Yesterday, I did the one thing that every iPhone and iPod touch user is convinced will never happen to them… I shattered my iPhone. Yep, my iPhone finally took that fatal fall. To be honest, I have dropped my iPhone on multiple occasions so, when it took a dive yesterday, I wasn’t too concerned. I picked it up, brushed it off and almost put it in my purse without looking at it. For some reason, I took a quick glance and to my horror the lower forth of my iPhone was completely shattered!
It took a second for the full implications of what had just happened to set in. After the initial shock wore off, sadness seeped in. My beautiful, smooth iPhone was now cracked and jagged. It looked awful!
After further examination, it seemed as though it must have fallen straight down onto the bottom right corner (on cement)… not exactly that ideal place for your iPhone to land. And being that I’m a case hater, my naked iPhone did not withstand the impact well. :(
When we got home Doug took my precious iPhone, removed the SIM and traded it for one of our test iPhones. So, although I have a “new” iPhone (really it’s Doug’s old 3G), I still miss the one I had invested so much time and energy into. So sad.
I told Doug that it might just be time to upgrade to an iPhone 3GS!
Moral of the Story… invest in a case.
