I Have a Cool Phone--and My Kids Don't

My poor children--there they are, stuck in the technological dark ages with their pitiful little flip phones. Sigh. I feel so sorry for them. My cell phone started dying last week, with the screen gradually turning white. At first I intended to try to nurse it along until our contract was up in the fall and it was time to renew and for everybody to get new phones--until i realized that I was doing exactly what I went ballistic over with DD. I'll be on the road this week, taking back roads with a phone that is not reliable. So I spent the obligatory two hours at the phone store and emerged with a COOL PHONE. I've never had a cool phone--last time we got new ones, I was thrilled to get a camera and a little button to immediately turn off the ringer when it goes off in church b/c I forgot to turn the sound off, :(. This phone is red, has a slide out QWERTY keypad, and a whole set of really cool smileys. After about an hour and several trips through the manual, I figured out how to make a call. Then I figured out which side to listen to. I've sent several texts and two actually had messages in them. I'm not sure what the musical notes on the menu screen mean, but that just adds to the adventure. DS has been seen picking it up, stroking it in a longing manner, putting it down with a sigh. Did I mention it came with a protective cover---and it's PURPLE!!!! Bwa-ha-ha-ha!!

I had to laugh. My phone's pink. I'm not a real pink person but my husband isn't likely to confuse it with his. I had to get it before the contract was up because my dog ate the last one. It's always something. Have fun!

Congratulations on your new cool phone! My phone is like your "old" phone, and I do like it but . . . sometimes I think about getting something "more modern" if/when it dies. Please keep us updated as you use your new phone. Let me know how you like that sliding QWERTY key pad, where are the #s on it? Same as on a keyboard? If I ever call you I'll just TALK REAL LOUD so you can hear me no matter what side you listen on.
P.S. Just in case, bring your manual with you - and have a safe trip!

About cell phones going off in church - that is my Mom's worst nightmare. She wanted me to set her ringer with Offenbach's "can-can" music, but I cautioned her about the whole church scenario, so she opted instead for "When the Saints Go Marching In". A few Sundays ago, her worst nightmare came true. She was SO embarrassed and couldn't find the right pocket of her purse to get it shut off! Funny thing was - as few people as we have in our little country church, the preacher thought it was someone else's phone (someone much younger). If Mom hadn't apologized all over the place after the service, he would have never known it was her! We just laughed and laughed. She was SO glad that she didn't let me set her ringer to The Can-Can.

Your phone sounds wonderful.... and purple? WOW!

You should get some milage out of this one for a good, long while.

Hey, we moms need to take these opportunities when we can get them.

(Still chuckling.)

Even Larry got a kick out of your message & he said good for you! We really need to get new phones too, but hope ours last at least through the summer.

I feel your pain with getting a new phone! Love it after a few months, but hate the introduction part! Love the color combo!

Good plan on getting purple cover. My last phone was pink - I live with 2 boys and a husband (and a male dog!) so this made it absolutely safe from them borrowing it!
