To Love And Have Lost Is Better Than To Have Not Loved At All, or, I Miss My iPhone
I have been without an iPhone for several months. I got rid of my iPhone so that I could save money. That sort of back-fired though. Here's that story:
"$30 a month is a lot," I thought. "My contract is up. I will use my free upgrade for a new dumb-phone, sell my iPhone on craigslist, and have an extra $30 a month." Unfortunately, in resigning my contract, I had to accept the new terms of AT&T texting plans. My old plan was defunct. All new plans were more texts and more expensive. I went with a family plan sized texting plan which ended up costing $25. I lost my iPhone for $5 a month.
Why do I miss my iPhone? Here's a partial list.
- Instant directions.
- Cataloging my life through pictures and twitter updates.
- My guitar tuner/metronome app.
- My voice memo app. (for recording song ideas)
- It doubles as a flashlight.
- A really solid alarm clock (with a custom playlist to wake up to)
- HD video.
- Not having everyone that calls me go "hey, let me call you back. There is a weird echo on the phone." (granted, that's more of a anti-current phone thing than a pro-iPhone thing, but still)
- Calendar access.
- Instant information. About anything.
Granted, that's just a partial list, but it's a start. Hopefully I will get another iPhone someday. Maybe.
