I got my first phone about 10 years ago (see…again the 20/10/5). It was a simple flip phone from Sprint. This is a relic. But it was a great phone. It did what it was supposed to do: answer calls! No text capabilities, but it had a nifty calculator. Oh, that was my beloved egg. I found it the other day. There is a picture of it somewhere in my main computer’s hard drive. I will try to find it.
As time went on, my cell phones changed. But everything got better with the introduction of the Sidekick by T-Mobile. I think this was an early shot at the android/iPhone type of phone with apps. etc. I loved loved loved that phone. For whatever reason, I changed it to a pink RAZOR flip phone. You remember those? Yeah, they were cool. But I missed the Sidekick. It was a great phone!!!
From there, other phones came and went. I wanted to have the feel of the Sidekick so I went for another one. Little did I know that the information inside it was stored in the cloud. T-Mobile and Microsoft had an outage issue where the phone showed an error/no network connection. Since I owned a Sidekick before, I did a reset. It was the thing for this type of issue…except, this was not a typical issue. My data was wiped cleaned. I lost pictures of Paczki.
I got another T-Mobile phone. I wore that thing down. Then onto something else. Finally, I got a Windows Phone. BEST PHONE EVER. Sadly, I washed it with some laundry last year. Oh yeah….I didn’t back up my pictures and videos. I lost many videos of K2. One would think I learned my lesson with the Sidekick. NO!!!
Because I am addicted to my phone, I couldn’t wait long enough for the new Windows 8 phone to come out so I went for a Galaxy S3.
But, something is missing. I don’t quite feel like I have my phone….the one I could use for a while.
I am itching to get a new phone. I found the one I want: Galaxy Note 2. Since the new note is coming out, the Note 2 is no longer being sold. I don’t feel like giving T-Mobile upwards of 300.00 plus payments for the Note 3.
That leaves two choices: the iPhone or a Windows Phone. Right now, there is not a windows phone I want. I am lukewarm on the iPhone. Both systems will work well with my other tech devices.
NOTHING IS QUITE LIKE THE SIDEKICK OR THE FIRST WINDOWS PHONE.
The itch is still here.
I want something new.
