My Phone Upgrade!!

I had my old Blackberry Curve (don't even remember the model number) since April of 2008 with a 2 year contract from T-mobile. This phone has been dropped a million times, and has been lost & found a couple of times. There was even a time when I parked my car in the parking lot at my house and got out, and my phone unknowingly fell out of my purse. It was snowing outside too! I went inside and took a nap. When I woke up an hour or two later, something felt missing. I realized it was my phone, and went outside to go see if I left it in my car. Once I got outside, there it was right there laying in a blanket of snow right by my car's tire. This phone has been through many rough times...and it shows! There's a crack on the side of the screen, the ball thingy in the middle is dirty, and even half of the Blackberry word has completely been wiped off. People would look at me funny whenever I pulled it out to make a call or something lol..

My 2 year contract ended in April 2010. But for some reason, I was too lazy (and cheap) to get a new phone, so I kept my old one with intentions of saving up for a better phone and having it by Christmas. Well, that all came to an end this past Monday! I went to go use the bathroom at my house, and as I walked in, my phone literally slipped through my fingers and landed in the toilet bowl. Omg! I couldn't believe that happened. The toilet water was clean, so I pulled it out as quick as I could and it started flickering....than died on me. In a way, this was good because I know I needed a new phone..quick! So I called T-mobile and upgraded to a newer version. I got the Blackberry Curve 8520 and it's so cute! I love it so far. The shape and size of my new phone is more feminine than my old phone. My old phone was big and squared, and seemed like it was more masculine. I even bought a cute purple case for it...I cant stand seeing finger prints on a brand new phone.
