Im One Of Those Ignorant Iphone Owners!

Another one of those ignorant people!

I bought an iPhone 4s on a plan and had been using it for about six months when I dropped it. Sorry, I didn't drop it; I simply tripped when I was holding it and it landed face down. In shock I stood with my heart wrenched in my throat to see the outcome. I had cracked the screen massively. Honestly I almost cried! I loved my iPhone. I had a proper cover on it before I had received a promotional cover with the purchase of alcohol. I decided to put the promo cover on thinking it was trendy. Soon to discover it did not protect my iPhone!

I am now sitting here with a cracked screen waiting to obtain a glass splinter in my thumb. I’m thinking of putting a screen protector on. I have searched where to fix it and checked costs and found the lowest. I think I am still in shock to be as stupid as I was to have changed the cover. I am now the unfortunate owner of a cracked iPhone. I feel stupid to admit it, as I have always been the one to make sure my phone had ‘Insurance’ or a quality ‘protection case’.

Watching others show me their cracked screens I was sure I would never come across this same issue because I was very fond of my iPhone and was sure I would not have this same issue EVER.

Cracking, damaging or even losing a mobile phone has been increasing along with the prices of these technology devices. I am seeing more and more youth have these problems. Glass screens? Come on. Doesn't sound right to me. Just last year New Year I watched a guy lose his iPhone on the beach! Don’t let this happen! Honestly when I watched him anxiously trying to find it before the tide came in... It was horrible. A start to the New Year he definitely won’t forget. A girl came to our house, bent over to pat our dogs and her phone simply slipped out of her pocket and straight into the dog’s water bowl!

I can admit my cracked screen was pure accident but I have witnessed many people damage or ruin their phones due to consumption of alcohol and believing their phone can fly and/or swim. Losing your phone or ‘misplacing’ it is even worse if your phone is not security safe and is fallen into the wrong hands.

My Phone is amazing don’t get me wrong, it just isn't tough unless you have a protector to cover the whole thing. I've witnessed children as young as five years old grab my Phone from the table and enter Games and Apps. I wonder how they do it when I'm still teaching my Mother how to view my contacts! Watching a child as young as five hold my phone is like watching your phone sitting right on the edge of a table. You know you should move it to a safer place!

Just a quick blog to let you all know about the consequences of youth having technology devices yet the prices keep increasing, and there is no upgrade of security, protection or awareness of accidents to happen with an expensive device as such.
