Another One Bites the Dust

May 20, 2012

When it comes to cell phone, my luck over the past couple of years has stunk.  My Palm Pixi lasted for about a year before the exterior fell apart and several buttons stopped working.  It was followed by a second-hand Palm Pre that last for about seven.  It met its demise when Mason dropped it and busted the power button.

In November I bought a Samsung Conquer from a guy off Craigslist.  I was still under contract and did not want to pay through the nose for a iPhone.  It operated on Android and it did everything I wanted.  I was able to use Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and check my e-mails.  The only down side was the camera, which took less than stellar shots.

Last night when I plugged it into charge it started acted oddly.  The battery light did not come on, and it started cycling through screens.  I brought it into the Sprint store and was told the charging port had corroded.  My options were to buy an upgraded phone, or get a replacement Samsung Conquer through my insurance.  I like not being tied to Sprint for another two years, and opted for the latter option.  My “new” phone should be here by Tuesday, and when it arrives, I hope my string of bad luck ends.

    My husband is on Sprint and will be switching soon because their service has gone downhill. Come to Verizon; come to the cool kids’ team!
