The Phone Decision Has Been Made…

What’s the verdict you ask? Which phone will serve all my texting, Internet browsing, Tweeting, Facebooking, and picture-taking needs for roughly the next year (hopefully longer)?

I went with the iPhone!

Probably not a shock to most of you, but I was kind of surprised that I ended up taking the plunge. I’ve been a Blackberry girl for as long as I can remember, and I thought the QWERTY keyboard was really important to me. Yet after playing around with the iPhone, the Droid, and the newest versions of the Blackberry…I just knew! When I was in high school/college and just used my phone for e-mail/texting and to browse a few sites, it didn’t really matter if my phone had a great camera, or could record videos and send them right to You Tube. Now that I have a job and work in social media, it’s important that I’m able to record a little video, edit it down, and send it to You Tube, Facebook, etc. It’s important that when I take a picture you can actually tell what it’s a picture of when I post it to Twitter. Basically, I need a real gadget now (as much as I didn’t want to admit it).

I was resisting the iPhone because I don’t like how people get all “iPhoney.” I also don’t like their stupid, pretentious commercials, “If you don’t have the iPhone you don’t have blah blah blah. If you don’t have an iPhone, you don’t have an iPhone.” Well, duh. I’m aware that if I don’t have the iPhone … I don’t have the iPhone. Thanks for shedding a little light on that subject. You don’t need to be a pompous a-hole about it. But I’m putting iPhone stereotypes aside and am looking at it based on what I need from a phone.

When I first got to Verizon I was actually leaning towards the Droid, but after messing around with it for a little bit it felt cumbersome. The touch-screen keypad felt smaller and harder to use than the iPhone. Also, I’m already used to Apple products ( I have the iPad and a Mac) so I think the learning curve will be less steep for me on the iPhone.

I was so excited to get the phone, but of course they have to ship me one and I won’t get it until Monday. It’s because I’m on the company plan. I tried to convince the guy to switch the phone over to my name and then switch it back, but somehow he wasn’t falling for that. Damn. Oh well, I didn’t even realize my current phone was broken for two days. I think I’ll live.

So that, my friends, is the verdict. I am joining Team iPhone after many years on Team Crackberry. Welcome to the Dark Side.

  1. I made the switch from blackberry to iPhone last month. I was really torn because I love QWERTY keyboards and despise touch screens, but the web browser is so much better on the iPhone that I couldn’t resist. And of course I am shallow and the iPhone came in white, so there’s that.

    I hope you and your iPhone are very happy together!

    • Hi Jordan! Your comment makes me feel like I definitely made the right decision! I love QWERTY keyboards too, but I’m excited for a faster web browser (and a white phone…oooh) I have a feeling this is the start of a lovely phone relationship=) Thanks for reading!
