I was down in San Diego today for a conference. Went well. We’re over and done with, and we’re heading out. I stop in to use the restroom. I come out. I realize my cell phone is missing.
I had it just 30 minutes before, when I checked my voice mail. It has to be somewhere in the hotel. I spend half an hour looking. I can’t find it. I try calling it, to hear it ring. Nothing ( I had it on vibrate so not to disturb everyone else at the conference).
I’ve given it several text messages and left voice mail, hoping that someone will notice the constant vibration, and read the text message asking them to call me at home. So far, nothing.
Tomorrow morning, I go into verizon and get a new phone. I stopped by there tonight, but they were completely full. As I am under contract right now (for another year), to replace this phone I have to pay full price. They don’t have the same model any more, and none of the current ones look that stable and abuse friendly. Any suggestions? Should I stay with a flip phone, should I make the switch to a blackberry or trio style phone? Real email from the phone has some draw for me, I admit, but I don’t know if it’s worth 500 for the phone, and an increased monthly bill.
So, any thoughts?
