Have you ever purchased anything that could endure all types of abuse? I thought I had. When I got my cell phone 18 months ago I was looking for several features. I was looking for an excellent camera and large display screen with large keypad. A large cell phone that couldn’t be easily lost.
Well, size really doesn’t matter when it comes to losing it. I won’t even begin to mention how many times I’ve lost it! Yes, “I’ve lost it”, my cell phone and my mind (I think…but maybe I don’t think!?)!
I found an HTC-Inspire that met all the criteria I needed, but then I was told the glass was “bulletproof”. I said: “Sold”! When you drop things as much as I do you know that if it’s bulletproof glass it will be exactly what I needed.
At the end of June I dropped my phone again! That must have been the umpteenth or thousand times I’ve dropped it. This time I picked it up and was shocked. Why would I be shocked? I’ve dropped it several times a day for 18 months.
The glass was broken! It wasn’t a convenient time to learn a new telephone or even trying to learn a new phone. No time will ever be convenient. It’s always hard to learn something new. Too many other things were happening at this time also.
So, broken glass and all I thought I’d just use the phone till I could not any longer. Then the glass started to get worse and spread. My brother was visiting and he went to the AT&T store to help me look for another cell phone. He called on the warranty. I did purchase a warranty, but I would need to pay $99.00 to replace it even with the extended warranty. So I opted for another phone.
As frustrated as I was I realized…they said it was bulletproof not brain injury proof! Well, I guess they both began with a “B”, and I must have misunderstood! I guess bulletproof and dropping are two different things.
I guess it can withstand bullets but not brain injury issues! I dropped one too many times!
