Like billions of people my age, I love my phone. I take it everywhere. I update my statuses on it, I text people on it, I can even blog on it if I like. Many days, I carelessly drop my phone. With outstanding frequency, actually. I must drop it once a day. This morning, I swam for an hour and achieved my first parallel park since passing my driving test. I was feeling awesome. That was ying. Shortly to follow was yang. I dropped my HTC Desire and it has massive cracks all over the screen. *sigh*
I have had this phone for 14 months out of my 24 month contract. It kind of feels like an extra limb and I love it like it was my own child. Really.
The screen, remarkably, still works. They must’ve expected morons like me to drop it millions and millions of times. I can still text from it, play my games on it, etc. But, alas, it is already giving me a headache and my eyes are all dry from staring at it.
So here are my options:
- Going to my phone network’s shop and seeing if they can fix it. This might cost a small fortune. In fact, it will do.
Buy a cheaper non-smart phone.Not really an option. Need my smart features.
- Buy another smart phone. But this will cost even more moneys, particularly as I’ll be buying without a sim card. BAH!
