Another Cell Phone Bites the Dust
I was so excited when John became a Sprint employee. Not because of all the late hours he gets to work . . . nope, I was excited about our fabulous new phone plan!
After checking out all the phone available, I decided to go with the Razr. I really wanted it in pink, but it was only available in red. Such a tragedy. Yes, my friends - look is much more important to me than cool gadgets.
Well, in one year, I've gone through TWO of those red Razrs.
After about eight months, the first phone decided it only needed to set off my morning alarm every once in a while. Let me tell you, we had some pretty crazy mornings! Then I mad my hubby set an alarm on his phone (for some reason we don't use our actual alarm clock. I can't remember why . . . ) So I learned to live with the alarm working only sometimes. But then, it stopped ringing. Not all the time . . . just sometimes. So I'd miss calls, texts, etc.
Time for a new phone.
My hubby took it in to the employee store and the replaced it with another red Razr.
Two months later - adios telephone.
This time though, it was my four-year-old's fault. I had my cell in my church bag. Apparently my four-year-old wouldn't stop running around my classroom, tripped and fell on my bag. His knee had excellent aim and totally smashed the cell's front screen.
So, back to the employee store. But this time, we got good news. I was eligible to get another phone! Yipee!!!!
Now I'm the owner of a very pretty PINK Katana. So far, I really like it. It's very musical - seriously. Each key has a different note, just like a piano. It's really fun to listen to when I text. Very melodious. :) This phone also has way more ringers to choose from - and ones that I'd actually want to use, rather than having to purchase a ringer to download.
And that's the end of my little cell phone story. I hope everyone's New Year has started out on a fabulous first day. I know at my house, my hubby worked on my desk we've been "working" on since May. We made progress. Progress is good. And the best part was our traditional lunch & dinner of hot dogs, mashed potatoes, and sauer kraut. Yummy!!!
