Yesterday afternoon Matt brought me a new toy from the AT&T store. I can't believe he's enabling me like this - but after years of insisting that I only needed/wanted a 'phone', I started to get sucked in by the beauty and versatility of the iphone. It does so many, many things! If I had an iphone, I would be able to check email and the weather wherever I was. I could even BLOG on it!
My last cell phone was the 'free' one you get after completing your contract - because I didn't want to spend any money on it - and it was 4 years old. While it had a camera, I didn't have whatever you needed set up to be able to send pictures anywhere - and they were crappy anyway so it didn't really matter.
I know Connie (Young and Relentless) loves her iphone, and I think Jen (Tatertots and Jello) did a post recently about all their neat features - and I started to think about having one. The clincher for me was when Jason got his hands on Matt's Blackberry 2 weekends ago, and it has this feature (unknown to me or I would have grabbed it from him right away) that, even though the keypad is locked, you can make an emergency call on it. The police showed up at our driveway for a 911 call. Because these phones have GPS in them, the 911 system was able to identify EXACTLY where we were - normally a cell phone call can only be narrowed down to a 1/4 mile radius. Matt isn't quite sure he's thrilled with this feature, however I would like the emergency crews to be able to FIND ME and my 4 kids when I'm stuck in a blizzard God only knows where someday and we're eating snow to survive.
So now I have my handy new iphone that I'm going to load up with all kinds of fun stuff (did you know there is a massage application?!), I've got all my itunes loaded on it (Twilight soundtrack anyone?), and Matt has phone envy. Thanks honey! :)
