Dear John (Blackberry)—
I am writing this “Dear John” letter to you today because I am finally upgrading to an iPhone 4S. I know, I know, this is very difficult because we have shared so many good times together from traveling all around the country, sharing uplifting and poignant stories over the phone, jokes and pictures sent by email and text to even a good long cry when life was incredibly difficult.
Believe me this was not an easy decision to make. I am not one to run out and buy the newest shiniest toy at the drop of a hat, even when my friends and family showed off their newest Droids or iPhones, I was content with my reliable, tested, tried and true Blackberry. I mean for goodness sake, I drive a 10 year old car, but I have to move on to a phone that will fit my rapidly paced day to day life style.
We both knew our time together was coming to a close. I know you could see the signs because you would freeze up on me as soon as I needed to send a text or make a very important phone call. Or the times it would take me almost 5 minutes to log onto the internet to “Google” something. And just recently the world-wide outage you suffered, I knew I had made the right decision.
So long my friend…I will cherish our years together.
