Donny's Ramblings

Give In To Temptation? Decisions…Decisions…

18 Comments

I told myself I’d wait until Generation 2 at least. I told myself there was no reason to switch carriers or to spend the money right now.

I’d read article after article. I read review after review. I watched videos. Yeah, it looked really cool, but I could wait.

The local Cingular/AT&T store had a demo in stock.

“I’ll check it out, but just for fun,” I told myself.

I played with the phone for a good 20 minutes and then walked away, proud of myself for not purchasing one.

A few days went by. I couldn’t get it out of my head.

“I’ll just check and see how much of a credit deposit they want from me,” I told myself. “After all, I have really crappy credit after having the house foreclosed upon, 2 cars repo’d, and misc other credit problems. I’m sure the deposit will be HUGE. That will keep me away.”

It wasn’t as bad as I thought. But I walked away again, proud of myself for doing so.

The day before yesterday I succumbed to temptation. I couldn’t take it any longer: I had to have one!

I bought an iPhone.

It rocks!

(Wendy uses AT&T wireless, as does my best friend John. My calls to them are now free.  I have therefore saved myself some money, you see?!  At least that’s how I’m justifying this decision.)

  1. Ha. I bought one too. I love it. ATT is mediocre for service though. The iPhone is great…especially for people in business like ourselves.

  7. It’s okay Donny! Glad you got it.
    I will probably never have a cell phone. The numbers are hard to see on them and I don’t hear well on them. (Am I showing my age?)
    Enjoy your iPhone!

  9. You lucky Dog!

    I can’t wait to check it out! I’m pretty happy with ATT’s service. ATT and Apple… Great combo!

  11. Boy, if I didn’t already have a Palm Treo that I love and could wait until generation 2 comes out, I’d have snapped one up too. 🙂

  13. My husband wants one but we both go through cell phones every year and a half or so and I am so afraid that we’d have to buy another one in a year or two. They’re way too expensive for that…but way cool.

  15. Heh…was there any discount with a contract length?

    I’m holding out for bigger memory, direct iTunes connection and streaming audio. So, generation 2 for me! Seriously, if this is supposed to replace my iPod and phone, I’m gonna need at least 20 GB in memory.

    Yup…I’m a geek, too 🙂
