So I am thinking about finally upgrading my phone. I have had 5 phones in my life, starting with a prepaid phone in high school.
I have never had a high tech phone. I have never even had a phone with a camera. Nor have I ever wanted one. I have always wanted just a simple phone that I can make calls on and text. And it took me a bout a year to even get into texting. That actually didn't happen till I started talking to my boyfriend, before we were actually dating but that is besides the point here.
The point is it has been 7 years since I got my first cell phone and I really need to upgrade. I want to stay up with technology and hopefully get a career in the digital field so learning how to be digital and connected is important. What easier place to start than with my cell phone. It is something I use on a daily basis already.
I want to get a smart phone. Currently I need to save up to buy a new phone but I think I am ready. I even think I am going to go ahead and get one with a 4G network and face time capability. If I am going to do it why not do it big.
I like the iPhone, my sister has had one since the very start, and I do mean day 1. I have learned to use one a little from messing with hers but I am still no pro. Unfortunately iPhones are a bit out of my current budget. I already have Metro and can upgrade my phone without really changing my phone bill so that is what I think I shall do.
I'm a bit nervous but I think once I make the change I will learn and adapt quickly. Everyone has to start somewhere and I think this will be it for me.
