Twilight Galaxy

I need another electronic device like I need a hole in the head.

But my work Blackberry Curve was dead - or at least close to DNR - so replace it I must.

Actually, I didn't have to. They were encouraging us to use our own mobile devices, but that wasn't working for me on multiple levels.  First, that means all my staff and clients have my personal cell phone number.  No way Jose.

Secondly, while they'd pay for a new device, they weren't going to throw any cash my way for using my own iPhone. So, let me get this straight - you want me to use my own device for work and pay for it without being compensated?

Je don't think so.

So, I had my choice of a new Blackberry (been there), an iPhone (done that) or a Galaxy S3.

Oh, what the fuck, I went for the S3. If nothing else, I wouldn't get confused by which phone was which, right?

The screen is pretty enough, but I can't say I'm thrilled with the phone itself.  It's cumbersome, it's not that intuitive and......well, I'm sure there's something else.

I suppose it is fine for work, but I don't see me changing over to Samsung once my Apple / AT&T contract is up.

Really, you are such a Gear Queer. Both mobile phone hotties? Ah, the dilemmas in life. Guess you will need to go to therapy and work on your grip strength.

The Galaxy S3? Really? They didn't just give you a flip phone?

I was actually thinking today. Strange, I know. But I wonder if the iPhone is dual-line capable? I'm running into the "problem" of having to hand out my personal number so clients can text me a picture or something-or-another of a tattoo they want. I LOATHE giving out my personal number like that. But I'm too cheap to buy a work phone. So far.

In December, I got the big brother to the Galaxy S3 -- the Galaxy Note II. So far, I love it and can't believe how much time I use for everything in addition to a phone. I have found some great apps. Can't compare it to the iPhone, cause I've never had one.
