatched up my baby. Broken screen. Cracked bezel.

    I could see innards.

    For the briefest of moments tears swelled. Pebble blue scarred with pebble marks. Cracked glass, smashed plastic.

    I have insurance, so no biggie right? Well I'm poor, so the $150 deductible was a hurdle. I begged, borrowed, sold my Xbox to GameStop, and raised exactly $120.

    $30 off my mark. I gotta have a device.

    Long story and a lot of cussing later, Sprint rep took pity and bumped Cassie's upgrade. My choice was an s2, htc , or the iPhone, among other low end devices. All were out of stock except the iPhone. It was Apple or nothing.

    I took the 4s.

    How the hell does anyone type on this tiny screen? Why do I have to suffer with itunes? I hate this so much, I have tears of rage. I've thrown it into the yard. I've cussed it nonstop.

    I'm done. No more smart phones. Tomorrow I'm returning this (if I can get the dirt out of the nooks and crannies) and getting a dumb phone.

    Oh Boy! Oh Boy! I can´t wait for the comments...
    I´m very sorry the accident happened. Really. Wow, what a shocker. I cringed reading your thread.
    And then... my hair stood up, and everything else took a dip. (Just in case you misinterpret my meaning).
    But, I have doubts.
    Was this a way, a modus-operandi, for you to switch to an EYEPHONE? Or are you planning palming it off to the wifey?
    Do it Jay, that´s what I do with my wifey...
    Ahem, do you want to?

    I can't return it. Small crack in corner. Wife doesn't want it either.

    Siri is insufferable. How do you delete it?

    Personally, I feel better.
    Guess I'll activate that old Palm.
