So there's a small chance that we'll actually be upgrading our phones this Christmas! It's mostly out of necessity, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to be in the cool iPhone crowd. Actually, I don't feel uncool with the phone I have now (Motorola NV 2). I couldn't care less about what someone thinks of my phone--it just makes sense to get one, since I have a Mac. Not only that, but it can be an iPod (which I've wanted for YEARS) and a camera (which is broken for me and has been for months). I got my hopes up about it, but I wouldn't be heartbroken or anything if I was stuck with my same phone for a little while. I love my phone and it works perfectly. There isn't anything cosmetically wrong with it--it's not broken up or dented or cracked or anything. But Verizon is sort of forcing us into getting a smart phone by making all the phones like the one we have sucky. The closest ones looks way cheap and awful. And they're half the price of an iPhone anyway...so...it makes sense. The only thing is that going to a data plan would almost double our bill. That's what's slowing us way down.
I'm not holding my breath that it'll work out, but still. I'd be lying if I said it didn't trump all my other Christmas wishes.
