iPhone Dreaming - and Dancing Monkeys!

The Hunny is looking into a new phone. His Crackberry is falling apart after three and a half years (they just don't make electronics the way they used to *sigh*) and he's desparate to talk me into an iPhone. Silly man, trying to talk me into changing carriers AND a new, expensive phone. He makes a pretty darn good argument, but I'm fighting it.

So while he's pining away for the new phone, I'm searching the internets for deals, for reasons why I should let him get the new toy. Besides the obvious, I mean. It's totally COOL. That, and he wants me to get one as well.

I come across this site in the UK, a site selling accessories, and I think, "Maybe having an iPhone WOULD be fun." Now if I only knew how to convert dollars to pounds ...

But look! Look! The iPhone accessories are so much fun! Check out the dog phone holder! Can you see Fred and Bessie hanging out with him? I didn't know such things existed! And LOOK AT THE MONKEY!!! Mr. Monkeysuit would be so JEALOUS! Why didn't someone tell me these things were out there?!? He spins and flashes when the phone is set to stun! I WANT ONE!!!



And who thought that an iPhone charger could be so cool? You people have been holding out on me! I WANT ONE OF THESE, TOO!!! Initially I thought it looked very Star Trek, but did you check out the way the little panels fan out? It totally rocks!


Because Oatmeal Head owns an iTouch (what a stupid idea that was - I told you those things can text, right? That's what we needed, a 15 year old boy with a girlfriend and texting capability), I clicked on the ipod touch accessories button, just for giggles. Not nearly so much fun. No spinning monkeys for my boy. Which he probably appreciates. He's a little embarrassed by his mother's critter escapades. But I was really hoping ...

So I have no idea how I'll order from this company across the pond. Guess I'll find someplace else that offers this cool stuff. Or maybe figure out how to order and see what the prices actually come to in Monopoly money. Wait! That means that I'd be saying yes to the Hunny's iPhone ... I'll keep you posted, 'k? Especially if I get my own iPhone. You KNOW I'll be showing that bad boy off. Along with the flashing, dancing monkey. Heh.

Until I write again ...

iPhone is the only way to go. Trust.

We're trying to decide between the Samsung Eternity or the Impression. Hmm.

I have heard that to get the iPhone, you MUST get the data plan that goes with it. Dunno. But for good deals, we've had good luck with www.letstalk.com

FIRST .. the UK version of things wont work properly here. That said I need to also point out the charger is charging NOT an iPhone but a CRACKBERRY ... so cool your jets and head over to Apple.com and look at the real iPhone accessories ... which are VERY cool

asthmagirl said...

Yup, those british accessories probably won't work here! I haven't tried the iphone as I wrangle crackberries at work. I have the new touch screen crackberry which is not all I hoped it would be. I long for my old crackberry! (don't tell anyone I said that)!

YOu are being drawn to the iPhone - oh my! Personally, I haven't even got a real cell phone. I have a pre-paid one that I use if/when I need to call Hubby. Of course, as my friends point out often, I don't have kiddos I need to keep in touch with!

ahh.. the allure of the lovely iphone... After being with our current carrier for a year, they will let me update my phone to whatever I want for free. Including the iphone. But I haven't decided if I actually want one anymore. I kind of like my pink sony walkman phone.
Of course I could make a really cool skin for my new iphone, to match the new blog design I am working on...

Have fun deciding!

I think I want a crackberry. Really. And I know I'll become addicted quickly.

You think YOU'RE behind? I have a hand me down from David. I'd just like one big enough to see without my glasses when texting....or dialing!

The Sports Mama said...

Wait.... did you say that silly phone has a STUN setting????

I need one of those. It would be so helpful against all those silly little teenage girls who hurtle themselves at my boy.

Jan Parrish said...

Yes, every couple of years we have to get new phones. Then it takes almost that long to learn how to use them and then we get new phones...

I want one. I want one. I want one. My 'phone' actually makes phonecalls and thats it. I don't own a laptop. I have no internet access except when sitting here in the corner of my upstairs office.

I can't even imagine how many blogs I would read if I had internet access regularly. As it is, I think people just assume I'm a jerk. Well, if you are going to think I'm a jerk, at least think so for the right reasons, right?

My youngest daughter just bought an I Phone. She loves, loves, loves it. I have to admit I had fun playing around with it too....just that I don't want to shell out the money for a more expensive phone and plan right now....or maybe ever. What a stodge I am.

Yep. Say good-bye to our teens. They always come back when they need something.
