I Am Lost Without You..

texting Pictures, Images and Photos

Everyone, I'm totally lost without him. Actually, I am talking about my cell phone, not my husband.

Well, my beloved Blackberry broke down on me last night after I tried to download the new software. It totally went and I can't make or receive calls or it won't even let me turn on/off it. It's dead...

After being on the phone for three hours with three technicians trying to revive him, I was told that my Blackberry was useless. Now, since I purchased the phone less than a year ago, it was under warrenty and they are sending me a replacement for free. The catch is, it takes 5 business days with standard shipping for free or 1 - 2 business days shipping for $12. Of course, I told them that I would pay $12, so get him to me fast!! My new phone will arrive on coming Monday which means I have to live without a cell for the next four nights. I am devastated!!

I ususally use my cell to send text messages or browse online while at work - especially when I'm bored and nothing to do. I am not allowed to surf the web at work, so it comes really handy, if you know what I mean. And I love texting my friends or my husband, just saying something silly or kill time. Great thing about those smart phones nowadays is that you have an instant access to email or web. They tell you when you have new email or text - say hello to "beep, you got mail!" Therefore, not getting those instant fix is sooo painful to me.

Today was my "day 1" without my cells phone. Oh my god, do you know how hard it has been? It is indeed torture!! I was showing the first sign of withdrawls - I was shaking because I couldn't text or just browsing through it. I honestly don't know what I am going to do without it until Monday.

Now I am back to the old methods for communication - email and home phone. It's killing me. Seriously. If you think about it, we used to have a pager and called the person back or check the answering machine for messages or wait until you go home and check your emails. Do you remember those days? We did have patience back then, don't you agree? So I guess, this could be a good thing for me.. Maybe I can relearn how to be patient and enjoy the silence... Not! LOL

So, everyone, do you love your cell phone? What would you do if your phone gets lost or being damaged and have to live without it for a few days? Would you go insane or what? Hold your phone tightly everyone because you don't want to lose or break it!

Aw, hurry to me, my dear Blackberry!!!

Oh, you poor thing. After getting my CrackBerry in September, I have never been without it. I love it. I love having access to everything. It makes me happy! Sorry you have to wait until Monday. Maybe you can just blog a lot all weekend!

isn't it weird that we can't live without our tech gadgets anymore? imagine growing up when you can go anywhere without a cellphone and it didn't even bother you? now, I agree that you can't live without it. I was late for work today because I had to go back home to get my phone! =)

All I have is a Virgin Mobile. Nothing fance, no net no nothing but the convenience of being able to call someone if I need to. If it broke or got lost, I doubt I'd miss it much. Just buy a new one ($20 + a card for airtime) and transfer the account to the new phone. Half the time I forget I have it...

I have had three "situations" with the cell phones....I have two children under 3. Yup. Destroyed due to child involvements....it was torture....

you should strangle the tech, they have free phones to "borrow" until yours comes in. just ask. =)

Thanks for stopping by my visit at My Rambling Thoughts!

My cell phone is my home phone so if it breaks, I go into MAJOR panic mode.

I would be lost without my phone, too. It's so sad, but so true. I feel naked without it!

Oh yeah I can't go without my Blackberry (work-issued) or cell phone. I would crumble without it.

Everyone: Well, actually I got my phone on Friday evening. My JuJu was waiting for me in front of the door holding a box - You have no idea, how happy I was. I jumped and jumped like a little kid - God knew that I wouldn't be able to survive over the weekend. Seriously, I would have killed myself. So, yes, I'm glad that all of you can't live without it, except FRANCO. You're the champ. I wish I had your mentality, man. Love you all!!!
