Phone Misery

Every time you drop your phone a sigh of relieve comes out when nothing is broken, cracked and no pieces are missing. You are relieved your baby is ok and that you’re ok. Well at least that’s how i feel every time i drop my beloved iPhone.

But you can only drop your phone so times before the damage is actually visible. And when i dropped my phone a couple of Saturdays ago, my baby showed me how hurt she really was. So many little cracks on her bottom right side, with one really big one going to her top right side. It was such a horrible sight i couldn’t bare to take a picture of her, i just sat there and tried to hold in my tears (i was at a friends house, little kids were around and i didn’t want them to see my pain). What was i to do now?

Luckily when i bought my snookums (loving all the nicknames for my phone) i also took out a special insurance just in case. That ‘just in’ case was now. I called the company and within 4 hours they came to pick up the phone and gave me replacement phone, equal to my iPhone. Well that’s what they state in their policy, but when they came to get my sweetheart, what i got was a Nokia from the stone age! I was so upset/ angry/ po-ed i wanted to smash something. But just in time realising that if i did break something it wouldn’t help the phone situation and i would destroy something i’d probably had to replays. After a cry i decided to call the company again the next day and try to sort things out.

The next day i called, twice even! The first time the dude on the other end of the line said he couldn’t help me; it was not possible to get another phone and he couldn’t send another driver to my house too, those where the policies. Man what to do… I definitely don’t want to be stuck with the Nokia for the coming + 4weeks (they can’t tell you how long the repair will take). Thinking about it and ready (very bad reviews!) about the company on the internet, i had no faith and only wanted to get my own phone back. It still worked so i would just have to live with the cracked screen. So i called again and told them i wanted munchkin back, i wasn’t satisfied with the replacement phone, couldn’t do what i needed to be doing on that thing. Maybe i exaggerated a bit, but it did partly give satisfying result. In 2 days they would send a driver with smart phone that i could use during the time my iPhone was being repaired. And they kept their word. I got a Samsung Galaxy Mini. A very nice smart phone that has proven to be a decent replacement.

So far so good, but i do miss my apps (especially Instagram!), my music and just my lovely! Hopefully she’s gonna be as good as new and we can be reunited very soon.
