I Am Loving It--My New Apple iPhone 4G

By
Real Estate Agent with Balboa Real Estate San Diego, CA

 

 

I did it---I purchased the new Apple iPhone 4G. I was actually forced into it---not being able to access my e-mail immediately, texting became too difficult with my old phone,  and needing a GPS and other Apps. I actually felt like a dinosaur with my old flip phone.  You can't beat an iPhone for travel either. With weight and baggage restrictions on airlines, I don't miss the bulky laptop. (remember when we thought laptops were so small and convenient, compared to our desk top computers.)?

Taking video is so easy!  Although I don't know much of the difference from the older iPhone models, I like all the bells and whistles built into one device.It's sleek, thin and I give it a  BIG "thumbs up".

Apple offers FREE classes at their Mission Valley store in San Diego, CA.

Hi Deborah - Although I don't have this phone, I made the switch to a smart phone a couple of months ago, and I have to say that it's been pretty amazing. Best of luck with your new phone!

I’m not rich enough to have phones like that. Besides, my flip phone still makes and receives phone calls, which is all I want a phone to do. I don't want a phone that's smarter than me, and when I'm away from the computer, there's a reason! The last thing I want is a smart phone interrupting me when I'm out and about taking photographs at the Zoo. The only thing my flip phone doesn’t do that I wish it did is to communicate with the Enterprise so that I can have Scotty beam me up. JJJJ

Judy-

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Smartphones are amazing!


Wallace-

Yes I heard the Droid 4g is awesome as well. Good luck with it!

Russel-

You sound just like me 6 months ago--and YES this phone is smarter than I am!!! It is surprisingly inexpensive though considering what it does. And YES the 4G DOES communicate with the Enterpise so Scotty can beam you up!

Deborah, welcome to the Mac side :-)  I'm proud of you for taking the leap.  One of the sales reps once said, once you have a taste of the apple juice you won't want anything else.  I bought my iPhone 4 not too long ago also - actually was contemplating waiting for the iPhone 5 but when my Blackberry was continuing to have "issues" I went ahead with the 4.  I've already been using a MacBook Air for a few years now and love it so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with the phone.  I'm sure you're going to love all of the wonderful apps on there - everything from grocery lists to real estate forms to.... Congrats!

Apple juice--never heard that but I like it. I think you are right, because I am already planning to get a Mac Book for my next laptop purchase. First time I have used Apps and I downloaded Netflix and started to watch a movie while I was waiting for someone in a coffee shop this week!

I like reading about what other people use & recommend.  I have a BB.  I can read email but if I was gone for a long period of time it would not substitute for my computer...I don't like web browsing on something that small.

Kathy-

Thanks for stopping by my Blog. I am really pleased with the Apple products I have seen----a real functionality that is entirely user-friendly. It's hard to state the exact things I like-- but they proactively know their market and what the lay user needs and wants.

 

Christine-

I can't web browse for more than a few minutes on my iPhone---it is handy to be able to in a pinch, but it will never replace the ole laptop.
