New phone!

Yesterday I complained about my cell phone. Today Tom and I went to Verizon and bought two Blackberries - one silver and black and the other silver and pink. Guess who got the pink one. I'm actually not a pink type of girl, but the last few weeks Tom has taken my phone instead of his several times. So my choice was A. Exactly the same as Tom's or B. Pink I chose Pink.

I've got it charging right now. I've got the Tips, hints and shortcuts booklet in my lap. I wasn't going to get a Blackberry, I was just going to get a regular phone but when my husband decided on the Blackberry I knew that I was going to have to explain to him how to use it and he was going to call me and say - "I can't figure out how to..." and he'd want me to tell him. If I didn't have the same phone, I wouldn't know what to tell him.

This happens with our cameras. When he wanted a camera, I made him to go to eBay and buy the older model just like I had, so I could explain to him how to use it even if I wasn't standing next to him. He has called several times to ask how to use the camera. I'm so glad I got the same one for both of us.

This phone has internet. That is just too cool. I've already checked my email with it. While on my laptop, I checked my email on my phone - such a dorky thing to do.

The low down is this. We started our service today with Verizon with two temporary phone numbers and on the 9th or 10th of this month our regular cell numbers will be automatically ported into our phones and the temporary phone numbers will be placed into the system for someone else. We can use the Blackberries now and figure them out for a few days, which will be nice. I'm excited.

I'm going to stop writing now and start looking through my instruction manual. Maybe I'll check my email again.

Have a great week!
