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.
(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.)
