This time last year I pre-ordered an iPhone 6 and I was so excited about it. I’d been living with a broken screen on my iPhone 5 after dropping it a few months earlier and I was pretty fed up with pieces of glass falling off all over the place. Instead of paying to fix it I just waited for the new model to be released and replaced it instead. (I’m not sure if this was smart or sad. Maybe a little of both.) And then, of course, just a few months after getting my pristine iPhone 6, I dropped it and cracked the glass. Aargh. I was so annoyed with myself. As a preventive measure I usually keep my phone in a case, but I have to take the case off when I go running so that the phone will fit in my pocket. Of course I was taking the phone out of my pocket at the end of a run when I dropped it on the sidewalk and broke it. And since the phone still worked fine I’d just been using it as-is since then. I figured I’d just wait for the iPhone 6S announcement and pre-order the new model. Easy, right? Well, the announcement happened last Wednesday. But when I logged in and discovered how much is was going to cost me to get an iPhone 6S I couldn’t believe the price. It was way too high for me to even consider. So I decided to finally make an appointment at the Apple Store to get my current phone fixed. I can’t believe I put it off for so long! It only cost me a little over $100 and an hour of my time, and now it’s like I have a brand new phone. Now to find a new case that it is slim enough that I don’t have to remove it when I go running. I found a couple of very low profile cases that I’d like to try. Hopefully one of those does the trick. I know this is a first world problem of the highest order, but I use my phone for everything so I’m much happier having one that’s back in one piece!
