Okay, this anniversary might not seem noteworthy. But it’s very special to me. I’m still truly, madly, deeply in love with my iPhone 4S.
It’s been one year and four days since I bought my iPhone. How do I know? I marked it on my calendar, that’s how important it was to me.
My iPhone has been such a useful tool and boost to my productivity. It meshes really well with my philosophy of letting things be easy. My iPhone allows me to do things in a few seconds with a few touches that two years ago might have taken me minutes and several devices.
That's my cat, Joe, on my opening screen.
I pay about $148 each month for my iPhone service, which includes 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 5 gigs of data. I don’t use anywhere near 5 gigs of data typically, but that level allows me to use my phone as a wifi hotspot, which is invaluable. When I’m notified that that $148 has been charged to my credit card, I never, ever think, “That’s so expensive!” Though the amount is higher than I’ve ever paid for cell phone I’m happy to pay it.
Here are just a few ways my iPhone makes my life easier:
And that’s just off the top of my head.
Am I tempted to trade in my beloved iPhone 4S for an iPhone 5? Not so much. (Though I do covet the 5’s sleekness when I handle it.) My 4S rocks just as much today as it did a year ago. When I’m eligible for an upgrade in another year I might go for it. But for now, I’m happy as a clam.
Happy anniversary, baby! I look forward to many more!
