Cell Phone Debacle

Happy Sunday sweets!  How is your weekend so far?  Great, I hope!  Mine has been good, but I'm still completely worn the heck out and tomorrow is already Monday again.  How does that happen?  *sigh*  

On another note, after being an Iphone kinda girl for years, I decided to try out the Samsung Galaxy SIII, when I noticed Best Buy was having a HUGE sale on it the day after Thanksgiving.  Thing was, I had already  bought the phone itself, the month before that.  So... I took it back up to Best Buy and told them the situation and said I wanted them to price match it for me.  Well.... the one manager who was a HUGE jerk wouldn't have any part of it.  Although, I had told him that I had already spoken to HIS boss earlier that day and he's the one who told me to come there and that it would be taken care of.  The reason the jerk didn't want to do it though, was because Best Buy had already published in their ad that it would not be doing ANY price matching during that weekend.  Well.... excuse me??!!  I paid $200 bucks back in October for the same phone they were discounting the day after Thanksgiving for $49.99 and I was NOT about to lose $150 of my hard earned money!  After standing around for 30 minutes, I went to a different lady, who was in management of some sort and she discounted it immediately and gave me back my money, no questions asked.  She said that the BIG BOSS had already said to go ahead and do it.  However, I was prepared to give my phone back completely and make them redo all of the paperwork since I was within my 30 days of returning the product policy.  

The reason I am telling you all of this, is because after 3 months of having and using the Samsung Galaxy SIII, I have decided I just did NOT like it, no matter how hard I tried.  I have always had either the Blackberry or the Iphone, ever since they first came out.  But, when Best Buy had the hot deal going on, I decided to give it a shot.  Never will I do that, ever again.  I have determined, that no matter what, I am a true diehard Apple fan and iphone girl thru and thru.  I don't know if it's because they are so much easier to use, or if it's because I was just so used to the iphone.  Either way, it doesn't matter, as I will never leave my iphone again - no.matter.what.  However, on another note, you may think I went straight for the Iphone 5 - but you, my friend, would be sadly mistaken.  I LOVE the Iphone 4S and do not like the looks of the Iphone 5.  I don't like that they made it longer instead of wider on the screen.  I, for one, am almost 45 and going blind already, and to make the screen more narrow in the Iphone 5, was NOT COOL in my book.  :)  Anyway, I was able to sell my Samsung Galaxy SIII for $410 on Ebay (woo hoo - can you say, profit?!) 

It just so happened that I got on Ebay the day that I was selling my Galaxy to see if they had any good deals on the 16gb 4S.  But, it cost more for a new 16gb 4S then most phones, and I couldn't believe it.  Even the 5's were extremely high priced.  So... I decided to do what any other frustrated Iphone girl would do - scope out Craigslist, of course! :)  Needless to say, I hit it right on the money when I got on there, because there was someone who had just listed their 32gb Iphone 4S for only $380!  The best part????  He worked a block from my office!!  Can you say....meant to be??!! :)  So... there you have it.  Are any of you as picky about your gadgets as I am?  I am crazy picky, so I wondered if it is just me?  Bueler....Bueler??? :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by!  

Lots of love and hugs,


  1. Glad you were about to sale your old phone and buy the Iphone you wanted! :) Im not to picky. Never had an Iphone either. I do have an android and seem to like it pretty much. I would probably be as lost and confused as you were switching from iphone to samsung, if I got an iphone. LOL

  2. My hubby and I got the Samsung Galaxy SIII and we love them. Sorry it didn't work out for you but glad that you were able to sell for a profit and find what you wanted.


Sweet Love From My Friends
