so i got an iphone.

I have been hemming and hawing (actually mostly hawing) about what to do about my aging blackberry for the last year. Seriously, I like to plan shit out. I know this is a white whine but OMG THE DAMN THING WAS DRIVING ME NUTS. It kept freezing up, requiring me to pull the battery out for a hard restart multiple times a day. And don't even get me started on the camera quality (just brutal). The challenge of course, is that I have a lot of friends with blackberrys (blackberries?) and I have become accustomed to using bbm to text with them. So, I had been hanging on to the delusion that I would merely upgrade my blackberry to a new bold or something like that.

Didn't happen.

The moment I set foot in the phone store, I was sucked into the gravitational field of the shiny and sexy and everything I've ever wanted iPhone. I will say that I asked the sales guy for advice. He suggested that if I was mostly using my phone for things like facebook and twitter then the iPhone was the way to go. And really, that's all it took.

The thing I was most nervous about was the touch screen business for texting. I'm still getting used to it, but I'm finding it pretty easy. I really have no complaints about this phone. It's faster, has better apps, is easier to use, takes great pictures, and did I mention it is a really, really good looking?

So, if you have been thinking of dumping your blackberry for an iPhone, my reco is to DO IT. The grass is greener on the other side. You will not believe what you have been missing. I bet you will want to kick yourself for waiting so long to switch. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go take some more cute pictures of my kids with the Hipstamatic app.


  1. Love love LOVE my iPhone. And Angry Birds. LOL

  2. I love it too. I think I need to give it a name...

  3. Did you go big and get the 32 ? I am on the edge..might cheap out and go 16 tho. White. I've been pining away for-EVAH ~

  4. I heart my iPhone and Instagram. They are both full of awesomeness!

  5. actually, I just got a confirmation email that mine is on it's way. I had been wondering as I ordered online last week and hadn't heard anything back yet. Now I wait in anticipation..hoping I don't regret not getting the bigger memory.

  6. I got the 16GB - not the 32. :-) You'll be fine!
