I finally gave in and got an iPhone. Yes, I know I am well behind the times and everyone who’s anyone has had an iPhone for years, blah blah blah….
I have put off getting a smart phone as in all honesty I really don’t think I have much need for one. But my faithful little phone stopped working properly this week so after some deliberation I decided to upgrade.
Well the iPhone arrived and I dutifully charged it and put my SIM card in, but then what? Why wasn’t singing and dancing (that’s what they do right?), why wasn’t there a proper instruction book and why on earth wouldn’t it do anything. I was just starting to get mad when I realised it wanted me to plug it into my computer.
I got iTunes downloaded, that part was easy. But then, and this is no exaggeration, it took me about 20 attempts to figure out how to put music on the thing. In the end I had to resort to searching google for help as there was no way I would be able to figure it out myself!
I’m slowly getting used to it now but I still don’t really understand apps, or what I’m really supposed to do! I’m used to buying my MP3’s from Amazon and now I have the iTunes store and it’s all pretty complicated!
I’m sure I’ll get there but if anyone has any real gems of wisdom I’d really appreciate it!
Oh and while all this was going on yesterday I had an email from The Fairy Hobmother from Appliances Online. She flies around the blogmosphere bestowing gifts on bloggers. She gave me vouchers for Amazon so that I can buy myself a little treat. So later I will be spending some time browsing the virtual rails to uncover something to buy myself (or the children!)
