It's Just A Phone

21 October 2009 00:50

I got a few distressed reactions over the last entry on my cracked iPhone. It's quite amazing how much cardiac arrest you can induce onto other people just by showing it in the flesh. So much so that I started doing that for grins and giggles. No one died though. (Damn!)

Which brings me to this point: Folks, it's just a phone! Albeit an expensive phone but still, IT'S JUST A PHONE! I'm not saying this out of denial just to comfort myself because when you think about it, one day twenty years from now, I'll probably have kids who will wreck things that are far bigger and more expensive. So in the larger scheme of things, getting my iPhone cracked ain't that bad.

And just so you know, I got the front panel fixed already over the weekend. I want to give props and shoutout to the CSL guys at The Mines who got it fixed at a fraction of the price and time that Maxis quoted (1/3 of the price and in a day and a half to be exact). Sure, my iPhone is void of its original warranty, but at least I didn't have to wait that long to get my phone back.

Too bad, Maxis. But you seem to be just another phone company who couldn't care less about your own customers.

The Cracked iPhone

17 October 2009 03:05

You might want to sit down for this. In fact, if you can't stomach the sight of a damaged piece of expensive electronics, you might want to skip this entry altogether.

My bad week last week culminated in my iPhone getting cracked. When I say crack, I don't mean it in the jailbreak sense. Take a look for yourself. You have been warned.

Please don't ask me how it happened. I just wished they'd make these things less fragile than a freshly circumcised penis in the first place. The fact that Maxis wants to charge a repair fee of RM1,050 with a MINIMUM waiting time of a month and a half just rubs it further. The stuff still works fine though. But instead of having your fingers glide over the glass surface like a baby's bottom, it now feels like you're navigating around granny's wrinkled ass that might just make a lot of mess if you apply too much pressure.

I think I know what a heart attack feels like now.
