The Moment

I finally have a Smart Phone!

Some of you know how I've been drooling over the iPhone since...well, just forever. Since we use Sprint we couldn't get one. I've been waiting on my Palm Centro to die, but it was just indestructible! It would not give up. I've ben due for an upgrade for a very long time, but it seemed silly to get something else when my phone worked just fine and I couldn't have what I wanted.

While on "vacation" we were at The Parks Mall & we stopped by the Best Buy Sprint store.

I ended up getting a new phone. It's the Sprint SAMSUNG "Moment."

Tbe Best Buy guys at the store went on and on about this phone. They said it does 10 times more than what the iPhone can do. (what else are they going to say if they don't sell the iPhone?) It plays movies in HD. You can get APPS. It plays Music, you can get on the internet, it's a Camera & Camcorder. GPS & NASCAR LIVE RADIO. (You know I don't care about Nascar radio!)
Since I was up for an upgrade I got it really cheap. It sells for almost $700 and I got it for $99. Randy paid half so I really only had to pay $49.

They were right! The phone can do awesome stuff! I went from a phone where it's main function was calling people. This phone has caused the kids to ask all day, "Can I PLAY with your phone?" No one used to ever "play" with my old phone. It wasn't playful at all. It had one Suduko game on it, and that's lame! On this one they can watch shows from The Disney Channel on it.

So this awesome phone does amazing things. I've had to spend a lot of time figuring out how to Out Smart the Smart Phone.

One problem though...THE "PHONE" PART OF IT SUCKS!!!!!

Can you believe it?

It's been dropping my calls. Calling people unexpectedly. AND when I've been talking on the phone over 3 minutes the other person can no longer hear me. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT????

The most important thing it's supposed to do it can't do.

I've got 30 days to bring it back so I'm going to have to take it back. It's ridiculous! This totally awesome phone is totally awesome except for being a phone!

I'm hoping that I just got a bad one, and that when I exchange it, the phone part will be working better. I really do like this phone. It's fun. I just want to be able to talk with people on it as well as "PLAY" with it.

Karim, I'll make sure and give an update when I get the new phone so I can tell you if it's worth getting. Today I haven't had any trouble with the phone part so I didn't take it back today. I will give it a couple more days before I take it back.

If SHE can figure it out.......... said...

Just blog hopping - My husband works for AT&T and he won't get me an iphone......he thinks I'll waste too much time playing with it. Little does he know that when he's sleeping, I'm out blog-jumping (when I really SHOULD be doing laundry). Anyway, cute blog!
