When my daughter was 6 months old I bought myself my first smart phone and I’ve had the same smart phone ever since. The same one! When I bought it, it was a precious fragile gem. I dressed it in the most expensive unbreakable case and did all the things I was told to do to extend its battery life. Now I carry it around without a case, I don’t think of the battery at all and I put up with the other silly things it does – silly, 4S. There are things I’d like it to do that I see other iPhone uses do. I’m excited for the time in my life when I can do slow motion videos too.
There have been two times in the last 6 years when I suspected my phone was a goner. One time I lost it in the snow while sledding and it didn’t turn on for almost a week. Most recently, I found my 4S in my pocket with a dime wedged in the battery slot and it didn’t turn on for 24 hours – I pronounced it dead and then it came back!
This morning I read that Apple has updated the software on old phones to slow them down. I’ve been experiencing this exact thing! But, Apple, until my phone dies, this phone will be my phone no matter how slow you make it. Mwhhaaaa ha ha ha. My phone & I have been through so much together. Slow motion videos and a lot of new emoticons that I don’t understand are going to have to wait.
