So my phone died. You can read all about how it gave its life to support me running to get fitter. check the gory details of its noble end / beginning of life as a paper weight here. #runninginglasses – week 4 run 2 – death of a phone.
So tomorrow i have to go to the fruit shop and try and get a new one. The genius bar have a policy of exchanging iPhones which cannot be repaired, sometimes at their digression for free, other times for around 80-100 poinds.
(although I did hear somewhere that the power to do this had been taken from the genii). The routine is pretty simple, tell the person what happened and ask if there is a way the genius can solve the sleek, black paperweight problem for me.
On a wider note, I am pleased to see how i have handled not having a phone. I have been quite happy not to have it. I have been ok without another smart device in my life. I am aware i don’t phone many people or text people, but i am pretty sure people can reach me wherever I am if it is urgent. I know that it is the weekend and the difference between being with my family and travelling together, and tomorrow when we all go our separate ways and I am on the train, being out all day. Tomorrow might be a very different thing. I am carrying a phone, but not the main number for emergencies.
Not sure yet, but it is a nice choice to have to make!
