The New Phone

Yeah baby! This is the best model I've owned so far and like the ever derisive Fats quickly supplied, "That's not saying very much."
It's true though, I haven't had very many nice phones. This is mainly owing to the fact that I tend to lose them more often than I use them (I'm not a phone person at all!) After much thought (Those winding queues to reclaim your number at the telecom office really gave me time to think) and several phones - various models and various price points - I've arrived at the following conclusion: The cost of a phone plus the way it looks is inversely proportionate to my chance of keeping it.
For example, take the pretty Motorazr. I got it at half price (a press-only offer). I lost it about two weeks later.
I own a basic Nokia for whenever I'm between phones. Now when I say basic, I mean really basic - feature-bereft, ugly as sin and asexual as far as being identifiable as a girl's phone or a boy's phone goes. This phone was created to be an interim phone. And. It. Just. Never. Goes. Away. Like a loser who's desperately in love with you. Great for rebounds, but you'd rather be dead than be seen together in public. Mixed feelings.
So given the history here I'm cherishing this phone because as I see it we don't have very much time left together. "Or you could take care and just not lose a phone again?" chimes the mater.
I do take care of my phones. But as with all things in life, shit doesn't happen till it does.
