Well, Since You Asked

Why thank you for asking...yes, I DID order a new phone. I have been pondering the virtues of a smartphone for 2 years. I have a spreadsheet made up. I have contacted numerous friends to get their input. I have talked to my service provider and other providers to see what the best deal is for me.
It only took 2 days with out internet access to push me over the edge.

Drum roll please........

It looks similar to this one. The Blackberry curve.
  • 3G speeds 
  • Music capable
  • Sprint TV®
  • GPS Navigation
  • Web browsing
  • Email
  • Camera
  • Bluetooth® Wireless
  • Memory card slot
  • Voice activated dialing 
  • Wi Fi  

I have been with Nextel/Sprint for over 10 years. I have NEVER owned a phone that didn't go "beep-beep" lol. But since my phone has essentially stopped ringing, beeping, won't take pics anymore and tends to "yell" at me,  I needed something new. Plus, and I'll admit this, I want to tweet from my phone. I want to check my emails, I want to facebook. I want to do all the cool things my friends do. Am I shallow? Probably. But since some of you may be reading this blog from your smartphone...let's not be name calling here ok?

So I have ordered and it is on it's way. I will have lots of cool apps and such to play with and that should keep me occupied  until the newest e readers come out. :)

It took me a few days without internet to upgrade, too. I had a Blackberry for a few years and LOVED it. Now I have an iPhone which is good too. Good camera on it. But I miss my Crackberry. Congrats on your new "baby"! Nothing better than checking facebook while standing in line at the grocery store.
