Ug, I broke my phone again. That's twice in the last month. I had my beloved Palm Centro for almost two years (with one replacement in between). I loved that phone. I let Luke hold it in the car one time when he was getting fussy and he sucked on it. Little did I know that a bunch of drool went into the charging port and killed the phone. Too much water. I was not eligible for a new phone. The very nice sprint guys told me that it would be the best deal if I could just buy a used phone on craigs list until I was eligible for a new phone. I did that. I found a Palm Pre for 200 and bought it. While that seems like a lot of money, I didn't want to pay full price for a phone at the Sprint Store. Brand new phones usually run anywhere between 400-600 dollars.
Yesterday, I was nursing Luke in the backseat of the car before we left the store. I tossed my phone up into the cup holder before I crawled to the drivers seat. I started crawling up and saw where my phone had landed. In my coffee cup, half full of coffee. DOH! I took the battery out immediately and tried to recover it. I let it dry but the touch screen is broken. What now? Well, since I used to work at sprint I have a two spare phones. One that has no charger (which is dead so unusable until I find the charger) and one that has a faulty screen every once and a while. I had no choice but to go with the faulty screen. It's a pretty little red LG phone that I used before my Palm Centro. I forgot how much I loved the phone. I mean, it's no where near as awesome as the Palm Pre, but it's such a great little phone. I'm so thankful that I have an extra phone. I don't know what I'll do now but I'm so glad I don't have to make an impulse buy today or try to track another phone down on craigslist. Even though I didn't really like my job, I'm thankful that I had extra phones lying around.
Ben is so great to me. He really is insistent on me buying another Palm Pre. He keeps saying that he wants me to have a nice phone. I use my phone a lot, especially to browse the internet while I'm nursing Luke. He's not even mad at all that I ruined my phone, what a great husband. I don't know that I can just buy a new expensive phone just yet. I'll try and see what my options are. But for now it's my little red LG and my wonderful husband.
