Is My iPhone A Cool New Gadget Or My New Addiction?

This past Friday afternoon was not like every other Friday afternoon. It was the day I got my dirty little paws on my first iPhone.

I was always that girl that didn’t really care about having the newest coolest tech gadget. In fact, I prided myself in having a phone to use it for what it was meant to do…make phone calls. I got so bad about this, I actually refused to pay for a cell phone. Verizon’s “new every two” was the thing for me. Every two years I got a new (and free) cell phone. These phones always had buttons. I thought that was the best part.

Here’s what old faithful looked like.

It wasn’t a bad little phone.  It served it’s purpose, plus had a slide out keyboard to accommodate my texting habit.

This phone has been dropped more times than I can even recall. The shell of it actually falls apart when I’ve dropped it over the past few months. Over the past weeks, it’s been shutting off if I try to send a picture message. It was time for a new phone. I had to bite the bullet. Thursday night I went on the Apple site and reserved my iPhone.

I picked it up along with a sweet new turquoise Speck Candyshell case and an anti-glare screen protector.

Oooh La La!


Siri is my new BFF. She is my personal assistant on my phone. I push the little button and ask her to remind me to email so and so when I get to work. As soon as I pull into the parking lot… “Mindy, don’t forget to email so and so” .

Unbelievable. How did I ever get by without this thing?!

Since Friday, I have become significantly more Tweetastic. I am obsessed with Instagram, the Pinterest app (obviously), words with friends, and the google translator. Did I mention that I’ve had this phone for 72 hours and I think my thumbs are going to snap off?!

Oh yea, I typed this entire post on it using the free WordPress app 😉


Do you have an iPhone?  Do you have an android phone? Are you completely obsessed like me?  Is this addiction curable?  HELP!

  1. I want an iphone. I used to be so against touch screens and new age technology but since I’ve had a decent phone I have loved it. On to bigger and better things. 😉

  2. I just got my first iphone a few months ago because old faithful (my blackberry) broke on me. So I bought a iphone 3G off of a friend. I HATE IT! At first, I was all “oooooOOo” and “aaahh” with it {Angry Birds, primarily}, but then it started getting super slow {And I deleted apps!}. Now, Facebook, Twitter, Angry Birds etc. won’t work properly on it and I have no idea why!

    But hopefully the newer models are much better than the 3G! I miss my blackberry 😦

  3. I have an iPhone and it is addictive. I’m also sure I’m missing half the things it can do 🙂

  4. I could use a new phone right now. I have an iphone 3G with cracked glass on the front and broken top button so I can’t turn it off. We just used my upgrade for my husband’s phone not long ago, so if I want to upgrade, I have to like PAY for it. Grrr. Congrats on your new phone! I’m jealous!

  5. I have an iPhone and I’m addicted. Once you have one, you’ll never switch to anything else! My only piece of advice, is that if you’re as clumsy as I am, splurge and buy an OtterBox case for it. Yes, the Speck case is pretty, but the OtterBox is pretty much indestructible, I believe they are a necessity for anyone with a phone that costs as much as an iPhone does.

  6. Oh my goodness that phone looks awesome! My husband got an i phone recently and it is amazing all what it can do. I know you will have so much fun using yours! I am having a giveaway and if you get a chance I would love for you to enter. Have a great week!!

  7. So jealous of you, I seriously want an iphone but fear I will become addicted to it! I am for an upgrade with Verizon though and am seriously contemplating if I should get one or not….

Let's talk it out
