I’m so excited to finally have gotten my IPhone.

I’ve been using this wonderful device for a month now, and a little while ago I picked it up and it was bone dead. Nothing. I tried pressing buttons, only two buttons, removing it from its OttoBox (which wasn’t easy), attempting to open it to remove the battery, and I got nowhere.

So I went to my computer to send my daughter an email request, and even a FaceBook notice to check her email, for her to call her dad to let him know I was phone-less. She did, but since my husband is notorious for not answering his phone, checking for missed calls, or listening to voice mail, that was a waste of time.

Then, for some reason, my computer also went haywire. I shut it down to reboot it as well, and when Hotmail asked me to sign in again, I couldn’t because I had changed my password. I couldn’t get it right, and couldn’t access it because, (can you guess?) it was recorded for posterity on my phone.

Sigh.

So I made myself busy as I waited for my husband to get home. When he did, I immediately called AT&T and of course they were very helpful. I learned that this phone does not open for battery check and reboot; instead, you reboot by pressing and holding down both of those two above-mentioned buttons at the same time.

A few seconds later, voila, my little Apple icon popped back up! So relieved to be back in touch with civilization. Amazing, isn’t it, how technologically dependent we have become?

And for those folks who refuse to adapt to texting and other such creature comforts, as are some of our friends who cannot understand the value of texting, and who complain when they see people talking on the phone in their cars, I just have to say this: Why did we ever move forward from Morse Code, huh? And, how on earth is talking on a cell phone in a car any different from talking to one another in a car full of people, or eating while driving, or changing the radio station? Seriously!

Now texting while driving, that’s just plain stupid. And by the way, I have now discovered that it is the IPhone 5 that has Talk-to-Text compatibility. Guess I’ll have to relegate this IPhone 4 to my husband (who is still using his flip phone!) and get myself a 5. Shoot, I might even get said husband to learn to text ... not!
