The countdown is on. This beauty shall be mine:
Unfortunately, it won't be mine today, but on November 15. I have to wait until I'm eligible for an upgrade with Verizon. But, considering how long I've been waiting to ditch my crappy Blackberry and get my hands on an iPhone, one little measley month is not that torturous!
I've had a Blackberry for several years now. I got my first one (a Pearl) in 2008, not long before Michael and I were married. At the time, it was just.so.cool to be able to have internet! and e-mail! on my phone, so I was a happy camper.
When I was eligible for an upgrade again in March 2010, I went into the store knowing that I wanted to get a Blackberry Tour. The sales guy tried to sell me on a Droid, which at the time were still fairly new and not as commonplace as they are now, so I stood my ground and told the guy to get me my Blackberry!
I regretted that decision shortly after.
I soon realized the limits of my Blackberry compared to other phones, and when I started voicing those limits out loud, one of the digital guys at work said (and I'm paraphrasing), "Get rid of the Blackberry. You have to get an iPhone or a Droid." *BIG, HUGE SIGH* I've hated this Blackberry all along, and have been not-so-patiently waiting for my next upgrade to come around. At the beginning, it seemed impossibly far away, so knowing that there are only FOUR MORE WEEKS left with this piece of crap is great. Plus, Apple decided to give me a little present and release the iPhone 4S just as I'm getting ready for my upgrade. Hooray!
Anyone in the same boat as I am, not-so-patiently waiting for the iPhone? Any who prefer Droid? Is there anyone who is actually loyal to Blackberry at this point (seems rare)?
For all of you who are enjoying your new iPhones today--color me jealous.
But not far behind.
