My Long Lost Blackberry Smart Phone, Sniff & $40 Amazon Giveaway

Some of you may remember the story of my long lost Blackberry smart phone (if not read about it here and here) but I’ll happily give you a brief synopsis of the story.

I loved my Blackberry. It was a cool fuschia color and I loved how fast I was getting at typing on the tiny keyboard – at least it was a keyboard, unlike my iPhone’s. But I digress. While I found certain aspects of my Blackberry mysterious to use, I was getting the hang of it and just as that was happening, the thing dies on me. Too bad objects can’t love me back and appreciate my love for them – by not breaking. Alas, they don’t and they do break.

I lost all my contacts and was unable to retrieve them. Thankfully most of the important ones were in my email files or in the hard copy address book. But what I could not retrieve are my photos. :( I was very disappointed. As you know photos have a lot of sentimental value in the memories they create and preserve. Another sore spot was fact I was never able to figure out how to back up my Blackberry.

The thing is the phone guys were unable to fix my phone due to not having the battery in stock. Whether that was a ploy to get me to upgrade I have no idea, but I needed my phone so I opted to upgrade. After all, you can live without their smart phone these days? I know I’d miss mine.

  2. Kim L says:

    I personally don’t have a cell phone, but my daughter does. Oh the stories I could tell. Where should I start?

    Here’s a list of some of her reasons for her cel phone mishaps.

    Left on roof of car and drove off
    Borrowed and never returned
    Left in a taxi. Never found.
    Don’t know

    I could go on and on. Glad to know about the Asurion protection package.

  11. Jamie Brigham says:

    My phone thankfully has made it through being dropped many many times however my phone cases were not so lucky. I am currently on #4 and it’s broken too. I’ve spent over 120.00 on phone cases alone in the last year. I drop my phone normally while carrying the baby to the car, carrying the diaper bag and my purse. I am usually fumbling with everything and my phone smacks the ground. Takes my breath away, if it gets broken it’s 600.00 to replace it as I am not eligible for an upgrade yet (Eek!)

  12. Jamie Brigham says:
