What's my big change? I have a new phone. Big deal, right? Wrong. I have been fighting this new phone thing for a long time. I have had the same phone since the beginning of 2005, which is actually a long time in the phone world.
The old phone
It is/was one of those indestructible "contractor" phones. The features were nothing fancy. Very basic - texting and talking. But it was great. I dropped it multiple times a day (not on purpose, I am actually just very clumsy). It got dropped in the snow, I accidentally left it outside overnight, I found it one time in the freezer...and STILL it was loyal to me. However, over the last year it has been acting up. Meaning, I would press talk to answer a phone call and the phone would just turn off. I suppose most people wouldn't have waited 6 months to finally do something about this inconvenient nuisance, but it took me that long to get used to the idea of a new phone. So, I now have a new phone (thank you Dad for picking it out, I never would have done it myself). I hope I will grow to love my new phone as much as I loved the old one.
