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?
