This & That Including What Ails

Broken – One Word Prompt

on May 30, 2018

My Samsung Note 4 decided to report to the Android Heavenly realm on Friday night. 😇 My phone is officially broken!

I have been trying to wait for a special offer to pay $348 plus a year monthly contract sum of $95.80 to get my Samsung Note 8.

Just 3 days shy of the valid period to buy, my phone decides to malfunction. Sheesh!!

Since I was required to pay, I reluctantly said ok.

As luck would have it, my favorite Note 8 was out of stock!! Aargh!

The only other option was Galaxy S9+ and my damages to pay was a whopping $848!

Sheesh…if I had to pay that much for a dratted phone then why can I not have a phone of my choice?

So much for Lady Luck….and I am now $848 poorer and not with my phone choice.

I have to wait 2 years from now before my next update and still pay $98++ a month for phone subscription.

After paying for it and re-installing all my apps etc, guess what?! My “broken” phone decided to re-live and came out of its coma!

Sigh!! It is not funny God if you are pranking me!

So is my old Note 4 broken or not broken? Hmmm

P.s. But I was told Samsung Galaxy S9+ has the best camera!!

      LOL! Samsung and iphone are neck to neck here in sales. Iphone is the most expensive phone here. I bought it as no choice as Oppo or Huawei or Xiaomi is not compatible with alot of my gadgets including car bluetooth kit. Samsung allows me to do my personal stuff instead of lugging a laptop. Yes!! For wordpress, emails and whats app but increasingly more for govt submissions for taxes etc. So sad I had to pay so much. The phone without contract is about $1,400+

  2. Ugh! My phone is likely on its last legs. I’m dreading having to get a new one because of the cost. But the other option – live without one – is something I don’t think I can do, as work expects me to be available most of the time.

    That sucks! I have an iPhone and while I love my phone, I don’t know what I would do if it decided to crap out on me! I refuse to get an X because I like my home button and don’t want to swipe.

    These contracts, sucks! We are paying way too much on the network connection…

    I’m so old school…my Samsung only is allowedto call, text, and take photos. Mum’s cellphone plan is as limited as her house internet! 😂😂
    Can’t imagine being in your shoes…..yikes!
