I decided to get a new cell phone. I have had the same one for 6 years. It works fine but depending where I am I may not get a signal. I attribute that to the replacement battery I purchased after the old one stopped holding a charge.
I went to Verizon and after looking at the choices I actually logged off and questioned what exactly I wanted in a cell phone. My friend has a crackberry. I didn't care for the look of it. I thought I wanted a Droid or an Iphone but then there was the question of how many gigs did I want? Did I want something that required Apps? What color phone? Do I want a QWERTY keyboard? Do I want a touch screen? Do I want the phone to be smart or dumb? Shit, when did getting a new phone equate to getting a new car?
So I wrote out a list of wants and needs. I need to take calls, can't miss a DJ gig. Gerald Olivari never answers his phone so I need to be able to text. I don't need to get online. I have that access all day and night. I don't want an mp3 or itune player. I'm a DJ so I have all the music on my hard drive or little mp3 player I keep with me. I don't need an app to tell me where I am going; I have a GPS for that.
I went back online and searched for a new phone and after looking at the replacements I chose one. I am proud to say I am sticking with my old ass phone. When that fucker stops working that's when I will get a new phone.
