I want an iPhone NOW

This past Friday, the unthinkable happened. I lost my iPhone. I was only in one single not-so-big store on the Northside when my tragedy happened. The security guard and I searched and searched and retraced my steps and nothing. I left my info and called at night, called the next morning, and one more time – again, nothing.

The day before I lost my iPhone, I found someone’s ATM card on the street. I was going to scan it & hopefully find the owner and/or relieve her stress knowing that I was not going to use it at a local fast food place or gas station that doesn’t check zip codes. I am just not that kind of person but unfortunately I forgot it in my office and haven’t scanned it, so I have just become “that kind of person.”

So, is it Karma? Hmmm…

Nah, Karma Schmarma – I am just forgetful/busy and maybe my iPhone slipped between some towels or floor cracks or something. The good thing is that I had put in a passcode (yay me!), it was already old, scratched up and had a broken screen so it was time to give it up anyway. So I suspended my account and had been waiting patiently for Apple’s announcement today of a new iPhone 4. Well, it’s announced but not available until June 24th! Waaaaa… but it is sooner than I thought it would be available.

So why this post? 1) Found ATM will be scanned and posted as soon as I get back to the office (number not included, of course) and 2) Don’t call me, I will call you… if I can find a public phone.

Email works too – especially if you want to lend me a phone while I wait. We humans have so many ways we can communicate, a phone is not the only way and I can just drop the ATM card off at the local bank. So simple πŸ™‚

    My husband took me to make a payment and hadn’t realized that when I got out of the truck, I dropped my iPhone, which had been under my leg. We went back one hour later and found it!!!!!! Wow.. that was like….wow.

    Que Fregados
    lucky you! from that experience, you should really consider putting in a passcode – so that if someone finds it, they won’t get your info right away.

    Jessica Carrillo
    I do have one on it. The only thing that would’ve broken my heart were the pics I have stored of my kids. That is why I was hoping and praying that I didn’t lose it. And thank goodness I didn’t cuz those pics are priceless…

    Losing my iPhone taught me,if anything, to sync my phone as often as possible.

      To each their own. I already have an ATT account, am due for an upgrade and lost my iphone3G so… only natural I get an iPhone4. Besides, only iPhone has the app that lets me post from my phone – no other phone does.
