Upgrading To The Iphone 5

I’m currently on my way to see Ushi’s puppywalkers, but more on that in a separate post.

I decided on Monday to go in and see what i would need to upgrade to n iphone. I was told that i would only need my bank card, so decided i’d go ahead and get the phone that same day. My c6 was okay but to be honest it started to take a while to open texts and sort of stuttered when it would start talking. I also thought it might be worth getting the iphone since all my ipad stuff would sink so thought it would be good if i couldn’t take my ipad or i needed to answer an email quickly. Part of me too was also wondering was i just getting it to get the latest phone but i knew it would benifit me.

Witin about 15 minutes all the paper work was squared away. It’ll be £47 now instead of the 10 pounds i was paying. But as well as the unlimmited minutes and texts, i have 8 gig of internet too if i ever did need it. I went away while they put ios 7 on it. I was amazed at just how quick it was and i thought it was cool how you could just back up from the cloud even though i didn’t have my ipad with me.

So after about an hour i headed back to get the phone itself. They turned on voice over and everything and we just stood and talked for quite a while since there were no other custumers. I couldn’t get over the size of the little box it came in. I’ve noticed with my nokia phones they have big boxes and a lot of packing to make you think you’re getting more in the box. The iphone is a simple little box no bigger than the phone. The iphone sits in a beautiful little craddle. When you lift that off you have a charger and a nice little square box that contains your earphones and that is all you get. I must say it was very well presented and that’s all you need really. No fancy boxes with so much packaging. I thought it really makes a difference how a phone comes.

When i got home i ordered me a boxwave buddy case with a keyboard. It’s basically a case for the phone with a slide out qwerty keyboard. The keyboard is blue tooth. It’s a slightly different layout than a normal qwerty but i’m getting used to it. The only thing i’ve noticed about the keyboard is if you’re in a low signal area it stops working especially on a train journey if it has bad signal. It is a bit sluggish to start with but once you get used to it it’s grand. I’m glad i have it now. I’ll probably just text and that but if i do need to answer an email i can or if i just fancy writing i can. I think it helped because i have the ipad too. We had a bit of trouble sinking it all but it’s all grand now. I just hope i don’t get bored of it and don’t give it up.
