I have put off getting a new cellular phone for a long time now. The one I was using was definitely archaic but I really didn’t use it all that much.
Since I don’t like talking on the phone (at all), I really could have cared less about all the features new phones have. I just wasn’t interested.
I also had to make sure my new plan would have service in the area where we will be living (since it’s rural). It had to be tested and well, the excuses were just endless for not entering into another new cell phone contract.
The iphone didn’t excite me, since I am not into Apple anything, and all the others, well…meh.
That is until I got my new Blackberry Storm.
I now fully understand the term CRACKBERRY.
Between taking pictures, setting the GPS, playing Word Mole and BrickBreaker, sending/receiving email, voice recognition calling and browsing the web…I AM COMPLETELY ENTERTAINED. Completely.
It’s truly like crack (not that I know what crack is like but I’ve heard things). I had no idea. Why didn’t anyone tell me?
My whole life is now being meticulously managed by the Blackberry. Funny, but I could still care less that it’s a phone…I just like having mini-computer capabilities where ever I am. Who knew I even wanted that? I didn’t. But now that I do, it better not EVER be taken away.
It’s for addiction reasons like these I will never join social networking sites like Facebook or My Space..too much of a rabbit hole. I’m sure I would never get out.
So, is there a downside…well, with all the unlimited calling, messaging, texting, internet browsing, GPS-ing, Blue-toothing and emailing features…my cellular phone bill is now triple what it used to be.
But I can’t live without my fix…so yeah, what to do?
Pay I guess.
Anyone else on crack?
