Fast forward a year and a half later and I'm wishing my plan would end already.
Even the keypad couldn't save it from its failings.
The problems were small but they continued to add up over time. First the battery had issues, the phone couldn't make up its mind on how charged it was. It would jump from full or 3 bars, to 1 bar, no bars, 2 bars, back to 3 and so on and so forth. The thing was that it loved pretending it had no energy even if I CHARGED IT THE NIGHT BEFORE. And it beeped every 5 seconds that it thought its battery was going to die.
And then the phone would suddenly shut down if you poked it every so slightly. Sometimes I would put the phone in my pocket, pull it out, and it would be dead. This resulted in a lot of missed calls and text messages. Other times I would slide the keypad out to type a text and the phone would go NOPE and shut down.
And of course the time the stupid phone almost cost me an interview.
Yes that is a phone going through a wall. Yes I wish that was my phone.
But fast forward to 2012. My plan has ended and that has allowed me to get something (hopefully) much better. I am the proud owner of a Samsung 551. It's an Android with touch screen capabilities AND a slide out keypad. Because I love being able to actually feel the keys when I press them.
I know it looks similar to the Rumor but I assure you it's not.
It's almost the same as the Samsung Gio except that the 551 has the keypad. So far I'm liking it. Still getting used to all the new functions and settings but I'm liking it so far. I haven't got any apps for it yet but I plan to soon.
Oh and before I forget. I have chosen my 4th resolution based on comments on my New Year's post. I'm actually combining D4's and Heddin's suggestions. So I'll be either reading a new book and/or finishing a game from my massive backlog of computer games per month.
And I eat too slowly so Mark's suggestion of eating flaming endangered animals becomes eating ash.
I'll see you guys Thursday.
