Did You Know?

Did you know that my hubby rocked my world and got me an iPhone for Valentine’s Day?

Well – not really, but we’ll say that to make him sound better, mkay?

We planned to head to Future Shop on Sunday afternoon to get his (broken) phone replaced and to get me an upgrade. Not hard to upgrade from nothing you know. Yes that’s right – I have not owned a cell phone for 2.5 years. SHOCKED?

We went into Future Shop to ask some questions and had some ideas of what we planned.

We came out two hours later, each with a pretty little iPhone 3GS in our hands.

While talking to the dude we figured that for what we wanted our phones for, it made sense to go with an iPhone. And surprisingly, the Dude’s plan is costing less than his previous plan had cost and will suit his needs much better. We have unlimited everything between phones, so I can text him incessantly while he’s at work.

I must say though – I never thought the day would come when I’d be competing with a piece of technology for hubby’s attention. No joke. My Dude hates technology. So to see him sitting beside me on the couch, unable to speak to me because he’s too busy downloading an app for deer hunting (yes, there’s an app for that), makes my jaw drop. Honestly, the boy doesn’t even have his own e-mail address. But now, he’s doomed.

Jealous!!! Although I have the older version of the iPod touch, which does pretty much everything BUT make phone calls... some day... sigh!

I just got my iphone 4 from Verizon yesterday and I am in LOVE. I have owned two blackberrys previously and the iphone is far superior. Great choice! :)

Woo Hoo! I'm converting over to the dark side of iphone ownership in a week and a half (when my upgrade is available). My hubs hated technology too. He checked his email once a year MAYBE but he did text me during the day. All he wanted from a phone was texting and calling. Now he has a Droid and I can't keep him off of it. I'm keeping with Angry Birds this week!

Welcome to my world. I lost my hubby to technology before I'd even met him.

I'm so jealous that you have a new phone period, much less an iphone! Yay for getting something of your very own and not having to share any more. ;) No more Evan mixs up! Ha!

Fun! I got my iPhone a week or two ago when Verizon came out with it - I had been waiting for them to get it on our network for a while and saved my upgrade. I love it! And my husband got my old Blackberry.
