Waiting for labor. Waiting for a smartphone. Kind of the same thing, at least in preparation and anxiety levels.
When Lucas’ phone smashed a few months ago, I knew it was time to upgrade both of our devices. We were eligible, we use them all day every day and I considered it a worthy investment. But I cautioned myself (and him) to wait. A new phone was a-comin’. And patience would be rewarded.
We’re iPhone addicts, all the way (although we recently got a Google Nexus 7, which operates on Android, and it’s sweeeeeet!) but I’ve never really been one to need the newest, flashiest, spendiest model. But the fates aligned this time and with our upgrade discount, it’s within our budget to NERD OUT over the iPhone 5.
Last Friday, I eagerly woke up and started the order process for two iPhones in his (black) and hers (white). Got the confirmation that they’re on their way and celebrated!
Now comes the waiting. Will they be here on 9/21? We’ll see! Apple sold out and moved the shipping date back but since I went through AT&T, all signs still point to on-time delivery. Our current phones are backed up and I’m ready to start the process of moving my stuff from one home to another.
Are you an iPhoner, a Droid or do you stick with something simpler?
