R.I.P.

I didn't think it would come to this...you were my faithful companion for many years.  I tried to revive you, but you just didn't have any life left in you.  Rest in peace my old friend.










Yup, my old Blackberry finally bit the dust for good!  I took a very brave step today...



I am now the proud owner of an iPhone 4.  Since I HAVE to have a phone, mainly in case my girls need to get ahold of me for emergencies (which with my girls is EVERYDAY people)...well, not true emergencies but what they think are emergencies, I couldn't wait 30 days for the new iPhone.  And, I really didn't see that much of a difference to be honest to justify the wait and the bigger price tag.

I was really worried I would have a hard time texting with the touch screen.  I could text on my BB with the best of them.  To my surprise, I can on my iPhone too.  My girls are very proud!  LOL

I haven't had a chance to set things up on it yet, so for right now I can call out, receive calls, text and receive texts only.

So, what I want to know is...what apps are a MUST have?  Poor hubby...he'll be spending all evening after the volleyball match helping me figure this thing out.

You will LOVE IT! I am completely addicted to my iPhone. My fav apps: Pinterest, Houzz, People, Scout Mob, Scrabble, Google Places, Instagram, Food Network... just to name a few. :)

haha I thought you were going to be posting something Halloween related with the RIP! I'm sad your other phone bit the dust, but have fun with your new phone!! It takes me a long time to adjust and learn also. I have the Galaxy S from Samsung (very similar to the iphone), and I still don't know how to use everything on it. Have fun playing with your new phone!
