***Update: Stupid cell phone will not hold a charge. Rebecca in Chicago if you're reading this: keep your trap shut!!!!***
I got a new cell phone today. Those of you who know me, know that I've had issues with every single cell phone ever purchased. Half of them end up thrown across a room and the other half, I end up keeping until wires have sprung out the sides and smoke signals appear while texting.
My last cell phone was this cute little white Samsung tic tac looking thing. I can't find any pics because they don't make them anymore but what I loved about this phone was that it fit into every single pocket of clothing I own. The downside? It sucked as a phone. There was always a delay while speaking and sometimes I'd hear an echo which was extremely annoying so I basically stopped using it as a phone. Last month I only used 44 of my 1500 anytime minutes and unfortunately T-mobile doesn't offer roll overs. If they did I would probably have a total of 443,672,988 minutes to spare over the last few years.
I'm not very practical when it comes to picking out cell phones. There are only 3 requirements that must be met:
1) Must fit in my jeans pocket.
2) Must have a keypad, no touch screens.
3) Must come in a cute color.
So today, while shopping at Costco for a rice cooker, I found my new phone:
It's the Samsung Gravity which came out in November and while it's double the size of my old phone, it can still fit snuggly into my pocket PLUS it has a full size keyboard which is perfect for texting. I text a lot more than I talk. Bonus.
So if you're on the market for a new phone and are curious about this one check out this guy's video demonstration on the Gravity. But I'm warning you now, try not to fall in love with the guy. He seems like quite the lady's man.
I like how he sounds all robot like (at :36) when he says really fast, "It feels-really nice--to text on." And I think he color coordinated his sweater to match the aqua accents in the phone. I'm telling you...this guy is a rock star!!!
Ok I'm going to finish watching the video demo (if I can handle the hotness!!) and learn about my new phone.
