Blackberry Curve is out of commission
The scroll wheel broke off of my Blackberry Curve 8300. in addition, the phone cuts off in the middle of calls. The phone is a disaster.
Last week, the scroll wheel stop rolling down. I then switched it to scroll downward. After trying to make a call, the wheel assembly just fell apart. Think of trying to use a computer without a functional mouse.
If you know all the commands, you may be able to escape a mouse problem, but a Blackberry without a scroll wheel is like not having a phone at all.
I want to get the IPhone, but its' going to cost me $370 for the 32gb one. I only have $300 in 3g cards. Apparently, Apple has to charge $70 tax for the $299 IPhone because of California's subsidized policy on reduced priced phones. There is always a catch to everything. We have to pay invisible taxes on tings we don't see.
I guess I will be without a phone until I can find another $70 to make the purchase. I want to get the 32gb iPhone because I learned from having an Apple laptop that having more storage space maintains optimum performance.
The cost of living out here in Southern California is bankrupting me. I pay my bills on time, but it's getting harder, almost impossible to survive. I don't even know what I will do next month to survive.
My writing goal must happen soon, or I'm going to be toast like my Blackberry Curve. Just thought I should share the Blackberry disaster.
