I got an iPhone this week.
I was able to find a great deal on a used iPhone 3g and a friend of mine had mentioned her success in using an unlocked iPhone with T-Mobile, who has been my carrier for the last 6 years or so. I was thrilled to get the phone, although unlocking it was not without some challenges (in other words, I just about pulled out my hair until I finally decided to take the phone down to the mall and talk with a guy at the T-Mobile kiosk. After an hour with that employee and another 30 minutes on the phone with another T-Mobile customer service rep, I was all set to go.
I am loving it.
I happened to get my new iPhone on National Pancake Day. We decided at the last minute (ie- 5:55pm) to head over to IHOP to take advantage of the free stack of pancakes per person. For a family of seven a free meal like that is a deal that’s hard to pass up. After 45 minutes of standing in a very crowded lobby with many, many teenagers, AJ was crying that he was “so hungry,” CandyMan was complaining that this had been a big mistake (grumble, grumble), and Reese was begging to be able to order something other than pancakes.
I was trying to enjoy the pancakes and the night off from cooking. I have to admit, despite the long wait, the grumbling family members, the very cramped seating arrangements (they tried to fit six of us in a 4 person booth), and the fact that we ran out of syrup twice, I really did enjoy my pancakes.
Sadly, the pancakes did not sit well with my stomach and my rumbling tummy led to a night full of strange dreams about being pregnant and needing to get to the hospital to deliver the baby.
No one has asked for pancakes the rest of the week.
My iPhone, on the other hand? Everyone is asking for it. And considering the kids’ recent misplacement of my iTouch in the laundry, I am guarding this phone very closely. No one but ME gets this thing!
