Tears began to flow

I know, I know, I have such an expensive phone I really shouldn't, but I do. Well, when I sit in the car I like something in between my legs- if my phone vibrates I can feel it. I don't have to go fumbling through my pocket causing a greater distraction. And today I paid the price- I had the phone in between my legs, scooted out to get out of the car, and the phone went with me. I hear a thud on the dirt (we have a dirt driveway), and I look down to see my iPhone's beautiful phone screen shattered in a million pieces. My heart sank and the tears started flowing instantly. I am so hurt!!! I can't afford a new phone at this time. I texted The Guy to see if by chance he had a spare. Not the best idea when you ended up with some crystal chips in your finger. He did have a spare at one time. Nope. I scoured ebay and found that most iPhones are $199+++ USED. I have 4-5 that are up for auction on ebay in mind to replace mine- all have slight defects, but for a couple months I can handle it. Spending that sort of money would be a stretch, especially because I'm saving up quite a bit for when I'm not working next year and am student teaching. I have money set aside for the new phone, but I really don't want to put it out for a replacement for this broken one right now. Oh well, that's life, and that's what I get for this. I do know I'm going to buy a much heavier super duty case than I had before. And can you say sad that I cried over a piece of technology? LOL!

Ouch sorry to hear :( I would go mad if my iPhone was broken. Do you think a case would have helped tho? I've heard that when people have issues with the phone its usually from the screen shattering.

May want to get a cheap phone until the 4g comes out. There suppose to annoyance a release date in mid-June.

Crap!! That sucks soooo bad!! I think having ur cell broken hurts more than it being stolen...i remember when my cell got just a scratch on it's surface and I was like spraying 'F*ck' in every sentence cmng out of my mouth!

I would advise u to get one of those pouches that fix on the belt....my cousin carries around that...i'm not entirely for those, especially since they seem like to be an accessory fr 35+ guys....n ur 22...bt i guess this is one time to make an exception!!!

Hope u get a new one soon!!!

Dunno if I posted fr it or not...but condolences fr the passing away of tht acquaintance!

Take care!

rlp340: I had a case on it, albeit a slimline case. I think maybe a more heavy duty one might have helped.

Phunk Factor: Thanks so much! There is a happy ending!

Aek: Maybe you just don't know what you're missing.
