A New Phone

(December 05 2009) Written by: Josh Kramer

I am horrible with cell phones. I have put 2 (or 3, I can't remember) through the washing machine, cracked one screen (after it went through the washing machine), and snapped 2 screens clean off within the past 3 or 4 years. A little more than a year ago I found a phone on the side of the road with no battery (I call it a "Tony Stark" phone). I got a charger and a battery off of eBay and it worked great until this past summer, when it started to freeze. A friend gave me her old phone, a first generation Chocolate. It worked great, but after 3 minutes of talking on a full charge the battery died, which doesn't make for a very good phone. When I was at home over break the phone died and then I misplaced it. I came back to school with no phone.

My family has just renewed our phone contract, which means discounted phones. I sprung for the new Motorola Droid. I always have kept good care of my iPod Touch, so I figure a smartphone will be the same. On campus I will have RIT's awesome wireless network to use, but off campus I will be able to use the internet anywhere! It came to my dad's house yesterday, and he shipped it here. Hopefully it arrives Tuesday. I'm really excited, and will definitely be blogging about how awesome it is.

Does anyone have one yet? Do you like it?

    Same here last year alone I went through 5 Iphones all mainly because of water damage and dropping it too many times (it easily slips out of my hands)thank goodness for the warranty and the fact they can't tell its water damage (shhhh)But i've had mine for 6 months now and been a lot more careful! Have fun with your new one, next time i run into you show me!

    I just wanted to thank you for the [b]really [/b]informative and insightful tour of campus on the forth of December. It was very helpful and showed me all of what RIT has to offer me.
    Thanks again,
    Scott
    P.S. I was your last tour of the day and it was just me and my dad so we could ask alot of questions.
