Recently I got an iPhone and I LOVE it. Prior to that, I had a stupidphone and I was very resistant to getting a smartphone, maybe because I didn't want a phone that was smarter than me. Also, I didn't want a phone where I'd be really upset if I dropped it in the toilet (like my husband did a week after he got his $300 phone).
But it had to happen. I think the final straw was when our 16 year old babysitter sent me an email "From my iPhone" and I just felt like a big fat loser.
Things that I love about my phone:
1) Has epocrates and other medical stuff on it, so I can be competent at work
2) I can check email on my phone!
3) Calendar with alarms helps keep me from feeling like I'm juggling ten million things in my head
4) Can make lists of what I need before I go shopping. So I don't go to Meijer to buy Valentine's Day cards for my daughter's class, then buy a few things, and realize when I get home, I forgot to buy the damn cards. Not that this happened to me. Twice.
My main worry was that I'd spend all my time playing games, so I kept from downloading any games. That's just what I need, right? I had to ask my husband to delete games from my palm pilot back in the day. Damn addictive Drug Wars.
