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.
