I have wanted an iPhone for what feels like aaaages, and now I finally have one! Finally! ;)
Like a lot of things I do, I bought this on a whim today. My mom, sister and I were at breakfast this morning and they got to talking about the games they play on their Droids and at that point I had just had it!
I wanted to play Angry Birds, Words with Friends or Doodle Jump!
But, nooooo. I was a Blackberry user and couldn't get those fun games and apps. My contract wasn't up for a LONG time and I wasn't due for any upgrades so I had just planned on waiting... but, after breakfast this morning I couldn't wait any longer.
We headed straight to the mall to pay a visit to Verizon. My mom thought it was a little ridiculous (but now that she is playing Words with Friends with me she seems pretty happy!).
After talking with my friend Lesli about what she did, I realized that the way to go was to add another line to our contract for $10 a month and pay $199 for the iPhone. Seems a bit much, but I get a feeling I won't get sick of this phone after 6 months like I do every other phone!
I'm not extremely frugal with my money - I definitely have room to improve, but I don't make big purchases like this very often. And I don't randomly buy $100 fleece jackets right afterwards either...
Yeah, you read right. While walking through Scheels on our way to the parking lot I stopped in the North Face section. There was of those super soft jackets left that I had been eyeing for the past few weeks and I just couldn't resist... I bought it. It still has the tags on it so if I am still sick over my frivolous purchases this week I can return the jacket (something tells me I won't though... ).
I already have Words with Friends (username: AmberWDM) and Angry Birds. What other apps do I just HAVE to get for the iPhone?
