My New Phone

Considering I'm a web designer, you'd think I'd be more embracing of technology. And I do like gadgets. But I'm also a creature of habit.

I've had my Motorola ROKR for over two years. I loved it. I knew how to use it. It worked as an iPod and did everything that I needed and wanted it to do.

Except it stopped taking a charge. The charger port had some pins that got damaged and I couldn't get it to charge at all. Not very useful to have a phone that is dead. Especially considering it's my only phone. I don't have a land line.

So I went into AT&T to see what could be done. They couldn't fix the phone and I could get a free one--a bottom of the line that now does everything my top of the line ROKR did--if I renewed my contract. Okay fine. Free is good.

But I still haven't figured out how to work this phone. I can answer it. I did get all my info transfered over. And it does have the cool, old-fashioned phone ring on it. (I had to explain to my kids that, yes, phones did used to sound like that.) I suppose I should read the manual to figure out how to access my music and photos. I just don't have the time. Although I guess I could do it instead of writing this blog post!

I'm probably pouting a little. I still have my old ROKR in my purse. I don't know why. Not sure what to do with it. Maybe give it a decent burial?

Any ideas for a phone that doesn't work?

Yes, I do!
But it involves a vise and a hammer. (In case you haven't noticed, I despise cell phones.)

Isn't it amazing how attached we get to inanimate objects? Take a hammer to it. You might feel better.
