In the past I've had awful luck with cell phones- I've washed them in the washer, flushed one down the toilet, lost a few, and generally go through cell phones pretty quickly.
This time, I've had the same phone for more that a year! Which is pretty amazing for me. Because I've never had a phone die from natural causes I wasn't expecting it to die so quickly! Just a few weeks ago the front screen stopped working and you could see just an eery blue color. Last week the #9 stopped working altogether. And lately it has been getting very, very warm when I charge it. It was time. Without a phone how would I talk to all my friends.... :o)
I've been looking online at all the different phones to replace it. I really wanted an I Phone...but I am with Telus and would have to switch to Rogers...not something I wanted to do. I have heard awful reviews of the Telus version of the IPhone and didn't want to chance it. So I compromised and got a phone that still has lots of great features, but isn't quite as "cool" as the IPhone. and So I decided on the Blackberry Curve. So far, I love it
I ordered it on Monday and it was delivered this morning. It was relatively easy to program and now I am learning how to use all the cool functions. It is easy to use, and I really enjoy the keyboard- makes emailing (and blogging) pretty easy! Hopefully I won't lose it, or wreck it, or flush it anytime soon!
