I finally got to upgrade my phone. My contract was expiring and well, isn't that always the perfect excuse?! There was no way I was going to pay full price or the contract price of one of these bad boys, so I was so happy to see that Telus has a refurbished section of phones on their website. It's worth seeing if your provider does the same! That saved me almost $300, if I were to have gone with contract price.
I also kept my grandfathered plan, but had to add a few extras to get my plan to the minimum amount to own any of the premium phones. I really hate the new way of doing things. Any way they can get us to spend more money on our phones and plans, right? Ugh. Regardless, no way was I giving up my existing plan. I'd have to pay about $20 more a month to get the amount of data I get, when I only get 500MB as it is (which has always been enough for me). No, thank you!
The first chance I got this weekend, I marched myself right into Best Buy to get a screen protector and new case. This Kate Spade one won me over. Everything Kate Spade wins me over, if I'm being honest. I had my choices narrowed to three, but this was my first choice. Miss Kerri agreed and I always ALWAYS value her opinion. My phone feels safe and secure now and I am a happy camper!
I think the hardest growing pain was saying goodbye to my collection of cases. Umm, kinda obsessed. But I get to start over and start a new collection! My old phone hasn't gone to waste. As you can see, it has my hockey case on it. It now belongs to my husband! He is anti-cell, so it's more like a MP3, gaming, and camera device now. Yep, basically an iPod Touch. His old one has a crap battery, so good timing. He's happy to be able to play Bejeweled again on the way to work to pass the 1.5 hours by. A Bejeweled pro, that guy.
So happy to have made the switch. Pretty sure the phone hasn't left my hands for more than five minutes since I got it. 64GB is a magical place where I can finally store some music on my phone and have those 55 photo-editing apps for Instagram. Such bliss!
