I'm Busy, you gize....

... figuring out my new iPhone!



Merry Christmas to me! Oh, and I got one for Gty too. It is a glorious day.

I feel like I'm out of the dark ages. I watched my SeattleSix YouTube video on it just because I could (it's been viewed 76 times, btw).

Technology is such a time saver/waster.

Good news: Unlimited texting (fer duh), internet access, email, GPS, now I can listen to the Twilight soundtrack on my phone, etc.

Bad news: No longer on Verizon (this only affects a few of you).

We can still be friends though, right?

Now I just have to convince Shed to get me one!! I'm not jealous AT ALL btw. Cuz I don't get jealous.

Hot Pants said...

I just called Verizon and bumped up my minutes, so all is good.

Landee said...

You HAVE to have one Memzy! I mean, email, phone calls, blogging & texting daily is just NOT enough contact for us! We gotta have... w/e else the iPhone can do for us.

PS What is that app that turned Rod into Corky?

PSS HotPants, you don't know how nice it is to hear you say that. I've been fretting all day. <--- not a joke.

Jenny ESP said...

You spoiled little elf, you! So, are we all moving to AT&T then? Is that the plan? I'll go send you a picture to test your new phone...

Landee said...

Totally the plan, Jenny. Remember our "Goals for 2009" meeting we had? This was one of them.

Carol said...

OOOOOHHHH I'm so happy for you. Actually, I was confused about why you didn't have one already--you being so techno savvy and all. Be prepared for incoming photos on the regulah from Aunt Visah. Maybe tomorrow. Charlie, Liesl and Owen and I (and Becca) are going to the abreviated Nutcracker for school kids tomorrow. I'll see what I can do.

I totally know what you mean. When I got my $20 bottom of the line Samsung Cricket phone with no camera, I was stuck in my house for days trying to figure it out. For example, if you push the * key down and hold, it will lock the keys. That is essential because it is not a flip phone. It is the old fashion, I mean "classic" kind.

BTW, I am jealous because I am the jealous kind.

Landee said...

But Eeka, at least you could totally use it in Seattle! Oh wait.... nm.

Everyone plzthanks send me pics, texts, essays, w/e. I just left a comment on Memzy's site via my phone even though I was 1 foot away from my computer just to test it out. Totally worked.

I am so jealous. You should see my phone. It is barbie pink. It has been mistaken for a toy on several occasions (it is standard issue), and it has been run over (I kid you not). On the bright side, I don't think your iphone could hold up to the kind of abuse I inflict on phones.

At least I have the satisfaction of knowing that your tithing dollars are helping to pay for my BYU provided piece of crap.

Jenny said...

Very nice. I'm a little jealous. :)

Landee said...

We don't pay tithing Markie! How do you think we can afford these phones?

PS I just posted this comment from said phone. This is fun.

Memzy said...

That app was called Face Melter Landerson. I can't member if it is standard or you have to buy but it was cheapo.

And Hot Pants, she srsly was fretting all day.

Landee said...

K, not all day...but at least for like 45 minutes.

::getting facemelter ASAP::

Markie23 said...

My BYU POC is on Verizon, so those of you who use to talk to Landee for free can call me now instead :o)

Landee said...

It was $1.99... this is the gift that keeps on taking.

Just to clear something up... I am keeping my old Verizon phone for a while (Gty needs to stay on Verizon for work purposes & my phone is nothing to still have it added on) so if you Verizoners need to CALL call the 437 number... if you wanna text, text the new 990 numbah.

Life is so complicated.

welcome to the iphone generation! my life changed significantly once i got it. check out the shazaam app. here a song on the radio you like, don't know the name? hit "tag it" on shazaam and it will tell you what the song is, and then, once you get into wifi you can download it direct from itunes. or watch the video on youtube. i don't know how i survived life without it. i facebook all day on my iphone (they have an app too)

Landee said...

Oh my Righty!! I already have Shazam... I keep testing it on songs I already know just to make sure it's legit. There is a little thrill seeing the song pop up.

And Facebook was the first app I downloaded. I gotsta keep up with my "friends!"

Hot Pants said...

watch out for those facebook viruses.

Anonymous said...

Well.. I guess this is the end. I can't be using my unlimited ANYliteralTIME minutes and texting on you. Traitor.

P.S. AJ says hello and gidday.

Memzy said...

shazaam is the shiz

Katie said...

There is a girl in my ward that plays on her iphone all during sunday school and relief society. I wish I had an iphone. I would only use it to look up lyrics for the hymns...That is totally what I would tell myself anyways.

She has a protected post ESP. What good is having ESP if you don't know that? srsly.

Landee said...

Katie, I downloaded the "Scriptures" app so I can play in Sunday School and then claim I was looking up scriptures. Just one of the perks of the iPhone. Or I could actually look up scriptures, I guess. Yawnfest.

Jenny, thanks for all the reminders of the date you've been sending. You're like my own personal iPhone.
