YESTERDAY, EMILY AND I got our new iphones. She is beyond thrilled and is busy texting and surfing the Web. I am trying to find my phone, and see if I remember how to turn it on.
We are going shopping for cases this morning. Gosh, if that doesn't describe the modern family .... it used to be we'd go to a game or ice cream or walk down to the creek. Today, we cell phone case shop. Yup. It's a new way to describe a verb.
When we first got them, we turned her phone on, and then I got an email saying there was a problem and I had to call Apple. In turn, we were connected with our provider, and turns out there was an issue on their end keeping us from activating the phones.
The service provider was very good, full of corny jokes and small talk. It took about half an hour to figure things out. "I think our computer here is wonky," he said.
There was also a lot of talk about "parking" and "negotiating with the host," which I assumed meant talking to the aliens who run our cell towers and phone companies. Ahem.
This is the best experience I've ever had with a phone or internet related issue. Duly noted. So now Emily and I are going to look for cases.
I'm ready to go.
Have you seen my new iPhone anywhere?
