Black Berry UpGrade?Friday, June 19, 2009
For about a year now Blake has encouraged me to get on the band wagon and join the Irevolution by upgrading my well used, cute little pink razor to an Iphone. I have adamantly refused for many reasons:
1. I wasn't about to pay a couple hundred dollars for a cell phone that changes its colors once every 6 months.
2. I have seen Blake entertain himself with countless games during a little thing I like to call church and the idea of 2 Iphone owners with potential sacrament game playing possibility's would be to great for me to with stand.
I HATE the touch screen. I know, your probably saying but Tigan that is the coolest part. Well that may be true but those little buttons are the bane of my existence. I can't tell you how many times I have been unable to send a call, accidentally muted my conversation or retyped multiple texts because I just can't seem to get those buttons to work.
Anyways, yesterday after the hagglers had dispersed and Blake had shown off his shiny new wad of green backs. We decided to stop by the AT&T store. As we entered the store a sales women greeted use with a happy smile and I with a proud gesture told her I was eligible for an upgrade. She then asked me what type of phone I was looking for.
I don't really keep tabs on the cell phones offered by my cellular provider except that their commercials often feature catchy tunes which I subconscious memorize. But I decided that serenading this sales women with a personal montage of cell phone commercial anthems in order to find a particular cell phone might not be my best option and so I said... I dunno?
Which lead her to... "Have you thought about the Iphone?" I smiled and nodded and then politely declined. And then we searched through their countless other options and after about an hour I had finally narrowed it down to the Black Berry. After playing with all of its buttons (The real kind not the ones that you tap on a screen.) and organizing fictitious information in the calender, I was sold and just about to walk out with my cute new black berry pearl when... Blake pointed out that I wouldn't be able to get WiFi with this particular model.
.... No problem I said Black berry has like a billion models one of them has to have WiFi. Well one of them did the one that cost 240 dollars not the ever popular free or even the free after 50 dollar rebate but 240 big ones.
