That's right. Rest in peace, iPhone. See ya! Never wanna be ya!
I finally acted on my frustrations and threats. Frustration in not reliably being able to make or receive a phone call from my couch, or on my block, or three blocks from here. And threats like "I'm switching to a flip phone!" or "I'm going to throw you out the window!" And let's not even talk about the amount of times I've apologized for dropping calls. I used to make excuses: "Sorry, I must have hit a dead spot." "Sorry, I'm driving. Service is spotty." After about 50 of those, I started cursing myself: "Sorry, I'm an idiot & still have this stupid phone." I even told my friend to punch me in the face if I didn't have a new phone by the following week.
Well, that week was last week. I'm now iPhone free and couldn't be happier. I'm able to walk and talk - imagine that! I will say that the iPhone is King of Pretty & I do miss that. But with a 9 week old, when Pretty can't make calls, Pretty turns Ugly real quick.
This all said, if things go well with the iPhone/Verizon partnership in January, I might just have to switch back. What? I like Pretty. :)
