An Ode To My Old Phone (And Hello iPhone 4)!

MY VIEWS | | July 12, 2010 at 7:13 pm

I waited for the day. May 25th. I did. It was the day my phone contract expired. I was riding out my contract and trying hard not to be frustrated with my phone. So while I will be sure to share several posts about my new iPhone 4 – I wanted to bid farewell to my old phone (scroll to the bottom to see photo suggestions of this) .

To my old flip phone,
who did not deal well with me being accident prone.
I hate that every time you took a fall,
and every time you dropped my call,
I began to lose faith in you,
and began to dream of something new.
Remember how you showed your lack of abilities at a conference,
as I looked at you like a dinosaur appliance?
Sometimes you would just die,
and as I resuscitate you I would cry.
Sure you came back to life,
but you sure made me a whiny wife.
In the last few months even your hinges began to croak,
and I was scared that you had broke.
Oh, not because I loved you,
but really needed you around until my contract was due.
So long my razr buddy
I have a new friend who is not so cruddy!


So while I will be posting (boasting) about my new iPhone abilities, I wanted to figure out how to get “rid” of my old phone. So I was thinking…


I meant to add this before but like everything in my life, I just forgot. Thanks to all the emails, comments and tweets I am updating this post to include the disclosure below:

Disclosure: No phone, old or new, was (or will be) hurt in the crafting of this blog post.

    Thanks for expressing your ideas right here. The other thing is that whenever a problem appears with a pc motherboard, individuals should not consider the risk regarding repairing the item themselves because if it is not done correctly it can lead to irreparable damage to all the laptop. It will always be safe just to approach any dealer of the laptop for any repair of its motherboard. They have technicians who definitely have an expertise in dealing with notebook computer motherboard complications and can make right analysis and conduct repairs.

    Thanks for the ideas you have discussed here. Yet another thing I would like to mention is that laptop memory specifications generally increase along with other improvements in the know-how. For instance, if new generations of processors are made in the market, there is usually a corresponding increase in the shape preferences of both computer system memory and hard drive room. This is because the software operated simply by these processors will inevitably increase in power to benefit from the new technologies.

    Cameramen and videographers use large bright lights to make the scene look
    better. For most professionals, however, they
    believe it is fair enough to charge a minimal price.
    For the Gents: Keep their hair neat and wear shoes
    with designs that match the fabric of their clothing.
