We've been lusting after and researching iPhone for a few months, but it just wasn't in the budget for us - especially because the required data plans would double our phone bill and force us to switch providers. We thought maybe Christmas presents? But after the stress of ineffective cell phones while traveling, we had both had it. I picked E up from the airport (4 hours later than he planned to come in, and in a different airport) and we drove straight to Verizon to get iPhones.
Word to the wise - after a long stressful weekend of traveling, going to a cell store and getting new phones, starting a new plan and switching providers is not exactly the quickest, least stressful idea. After two hours in the store we left with my iPhone 4 and E would pick up his the next day.
We did some research on the 4S and decided that we'd rather pay the lower price for the 4 because it didn't seem like the improvements were that drastic.
One week into using it and my life has been so much easier! Especially while I'm traveling I love being able to look up places with free wifi, check-in for my flights online, find good restaurants, and get directions to them. And, after ogling all of your adorable istagram pictures, I've been taking plenty of my own!
I have to admit, I'm still not an Apple convert so I'm still getting used to the way Apple products work. It's not intuitive to me. But overall having the iPhone has made things so much less stressful and more convenient. The best part so far is a forever lasting battery life! (48 hours for the first two charges, now its about 24)
Here's a dump of this week's instagram pics. I'm on my way to eastern Washington for my final trip of the fall then I'm excited to get back into regular posting mode (and regular life!).
