Guess what? I got my iphone yesterday afternoon! Hear that Daddy? You’re not the only one in the family now. Actually, I got one for my daughter too.
Okay, now I have to figure out how to use the thing. After years of cell phones and blackberries I’m at a bit of a loss, to say the least.
My fingers seem to have grown fat overnight. Every time I try to type an “a” an “s” appears. Each time I hit “m” it’s mysteriously an “n”. “X” seems to be my favorite key, and I don’t mean the letter “x”, but the Delete key.
And how do you use an “app”? I downloaded one, but now I don’t know what to do with it. I’m not even sure what an “app” is. Is it supposed to be in quotation marks or is it a word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary already? Do you know that “lol” is there? Scary, right?
I have an ugly pink case because I will drop it every day and this one is supposedly shatter-free. Also, I will lose it if it doesn’t stand out. Black fades into everything, and I don’t even want to tell you how many black phones I have put down and then forgotten. Bright pink is hard to miss.
I love my iphone already, but I have a lot of work to do before I have mastered it. I did put my music on it, and a really pretty wallpaper of an orange tulip (hopes of Spring peer out at me every time I pick it up). Maybe my 79-year old father can give me lessons. All I would have to do is fly to Vegas for that. The Verizon store said they give free 30 minute tutorials, but I’m not really the tutorial type, especially in a Verizon store.
Let me know if you have any really cool “apps” or tips for me. I’m an iphone neophyte.
